Tinkerbell back on her feet after farrowing

Here’s a home video we filmed when our sow Tinkerbell gave birth to her litter of 12 piglets. It was an extraordinary experience to share with my sons who were around 4 years old at the time… I love watching it and hearing their commentary – very cute!

The actual birth of a piglet occurs at the 2.40 mark. The video gives an idea of our set up for farrowing,  and piglet care.

Tinkerbell now lives with Matthew Evans (aka Mr Gourmet Farmer), so it’s nice for us to watch this and recall the time we had with her … she was a lovely pig to have around – very gentle and affectionate and a great mother (very patient!).
