Piglets and Frogs in pink wellies
They are here!!
Look closely, this isn't some smutty image, but a photo of my piglets born this evening. They are just an hour or so old in this photo. My lovely Mummy Pig, Pepper, has had six gorgeous piglets who squeak and grunt delightfully. They had soft rubbery noses, pink padded feet and soft furry backs, I love them!
Being the farmers wife I am (that is completely useless)I felt rather squeamish watching the poor thing giving birth and then having to have so many nipples yanked about..ooh! But, I did look rather cool (bloody freezing) in my new fuchsia Hunters and Aubergine Toggi jacket (well I think I did!).
Spending a Saturday night in the barn with a large pig in labour was OK, but we did have to for-go a rather nice drinks party at Richard and Christina's (humph!).
Anyway, I'm off back up to the barn to check my post-natal hog and babies before bed.
