Polly's Piggly Wigglies
Polly farrowed! And we missed it. Yesterday, she was out in the pasture all morning, but when I went to check on her after lunch, she was lying down in the pig shed. I called Dan, started running, and discovered six little piglets.
We did arrive in time to witness her eat the placenta.
She seems to be a very good mom.
And Waldo? He was only mildly interested.
Even so, we've moved him in with the bucks for the time being. When the piggies are a little bigger we'll see about reuniting the family.
