Last night Ruby became a sow, farrowing 8 piglets by dawn, with 7 6 still living! Though I haven't counted exactly, they look to be mostly males, which would confirm an old saying that early litters are large and mostly female, while late litters (as this one seemed to be) are small and mostly male. Here's a video and some photos Jen got this morning.


  1. Good to hear that the first litter has arrived! Hope all 6 grow up to be big and healthy!

  2. Sounds like a very contented mother............
