Daisy and Poppy love to be rubbed. In this video they came into the barn hoping for scratches–and look a little bummed that Scott couldn’t stay longer.
Daisy and Poppy sit and wait for their treat
Such polite little pigs!
Daisy and Poppy have learned the command “sit.” Their bottoms go down, their noses come up, and after a brief interval, they get a piece of carrot or apple or other delicious treat.
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.
Buckeye in his new home
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!
Piglet family at 5 weeks of age
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.

Kunekune piglets playing
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!
