Thank you! Her name is Rosie, purebred, showable himi teddy sow. The funny thing is that I also own her littermate sister, who I bought at a show about 4 months later from her second owner... Only to find out a month later when asking for the pedigree that they were littermates. (I did suspect it as soon as I brought Noel home.) Right now I am expecting both of them to have litters any time now.

She is a little diva, and wants everything her way- but when it comes to taking meds, she loves it. She once let me give her a double dose of ivermectin when I thought I had her sister- I need to remember to check the ear tags sometimes. (really, though, I usually can tell them apart, barely.)

Babie piggers!! I hope you don´t live close to me! She is a beauty. I should have known she was a purebred. She is absolutely beautiful.

Any more pictures? And when those babies come, I really want to see pictures!

LOL, not that young! but not very old either. I´m actually a teacher in the Sacramento area.

I found another picture that I thought that I had lost- Luckily I had uploaded it to a server. Here are three of the himi teddies, I think that Rosie is the one in the middle, and Noel is on the left. I know that one of my boars, Howard, is on the right. Howard is the father of both litters.

They are just SO beautiful! I was a teacher for 10 years before I had my youngest child. I taught 1st for 7 years and Kinder for 3 years. Now I am home and working harder than ever! It must be the 3 pigs! LOL!!

I just want to pick up your pigs and put them next to my cheek!

Actually they are not as soft as they look! Teddies go through several coats as their fur matures. The baby coats are soft and curly or fluffy, then they get courser as they are an intermediate and even more so as an adult. One of my favorite science lesson for younger kids is to take an american and a teddy to school, have the students look at the two animals, then predict which one is softer. I then sit them in a circle, and have them come up one at a time (no talking allowed, and their back is to the rest of the class so they can´t see expressions) and feel each one. Then we have a discussion about whether they were correct or not. It is fun. The kids always have the biggest smiles on their faces after they get to touch the animals. One Kindergarten class kept asking me why they had red eyes... Finally I figured out why, when they asked if the eyes glowed in the dark!
