So now that tax time is coming to an end, and of course I am still not finished with mine, I was wondering something. Since pigs are still considered livestock in most places, does that mean that I can claim their feed, enclosures, blankets, etc… as farm expenses? My guess is that knowing our government they will say no because my pigs are pets. so why is it that if things work to our benefit, it isn’t ok but if it works to theirs than it is?

My problem is, we have to fight tooth and nail in order to convince our local government to allow pigs in residential areas because they are “Still considered Swine” and then we have to fight again if we want to claim them as swine on our taxes. It’s kinda funny to me how people ( us included) try to bend every rule that we can when it benefits us.

I guess since I am not a fan of audits, I should stay clear of this one.

  • Confirmed booking prior to departure
  • Weather conditions constantly monitored at all points

The Need For Confinement

Previously, I mentioned setting up an area to confine your pig. While this may sound cruel, it is in fact essential to the long term well being of your pig and your sanity. For the first few weeks, confinement will make your pig more secure and less frightened. It will also help in the beginning stages of training. This is the area you will interact with your pig until he/she learns to come to you and is comfortable with you touching them.

When you need your pets out from underfoot, there’s nothing better than knowing they’re content. This sturdy, plastic pen is high enough to prevent rambunctious animals from climbing out and strong enough to stay put. Plenty of air and light in this square pen eliminate the feeling of  isolation some other pens have. Perfect for play or training, indoors or out. Features: Perfect for small and medium sized pets Sturdy, commercial grade plastic.

Easy to assemble and disassemble. This is what we use for our babies
