Noah’s Thoroughbred Racing Pigs is fun-filled enjoyment for all ages. From the bugle race call, through the obstacles, to the last snout in the finishing trough, crowds will be cheering their preferred pig to the end. The pigs are neck and neck, trotter to trotter, racing for the trough…..finally they reach the finish line, pushing and shoving to get their snout in the trough first.
