Plenty of teats to choose from

 A couple of days ago we had a new litter of Saddleback piglets. A rather small litter of four. Although, mum's previous litter was just six. Not a problem really. They are all healthy (two boys and two girls) with good markings. They should grow away well as there is plenty of milk from the 14 teats available.  We have another litter due in a few week's time.



  1. Adorable piglets! Have a lovely weekend.

  2. What a lovely litter! But why, with 14 teats to choose from, are they all competing for one or two? Maybe they like to snuggle up.

    1. They do like to snuggle up and when mum is up and about they stay in a heap together. Piglets also tend to go to the same teat at each feed.
