I wouldn't be worried. I've had my little Maddie Pig for almost a year. She even came over from HI no problems! I know this is off topic of swine flu but PLEASE, if you've never had a pig, do your homework first. They are wonderful but can take some getting used to at first. Plus, a lot of people don't realize just how big they actually get... Even a "mini" pig will get bigger than what I'd consider mini, unless you get into the specific bloodlines, which is why I went to HI for my baby girl... Please take a look at my site if you'd like to see pics - you'll find Maddie's piggy page on therethe breeders website that I got maddie at is islandforest.com... So anyway, have fun if you do get a piggy they are wonderful!!
