New Piglets!

24 hours after having her first litter this sow was ready for a meal. Her ten piglets slept together under the heat lamp while she munched the dandelions and other greens I added to her dish. On a 40 degree day it is nice to have the extra warmth and a safe place to get away from a mama's heavy bulk and dangerous feet. Before long her meal was done and her pigs emerged to resume their own as she called out to let them know she was ready to nurse.
