Baby pigs again

Had to send you some pictures of the latest 10 piglets out exploring the world.  Little images of their dad again.

They are only about a week old but already they are stealing mum’s food.  Such vigourous little things!  With many books saying you have to build special farrowing rails so the sows won’t squash their babies, and that they need special heating and such like – I continue to be relieved when every day there are still 10 little ones out there, despite no farrowing rails and some very cold frosty mornings.  I guess God gave the sows the instincts they need and made the piglets tough enough after all.  🙂
