Meet Your Blogger

Hi! My name is Tex and I am the brains behind this operation. Here’s a little about me:

I’m 39, 40 41 and I’ve loved pigs ever since I was a little critter. I’ve owned a pig, showed a pig, and have quite a collection of pig memorabilia and I don’t think I’m alone in this! So I decided to start this Pig Lover’s Blog as an outlet for my pig love, and to create a place for other pig lovers around the world (like you) to get their swine on.

There’s a surprisingly large volume of pig related news, information, products and pics, videos and fun stories out there, so I don’t think there will be a problem coming up with new and entertaining content.

Side note: If you are a lover of pork this is not the blog for you. This blog is dedicated to the vibrant LIFE of pigs. I’m sure there are plenty of blogs elsewhere for all you bacon lovers. Just not here. Well, with one exception: At some point I may address pig farming, specifically those working to ensure that ethical farming practices are utilized. While I do not eat pork myself, I understand that this ‘other white meat’ is quite popular. Finding humane farming solutions and fighting animal abuse are issues I believe strongly in.

So thanks for visiting, feel free to email me if you want to suggest a pig related blog topic, and of course comment often. The more the merrier.

Thanks for visiting, and welcome!

  1. What a terrific blog. It’s the perfect culmination of years of pig worship. I know there are many others out there who will agree. As one of those people who have given you a multitude of pig gifts over the years. I hear ya, but I’ll have to ignore ya… you’ve trained us well. Besides it’s fun shopping for pigs. Oink and XO, R.

  2. Hello, I’m happy to meet someone else who loves pigs. I take care of two landrace pigs, Castor and Polly. I never realized how interesting pigs are. It amazes me that people want to eat them. So very sad. Thanks for doing what you do!!

    • Yay! Glad you like my blog. Happy to have a fellow four legged animal lover on board. Hope you enjoy the reading. Hugs to Castor and Polly!

  3. Enjoyed reading your blog, and checked out your pig gift ideas. I’m looking for easy craft ideas to go along with my book “When Pigs Can Fly!

    • Carol,
      Hopefully you received my email a while back with some ideas for you. If not lemme know and I’ll post them here.

  5. Hi Tex, great blog! I love pigs and we recently brought one into our home. It took a little while for him to adjust but I am in love with him. He truly makes me appreciate what an incredible animal this is. If you’d like to see some pics and videos of our little guy, here is the link: http://www.myminipetpig.com. Glad I found your blog!
