Mum, I am sitting here just smiling. I am so glad that little girl was still alive for you to take her in. I was so worried with that whole mess it would be to late to make a difference for her and I was so upset. This truly made my day!

If I were closer I would have to give you a huge hug, but seeing I am here you will have to settle with a ((hug)) and a kiss from Peabody . . .

I can not wait to see what Candy looks like in a few weeks with your love and care!

Thanks, Weaver!

The shelter she was in used to be pretty good about not euthenizing animals, but - well, let's just leave it at that.

Candy's a real honey of a pig!

I just sat with her in my lap, feeding her a baby carrot, and she was giving all the happy pig signs.

I think she may have arthritis, because she shivers, and she's so thin she feels birdlike. But at least she's here where it's nice and warm, and the food is good and plentiful.

She's certainly not 'skittish' as told to me by the shelter (at least no more than any other pig). I hope that when she gains some weight she can be paired up with another sow - she could really do with a nice warm body to snuggle with!

Candy is adorable. I'm so glad you were able to rescue her. I know in no time that you will fatten her up.

I hate it when people take only one pig from a bonded pair.

With weather like this! It's always a good time to snuggle up with a hefty piggie =)

She looks like a Bee. The other "sister" was the same color right? I think she is beautiful, and you both are lucky!

She's gorgeous. I have a soft spot for black and orange abbies. Fingers crossed she's just a little undernourished.

Maybe I just have small pigs? All my female pigs are at the 2 pound mark. They don't feel or look skinny or ill, and they get plenty of hay, pellets, and veggies. I'm wondering why 1lb 15oz is considered small? My girls are all about 1 year old, if that makes a difference. Hmm.

Edit: ok I went back and re-read part of the middle of the thread. Ok so 2lbs isn't that bad. I got concerned for a minute.

At 1yr old 2lbs sounds pretty normal.

Older pigs usually weigh more, although some are just small.

The issue really isn't with weight per se but rather how rounded the animal feels.

I find it weird that all my pigs are the same weight, yet look different. Henry has a more "muscular" looking build, Sanford is all chunk, and Dudley is long and floppy.

I wish I lived near you too. She sure is a cutie!

Wait!
I just re-read the thread.
Mum, is shivering a sign of arthritis?
McMac has been shivering a little bit lately, but I thought it was the because of the unusual cold weather we have been having and turned up the thermostat 24/7 and piled on blankets and cozies on them.

McMac is a proud 6 year old who has maintained a good steady weight between 2lb 15oz to 3lb 1oz since September.

Shivering or vibrating can be a sign of pain or of fear. *Can* be -- don't freak.

Yes, my arthritic pigs will shiver if they don't get their metacam.
