But they should be fine. They are getting pretty good at rooting up the soil. Not just rooting it up but actually finding stuff to eat while they “work.”
I am thinking about keeping the spotted girl, Peppercorn, for breeding. She came out of momma late, but still got a good teat. She’s assertive alright. But she also has good growth. One of the biggest pigs, infact. There is another one I call Big Pink who is very friendly…i just can’t tell her apart from the other big pink piglet! Their faces are becoming distinct so I think I should be able to figure her out one of the days.
So much fun to root around! And the “smack smack smack” of little pigs eating.
Nice and healthy piggies! I don’t know much about show pigs, but with their nice long bodies and well set bones I wouldn’t be surprised if I had some ribbon takers in the bunch. This will be my first time weaning and I’m not quite set up for it. I was hoping to wait another few weeks, but mom is looking pretty thin so I’m going to try and get something set up ASAP. That means I also have to find them homes. Oh, they grow up so fast! *sniff sniff*
