A pig uses a slide installed by farmer Erik Stegink (Pictrure: EPA)A farmer in Holland has installed a mud slide for his pigs after being inspired by the flumes at a water park.
Erik Stegink mounted a disused slide he had bought from a nearby pool on his farmland.
And in no time at all his pigs were enjoying their own amusement park, but instead of water they were diving into mud.
Another pig skids down the slide (Picture: AFP/Getty)Pictures of the pigs on the slide have proved to be a hit online, with many commenting on how much fun the animals looked like they were having.
LONZoëDON wrote: ‘Pig on a slide. I kinda need video of this as I’m pretty sure it’s epic.’
Elana Zak was also impressed and added: ‘Need a smile? One of the photos of the day is of a pig going down a slide.’
Pigs gather in a mud pool with the slide seen in background (Picture: EPA

What goes on in Pig Farms people don't want to see.. Having one or two pigs for personal use can be clean, but large farms with hundreds of swine??? Many farms feed their swine garbage from unwanted food waste. Between the food waste and the pig waste, it can be a very smelly and dirty business.
