    Hi!! We went to north jersey to take a look at a truck lift tonight, and talking to the guy, discovered he had a piggy. He told us his Grandmother feels bad for it, so she keeps feeding the pig... Which makes for a really big pig. The poor guy can't see for fat rolls [​IMG] they mean well by him, but cannot keep him. If anybody knows of a rescue, or would be willing to help out, that would be WONDERFUL!! I can come back up and get him with my horse trailer or put you in touch with the owner. I have a picture I will post as soon as I get home. Any help would be appreciated - pig is only 2 years old, house trained, and friendly considering he can't see.
