Mrs Dalloway CONTEST!!. CONTEST!! CONTEST!!



If you are a fan of Virginia Woolf, as I am, or you've seen the movie (or read the book)  The Hours , you will recognize the name "Mrs. Dalloway" But if not it is no matter because we're not discussing literature tonight, we're discussing pig belly futures.

Mrs. Dalloway is one of our registered Red Wattle breeding Sows. She is 2 years old, sweet and kind with a lovely copper color. She is also pregnant with her third litter. The baby daddy is Wally.  Her actual due date is tomorrow Oct 26, based on the romantic activity witnessed by the farmer, three months, three weeks and three days ago.

 



That "romantic activity" is always quite disturbing to us. It's not so much the wine (Boones Farm) and Music (Air Supply, which I HATE)  or even the fact that they insist on  performing publically, as those motivators are just irritating, but the burning candles running along all three sides of the wood framed Hogcienda are just plain dangerous!  Apparently Wally is too cheap to invest in a few of those battery operated candles.


 
So, as you can see Mrs. Dalloway is well rounded and ready for motherhood, again. Man is she going to be ticked off when she sees the angle of this picture. Oh well...it's not my fault she's been fairly lazy these last few weeks.

 
See what I mean?
 
So lets have some fun at chubby Mrs. Dalloway's expense shall we? The contest goes as follows:
 
1. Guess the date of the birth
2. Guess the time of the birth
3. Guess the number of LIVE piglets born.
 
Keep in mind, her first litter produced 9 babies and her second one had 11.
 
You may enter only once. Leave your guesses in the comment section. OR on my Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/pages/South-Pork-Ranch-LLC/355405672736?bookmark_t=page
 
Any guesses that come in after the birth won't be considered. Sorry. How do I know you aren't just laying out there next to her maternity house counting babies as they pop out?
 
The winner is the one who is closest in all three areas and will be announced on this blog. The prize will be $25 of merchandise from our farm store (if you live close enough to drive over to Chatsworth, Illinois) or if not I'll email you and offer you a fine selection of items from our store, $25 worth, and I will mail them to you. Think handcrafted soaps, herbal teas, healing salves, GMO-free popcorn, raw honey, organic jams and jellies etc...
 
Yes, if you live out of the US of A you may play. Because I'm all generous like that you know.
Now hurry up and get your guesses in. The clock is ticking!

  1. Date: Probably on the cusp (to make life complicated).
    Time; As inconvenient as possible (they always are).
    Number: Far too few (We're talking $'s per piglet here).

  9. Now, does the time of birth reflected by the birth of the first piglet or the last? First I'm guessing.

    Okay - 27th at 12:20 and there will be 12 piglets :)

  11. I'll go for three in the morning of the 27th and say ten live piglets.

    I live in Angola (the country in Africa, not the Louisiana State Penitentiary) so if I win I would really, really like snake bite healing salve...
