End of Summer Photos

I’ve been busy but managed to snap some photos for everyone to enjoy! Hope to get more updates soon. 🙂

The newest litter of piglets with their mom, Dipper. I accidentally disrupted a nursing session. This litter loves to stay outdoors rather than in the main barn.

Here is one of our show pigs, Spalsh. She is a Yorkshire cross gilt from a litter born earlier this year. I can't wait to show her at the State Fair next weekend! Don't worry. She cleans up nicely.
