My poor boy is going to be lonely this christmas as his current squeeze is due to give birth and he is leaving her side to let her get settled down for the main event, so if you have a lonely girl in need of company in our neck of the woods please get in touch. Warm welcome assured19th December 2008 at 2:20 pm #7245Anonymous
That sounds like the best offer I am going to get this year, does he accept two-legged friends?? I’m prepared to travel!

No problem he’d be grateful of any company at the present. He can still see Ruby every day thro the fence but she’s not available to cuddle up to or gruffle with when they’re inside, yesterday he decided to pull the water pipe off the wall that goes to his drinker coz he was bored!21st December 2008 at 1:43 pm #7247Anonymous
“Gruffle” is a great verb! I know they say we should give toys to pigs to play with, but don’t you get the feeling that if you offered a ball or a chain to a serious pig like this one, he would fix you with a beady eye and demand The Times crossword and14th January 2009 at 11:32 am #7267

Gosh they are beauties (almost wrote “butties”, whoops!), and so very spotty. I note, by the way, that you do sometimes get sunshine in your part of the world!
Chloe16th January 2009 at 9:56 am #7270
Yes we briefly saw the sunshine on a couple of crisp days last week so although temperatures were low it seemed a good chance to let the babies out for the first time, they had a great time with two big shovelfuls of turf and we have two climbers in the litter who negotiated my breeze blocks steps with no bother at all ( reinforced fencing all round!) They’re really growing on well and Ruby is being such a good mum, i’m so proud of her.[:)]20th January 2009 at 1:37 pm #7282Anonymous
oh I’m so tempted, neither of our boars are going to be anywhere near large enough to cover our girls in 4 weeks by the looks of it!! LOL and look at those spots! [8D]
the logistic’s of moving them to you from here though seems to put the skids on it as haven’t got a licence to transport over certain distance [:(]20th January 2009 at 4:05 pm #7283
If you have a type 1 licence it covers you for journeys upto 8hrs which should cover you for most trips, have looked at my licence which is a type 1 and there are no distances mentioned on it, also if two people travel with two pigs not for financial gain then you are also covered. I’m sure there must be a young boar closer to you than me however if you get stuck you know where we are[:)]
ps the piglets are also wall of death specialists round their stable the speed they get upto is amazing also one sat on Ruby’s head and bit her ear yesterday and when she flung it off, i swear it bounced picked itsef up and jumped back on her back again! Adventure pigs most certainly.

you’d be surprised, there’s no boars at all around here to hire or borrow for a while – is why ended up buying my own in the end, gave up deffo didn’t fancy doing AI I’ll admit and my girls deffo seem to prefer ‘au naturel’ too, hmm, will look into logistic’s, can you email me costs and the like for their B&B and your postcode so can do an AA travel and see and will have a word with hubby – I do love those piglets, look at those spots, if they come out with that many would be very happy!

Just a reminder to prospective breeders to plan ahead.
This last month or so i have taken a lot of phone calls from people wanting to use my boar immediately (one at 10pm last nite!![:(!]) This is not possible as he’s usually booked and busy doing what comes natural to him. You must remember to plan ahead, your lady pig has roughly a 6month turnround, approx 4mths pregnant and 2months rearing her litter then she can go back to the boar. I am already booking a boar for September for my next lot of Januaries as i want to use a particular boar. Watch your gilts/sows seasons and then try and plan accordingly especially if you need to hire or take your lady to B&B. Good boars are always in demand especially in regions where they are few and far between. So plan plan plan![:)]
