    LOL. We started him off in the dog kennel that we weren't using for the dogs and then added about 1000 sq foot of electric fence. We had to go w/ a horse size electric box rather than what they recommend for pigs because he plowed right through that one. He respects the wire and gives us no issues. We cut a hole in the back of the dog kennel so that he can go in and out of that, it's where his little dog house is. I wanted him to have a safe zone and that's what that is for him.... They really aren't much trouble if you do decide to get one. Very low maintenance. If you want I'll take a picture of his pen so you can see how clean it is. He poops in only one corner in a neat pile and I rarely have to clean it.

    If you don't mind and get the time, please take a picture! How big is he? After mentioning a pen I got to thinking about my working pens that have a shed and hog panels, maybe I could reinforce that with a hot wire....hmmmm

    Pigs are fun creatures. We have two. We had three but our slowest female got too close to a new momma broodmare and got stomped. She didn't think she had anything to worry about since the she had been in the fields so much an everyone as fine with her. Alas the broodmare was overly defensive.

    ANYWAY, our male is pretty much wild. You can't handle him but he is a riot. He has claimed every one of our broodmares and gives time to be with each one every day. If we have horses in different fields, he makes the rounds. If we bring a girl in, he makes sure to come find her and eat with her. He is fit and fast and smart and can get away when a horse gets irritated. He also sings when he is walking the fields. He just squeals a little tune a he goes. The great Dane loves to torment him. She jumps at him and he just screams and tries to run. She won't hurt him, she just jumps around him and barks. He is our teaser pig. He hovers around a mare in heat like a fly over a cupcake. Lol.

    The female pig is more handle able if you have treats. She will run to you for treats. She loves to root in the rain and is a terror when it comes to finding the dog food. She's a sweet girl.

    Sorry to hear about your female :(

    They do sound like a lot of fun! I think when she has her piglets I will go look and see how I feel about it.

    Thanks you guys for the info!

    If you rub his belly he will lay down like a dog and let you pet all over him. Very sweet. He is neutered.
    Is that your son in the pic? He is a cute kiddo!!!
    Really reminds me of my brother when we were little!
