Mildred is due to farrow!

Mildred is now due to farrow in the next week. I've moved her to new pasture so that the piglets have lovely fresh grass to start on - otherwise they'll get stuck in the mud!

She will farrow in the most natural of ways - in an ark without rails as she is an experienced mum. I will be keeping a close eye on her and on the day of birth I'll spend all or most of the day or night with her, or nearby at least so I can check on her every couple of hours.

Exciting times!
