    heres momma in her log cabin with her 7 little piggles, 4 boys 3 girls,
    all are doing well, and cute, i had hoped for more color, but that yorkshire white came through,instead of the belted blacks, we will be keeping 2 of the girls, they will be bred to the tamworth boar we are getting, so should see more color about this time next year :D

    Congrats on the wee little ones. Ours are mixed also for the meat mainly.

    i mix for two reasons, one is the meat the other is the color, since we pasture, darker colors do better, youll notice in the pic mommy is red, yesterday before labor she was laying in the warm sunshine,
    whihc is fine with her, but i dont like seeing them get burnt , stress means less feed to meat ratio.
