I figure if I'm not breeding her, having her spayed would be the healthiest for her, and I've read that when they go into heat they can be tempermental and it messes w/ their potty training. I've also heard it's best to spay them earlyish, so not something I can wait and see and do later.
One note on size and feeding, genetics is what will determine their adult size, they need their diet monitored because they are prone to obesity. A PBP can be 150lbs and be an ideal weight for that pig! Another PBP can be 150lbs, and be 50lbs over weight. Just saying monitored feeding is important, but genetics will be the real determiner. I know everyone here is meeting their pig's needs, I'm just mentioning this in case someone misunderstands, I know some breeders reccommend starving piglets to keep them small, and some just aren't ment to be.
Hilda is eating about 2 cups of food devided into 3 feedings a day, she was getting free choice until maybe a week ago, she was starting to get pudgy so I cut her back, she's looking just right now, so we're sticking w/ this feeding schedule.
And for those that have or are planning to teach tricks, I'd love it if you'd share what you have taught or are planning to teach with those of us that are looking for ideas! Hilda has learned sit and spin around, and is learning to sit up. I want to teach her something that involves pushing, she already loves to rearrange her furniture.
