A few pictures of my new piglets!

Post by Charlie » Thu Dec 27, 2007 5:00 pm

Hello everyone, I have recently obtained two kune piglets from Sean Cassidy. I have had the pair ( brother & sister) for about 6-7 weeks now, and I am having a great time, thought I'd share a couple of pictures with you.

P.S. A members gallery would be a good addition to the new forum.

Hi Charlie

your piglets are beautiful. I bought 2 piglets in August 2006 from Di Howes in Dorset and they have been a delight to have. I have a small variety of animals at my home and most visitors come wanting to see the cute mini shetland but inevitably they leave in love with the kunekune boys, Boris and Basil. Most of my visitors just can't believe that they have stroked a pig and love the way they roll over for their bellies to be rubbed. Even though my boys are well grown now and are past the cute piglet stage they are still gorgeous and you couldn't get two nicer more placid chaps if you tried and even the smallest child is safe with them. I wish you many years of happy kunekune ownership and hope you enjoy all the fun and games that they will provide for you!

Your piglet photos are super. Enjoy every moment of them.

Judith - so glad you are still getting so much fun from your two boys. Its great to hear how my piglets are getting on and that owners are pleased with them. I agree with you kunekune pigs are really something special.

Hi Charlie,
I know I'm biased, but they are really good looking piglets! Much nicer than they looked on the miserable wet day you collected them.
I like the look of the barrell that they have taken up residence in?! Glad to see that they are thriving.

Regards Se?n :roll:

Hi Sean and Charlie

Charlie, I got my two girls, Smokey and Bacon, from Sean a year ago last November and they are such a delight, you will enjoy having them - how do the hens take to them? My goat is still not too keen and tries to bully them but she is so thick she doesn't realise they cannot be intimidated!!
Hi Sean, things are going well I see and yes Charlie's piglets are lovely!! But then I am probably biased too 'cause they are probably cousins (or some such) to mine. I like this new site by the way.

Hi Sean and Louise, yeah I agree, the best looking Kunes I have seen :wink:

The hens give them the odd peck on the snout which keeps them in check, I also have two minaute Schnauzers, who get bullied by my female kune, shes a nightmare! Where as my boar is very docile and affectionate. I suppose you could say this is also similar to humans :D
