    That's great! I suppose she deserved a little rest after delivering all those babies.

    Well one of my gilts was supposed to go for processing but she never did. And then I noticed she was pregnant. I assumed the babes were from one of her brothers because well, She was in with them until a few months ago. However upon the first baby being born I realized that these were not inbred and were from my breeding boar Atlas. See the mother is a swallow belly which when bred to another swallow(her brother) will produce 100% swallow. But the first piglet born was a blonde which can only happen if the sire is blonde. When a swallow and blond have babies there will be a mix of the two. Unless of course your boar has such a dominant blonde gene that he overrides the swallow one, the same thing happened with Prissy’s litter. Needless to say I was a bit dumbfounded when the first baby born was blonde. She did great and had five lil babes.

    I guess she and Atlas went on a date without your permission :)
    Congrats on the new babes.

    Genetics is an interesting study. I'd say name one Whosyerdaddy, but you already figured it out. Those are some cutie little stripers!
