We have had our first litter of Wessex Saddlebacks. They were born yesterday. Luckily only one of our three sows appears to have been pregnant, as she had a large litter and we had only built one farrowing pen.
None of our sows seemed to fall pregnant last year, but this year at least one has got the job done...
They are by far the cutest of all the new born animals at Willowbrook. The odd one out is 'Caramel', who by rights ought to be black and white like the others.
By this Christmas we should have sold most of the animals born over the last 2 months, and start to recoup some of the money put into starting up the farm (and a nice Christmas dinner!)
