Piglet Trying to Mount Me
I have a 2 1/2 month old "mini" pig that I just got this week. I'm not new to farm animals, just new to having a potbelly pig as a pet. I know he's not going to stay small, so that's not my question or concern.
My concern is... he just started trying to mount me today. I was sitting down and he got all worked up and started trying to climb onto me and mount me. He was getting a little nippy in the process. I stood up and he continued trying to climb up my leg.
This is NOT okay, especially since he's going to get bigger.
He isn't neutered, but I plan to have this done ASAP. Would that be the cause of the problem? Or is it a dominance thing? I tried firmly telling him "NO" and pushing him off/away, but he came running back, almost more determined.
Any help is appreciated. (:
