|Sow Spot with 5 week old piglets. Check out those hams-to-be|
And No, Freddie has not been beheaded. He just has to stick his nose
in everyone's business.
The first time we bred them to a Red Wattle Boar, we knew we were onto something. The Spotted Wattle was hatched. The piglets were long like their mama's with about 50-75% of them carrying the famous wattles under their necks. Most were red in color, some had spots. All were solid , husky meat types. This last batch of piglets springing forth from Dot had even more fun coloring-white socks. Now genetically that confuses me because when it comes to genetics I am easily confused. Neither parent had white socks. Did these leggings come from a grand pig or did I leave a bucket of white paint out in the pasture...again ?
Now of course the hard decision rears its ugly snout. Which babes do we raise for meat? Which do sell as feeders to others ? Which shall we keep for our own breeding program ?
|Yes, hello. Is this thing on ? Yeah, Ok. |
My name is Four Socks, you may have seen me in "Dances with Hooves"
Anyway, I'm asking for your vote to remain on the farm for future breeding stock.
Please and Thank You
