The third day of life

After three nights, Dinah and her litter have settled down well. First thing this morning she had a long conversation with Bert the boar, who was getting very excited – roaring and frothing. When Dinah is out the piglets snooze in a heap or sometimes have a bit of rough and tumble play. She is very attentive when she returns, nuzzling individuals and rounding them up. As well as feeding, the litter lick mud from her legs – collecting the extra iron they need. They have not yet ventured outside themselves yet but that is sure to happen any day now.
