    Well I guess I can quit sweating her farrowing, and whether the boar is OK or not... She had 8 healthy pigs. I felt sure she'd have more as her dam had 13 in her litter and 12 before that.

    Love piggies, we have 10. Grandsons have loved on them so much, piggies are loving it & are so tame, they will eat out of your hand. Everyone needs grandkids to love on the piggies.

    We were worried about her and the boar.... But looks like it was for naught...
    She doesn't mind petting the pigs... But would turn quick when one squeels... We'll give it time

    Better add, the piggies have access to a small pen, where food & water is available to them, but the momma sow cannot get into, the kids know they can NOT get in the same pen as the sow, only the piggie pen. They have been taught that sows with piggies can be dangerous for everyone.

    Piglets are by far my favorite farm animals
