When we were considering getting a mini pig, I assumed a pig would be slow moving and hate running. I was actually a little relieved that I wouldn’t have to worry about him getting loose or running away like I do with our dogs.
I couldn’t have been more wrong! Mini pig Oscar loves to run around outside, and he’s so much faster than I thought a pig would be. We take a little family “walk” each morning so that Oscar can get some exercise, but he prefers to eat grass, then sprint to catch up with the family, then eat more grass, then sprint to catch up again. He hates to get too far away from the family which is comforting for me, but I am constantly amazed at how fast he can move.
Here is a video of Oscar running to catch up with us on our morning walks.
