New Arrival of Gloucesters.
« on: December 23, 2007, 05:46:18 am »
Hi All.
       Just wanted to share my good news!
    Beth, my 14 month old, pedigree Gloucester Old Spot gilt, gave birth 2 days ago to 8 spotty piglets.
  Perhaps they to may be pedigrees but as yet it's to soon to tell if they will meet the pedigree standard.
  All are well inspite of the bitter weather, though now it has warmed up a bit I still have placed a heat lamp
  in the creep should they need it.

        Well Merry Christmas to One and All.

Fab news! They are the prettiest little piglets. So far I have only seen photos of this breed born so looking for to seeing some for real in the New Year.

Congratulations and well done mum!
