Pure awesomeness!! When I saw that 5 second video, I said to myseff, BOAR!! Little sucker just has the shape and attitude! You need to get one of those box cutters with a brand new razor blade in it, and hold him down and slit his little sack and clip the jewels out, then if you have it, douse him with some iodine. If not, whether iodine or not, stuff the incision with Vaseline. When we used to trap 'em in the woods, we'd cut 'em right away and shoot the sack full of axle grease... Just keeps em from getting infected and keeps bleeding to a minimum...

We used to feed ours milk and white bread warmed in the microwave when they were small enough to fit in a coffee can. As they got bigger, about the size of yalls we'd transition them to dog food soaked in milk, then weaned the milk off to just plain dog food. About the 5th one we raised was named Ol' Roy, from the sack of dog food he'd eat a week.....

Default *Bi-polar pig!

He's starting to come around, I think. Last couple days we've seen vast improvements.

Eatn great. (And maybe "great eatn" in a few mos).

*Bloodied me up a little today. But next minute he's a lap dog.

Loves belly and behind the ears scratches, lol. Acting just like a dog. Even fast kicks one back leg when ear scratching.

Default Scratching

If you can get him still long enough to start petting him, he will go into a sleep like trance and just fall over once you start scratching his side/belly.

Maybe he thinks Ethan is "Momma", grooming him ???

It's pretty funny.

Ethan is my Grandson. He & his lil sis (Bella) live w/us, along w their Dad - my stepson.

Their mom left us w the kids when Bella was 6 mos (aced a drug test). That was 5 yrs ago. Long story. Tough on em missing "mom", if you can call her that.

Short story..... - These kids are getn a lil "spoiled".

(Kinda hidden above, but posted video of the "scratchn", lol).

Boaris is doing great.

Not as "tame" as we'd like, but can pet him and walk around him with no issues. He actually comes to us now.

We put a dog leash/harness deal on him the other day. He wore it fine until we actually clipped the leash on.

Pig on a string! It held until he turned around and pulled out backwards! His head is smaller than his body and he simply stepped out of it.

Gonna try and tighten it up for round 2 this wknd.

When our litter of pups was starting to open their eyes we put cat collars on them. Each collar differen, thats how we told them apart.
We put about 6" of Paracord on the collars as well. They wore them all the time. They leash broke themselves.

I've no experience with training pigs!
I would suggest putting 6-8" of Paracord on the harness and leaving it on 24/7. It'll drag and get hung up on things. Eventually he should be leash broke. Just keep an eye out for it getting hung up too bad. If it does just go un tangle it for him and give him a treat when you do.

Derek, AWESOME update! Don't know how I missed this. You're right, he's growing fast! Looks like he will be gray when the stripes are gone. Cool color. Keep pouring the feed to him and you can get him to a hunert pounds or more in 6 months!
