Brought home my first piglet today! - November 5th 2013, 02:20 AM

So I recently moved to a 31 acre farm with my parents. I have 6 dogs (2 indoor, 4 outdoor), 6 cats (2 indoor, 4 outdoor), 2 horses, 2 goats, 1 rabbit, and 2 mice. My parents are going to be getting around 15 pigs to raise and butcher, and I wanted one for myself that wouldn't end up on my plate. So today I brought home Bentley! He is a Juliana/mini potbelly cross and will be at the most 50 lbs. when full grown. He is going to be raised with my 4 outdoor kittens, so he'll probably grow up thinking he's a cat. I love the little guy already. He is housebroken and I wish I could have him inside, but I can't due to no one else wanting a pig inside.
He was quite stressed at first and nearly made me deaf from a screaming fit when I had to pick him up (pigs generally hate being picked up), but he took a nap and must have had a good dream since he was wagging his tail in his sleep.
Here are pics of my Benny-boo!

Aw, Bentley is super cute! I've always wanted a little piggy but I don't have the space and I'm pretty sure my landlord would object

Aw, how cute! I've always wanted a pig, so I'm a tad jealous, but I hope you have lots of fun with him. Are you going to get him a little harness and talk him for walks? Because that would be adorable.

but when the morning breaks
we will see the sun.
