New pigs on the block


Here at Stylist.co.uk we’ve seen a lot of cuteness in our time. Heck, we’ve even launched a cute pet contest to see what little nuggets of sweetness you guys could come up with. But never in our time have we seen such bundles of farmyard cuteness as these little micro pigs.

The miniature piggies have all been born and raised over the years at Pennywell Farm in Devon, and are pictured here in various guises – playing a piano, sitting in a trailer, eating cake… err, dressed as a cowboy.

Growing in popularity as pets, as the name suggests micro pigs are much smaller than standard pigs, growing to just 14 inches long and 12-16 inches tall when fully grown at 2 years old. Looking at these little fellows, it's decided - we, we, we want to take them all home!

What do you think? Would you like a micro pig as a pet? Tell us your thoughts on Twitter or in the comments section below. And just in case you're thinking of getting your own mini pig - here's some essential advice from the RSPCA
