By the way, our gilt, Rhea, is officially a sow. She had her first litter of babies a few weeks ago. She has 6 of them that are doing well. Rhea is a very gentle and laid back momma. (a.k.a. doesn’t act like she wants to eat you) I visited the pigs and all of the babies were super friendly; coming over to have their ears and backs scratched. They are doing really well.

In other news, the other 3 big pigs are doing great outside and all 3 manage to wedge their butts in the shed Jim built. While I have not seen this myself, I hear it is quite comical.
You may recall from a previous post that I needed to get mud boots (it is now mud season after all). I used my new boots over the weekend and this called for another group boot photo (mine are the black ones with white polka dots on the far left).
