Expect the Unexpected
Many changes have happened here since I posted last. As you know, we moved. We moved in with my mother in law to be with her during her final weeks. She passed away on April 13th. She will be greatly missed, but we know that she is in a better place, free from the pain that she was in. We are now working on finishing our transition over to our new place and trying to get more settled.
A couple weeks ago Kevin came up from the barn and said "I have interesting news...." This interesting news was that one of our gilts was pregnant with our boar that we thought was sterile. We were certainly not expecting to have a litter of pigs just yet. She farrowed tonight, and has 6 beautiful little piglets. Penny has graduated from a gilt to a sow and seems to be doing great with her babies. Her farrowing went very smoothly, and I am extremely thankful. Now I am hoping that we don't lose any during the night. So far, so good.
