  • tnarmybrat05: "I got my in the mail book today, wow I'd read everyone's posts about how helpful it is and how much information is included, but I was still surprised at how thorough and in-depth it is, I'm so glad I bought it! My pigs won't be here for a couple more weeks and I'm trying to learn as much as I can between now and then, and the health care guide is a huge help, thanks Lynx!"

  • momof911kids: "Lynx, I love this book! I ordered it last week from KM along with my hay and it's great. My husband also loved the book and thought it was reasonably priced for the amount of information in it. I also like it because when I go on vacation and leave my mom to pig sit I won't have to worry about her not having critical info should an emergency happen with the pigs. Thanks for such a great book!"
