Piglets (and update)

As I was doing my final checks before leaving for Manchester, guess what I found......Maud had five piglets, so I stayed to help. Now she has nine, eight are really healthy little things, one I'm not as sure about although it appears to be improving. One was born dead and despite everything I did would not be revived.

This was the way I left them, with Mum snoring for England and the babies all suckling away.

Little piggy update : Eight piggies alive and well and with their Mum, little runt piggy alive and well and living in the house with Lovely Hubby, currently on it's way to the shops in a box on the front seat of the truck to pick up some baby milk for it's two hourly feeds. (What a way to spend your birthday, poor Alan!) I'll be back tomorrow to help out but until then he's a single parent family!!
