Thanks in advance

Hi there,

Agree with Di, those would be my first choice for kunekune pig keeping.

Another good book which I also have is the 'Hayne's Pig Manual' by Liz Shankland.

Happy reading!! :D

Thank you... I've placed the order for the first 2 but I did see the Haynes book and the reviews looked good.
Looking forward to reading about them and eager to own a couple although I won't rush in until I am feeling confident.
