I can't find out why yet. But i are still looking. However i found that some pig farmers cut off a bit of the piglets' tails soon after they are born. This is because piglets often chew each other's tails!

I don't have an answer to that. But, not all pig breeds have a tail that curls. I suppose it is just the way they were created. Same as any other being.
