    I'm picking these two up on Sunday. They are 6-8 months old. I have my pots and love them but I have been looking for a few big pigs just because I'm nuts about big pigs. These are pets and I hope they will stay that way. If so they can hang out with the pots, once they get used to our place.
    And they were free! I know, I know.....buying a pig is the cheapest part of having one. [​IMG]

    Thanks. They are cute. I can't wait to get them here. The spotted one looks like he has writing on his side. (ing?) Any idea of what breeds they are? Probably some sort of mix.​

    Breed could be a mix of spotted poland china and chester white. They will grow quite large!

    They are younger then 6-8 weeks old in those pics correct? The pics look like 3 month olds.
