Re: " Kunekune girls to rehome

Hello,
I'm so sorry about the predicament you found yourself in and I was wondering if you found a home for your ladies? I am hoping to find some kunekune that need a home.
Thanks,
Amanda

Re: How big an area of mud!

Thank you Simon. I am feeding them the A&P pot bellied nuts 2x a day. They put on weight on grazing so I did cut the feed back then.
Any thoughts on what area I can confine them to?

How big an area of mud!

My boys would love to have expert opinions on their ancestry! I would be grateful for advice on the size of 'mud' area they will be happy in. Also any thoughts on what I can give them to make thir days more interesting. They have been happily grazing all summer in a large paddock. I filled one or tw...

Re: Advice for a new pig carer

Thank you Wendy. I appreciate your thoughts. I think you have a lot more experiences than my vet! She did offer to PM but also said he hadn't sen inside a pig since vet school and might not find anything. I decided not to. I did find a nice knacker man who collected her and will bring her ashes back...

Re: Advice for a new pig carer

Maggie died on Friday. It would be kind if anyone could give me an idea why. We didn't know her age but her teeth and gums looked good. No matter what I did Maggie did not gain weight. She was not unhappy, just thin. She ate with gusto but quite suddenly she became difficult/fussy to feed. She would...

Re: Too much grazing?

Great thank you Wendy. I had read that Kunekune could live on grazing but was worried as I don't know exactly what these boys are...other than great fun of course! They are very happy and I'll be careful they don't burst!

Re: Advice for a new pig carer

Thank you both so much for thinking about Maggie. She is such a sweetie she deserves to be really well. I have flaked sugar beet, called Speedy Beet. I use this for my elderly Shetland to keep her weight up especially in the laminitis season. I searched for sugar beet in the feeding forum but only f...

Too much grazing?

I have 2 castrated lads of a year old, Winston and Stanley. They are from a rescue centre and had never grazed until I had them. One especially is possibly too fat. Obviously they would eat 24/7 if I let them but I don't! I have their ark in a paved area with a wallow which thy will wee and poop in,...

Re: Advice for a new pig carer

Thank you for replying Simon. Yes she has been wormed by injection and I am using verm-x. I am feeding her double the allowance for the weight she is at present. I have no idea what weight she should be. She is not a small pig. Her legs are quite long. I have seen some huge Kunekune pigs, she is not...

Advice for a new pig carer

Hello, I would be grateful for some advice on how to fatten up one of my pigs. I have three 'rescued pigs', they appear to be KuneKune but obviously I can't be certain. They are grazers for sure and the two boys of a year old are fine and I have to take care they don't get too porky! I also have a S...
