Sometimes I don't hear from people and I think, "Is anyone even reading my blog? Am I wasting my time? Should I give it up?" Then something happens like it did today. Running into the grocery store to pick up a couple of gallons of milk (I still wonder if I should get a cow or milking goats!) I ran into a dear gentleman and he asked me about my two piglets and how they're doing. And I realize that, yes, there are people out there reading this! It sure does make me feel good!
The piglets grow quickly! These two little boys are at least a third bigger than they were when they were born. They are absolutely adorable!
|This nighttime picture of them checking out mom makes their eyes glow.|
|This strangely colored picture is under the heat lamps. After the piglets run around for awhile and get chilled they snuggle down in the hay under the lights.|
I'm not pleased with the quality of these pictures. I have to pull out my real camera - not my phone camera - and take some decent photos!
I'm happy with the very short noses these boys seem to have. It seems, that the pigs with a shorter nose tend to not root as much as ones with a longer nose.
Fortunately, it looks like our temperatures are going to go up for a little while. Temperatures in the 20s and 30s feel almost balmy!
