Anna Mae is a small Juliana. We are not a fan of calling them mini or micro, we prefer the term "Breed Standard". Breed Standard means we are breeding to the Standards set for this breed. See my About The Juliana Pig page for an explanation of the breed standard for this breed.
She is really cute and I fell in love with her little face, big eyes and really long eye lashes. There isn't an aggressive bone in her body. When you give her a treat she is very gentle when taking it from your hands. My grandchildren (2 and 4 years), love to give her treats.
I think if she would have been a house pet, in a home with a family that could have given her one on one time, she would have been the perfect house pet.
Anna Mae was shy at first and it took months to get her to let us touch her. She would come up to you for a treat but when you reached for her she would back away. They day she rolled over for a belly rub was a big deal for us. She will now allow us to touch her and we have even been able to put a harness on her. The reason our measurements for her are a range is because she is still afraid of the tape measure, but we are working in it. We are hoping it won't be to much longer before she well be able to walk around the yard on a leash.
Anna Mae is in with Russell at this time and we are hoping for Spring 2015 babies. This will be Anna Mae's 3rd litter. You can see photos and updates of her first 2 litters on facebook. She is Normansnotjustapig momma.
Gestation for a Sow is 3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days.
She is a stunning pig with great color and markings. Photos taken August 2015

Ruthie is a full Juliana. We have a pedigree on her going back 3 generation for both her parents. Her papers say she is brown, but as she has matured she is almost white.
She is very outgoing and the first of our 3 to coming running to greet you. Like Anna Mae there isn't an aggressive bone in her body. When you give her a treat she is very gentle when taking it from your hands. My grandchildren (2 and 4 years), love to give her treats as well.
From the first week we brought her home you could put a harness on her, and after a few weeks she would walk around the yard on a leash. She is very social and gets along great with all our other animals. She is kinda like a small child when she has decided something is hers, and does not want to share with Anna Mae This can include toys, the swimming pool and rocks. She is a collector, and likes to stack things. She will make a pile of rocks and hide them under the ramp going from the outside run to the inside run. I move her rocks so it give her something to do when she has to go gather them up again.
Ruthies first two litters produces smart healthy babies. See the photo page for images of her first litters. Ruthie is currently breed to JP and we are expect March 2015 babies.
Ruthie is almost white, when she blows her coat and the new one comes in she is so pretty. In this photo we were weaning her July litter, but you can see she is alreay getting her figure back. Photos taken August 2015
Out for a stroll in the yard in August 2013. Next to her is our 8 year old toy poodle, "Sammie". She weight's 5 lbs. So hopefully this gives a good size on Ruthie. Pigs are very heavy for the height they are.
