Good advice. I would however add that if this is a top hog or sibling rivalry you need to put yourself in that position, like a dog owner would be the pack leader, you need to be the top pig! Discipline, consistency and mimicking the lead dog behavior, without actually hurting the animal, works for dogs and has always worked for my full sized pigs! I can't imagine 800 & 1200 pound pigs are any different them potbelly or kunekunes in that respect. Well, except as house pets yours may be a little more used to being spoiled and having tantrums to get their way, or is that just mine? LOL
