Think of the Skinny Pig this Winter

Today marks the launch of a Regional competition to design a Onesie for Rio the Whitehouse Farm skinny pig. “What’s a skinny pig?” we hear you cry. Imagine a guinea pig without any fur and you have yourself a skinny pig.

Whitehouse Farm in Morpeth have teamed up with the Internationally recognised The All-in-one-company to launch their biggest competition to date and are throwing down the gauntlet to everyone and anyone up for the challenge to come up with the best design possible to keep this little fella warm during the cold snap.

And what’s on offer are real money can’t buy prizes. The All-in-one-company are going to turn the winners design into a onesie for the skinny pig and the winner will get the opportunity to go along to Whitehouse Farm to see it being modelled. The winner will also be rewarded with a onesie of their own, using their unique website which allows customers to fully design their own Onesie.

Rachel Jane Lister of The All-in-one-company said “We love collaborating with local businesses, especially the fantastic Whitehouse Farm. We recently had a photo shoot at the farm and had to keep a real eye on who was a real animal and who was dressed up!”

Karen Lovatt of Whitehouse Farm said “It’s great that the All-in-one-company are going to make a skinny pig sized onesie – we’re sure it will make the other animals jealous! We just hope the Meerkat’s don’t see it – as they are already jealous of their well dressed relations on TV!”
