Lol are you spying on me lol it's funny how different these tiny guys are. My durocs were sweet as can be but dh thought they were creepy lol they come running for pets. Two of these are like that the other three just want food. The boar is our favorite dd1 has asked to keep him even if he fixed she wants a pet pig and she wants him to come inside when Texas gets Montana's snow okay lol.

Okay so today was pretty good can't say i got much done but had its ups and downs. Anyways so this afternoon i took some slop to miss prissy our original female (one of the three black potbellies) anyways Sally the adult female kune mix follows the smell and tries to break in to get the slop she finally found a weak spot where miss priss had dug a mud hole and once in she like oo mud so she rolls for awhile then priss notices and Sally notice priss and they have it out. I am decide i won't get involved unless they don't figure it out and it gets worse. Mostly smacking each others sides pushing and some biting but they both so round neither gets a hold or an actual bite on the other. So after 10 minutes of them still not giving up i figure i better break it up before they over heat being 90+. So i go grab my (was a shovel handle before the head broke off) stick aka Sheppard staff to my kids lol. And go open the gate to prisses pen and they both stop look up at me and break it up lol the look on their faces was funny oh your here great okay we done. I imagine it's not the end of their disagreement but they both went for the water once Sally was back where she belonged and priss had her pen to her self again. Silly pigs. And I do believe priss might be either in heat or about to have babies so didn't see a milk linr but still watching her vulva was swollen so we see i know miss priss is in heat so that didn't help their moods any lol so much unplanned play date.

Yup pretty sure she in heat. Our little boar isn't interested at all go figure. Boys. I am thinking they younger then he claimed just basised off priss's additude the smaller piglets go in with her all the time its only the one that's near her size aka Sally she gets into it with.

Well I feel horrible now. I have been checking little lady halter regularly but apparently i missed something. The part that goes under her chin had gotten to tight well i didn't notice until today and apparently it started to get infected i am currently cooling off and letting her eat grain. And hoping dh gets home soon so i can have his help to clean it. And hopefully go to the store and get some medicine
