14 Baby Berkshires

Today has dawned like a beautiful spring day.  Much, much better than the beginning of the week.  Pig-farmer left for Missouri last night, after checking the pigs.  Once, twice, three times, or more.  I hesitatingly walked to the barn this morning.  I opened the door to the sound of contented grunts from mama Bernice.  I peeked into their pen.  DSC_073714 … alive, cuddled under the heat lamp for warmth.

Some are teeny-tiny.

Cute as a button, too.


Mama got up and ate her food.  That’s good news, too.

I wish someone praised me for eating….

    Well, that bodes well for the very little ones, they must be getting something to drink. There must be massive competition! c

    Those baby pigs are absolutely adorable!! Surely it’s a good sign everyone made it through the night. You should open a petting zoo, I would love to stop and love on Happy, the goats and admire those piglets!!
