As I mentioned in my PM, it is a very rare pig that will not run away when you try to pick them up. It's highly ingrained -- they don't like it. Once they make it into your lap, they generally do better, but I've never personally met a pig that liked the picking up part. A lot of people have baskets or boxes that they let their pigs walk into for a treat and then use that to pick them up.
We are as gods to the beasts of the fields. We order the time o' their birth and the time o' their death. Between times, we ha' a duty. - Terry Pratchett.
"Men have forgotten this truth", said the fox, "But you must not forget it. You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed. - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
