Seeing Spots

The baby pigs are doing really well!  They're eating like pigs (that saying is so true) and there are no visible rib bones or spines anymore.  In fact, the little runt drinks better than his bigger brother!

The pigs stayed in the house for only a night before they just got too stinky to stay any longer.  They're out in the barn with a heat lamp and are having a great time.  They run all around exploring, then crash under the heat lamp until the next feeding time. 

Here's the little runt above.

And the bigger of the two likes to try to escape. He's pretty vocal, and he loves getting back rubs and scratches. The runt does not like to be touched on his back.  It's funny how different they are. 

I'm really hoping they grow fast, because I'd like to put them in with the big pig so she has buddies.  Hopefully the weather will cooperate too, because it's gotten cold all of the sudden. You'd think it was spring or something!  ;-)

They are adorable! I know what you mean about getting them outside. I want our chicks OUT OF MY BATHROOM and in their coop -- but it is still too cold and we have no electric in that barn yet :/

They are so cute. I love pigs. I have to ask: are they for pets or pork chops?

Wow! Great job, Katie. They look so much more robust then the other day. I'm glad they're doing so well. They're so cute. :)
