Ginger a Mum

"After a time of wonder, etc..."

In fact we were beginning to wonder ... was Ginger really pregnant, was Angelica not up to the job, oh, a thousand doubts.

And then last week, a month or so later than we thought ...


Mike Wing takes up the story:

Ginger had eight little piglets on Sunday night, the coldest day of the year with snow and rain, but they are all healthy and still alive on day two. She didn't use the nice hay-lined shed we renovated for her; instead she made a nest of dead grass and sticks in the corner of the paddock. We have added more hay to her nest as the poor little piglets seem to be always shaking.

It’s warmed up now, and all eight little chaps doing well. Here Ginger seems more than content to be a mother – check the blissful smile.
