Cardamon with Piglets
That is Cardamom, I should the Miracle Pig, with her nine piglets in the south field. After a drought of piglet’s in June and most of July we’ve been getting a deluge this past week – 68 piglets born in ten days.
I say Cardamom is a miracle pig because this past winter she sustained a very bad cut. I was all prepared to put her down. I didn’t think she would survive and the 18″ long by 8″ wide gash on her back was deep into the muscle. We don’t know what happened but she didn’t seem to be in any pain so I waited, watching for signs of infection that never came.
Now, five months later you can barely see any indentation in Cardamom’s back where the huge flap healed. I think that what saved her is she got her cut in the middle of the winter, which is reasonably antispectic, unlike Holly’s cut which is also now all healed up.
