Sorry, but my daughter just registered and found one of my old posts.
This pig was a runt and we were giving him milk replacer to nurse him along. He seemed to be doing fine, but when we moved him into another pen, we took the milk replacer away because we thought he was doing fine. He ended up and bloated a couple of days later. We tried to give some laxitives, but he did not make it past the night.
My girl fell in love with this pig because he was a red belted pig with black spots, and he was the only pig like that so in essence he was so ugly he was cute. Since we had to baby him ... we all got a little too attached, especially my daughter. Last year was our first year breeding and it was a hard life lesson with this pig, but it was one that she got through but still hasn't forgot.
Thanks for the responses.
