Pig rolled over!
« on: September 05, 2012, 04:58:25 pm »
My pig rolled over for me today!!
The other day, he did it, too, but then he popped back up.
But this morning, I was scratching him and he plopped over and was nice and calm! He nearly rolled all the way over, it was so cute!
=D
How are pigs so oddly comfortable rolling around like that, but won't just stand still near me..?

So cute  :thumbsup:

You'll find as they get more used to you they'll lie for ages getting a belly rub - all our Kunekunes do  ;)

I notice the pink fella has a metal ear tag in his ear - just keep an eye on that as he grows incase it begins to cut into the ear or cause a problem. If it happened to fall out (but don't try to take it out - it'll destroy any trust he has in you for one thing) I wouldn't rush to replace it, unless you can get the little round tags that go further into the ear.

Yea, I don't have anything that will cut such thin wire, so I can't remove it. The tag's made itself a 1/2in hole, so right now, it moves freely. I don't like the tags, only tag my sheep when they leave the farm, as required by law.

I've got too much green and not enough critters eating it up, lol.

It's still so strange for me to see a pig just flop over like that...
