3 months, 3 weeks, 3 days…… and 3 degrees

Was talking with the farmer we buy milk from the other day.  I mentioned that our pig was about to farrow, and we were expecting a pretty sharp temperature drop.  He said his dad always told him pigs had a gestation period of 3 months, 3 weeks, 3 days, at 3 am.  I laughed, as this seems to be the way with all livestock.  It turns out the saying has another part – 3 degrees.  (Well, it may not be quite that cold, but it got down to 16 this morning, so I’ll claim 3 degrees)  I had to work an overnight shift last night, so I didn’t get a chance to check the pig until this evening after dark.  We have 6 healthy looking little piggies nestled up all snug with their mama.  Will check on them in the daylight tomorrow, and hopefully get some pictures.  Hopefully everyone is surviving this cold weather.  Supposed to get down around 20 tonite.  BRRRR.  Throw another log in the stove, and add another blanket on the bed!

Until next time……..
