Oh my... in the spring, who DOESN'T love the sun? Specially after a few cold evenings or dreary weather... Just warms the body through and through.

I got more pictures of the little troublemakers today. I have started to get them used to handling more often by giving them rubs and such. Also Priss has rejected Lucy as one of her own. Its really upsetting and now Lucy has to live in the barn until she is big enough to fend for herself

Hehe I love these pigs and I feel so lucky we get to preserve this breed. They are so unique and also very hardy.

How can that be??? Lots of curly hair at 2 months. Do they lose their stripes or do they have darker hair in the dark striped areas?
All the blondes have lost their stripes swallowbellies go until about 4 months then they fade.
