I was wondering if anyone had ideas, or better yet, pictures? I´m not exactly Mr. Handywoman but I may be able to trick my boyfriend into building something.
All Hail the Pig!
Oh, and I´d have little windows to make sure there was adequate ventilation. I think they like peering out.
as for a pen, i used to use the leftover grids from making my cube/coroplast cage and I connected them with cable ties. It folded up semi-compact and it was pretty nice and convenient. I ended up giving those grids away to my sister when I got her a pig named Elmer.
This is a pic of what I do during floor time. They usually dont leave the play area, they just go in and out and through everything several times. When they seem to tire of it, or start laying down or venturing away, I just rearrange the set up and they start popcornning and explore it all over again.
pics of their old floor time pen:
I hide bits of food. The boys get so excited when they are put in their floor-time pen and scamper around searching for treats. I also use cube grids, cardboard boxes, bricks, and pvc.
I also have both their old small pet-store cages as part of the barrier. They use these as the litter box about 50% of the time.

how to make one
Unfortunately I can´t find a large pic of the "race track". There was some wooden pegs the pigs could weave between as I remember it.
Very funky environment.

Thanks, guys... I´ll check out those pages. I may have to kick my boyfriend out of the house in order to have room... Well, you can´t make omelet without breaking some eggs, right?
