I can't believe how fast this past month has passed.  Usually the months in the dead of winter pass so slowly, but this year has been so different.  There have been so many new arrivals in the barnyard, new lambs, goats, calves and now,  two litters of pigs.  These little guys were born when it was -30 outside.  I have a little farrowing barn that we heat so these guys are quite comfortable when it's nasty outside.  The mom is a duroc sow we got last fall.  It's her second litter and we bred her to Boris, our Yorkshire boar.  Everyone is doing well, they are already sneaking out of their pen to run around and explore.  Should have lots of Christmas hams!
