This blog does not have NEARLY enough adorable baby pig pictures!
This litter belongs to Paris the sow. Remember Paris? When we first brought her home just over a year ago, she looked like this:
Today, she looks like this:
Paris had eight pigs-- not too bad for her first! She has been a fantastic mom so far. We don't have a great creep set up right now, so Pree, our first sow to farrow, had some difficulties with her litter in the form of the other hogs picking on them. The lone survivor of that litter is being fostered by an absolutely wonderful couple in Weare, and is now thriving.
Paris is the Mama Boss Hog, though, so her litter is doing great. They are also super ridiculously cute -- and polka dotted! How cool is that?
Sadly, because of confusions with the registry, these beautiful piggies likely cannot be registered, although they are pure Idaho Pasture Pigs. The boys will all be bacon (and ham, and pork, etc.); the girls' fate is as yet undetermined. In the meantime, though, they are healthy, thriving, and darned cute. Hooray!
K writes this stuff, for some reason that has yet to become apparent.
