    People learn to love their pets. Sense that time a lot of research in the area of feed and food for Pot Bellies and has advanced. A mature pig will be approximately 13-20 inches tall, will an average weight being 130-150 pounds, but can range in size from 90 – 175. Overeating/overfeeding can lead to obesity in your pig, resulting in a weight well over 200 pounds. When Ko-Jac was given to us as a small 4 pound piglet, we started researching ourselves and talking to other pig owners, our vet, and the petting zoo owner where Ko-Jac came from.

    Thanks for sharing Sally's story. Glad she had a good life. We have had to make some adjustments in our home and vehicles as well for Ko-Jac but all have been worth it.
    Happy New Years

    I am well educated on the reality of pot belly pigs, but thanks. Call me out? REALLY? Wow someone said to me in humor "My kids are bringing two hams over for dinner, hope they are not close relatives of Ko-Jac's". In a light and humors way my response was "nope they hams are about as closely related to Ko-Jac as you or I are to Chimps".

    You are right about one thing in all of this I have found there are a selected few people that have posted on this thread I would NEVER want anything to do with in real life and have had way more then enough of in internet posts.

    I have been accused of being thin skinned, no humor, and now what being uneducated about my own pet?

    YET: on the better note of things look who is spending time and energy looking up pot belly pigs and look who is taking time and energy to read it.

    Like the youth of today say "WORD!"

    REALLY, awesome. Now maybe we can actually get back to and get more insight in to the original question for the up and coming problem. A way to get Ko-Jac from the beach to the boat. Feasible with in budget, size and usability and safety!

    After 376 posts on the subject you're still hoping to get a decent answer? Wow, you are wonderfully optimistic.

    I had been ignoring this thread until now, when I got bored watching Canada beat up on the Russians. I read the first 30 or 40 posts and then jumped to the end to see where things had progressed to. Good for you for hanging in there.

    For a boat the size of your 260, there likely aren't any options that will meet your scope of being within budget, size, and safety... let's face it - a 90 pound pig that doesn't swim probably isn't a very good candidate to be moving from beach to boat...
     
  7. I had a pet rock once. :grin:

    But all the other people threw his brothers & sisters & aunts & uncles & cousins at me. :smt089

    So I had to get rid of him. :smt043 .:smt043 . :smt043 .:smt043

    When Cpt Sundancer has the PIG HOIST all figured out and working, I will make sure to post plenty of pictures and video's. Then a lot of you will be eating words, which I myself will find amusing. I do totally agree on one thing said recently, and I have grown tired of this thread. I have stated my opinions, attempted to make my point WAY to many times. Happy 2011 to all and a great boating season.

    We have all poke fun at KoJac, but there is also some good advice here Lacook. There is a solution here for you. I hope you find it.

    The folks here will go out of their way to help you with a boat problem, so your sarcaism about folks here is really uncalled for. There has been situations where someone was on their way, had a problem and CSR members have dropped what they were doing to find a solution. Thus salvaging the weekend for a fellow member.

    Please post pics as some of us here at CSR have a hard time believing without pictures!:grin: Ask Wayne!!! A rock???LOL

    Good luck!
     
  16. Yep if you don't have pics to backup what you're saying !!.

    The guys on here will do a Rodney King act on your a$$. :grin: .


    Ok you go first. :smt001
