Two weeks ago our Large Black sow April had her first litter. The 13 little bundles were delivered by our clever girl who had made a nest in the woods behind Lisa's riding arena (much to the dismay of our mare Genevieve).
Unfortunately we lost three in the first 24 hours but we now have ten healthy little ones running around in the nursery paddock and enjoying the life of a true free range pig. Sleeping in the soft long grass during the heat of the day and chasing each other in a game of tag in the cooler hours of morning and night. It is now two weeks later and they are all growing quickly. They have just started eating solid food which they steal from Mum when she is not looking!
