    I use a t-shirt that smells of me and put it over then and cuddle them close then I sit down with them or I bring the hay tray and they sit in that :) I'm so proud of myself because they all love laptime and Hudson loves to be cuddled by me too lol he was really well behaved but doesn't like anyone else holding him except for me x

    Yesterday took a strange turn MoMo was getting one of her baths as her hair is all dirty and needed brushing. SHE BIT ME ! It didn't hurt just a little nibble. Turns out her hair was all matted and wrapped round her foot :( poor bairn x

    The way I tamed my pigs was by calling them with a simple two syllable noise and offering veggies with the noise. Now, after just a few weeks they come scampering up to the cage/run bars when I make the noise as they know there will be food! This led to me being able to stroke their faces when they came up. Also, make sure you always offer veggies during lap time and they will come to see it as a positive thing and will want to be picked up and learn not to fear you as much. There may always be some degree of fear as they are prey animals and running away/hiding could save their lives in the wild. It just takes some time. Good luck! x
