Tamworth Gilt Farrows Her First Litter

Our beautiful Tamworth gilt Orange farrowed her first litter of piglets last night. Not only was it her first litter, but ours too! Seven little piglets, one after the other came out and immediately began searching for mama's milk. Many of these little beauties are already reserved, but we still will have more available when our second gilt farrows.
