No, she just has a very wrinkly snout. It might be a little red from rooting around in the yard in the hot sun too.

I know this is about mini pigs but how are pigmy goats or dwarf goats? I've seen them called both. They seem like cool animals but I'm only on 2 acres and only about 1/4 of it is grass. Are they good pets?

No they would be outdoor animals. That is not even a question in my mind. I'm just wondering like do I need to fence them in are they smart enough to stick around? They gonna make a bigger mess than your average dog does?

I have one and I live on a 1 acre. She is really cool and funny.

She has a ton of personality but like everyone else said can be an asshole that tries to get into everything and climb on everything and shits everywhere constantly. They also like to eat any plants\flowers, not just grass.

She hangs out with my cattle dog and coonhound and has no problems.

I would not trust one without a fence. Mine is pretty loyal but they will wonder especially for food.

Overall she is a cool pet that everyone likes and gets a kick out of when they come over

That's awesome haha my house is always the place every one hangs out. I figured it would be cool to have a goat or 2 around plus they seem like they could be pretty fun pets.

Yea when I move I want to get her a friend. The dogs hang out with her but it would be nice for her to have someone out side with her always.

So you live in a cold climate? I'm in New England, we had chickens and a 100 watt light bulb kept them alive all winter. I figured a nice little house with a small outdoor pen would keep them warm and safe all night and when I'm not home. Than I could fence in the yard and when I'm home and can let them out. Is that to restrictive for them to be happy?

I have 2, Garth is a pygmy, Knack is a boer/nubian cross, To me Knack is what I thought a goat would be like, she likes to be around you but don't really want you messing with her much. Garth on the other hand is a dog in a goat suit, if I'm outside he's always right there, and tries to get in the middle of everything I do. I have 10 acres, they go up at night and free range during the day, you can't have any flowers/plants cause they will eat them, and you have to keep an eye out cause they will crawl on the top of your car, we've learned after you park the car to raise the hood, keeps him off the roof, luckly most of my cars are truck to tall for him to jump on. I had to put electric fencing up around my garden to keep them out, hes has alot of personality, her not so much. If I was to get another it would be a pygmy.









and here is another "off the wall" pet, His name was GB, he stayed around here quite awhile (I live on a large lake) till he found love, after he met is woman he dropped me like a hot potatoes, LOL

Goats make good pets you cant throw them out on the farm and expect them to be tame whwn you want them to be.And just like a dog you get a bad one once in awhile.Our microbpotbelly has had some growing pains she throws temper tantrums if you dont feed her or let her run free all the time.She has learned to open the fridge and the lazy susans.I told the wife things need to change or she has to go it was getting bad.Shes since done better shes not perfect but def better.
Do any of your pigs eat grass and weeds? Ours tears at it like cattle graizing shell eat it for hours till she almost cant walk.We have def put a stop to eating too much.I just never saw or heard of a pig graizing.

Reuben is almost 2 and is the same way. If it's raining or cold and he doesn't get yard time he is unbearable but he will graze for hours every day. He doesn't get in the front yard much since it's not fenced but if he does its like Christmas for him since it is virgin grass/weeds and he will literally run from us if we try to get him in the house or yard. We had to child proof a lot of stuff and mistakingly taught him to go up and down steps so we have three floors to chase him on now.

the wife is crazy... we now have a flat version of the pig that travels with her...

"helped" me figure out where the starter bolts went on the 02 f250 diesel as the wifey was on a trip...

by the way if you loose your bolts on a 02 7.3 starter motor they are 10mm X 1.5 pitch X 1.5" long...

My buddy wanted a pot belly pig in the worst way, but they can be expensive around here. After a few weeks of searching he found one "cheap" about 3 hours away, drove down, picked him up.

Got the thing home (to a 3rd floor apartment in the city ) and they had already gotten a bed for it and shit. Roots in it for a second, wraps its front legs around it and starts hate fucking it

Apparently it was a Christmas present, family knew shit about them, so 6 months had passed and it hadn't been fixed. Thing ran around the house fucking and nutting on EVERYTHING. Including tackling his 100lb girlfriend and hate fucking her too

Tried giving it away, but I believe he let it loose in the city and let animal control handle it.
