    Finally took the plunge and both a pair of true-blue certified mini- pot belly pigs from a recommended breeder. they are all black, 7 months old and very healthy & friendly. I picked them out today and go back tomorrow to pick them up. They are getting baths, hooves clipped and a good nights rest - hope i can get one too!

    Cool

    I hope you enjoy them.

    I have always wondered about them, but really have no room to play.

    Post up some pics when you get them settled.

    Congratulations!!!

    You will love them. I have 2 girls, Annibelle was 2 on V-Day and Penelope will be 6 months old this week.

    My girls love doing tricks, lay down, beg, belly rub and spinning in circles when they want to eat.

    They love Acorns too and blankies to hide and sleep in.

    Please be sure the male is fixed, as momma can reproduce as early as 6 months with 1-12 babies and she can have 3 litters a year.

    Good Luck!!

    BTW: The is a Pig section on Backyardherd, the sister site.
