Re: Escaped big...any ideas be grande!

He was the less dominant used to back down when gizmo was in rough and tumble mood. He's still eating like a trooper and enjoys a good fuss, think I was initially paranoid as now the weathers hit and miss he only lays out when he's mildly warm rest of time he goes into his arc and chills. Will keep ...

Re: Escaped big...any ideas be grande!

Just wondered if my lone male will suffer with sadness or any signs I should look out for? He's eating and drinking but seems to outside his arc a lot laying on the concrete and mud could this just be because it's warmer outside and he's cooling off? Never did it when gizmo was about so just curious...

Re: Escaped big...any ideas be grande!

Well it's the worse scenario you could of ever imagined gizmo had to be shot by a vet, was gaining ground the last time I posted on here, got him to come over etc few strokes. I then roped two friends and my parents in to try and get him corralled into a pen so he was still close to the females but ...

Re: Escaped big...any ideas be grande!

I've been just sat letting him come over to me and giving him the odd grape but he's still hesitant for me to stroke him. The neighbours have been really good watching him while I go to work and what not. I've rang a few places to see if i can loan a horse box. There are two females in the pen and t...

Re: Escaped big...any ideas be grande!

As stated we cannot confine my pig...cannot capture him etc
It's already stressful enough and I have run out of ideas on how to get him back across the road to mine...would he be more recipient to food once the female is out of season?

Re: Escaped big...any ideas be grande!

Why thank you for your remarkable response which overall makes the whole bloody situation better, do you not think I'm aware of what you are saying? Yet people with this sort of response still have no clue as how to help me resolve the situation. So rather than telling me 'off' maybe look at the big...
