New Year's Piglets!

On the morning of New Year's day, Ruby began to deliver her second litter, farrowing 11 piglets by about 5 pm. While one was stillborn and another born seemingly lame (its hind quarters never moved), another piglet was found dead a day later with a deep laceration in its front shoulder. Since then, however, each of the remaining eight continue to live and thrive. Welcome to all 15 of the new piglets now living at Ecotone!

Below are some photos of the other, older litter of piglets from Sadie, which now venture boldly out into the snow to romp and root around.
