Rosie-May's Piglets farrowed 10th April 2020

On Good Friday, April 10th 2020, our darling ex-show pig Rosie-May, farrowed her first litter of 5 piglets. 

Despite the heat, Rosie-May's labour was quick and stress-free, and the new mum produced lots of milk. 

Kew Little Pigs owner, Oliva was there on hand to make sure Rosie was comfortable. 

One of her piglets a little girl sadly didn't make it, despite best efforts and her brother who was a little runt is living with farm manager Jen who has given him round the clock care to keep him alive. 

We are thrilled to say that Tiny Tim, ( who was named in our Facebook competition) is now thriving and Tiny Tim is feeding well on complex care and goats milk and is even enjoying banana porridge! Jen has been the best surrogate mummy!

Rosie-may is doing well as are the rest of her piglets!
