I was alarmed treatment readers who had the temerity to buy Pot-bellied pigs breed incompetent breeders or people who think only of short-term profits. Geography of letters and phone calls, so varied and wide that fit to talk about uniting the nation around the issue of growing this truly, wonderful breed. Write and call from different regions: Chernihiv and Donetsk, Sumy and Luhansk, Lviv and Odessa, Kiev, as well as Russia, Belarus, Moldova. My plan was to write articles about proper feeding and keeping Pot-bellied pig, but I realized that it's time to sound the alarm about the prospects for the further development of this breed in our country. Is in full discredit of Pot-bellied pigs. People who buy a lot of money, a couple of cute piglets, then do not understand why their pigs to a year of life weigh forty to sixty pounds, and sows can not get pregnant before the age of ten to twelve months. And the thing is that many breeders because of their ignorance and lack of knowledge bases of breeding, hybridization, and engaged vnutrirodstvennym further spread of degraded specimens of the breed.

The head should be broad shape with a bend of the nasal bones (mopsovidnost). This is a very characteristic feature of the Pot-bellied pig breeds. The long, narrow head stretched, spindle-shaped torso, legs iksoobraznye talk about late-, constitutional weakness and degeneration. Appearance of a pig eloquently speak about his health. A healthy pig hair smooth, tight body, shot down by its tail stiffly, the behavior of an active, good appetite, shiny, bright eyes. Waving its tail from side to side indicates a good mood pig. Color, mostly black, but often there are other colors, even in the same litter that is not a deviation from the norm.
7. Find out at what age, and how to feed accustomed pig. Remember that the translation from one feeding to another should be smooth and gradual.
