While I was browsing our website today, I realized that we forgot to post about the new piglets. I mentioned this”problem”to Sarah, and she drafted me to write a piglet post. Therefore, bear with me as I compose my first blog post. 🙂
Piglets? Yeah! Lots of them…22 to be exact!
Shanny, short for Shenandoah, had her piglets first. They’re a week old today.
Our other sow, Tanya, had her 11 piglets two days ago. She’s a very good mother!
For the first couple of days we like to give them a heat lamp in their “Piglet Box”. After eating they head to the box to sleep.
We still have five more pregnant pigs on the farm, so the fun is just beginning.
