Piglet pic
« on: December 14, 2011, 11:44:36 am »
So, here is my favourite photo of the OSB x Kune piglets  :thumbsup:
There are more here https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.300747823298078.73258.100000885881885&type=1&l=f05d62e74b hopefully you can see them !
They're now 10 days old and are definately bigger than the Kunes who are now 25 days old, so fingers crossed they'll keep growing at this rate. They have taken the chilled out temprament of the Kunes and are just gorgeous (but then, I am totally biased  ::) :D) And apologies for my ugly mug in the second photo - but thought it would give an idea of their size. We might be selling some of these as weaners next year, so if anyone is interested please let me know, they'll probably be ready to go from mid-February onwards.

 :D :D :D Mandy - it's ever so glam isn't it  ;)
I'm definately not looking my best though - got a terrible dose of laryingitus (sp?) again and am painkiller'd & anti-biotic'd up to the eyeballs !

Thanks everybody for your kind comments  :-*

Robert, I've not got a weigh-scale, I did look at a luggage weigher yesterday but for some reason didn't pick it up  :-\ I'll send Bruce out with the kitchen scales later  ::) ;D and report back.

Aww, bless  :love: :pig:  - I am most impressed at your being able to pick one up for a cuddle without it doing the squealy wriggly dance! 
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing
