In my March Review I mentioned that some pigs have appeared close to the road on one of our hacking routes. Basil was really unsure about going past them the first time and we crossed the road so that we weren't so close. I wasn't sure if it was because of the noise they were making pushing their bowls about but since then I have found out that many horses are afraid of pigs.
Pigs do smell different and often make plenty of noise either squealing or grunting.
They are quite nosy too and so, unlike sheep, often come up to the fence or hedge to watch a horse go by. They often run up squealing and grunting in groups. This is obviously going to scare a lot of horses.
