Just thought I would update the louse problem!
« on: September 01, 2011, 12:13:09 am »
I just wanted to say that I have injected the Ivermectin which was not that easy-my first time with boisterous pigs!But I have to say,wow,what a result! no more itching pigs,no more lice  ;D,they are really very happy now,having more tummy rubs than usual,snoring away,my oh my,it is so lovely when you are sitting there with them and they adore attention!

Amazing that an animal so strong can be so soft!
