Dot is nearing farrowing. Her “pointy thing” points to the sky, her vulva is turning red, she has teats developing into breasts and her belly is huge! She’s not dragging on the ground-yet. I calculated her weight at between 400-430 lbs if the string method is correct. !!!! Of course, much of that is “pregnancy weight” so once she farrows she’ll probably be something more like 350. Any day now…still debating if i should separate her from the other pigs prior to farrowing, or let her do her thing.
Then there is Rosie. Back in June she looked like this.
Pretty skinny, flabby, batwing boobies. Now she looks like this:
Okay, from that angle she looks bigger. I will say shes filled out more but her stomach doesn’t seem wider, much lower or anything. I did measure her and she is bigger around than length, so thats hopeful. And last time I calculated her weight she was at 614. Now her weight it up to 740! So i guess with her we shall see.
All it is now is a waiting game.
