VIDEO: Mini Pig in a Poke

VIDEO: Mini Pig in a Poke - Watch below

Mini pet pig proving she will go to any length in her quest for treats!

The idiom 'Pig in a Poke' refers to a confidence trick originating in the Middle Ages when many meats were scarce but cats and dogs were plentiful!

It basically means it's a good idea to check what was in the 'poke' or sack before parting with your money.

This remains sound advice today and is fittingly relevant to those researching mini pig ownership.

Micro and Tea Cup pigs are underfed to keep them small. Rubbish!

The question below, posted on 26 August 2014, to Petpiggies Facebook page, is not uncommon.

Our answer, in response, was also posted to Facebook and can be read below.

''I have to ask a question. I hear a lot of people say that teacup or micro pigs are under fed that's why they are so small. Is that true?''

Hi,

Can I walk my micro pig?

Can I take my micro pig for a walk?

Petpiggies are often asked ‘ Can I take my micro pig for a walk?’

The simply answer is yes but if you live in the UK you must apply to your local Animal Health office for a pig walking license unless you are walking on your own land.

Here’s some further information regarding pig walking we hope you’ll find useful:
