I got him on Saturday from the rescue where I got Bradley and Barney. He is around 6-7 months old and aggressive to other pigs so he has to be on his own. He's the strangest little creature to look at, long nose and very slender and long - he reminds me of a rat bless him.

I've decided to rename him Rodney, he was originally called Bully Boy. Rodney is short and smooth haired, mostly white with 2 black socks on his back feet, a black face with a badger stripe and some lemon markings scattered about. Lol, his face always looks shocked, for all you Coronation Street watchers, he's definately got Tony Gordon eyes :))

He's shy at the moment so I haven't got a pigture, but here's his add from when he was up for rehoming:

The only thing I'm concerned about is that since I've gotten him I don't think he's drank a thing, he's got a bottle like the one he had at the rescue so it can't be that he doesn't know how to drink from a bottle. At the moment I'm just giving him carrots and things to get some liquid down him.

He is lovely. I wouldn't worry about him not drinking, he will certainly be able to find the bottle when he is ready. Probably found it already while mooching around when you're not looking. Keep up with the watery veggies, and he will get fluids from these. I would let him settle in for a good while, let him feel secure again, then maybe try him with a pal, possibly a baby who he doesn't feel threatened by and obliged to bully. He is quite young to start a life on his own. It may not work, but worth a try in the future. I'm sure he will be happy being loved to bits for you for a while though x
