    Kune Kune can be bigger than the pot bellies but different body type. Julianas are very small!! Mule foots are getting more popular as miniature pigs. A miniature pig is nomrally crossings of miniature pot bellies and the Julianas

    mini pig breeds are gottinger and Indonesisch mini pigs (not from indonisia but from germany)....they do not have a big pot belly like pot bellied pigs. my smallest adult is just 30cm of the ground [​IMG]
    (i breed both) gottinger are slightly bigger and more like the wild pigs
    there is also one called M√ľnchener. the indonesisch are a registerd breed here, a cross between the gottinger and the M√ľnchener. not sure if you can read dutch but theres some illustrations here..
