Here Piggy Piggy Piggy!

Hey Lady Di - I am in need of your services! Do you travel? I have a piggy and he wants a hair cut. :0)


You may have remembered if you read our blog regularly that on Mothers Day Lady Di had to shave a pig. Strange to the majority of our followers unless you happen to be familiar with 4-H, FFA, or Livestock Shows. Lady Di and I grew up as 4-H brats: showing pigs, sheep, cows and yes you have to shave them before show. I practically was born at a fair! We both were raised on farms and naturally our kids will/are involved in the same great organization we were. So I immediately thought of Di and this post when I saw this little piggy!



Of course this isn't a pig you would see at a fair. This little piggy isn't actually a pig at all (I just found that out while doing this post) but a Javalina red. His mama died in a tractor accident on the ranch. One of our employees saved him and has taken him in. He is kinda cute and follows Jorge around as if he is his mother. One day he will not be so cute! These creatures get mean - The Hubs has been chased back into the house by a grown Javalina before. Now my girls want a pig for a pet.

Be sure to check out Lady Di's cute WW here.

That is one creepy looking piggy. I don't think I have ever seen one with hair.

He's just adorable. I've always wanted a pig for a pet. A friend had a potbelly pig in college, and her name was Lucy. What a friendly little critter. Their boar, though, he was not friendly, and he had tusks and bad eyesite. Not a great combo.

Oh how cute! But how sad that he doesn't have a mama. A pig for a pet would be awesome...I always wanted one also!

I can honestly say I don't think I've EVER seen one of those creatures in my LIFE. He is super cute though...hard to believe he could be so mean.

EEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!! I LOVE HIM! How cute is he? My mom adores pigs and my dad told her at one time if she got rid of her nasty rotten cocker spaniel she could have a pot belly pig of her very own....she turned it down!

Amy said...

Pigs are my favorite animals. Yes, the kind you have one your post grow large teeth kind of. I think they do I could be wrong. But I still think they are cute.

It is sort of cute in a creepy critter kind of way...

Mama Nut said...

Makes me want to squeeze him!

Trudy said...

He is cute but I wouldn't want to get too attached for fear of getting attacked later!

I think it would be very interesting to watch you shave the animals!

How is it that everything is SO CUTE when it's little and then it grows up to be just NOT?

I was thinking on this over the weekend when I had the pleasure of seeing pasture after pasture of little wobbly cows, and sheeps.
