Pig Chess Success: An Update

I got a message from Ines about the pig cesareans. All went very well! The vets delivered 10 female and 5 male piglets, who are all happily nursing with their foster mother. Here are some photos of the new piglets. Isn’t it amazing how much a pig teat looks like a human breast?

I’m very familiar with milk-drunk smiles!
