Some of our guests were lucky enough to be staying in Nant when Magldi, one of our Kune Kune pigs gave birth. A bit of a surprise as we didnâ€™t know she was pregnant. We had borrowed Hafren, a pedigree Kune Kune boar from some friends before Christmas. His breeding abilities werenâ€™t proven however and unfortunately he didnâ€™t seem very interested in our girls. We tried playing a Barry White CD and introduced some soft lighting to the pig sty but eventually presumed that the â€˜chemistryâ€™ just wasnâ€™t right.
3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days later (the length of a pigs pregnancy) and Hafrens credentials are irrefutable. And now that weâ€™re paying a bit more attention our other sow also seems to be â€œin pigâ€. Iâ€™ll keep you posted.
