According to an old farmer's adage, that is the gestation rule of thumb for pigs.
Our gal, Sookie, delivered Monday night...after almost 4 months of waiting.
It's a small, but mighty litter. Her first.
And she's a good Mama...
The papa, Jackson, is now a "proven" boar.
And happy about his role in life.
Soon, they will be reunited again, and the circle of life will continue.
Jackson is a good boar, gentle and kind.
"Nothing is so strong as gentleness and nothing is so gentle as real strength."
Ralph W. Sockman
