Shock News - Man Gets Pig Pregnant!!

My view this weekend has seemed to mainly be the one above.
As for the title of this post........all my fingers and toes are crossed for this to be the news. For the first time ever we used AI (Artificial Insemination) to try to get Betty in pig (pregnant). If this has worked, in three months, three weeks and three days she should be the proud mother of at least eight babies!!
The daddy's name is Orlando (Gracebank Orlando 2 to be precise) but Lovely Hubby actually did all the hard work!! I'm so proud of him, pity he banned me from taking actual photos of the event, but I was needed to 'persuade' Betty to stand still, quite difficult when she weighs as much as me and is trying to eat my wellies whilst being inseminated!!
