Getting ready to farrow

Well, I am not but one of our Old Spot sows is. Any sow getting ready to farrow out creates a little nest for her soon-to-be piglets. I was out doing stuff and saw this sow making a nest just down the hill from the house. I was a little slow to capture her making her nest, but you will be able to see it in the video. Also, I couldn’t resist helping out the nest process by creating a quick little rain shelter. She probably didn’t need the help, but I did it anyways.

About 3 hours after I took this video, she farrowed out 12 piglets. I will shot a video of her litter soon and get up that upload as well.
