Piglets Nursing in Upper Field
These are some of the sixty or so piglets that were born last month. They are just along the edge of a small wooded patch we left when clearing the new fields. The pigs like these margin areas. The retreat under the trees in inclement weather. With the tight cover of conifers it is almost like a shed.
We had a cluster of births so now there are month old piglets all over the place in both the north and south fields. We have opened up the boundary between the two fields so that the groups can get to know each other again in preparation for migrating the north herd south up over the mountain for the winter.
