As growing inches a day. Or at least it seems that way. Mollys latest mob of piglets. A small mob but a growing mob.
I need to look back into the journal that is my blog and see how old these fat little girls are now. But I see no reason to wean them yet. Molly is still doing very well and the babies are growing fast and winter is cruising around the corner at speed. The fatter the better with cold coming and only three of them.
I have to take pictures quickly because most of the time I am in the pen with them they are chewing on me. Piglets love zips, and boots they are very inquisitive and playful.
This is my normal view of them.
Even with only three one is much smaller than the rest. She gets to sleep in the middle. But they are all eating and drinking well. Doing what they are meant to do.
They are a happy mob. This little litter.
I hope you have a lovely day.
WEATHER: Chance of rain coming. Dammit. I was hoping they would get this cornfield harvested this week. It is way dry and shabby now. But rain means we are still above freezing and that is good for Aunty Del and her phantom calf.
