Hi,i just recently rescued two micro pigs that were going to be culled  due to one having her right front leg 1inch shorter than the other and she is only small,i was told she is too small for meat YUCK, and her sister is fine but again only small. the one with the funny leg is very happy, feeding,running round with her sister and the dogs she is so loving she even manages to get in and out of the shed without help, we do have to rub cream in her skin as she gets sores but apart from that she is a very healthy happy pig. good luck hun hope she turns out ok for you.xx
