The Cromwell’s are proud to announce the birth of their first pigs. Aubrey is going to send me some pictures tomorrow and can’t wait to see how they look. Apparently we have a mix of colours and Alison says when they were born they start running around at high speed.
More to come. Sewweee.
And here are the pictures and a movie too. Thanks Aubrey you girls did a great job at naming them too:
Diesel, Black Bear, Boo, Scout and Whistle.
