update on mini pigs

Postby Lasergrl » Sat Feb 23, 2008 11:27 pm

Today Lulu actually flopped over for a belly rub. she has been asking for attention alot lately. It wasnt too long ago she was like a ferral pig. She is getting a little fat, which is giving her more of a pot belly and jowls then she really should have. I need to stop feeding her just because she screams for it.
The little one is the male. Its no kidding when they say pigs mature early. He is about 10 weeks old, and he tried to breed lulu. I had them out just to see if they would like to play. Well, not doing that again untill they are actually ready to breed!

they are adorable.

how big will they get, I remember everyone was talking about them, now I forget. are they smaller than a pot belly pig?

I wouldn't mind having a couple of them.
they are adorable.

if its any indication of size, Lulu is about 7 months old. Her parents were very small, in the 40# range.
I am getting a brown one from a breeder in Florida, they are tiny pigs, but dont have the farm pig look. I am trying to develop a tiny wild boar look a like. We'll see how that goes.

lasergrl,

wow, that is small for that age.
where do you keep them and do they root like normal size pigs?

when are you getting the one from florida?
are you going to breed them?

I am thinking about getting some later.
but,would like to know more about them first.

I may get a brown gilt meeting the guy at Mt hope, that is if he has a brown one.

They do root, I keep Lulu in the basement. They only root to get at food or out a door. Its not too bad, but, they will be outside as soon as its warm enough!

very cute pigs! What breed are they again, they might be something I would be interested in. I tottally agree with you about the potbellies, I dont like how they look either, and even though small they wiegh to much for me.

I am not sure if I am going to mt hope, but, if I do, I certainly would love to see them.

what day are you meeting the guy with the pigs?
