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.
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.
These piglets are for sale! Please visit our Piglets Available page for more information.
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!
Maybelline had her babies on July 3 and all four of them are healthy and active! There are 3 girls and 1 boy. They have already learned how to find the heat lamp at night, and yesterday they found their way outside and began to explore the nursery paddock.
