Understand that a sow delivers all the pigs from one horn (or side) of the uterus and then delivers the other side. Sometimes they take a bit of a rest inbetween.... so don't be surprised if she seems done then starts again. Not always... but to not get too impatient. and they don't necessarily have even numbers or anything like that. Being a gilt and a kunekune I would hope that she stops at 7-8 or so. That is plenty for her to take care of...

Was typing and hit send when you posted the pics. Great... 8 is plenty for her. Hope she is a careful type of mother with getting up and down so does not lay on any of the piglets. Most will get back up or move if a pig gets squished between her and the wall or partially under her as she lays down, and it squeals. She will get it figured out if she is halfway smart. Nice looking litter.....

Yeah, she passed both horns! Been singing and feeding for nearly and hour now.
