    It's taken me a few months to find any PB pigs around our area, but we have finally welcomed home Wilbur a 3.5 month old PB!
    He has the sweetest personality, and is warming up to us very quickly!
    He took his first walk around the farm today (on his own little harness) and seemed pleased with all his neighbors AKA the chickens, ducks, dogs, rabbits and our two Yorkshire pigs!

    Now if only we can find this little guy a buddy!


    Also if anyone can tell me if its save to remove the tag he has on? I would rather he not have it since we don't need it at our farm hes the only PB we have!

    It's perfectly safe to remove the tag. Just cut the piece that goes through the ear with sharp scissors & pull the two pieces away.

    [​IMG] I absolutley HATE those tags. Yes, get it out of his ear. If it looks goopy or has fresh blood clean the ear flap good with an antiseptic.
    He is really cute. I just love those little faces!
