    He is the biggest hog we have ever had. Enormous. Hogs really never stop growing. Boars can reach over 1,000 pounds. I read an article about a boar that weighed over 1.400 pounds. We won't keep Wilbur that long...….LOL

    Yup, they make a mess. Your puking pig probably got something crossways. Sometimes my sheep eat pellets so fast that they choke. I have lifted them up and done the Heimlich maneuver on them. LOL LOL

    .... SO HOW DID IT TURN OUT?????? :confused:

    Did they stay in their pen? Did you have to move them? Was it as awful as you feared it might become? Will you raise more? Did you ever take them to slaughter? Did the smell ever get out of the barn?
    Future piggy owners want to know!!!!!
