Meet Tetley, the little piggy the size of a cup of tea

15th October 2007
Daily Mail

With his paws spread wide and taking a step up on to a cup of tea, this little piggy tries desperately hard to make himself big and strong.

But there's no getting away from the fact that he is still no bigger than a tea cup.

Tetley the miniature pig is the smallest of a litter of eight piglets born to his mum, Poppy Two Socks.

After several false pregnancies the miniature pig gave birth to her brood at Pennywell Farm in Buckfastleigh, Devon.

And Tetley, clearly keen on a cuppa himself, has grown no taller than three inches high and five inches long.

Pennywell miniature pigs are bred from a range of old English strains and grow no bigger than the size of a cocker spaniel.

Most of the litter will be sold as pets with the others kept at the farm for future breeding.

Pennywell owner Chris Murray said "Tetley is the star of the farmyard."


All the attention could be proving too much for Tetley the piglet, who just wants a sleep
