… you just got the piglets to pose extra cutely for a photo, and then suddenly a horse is sticking his nose in where it doesn’t belong. 😉
Such polite little pigs!
This is a great behavior to train your pig to do as it engages their mind while also making it easier on you to feed, clean, and interact with them. Pigs aren’t as inclined to jump up to greet people as puppies are, but they do get excited to see you, and you’re not likely to accidentally trip over your pig if she’s sitting for a moment while you get situated.
Tammy sent us a picture of Buckeye in his new home in Roseville. She picked him up from Hakune Matata Pig Farm on Saturday and he’s settling in just fine!
Maybelline’s piglets are eating solid food now and mimicking their mama in every way, from grazing on the hay to cooling off in the pool. They love people and will even get up from a nap to come over and greet you. They enjoy being scratched, especially behind their ears, and they will flop happily on their sides to make it easier for you to rub their bellies.

The piglets enjoy running but are always happy to stop for a nice scratch behind the ears and a nap. This is why people love Kunekune pigs so much — in addition to their good looks, they make affectionate and friendly companions!

With piglets due on June 28, it was time for Maybelline to move into the nursery — her very own stall and paddock with all the modern conveniences for expectant and nursing mothers.
The stall is bedded with straw and equipped with a heat lamp to keep the piglets warm on cool nights. The outdoor paddock provides Maybelline with room to exercise and includes a water mister and baby pool for cooling off in a hot afternoon. A barrier between the stall and the paddock ensures that the piglets do not go outside until they are big enough to enjoy the privilege.
The mini donkeys and pony are curious about their new neighbor.
