Up to our elbows in piglets!

Excuse me.  Who's up to their elbows in piglets?

Here are a few pictures of just a few of the piglets we've got on hand at the moment.  It's harder than you'd think to take pictures of piglets.  They're fast.  Very fast.  So most of my shots were either empty (because all the piglets had scattered) or just full of blurs (because even the 'sports' setting on my camera isn't quick enough to catch skedaddling piggies.) 

 Of course, they're also very very curious.  This one came over to see what I was doing.  Then he was pushed out of the way by these little dudes

who were also wondering.  Then they all went back to a productive afternoon of tussling, racing, and getting their faces dirty.

These are my favorites - I do love polka dot pigs:

Especially when they come in all different colors.
These little cuties are only a couple of days old, but are already tussling with each other, which is why the piggies in the center are blurry.  They plant their feet and try to push each other over with their noses and shoulders.  Sort of like sumo wrestling but on a very small scale.  If you listen closely, you can even hear them giggling...

Here's another version of polka dot pigs. Or, well, freckle-butts, actually.

They're exhausted from a hard day of pigging.  Though they'll be back up and at 'em in about 15 minutes or so.   Their batteries recharge amazingly fast.
Mama's nap might go on a bit longer, however.  With that crew to take care of, she needs her rest.

You're going to eat all those little piggies... aren't you?
