Poncho was rescued from someone who was going to take a pig into 4H and decided against it. They got Poncho and Lefty (the piglet that came with him) from a hog farm. When we picked up Poncho he was a runt and very small, but within a few weeks he was bigger than Lefty. Though Poncho has grown quickly he has had his share of issues due to having been born and "started" on a factory farm. From an abscess from sharing needles rather than changing them between piglets, they didn't remove everything when they castrated him and a bacterial infection.
