Put the herd away after their floortime into a freshly cleaned cage and I thought it was a nice opportunity to take some photos :wub:

I’m really struggling trimming Mary’s nails. Their pitch black so I’m scared I’m going to cut the quick! and there naturally twisty and she’s very squirmy at being held! :hmm:

Lovely photos! Why not take Mary to the vet and they can clip her nails? We accidentally caught Smokey’s quick and he was rather displeased!

I always take my herd to the vet where the nurse trims their nails. It’s much less stressful.
You have such a lovely herd

Awwww cuties! A vet can show you have to trim black nails and some vets do regular nail trims if you are concerned- worth an ask

The guides here have some good videos and advice on how to hold a squirmy pig when clipping nails. :) If it helps, I got my piggos comfortable with nail clipping by stroking their paws during cuddle time and in their cage.
