Then there's a "pick-like thing" for prying out compacted poop in the hoof crevices.

Do goats have frogs like equine?
I must be losing it, as I don't understand the question.....? "frogs like equine"?

frogs = hollow areas on the bottoms of hooves, cleaned with "frog picks"

Yes, they do have them and they can become clogged with mud, droppings, etc., leading to foot/hoof rot if not kept somewhat cleaned.  Thanks for educating me!

Here's a brief film from A Plane Truth of a Scandinavian woman singing an ancient Viking song to call her cows.  The audio is haunting:

kunekune pigs

Wikipedia on kunekune pigs:
Kunekune are very easy to manage, as they have the ability to live on little more than grass. They are the only true grazing pig, and can be maintained with grass alone without supplementary feeding. One acre of grass can sustain as many as six kunekune

I've been eyeing kunekune for a while, especially since the local petting zoo has 2 of them and they've stayed small for a long time.
I've researched 'so-called' miniature pig breeds before and it seems that what actually happens is that piglets stay relatively small for a long time... until they don't. Having said that, there's much to be said for a breed that can stay small for a long time, especially if conditions are unfortunate, like say during a nuclear winter. So then if you have a breed of omnivore that "have the ability to live on little more than grass", you're safe. I'm thinking... Perhaps more research required.

P.S. So then i run across this youtube tidbit that states the kunekune get too big because the owners feed them too much; so that could be why the local petty zoo manages to keep them small!
P.P.S. Kunekune get fat very easily. They are experts at convincing you they are starving and must have more feed even if they were only fed 5 minutes beforehand. [from the British Kunekune Society].
I'm thinking that especially if one applies the Fordhall Farm philosophy of using as many grass strains as possible to encourage year-round growth and resilience; imagine a life-giving pasture of grasses allowing cows, sheep and pigs to survive until better times arrive.


I know, i know, i've said that scobies are a legitimate substitute for pigs on a small-scale farm, but still, a pig, especially one that can grow to be 400 pounds [!] is an interesting option.
[and so much cuddlier than a 'duck'].

Doesn't that black and white one look a bit cross-eyed?
