Vietnamese Pot bellied pig care

Postby toffeeboy » Sun Apr 27, 2008 11:10 am

We have inherited a pot bellied pig at our house. She is 4 years old and we want to look after her, but we have noticed she seems to have really long toe nails. She has trouble walking. We think her area might be too small, so if anyone wants a grown up pot bellied pig, she would free to a good home. We are near Montoro, cordoba. If not if anyone has any advice on how to cut a pigs toe nails I would be grateful as she wont let us near her I guess she would have to be sedated.

I'm led to believe that these particular pigs are adept truffle hunters, if you know the general locations of the truffles of course!

Footnote: Truffles currently sell for about 1000 euros per kilo :roll:
Ah! the full english!!
