Bet they like P.I.G. Tips! The pocket piglets who can fit inside a teacup

By John Hutchinson

Rock pig: This little fellow is the envy of his mates

Meet the petite piglets of Pennywell Farm.

This little piggy played the guitar, this little did someballet and this little piggy sprouted wings and flew.

They might be mini porkers but this collection of micro pigssure are mighty cute.

Time for a break: This pig looks to be getting a bit too tired as he rolls a strawberry
The squeally tiny youngsters have all been born and raisedover the years at Pennywell Farm in Buckfastleigh, Devon.

Fuzzy, friendly, and small enough to hold in the palm ofyour hand, these teacup pigs are also naturals at posing for the camera.

And they have now been immortalised in a new 2013 wallcalendar by photographer Richard Austin.

Richard has been a professional newspaper photpgrapher for more than a quarter-of-a-century and has won numerous awards for both sport and news.

Thirsty work: There's no tea left after these two get stuck in

Sweet: This pig seems to have found a new friend

However it is his love of wildlife that prompted him into shots such as these, and he went on to have his own TV show, 'Richard Austin's Animal Magic, which won Royal Television Society’s Regional family entertainment programme of the year in 2007.

However, so popular are the creative shots, the calendars have sold out from the photographer's own website.

But fear not, they are still available to buy on Amazon.com

True love: These two better be careful not to get trapped though!

Eager: This bunch are looking forward to opening December's presents
