||Twenty months old|
||Johnsburg, Illinois, USA|
is Gilbert, in the Bumblepig photo he is sixteen months old. Now he is
twenty months old. Gilbert is Kune Kune mixed with a mini pig. He is a
fully indoor pig and is training to be a therapy pig.
Gilbert does therapy training with kids, he will work with special needs
kids and do educational meet and greets. His personality is great! He
loves being close to people and cuddling, he is not afraid to be around
large groups of people, we have taken him to do some training at our local
Walmart, so he can get used to the sounds and people. Gilbert sits and
will lay down he likes when kids read to him. He has two toys that are his
favorite. One is what I call the moon ball there is only one opening to
put treats in and he rolls it all over to get the treats out. The second
is two spiny balls a large one and a small one we put into the large one
and then we shove treats in the little, Gilbert has to figure out how to
get the treats out. Gilbert is very affectionate when he wants to be but
like a toddler likes a bit a little independent as well. He makes a great
pet, but pigs are not for everyone they need a lot love and attention and
you can't let them get bored. Gilbert's facebook page is Gilbert Big Pig
Nelson, and he invites you to check it out!
