    Just sharing some pics. Everyone loves a mini pig [​IMG]

    These are mini mulefoot pigs. They are very small. I have a trio of adults. One of the girls and the male are about 70 pounds. One of the girls is about 60 pounds. They are three years old so they are truly small. 70 pounds might sound big but pigs are really compacts. People usually think these guys are 40 pounds to look at them.
    I bred for one litter this year. These are the babies that are left. Ones a boy the other a girl. The girl is really small.

    They get really long hair in the winter. I think they look like russian hogs.
