    Last night one of my new Tamworth gilts (thank you Wendall) farrowed. No problems in the delivery department and the pigs all look good. She did a great job of mothering and had 9, all alive so far.

    Still need to get some pics to share.

    Wendell was abit off on the date. He told me it was due in May. I walked out there at night to give her water and get her feed soaking when I noticed 2 of the little critters running by her. I rana nd got the wife and watched the other 3 being born.
