This Little Piggy

Went wee wee. LOL Charlotte the sow had a litter of 11 piglets. Sadly 2 were lost. One we couldn't reach in time to clear the airways and it died. The other one momma stepped on it and it died. The rest are fat and sassy. The runt I named Piglet and she is adorable. There is another one I named Binky because she finds a place to nurse away from the others and just sits there after nursing with the teat in her mouth sleeping. She has to have a teat in her mouth all the time, kinda like a pacifier. So Hidden Haven has 9 baby Yorkshire piglets running around till they are weaned and ready to sell. I sure miss my camera!

Hi Peggy. Glad you left a message at Mountain Blessings as I was wondering where you were. Will you be able to visit with Sammi and Diva? Praying that this trip is not too taxing for you both physically and emotionally.

Hello Peggy
Reading this post and the one before - it sounds like a girl has to do what a girl has to do.
Enjoy the Spring and the signs of new life - 'cose that's what it is - a new life for all of you
Take care

Congratulations ! I look forward to see them. I'm planning on getting a pig or two soon, Red Wattles maybe.

I love all the season for many reasons but mainly because each one makes me appraciate the next all the more :)
