My three year old daughter adores and loves pigs. Since around June of this year, I've been wanting to get a pair of goats, but have been procrastinating on that.. One day while enroute to the local feed store with my daughter, I said to her, "maybe we'll go get those goats today" and she replied, "but daddy, I don't want goats, I want a piggy".. She really does like pigs too.. anytime and everytime she sees anything with a pig on it, she wants it, whether it's an article of clothing, or a toy, etc, etc. I have a small barn with a section I could pen up to be a stall for the pig and found an ad on craigslist for piglets for $60 and I am thinking about buying my daughter a piglet for christmas, however, it would end up my responsibility to care for and clean. I did some reading and estimate I'm in for 150lbs of feed per month plus table scraps. Does this sound about right? As for cleaning the pen, how much poop can I expect to be picking up daily for one pig. Is having just one pig ok, or do they get lonely? Since it will be my daughters pig, I would not be able to harvest it for food, however, in the event of an emergency or food disaster, what's the maximum age one should harvest a pig? What are any common issues/problems with pigs? And this one is important, if this piglet is raised around my child, is there still risk later on of this pig harming my child if they grow together? Oh, also.. what about free range? I'm not prepared to fence off the entire property, but would like to allow the pig to free range during the day.. Do they stay near home like a dog would, or even chickens? Another thing, there's fields, trails, etc and I got this silly idea in my head that we could take piggy for a walk.. Have you ever leashed a pig? lol.. Can a pig ride around the back of my pickup for a ride to the beach, lol Anything else I should know..
