About Mabel and George
This highly photogenic brother and sister duo are looking for a home to live out their twilight years. A pair of pedigree kunes, they are very friendly and chatty. They love to graze but have never really taken to wallowing!
As the slightly larger and bossier of the two, Mabel is most definitely in charge. Her brother George is still always her best pal and they snuggle up together every night.
They do require separate feeding stations as cheeky Mabel eats a lot faster than her brother and isn’t above swiping some of his veggies once hers are all gone. She can also be a little feisty with strangers in her pen, so someone confident with reading piggy body language would definitely be an advantage. She is perfectly happy to have you in her space once she gets to know you.
Generally they are very healthy for their age, the only issues relate to Mabel’s hooves and George’s tusks, both of which are slightly overgrown. In order to trim them down they require sedation, which isn’t ideal to regularly administer to any pigs but especially older ones. Neither seem to be too bothered by these but they will need to be closely monitored for any signs of discomfort.
They will also need daily access to a decent-sized hard-standing area. This will help to keep their trotters trim and also be better for their aging joints as they may become arthritic.
We’d love to find a new home close to their current location, but if you can offer them the perfect home further away we would still love to hear from you!
Their old home would love updates on them if their new home is willing.
