Suilline

Suilline simply means of the pig family. You know, like feline for cats, caprine for goats, equine for horses and supine for blocked writers.

  1. Hi Patsy - I didn't know the word ...lovely picture of the Tamworths though ... with all this rain and clouds of grey - you're probably right to be supine - or may be you are far, far away where the sun does shine! Cheers Hilary

  2. I've never heard that word before either...
    Been a while since I've seen any piggies close up - I might have to visit a farm park to rediscover them again.
