Pig for Christmas?

Dear Santa, (sorry Mom)

I would like an American Guinea Hog for Christmas please! 🙂 Be sure not to confuse it with Guinea Pig because they are NOT the same creature. 🙂 A pregnant couple would be best actually.



P.S. I have been a very good girl this year. Just so you know. 😉

So I don’t really believe in Santa, but I have been a good girl. 😀 I do eventually want to get Guinea Hogs for our little mini-farm, but it’ll probably be a few years down the road. Guinea Hogs are considered and endangered breed and are therefore more expensive. Go figure! However, from what I’ve read they make great pigs for the small time farm operations who are raising meat for their own use. Piggies are actually great animals to have around because they scrounge around and eat just about anything! 🙂 Plus I’ve read this breed are known for killing snakes! Nice perk!

So we’ll see how the goat adventure goes. Perhaps we’ll buy a pig to raise and butcher sooner, but eventually I’d like to get a pair of Guinea Hogs to keep our freezer stocked with pork. 🙂
