This little fella joined us last week. We're so happy to have him with us even if he is a bit of a drama queen. 

We know he's going to get bigger - about 35k - but we'll be enjoying him as he is now and he won't be loved any less when he does grow.

Say hello to Duncan.

How cute is Duncan Smiley Happy

 

Pigs are such clever beasts.

Sadly too many people get them and then get rid of them when they grow.

There's a mini-pig 'scam' in that people are sold these cute little darlings under the impression they will stay small. Which makes people a bit naive for believing it really. They are pigs after all. 

I'm confident that Duncan will get to around 35kg max but, if he does get much bigger, I've no problem finding a house with a big garden for him (they like to stay outside).

Yes, and then they end up getting eaten or dumped.

Jamie, he's just beautiful.  I love pigs almost as much as I love miniature goats.  And pigs can be housebroken I hear, unlike goats.

 

My son once had a girlfriend whose family bought a "miniature Vietnamese pig".  It kept growing and growing and growing. Then it started getting out and running around the subdivision.  I think it eventually went to the shelter to be adopted.
