Representing the third generation of pigs born and raised on our farm, is Miss Pinky Pie (our grand-daughter named her). Her first litter is due this weekend.
We tried breeding her earlier, but Hurricane Iselle dropped in just a couple days after - we think the stress of that caused her to not "take". The next heat cycle came, and so did the lava flow - this time we were too stressed. So, she's quite a bit older than we usually aim for with a first litter.
Pinky has all the characteristics we've been working towards: good size and conformation, sweet temperament, excellent instincts... and her siblings made some mighty fine meat pigs. Won't be long now when we get to see how Pinkie does as a mama-sow.
