Jasper has only nibbled on the pieces I've given him. He's not very adventurous when it comes to eating.
I just run my hands thru and take out the seeds (they like the strings). and toast the seeds for the humans and eat them while we watch the pigs play. :)
(We just leave them in for a few hours and then throw them away - just make sure no one pees in the pumpkin ;) )
(I am at work, and can't look on photobucket for my pumpkin pictures :( I will try to post some in the morning).

Big time ditto to this.
Ours have always seemed to like the bigger ones better than the smaller (pie size) ones. Just get one or two (or more :-) on sale tomorrow, then cut a chunk out of them. Cut off the slimy part (prepare per Kermie's directions) and we cut off the rind, then put it in there and they'll chew on it.
It is also a good idea to get your pigs used to the taste of canned pumpkin incase you ever have to mix it with critical care when they are ill. Mine think canned pumpkin from a syringe is an excellent treat!
