    Smaller pigs do run and jump and play a lot so long as they are healthy and happy....even our big pigs will run and play just kind of more in slow motion :gig The pigs really should have grown a noticeable amount in a month, in small pigs after about 2 weeks of good feed you should have seen quite noticeable growth. I will go thru and watch all your pig videos this evening....if time allows.

    If you want to try to tape them again, withhold the morning feeding and then during the evening feeding while they are eating try to tape...generally pigs are a lot more tolerant when they are eating. If it still doesnt work, try the same thing again but just pet them a bit, eventually they wont care what you do while they are eating and will be a lot more tolerant of things you need to do when they are not eating. This is how we break pigs we didnt raise to accept and want us touching them.....except our mini boar he is just a jerk. :smack

    Here is some footage from this weekend. You can see they have grown. It just doesnt seem to be that significant of growth for a month. I will say that, because they were loaded with worms when we got them, I think we have been playing catch-up and we are hopeful that their growth rate will continue to increase now that they are healthier. Also I can say with confidence they are MUCH happier pigs. Enjoy. If yall like these videos please like subscribe and comment it really helps the channel and we would love to hear from you.
