After getting snow, snow and some more snow, it is nice to have something that feels like spring.
The pastels of yesterday’s sunrise were a beauty to behold.
Farm babies feel like spring.
Being born is hard work. These babies found the warmth of the heat lamp and took a nap.
Mama Bernice did well. She had a litter of 13. Pig-farmer is happy. Two were still-born. 11 mouths to feed! The little girl above, with the white eye … was failing to thrive. I held her up to Mama for a long time while rubbing her little body. She nursed and got some of that all-so-important colostrum milk. Then she needed a nap. Now we shall see how she does. Sometimes they need a little help to thrive. Sometimes there are other reasons they don’t thrive/survive. We can’t see how they are formed internally. Time will tell.
