This is my little girl, Ramona, in 2005~ and this is Ramona in 2007~
Ramona is now 360lb, a petite size compare to her farm-bred 800lb fellows.
Why can't pigs stop eating?
Because they are bred this way for hundred years. Farm pigs are raised to be slaughtered no more than 6 months; the goal is to have a breed that can eat a lot and gain their full weight before they head to our dinner table. Ramona has wild pig gene in her (her pointed ears and longer snout) which keep her smaller in size but still has the apatite for the sake of human.
She is naughty because after I gave her sweet strawberries and pears, she wouldn't touch her favorite lettuce any more. I guess I should feed children meals before snacks. She is the sweetest angel; I got to brush her with my hands and walked with her close by(which is great for territorial animals like pigs). She loves to soak in her pond and relaxes; when the right moment comes, poo-poo is a jolly move. Ramona looks like me, with black and thick hair.
She has a petite friend Wilbur, who is a pot-belly that follows you around and would eat kale over strawberries!
