Piggy Photo Time !


Great oaks from little acorns grow?
I thought I'd take advantage of it not raining for five minutes today and take these pictures. Here's Theoaks Josephine ( pet name Gladys) our five year old GOS Sow. We've had her for a year or two and she's had two litters here with us and hopefully she'll go on for a good while yet. She's a lovely old pig. Her next litter is due on or around the second of February.
The next photo is of her January born gilts to Carhall Patrick. Because of how the naming system works, these three are all OvertheGate Josephines . If we'd kept any boars back, they these would have been OvertheGate Patricks.
The third picture is of Gladys's last litter which were born in July. They'll all be off for the freezer at the end of January.
