The funniest I can think of is when you lift up my girl and bribe her with snacks while she complains, she keeps screaming while chewing and it sounds like she say “nom nom nom”. Sadly don’t have video and don’t live at home right now.
My pig is obese. He's a fixed 2yr old male and we live in New Hampshire where the winters are too cold for him. I need ideas on exercise he can do indoors. He was never interested in making beds with blankets, and spends a lot of the day sleeping. I need to get his pig butt up and moving before this becomes a really bad situation for my pig. Any help is greatly appreciated. 🙏
We got our pig probably about 6 or 7 years ago and the gal has lived a great life.
She didn't like to stay inside so she free roams and hangs out with our dogs. We have her a whole shed with hay and cooling/heating everything. I try my best to give her a well rounded diet but unfortunately she's the pickiest pig I've ever seen 😭
And wayyyy to smart for her own good. Every time I think I've tricked her into eating what I want her too, she's found a way around it for next time.
She's literally so spoiled. We always like to give her different fruits and veggies. (More veggies than fruits)
But I've been more and more reluctant to give her fruit?? Like at first I figured she didn't like the fruit but whenever I'd go to pick it up she'd fuss at me. So I was like, yes ma'am yk.
But she waits until the fruits rots before she eats it?? I've looked online and people everywhere say that this is abnormal. I don't want her getting sick so I've been picking it up before she can do it again or trying to trick her into eating fruit.
I've talked to multiple people about my diet for her and everyone has said it's a good diet. So I'm not sure where this is coming from??
She also has a whole yard to explore but rarely ever like walks anywhere 🥲 If I see her actually walking around I'm excited.
I've worried that maybe I'm not doing enough, or maybe something is wrong because everyone else's pigs seem so lively but mine wants to eat rotten fruit and lay in her shed all day.
Also I've tried to hide fruit in her pellets, doesn't work. Girl is psychotic.
I let her have some pickles the other day as a very rare treat. (She gets things like cucumbers etc but she was fussing at me for eating a pickle so I gave her one)
And she scrapped the inside of the pickle out and left the outside. Like a whole ass human. 🧍♂️
So basically can anyone tell me why my pig keeps wanting to eat rotten fruit? And any forms of enrichment I can put around my yard that she won't break in a day? She's very destructive.
I know she's living a happy life right now, girl wags her tail a lot. But I'd really like her to exercise more, she started this whole rotten fruit angle after our chickens died. And she used to roam around the yard with them :(
Unfortunately the neighbors dog killed our last chickens. Can pigs get depressed? Is she depressed?
I just don't understand. I've had her since she was super little bitty. So like it's not like she's ever had a bad diet. So why is she so insistent on eating rotten fruit??
Like the first time I saw her do it, I was like nope nope. We are not having vet bills today.
I'm 90% sure she probably got away with the behavior previously without me realizing. So she got checked out and she's fine. But I didn't realize then that she was actively planning to eat rotten fruit. And now that I'm engaging in this struggle of wits and am in fact losing I just gotta know why 😀
please head over to drop your signatures on a petition to end our military’s use of pigs during combat trauma training.

thank you 🐖
How will you appreciate your pigs? I don't own any myself, but there are some nearby, I will go and show my appreciation provided it's not raining.
Hello everyone so our pig got out of her pin the other day and we didn’t notice in time because the camera in it went dead. After five mins of finding out she was gone we found her but some dogs had attacked her. We took her to the vet and got her stitched up. We now have to flush the wounds twice a day and put cream on it which we’ve been doing. One of the wounds is healing really well but the other one was way worse and it’s hard to tell if it’s healing or getting worse. Photo is in the link. Do y’all think it’s healing or getting worse? We’ve never had a pig before or had one who has gotten hurt like this so we aren’t sure how their wounds heal. photo link
