A new farm baby

Just got him yesterday from a friend up the road. Haven't named him yet. He is so dang cute! Not very tame though as he hasn't been handled much so I have my work cut out for me. He hates to be picked up....squeals like you are killing him...and he is loud to be such a little fella. We put him in with the chickens for the night. He rooted around under their hay....looked like a mole.

Any readers out there have a pot bellied pig? Got any tips for me?

Possible names:
!just kidding!

No seriously,

I've never had one but a neighbor of ours had one for YEARS. Its was really smart too, it would play fetch like a dog! It also had to be right behind you when ever you walked to the mailbox... I guess he needed the exercise. :) His name was Barnie. I forget how old he was when he died but he was freaky old.

You'll have a blast watching him grow and I'm sure the whole squealy thing will subside after a few weeks of it being you thats feeding him. Once he gets his head wrapped around the fact that you aren't going to hurt him or anything.

Of course there is the classic name of "Arnold". IIRC, that was what the pig's name was in Green Acres. lol

No matter what his name is, you should make a little cop uniform for him to wear and snap some photos. lol Just don't paint him up like Trixie, Troy King may try to take him away.
