This little piggie went to market

Today started with a bang! Charlotte went into labour at 4:30am. Dave was going to work. He went into the barn to check on her and she had started her labour. We ended up with 10 little piggies! 3 boys and 7 girls. They are so cute. Our son is all in a panic. He's afraid Charlotte will squash them. This is a possibility since we are not using a farrowing crate. We find them to inhumane. We are trying it like in the old days. Just give them lots of room to move and they'll be fine.

I cleaned the goat pen today. I'm sure that they just wait to come from outside to poop in the barn. That or they are just pooping machines! It was a very hot and muggy day. The weather man was wrong again. It was supposed to rain and thunder.

Have a Blessed Day!
