They are both beautiful. I love pigs so much! I really want a miniature one, but our property isn't big enough. :(

Yes, you are right. He's more social than a chihuahua and rarely barks. He also housetrained very well. He gets along with our pig, cat, and rabbits. He's really perfect for us.

LOL!!! That's why we named him Jagger. He DOES move like Mick Jagger! He prances around and wiggles... if that gives you an accurate description...lol

LOL... I know what you mean. I reallly have to watch her diet CLOSELY! She grazes on grass A LOT... goes under the barn and eats the chicken feed that falls thru a particular crack... then she goes to the rabbit cage to see if they let any feed fall... and if she's lucky, the dog hasnt eaten all his food. She will also eat any crumb or thing that even smells like food.

Pigs are born without a thalamus gland... so their brains dont signal 'stop eating' when they're full. They constantly act like they're dying of starvation...lol.

I try to make sure she has adequate exercise... and I limit her 'treats'. NEVER any sweets or salty stuff... I just feed her mini pig chow stuff, and steamed veggies and frozen fruit (...on occasion in stead of ice cream)

I read that dry oatmeal is a good food substitute to give them when they're getting too big. I take a handful and scatter them on the floor. She picks up every single crumb!!!
