    We went to our first livestock auction....and a friend put her hand up for a lil pig. Well now she is ours. Her name is Petunia so far but this could change. I really dont have a lot of experience with pigs so I think as with most other things I will be up tonight reading about it....

    Awww, she's got such pretty eyes. Is she old enough to be away from her mom? She looks very small.

    I'm going to a poultry auction next week. I will be tying my hands to my sides! LOL!

    You know I really dont know how old she is...But tomorrow I will be getting some goats milk for her. We will go from there. She is a pot bellied pig...so maybe thats why she looks so small.

    I have always wanted to go to a livestock auction but I'm always nervous that the animals aren't in the healthiest condition [​IMG]

    I had a pot bellied pig. They don't stay small very long. Scooter got big. She lived in the back yard, played with the dogs, beat on the back door for a cookie and bit strangers. Fortunately, the back yard is fenced so not too many people went back there that didn't belong there, but if they did, Scooter nailed them. It was funny to see somebody running from a pig.
