Wilbur has terrible manners and chews his food very noisily and most certainly with his mouth wide open! If you get past the fact that Mini Pigs are noisy, destructive, greedy, and that you are going to pick up after them just like a toddler, they are quite entertaining. Wilbur’s antics and personality will leave you chuckling for quite some time! What child wouldn’t be amused by a mini pig in a petting zoo at their birthday party?! After all, the Cowboy Critter staff cleans everything up after each petting zoo, so your only job is to laugh along!
Pigs are sensitive to both the heat and the cold because they don’t have much hair, and they aren’t capable of sweating. Right now, Wilbur lives in the basement were it is warm, but in the spring time, he will go back outside so that he has more room to run and play. When the days start getting hot in the summer, we will dig a pit and fill it with water so that, yes, Wilbur can wallow in the mud to cool down. Don’t worry, we wash the animals before we bring them to petting zoos!
