Pig in moult

Our dear little Bertie has gone from hairy pig

to bald pig in a matter of days.

What is going on? Is the pressure of fatherhood too much?

No, Bertie is simply moulting and will regain his lovely hair in a few weeks. Meantime we can help to keep his skin in good condition with baby oil.

Eat Your Greens

At just one week old these amazing little micro piglets are already trying to sample "grown -up" food.

Just look at these little ones tasting the veg!

Of course they are still dependant on Mum for their nourishment and as you can see trying adult food can be thirsty work.

My Little Teacup Pigs

So tiny that they can stand in the palm of your hand the new piglets are so very endearing. It's a shame that some unscrupulous folk have led people to believe that they will stay this size. They won't by the time they are a year old they will be as big as their parents.
