We went from this a few weeks ago:
To this: even bigger, but still no piglets!
So she’s dropped and filling with milk but….no nesting or anything. Oh, but they are in there. I can SEE them moving around inside her. And she can feel it. Right now I think thats why shes so uncomfortable: a multitude of piglets bouncing around inside of her.
Rosie showed a few signs, was huffing and puffing one morning, taking tiny pees and tiny poops no desire for breakfast and…..nothing. I came home and she was all perky and waiting for dinner. A few days later she got busy with the little boar. *sigh* so…she’s probably gonna turn into sausage or something….The ex stipulated she can’t be slaughtered so I gotta figure out what to do with her. Stupid being honorable/honest. I suspect she has ovarian cysts because she was bred later than normal (2 years rather than 6 months) and spent much of her live overweight. But…then again she did get beat up by the ram who is probably gonna turn into sausage.
So we are still waiting for the piglets. I broke down and built a little piglet space thats warm and draft free that can sit in the hoop house if she farrows on a cold night. Momma thought it was a back scratchier for her. It was nice and pretty (used left over painted props from the music video) but now its got a big muddy body print of Dot on it.
With all Dots unhappy feelings she tried to curl up in my lap…but 400 lbs of pork in my lap is a bit much.
For her sake (and the sake of my lap) I do hope this is over soon!
