    I just got me one today. I decided that I wanted one about a week ago and I found a guy in a nearby city who was moving and didn't want to take him with and he gave him to me. He is a mini as he only weighs about 40 pounds. His name is Mortimer.

    I am a new piggie owner. I do have a forum asking if my pig is pregnant.....and she is. I didn't know it when I bought her. Sadly it will have been her brother that got her. I love her to death and I will have to admit I have been out smarted by her. Getting her into my bathroom yesterday was a chore. I am having issues medically with her and I am worried. If anyone know a good bit about pigs please contact me. Also read my forum and it will let you know what is going on. I never thought pigs would be such a joy but she is.
