Settling Down

Empire to the Rescue

Empire to the Rescue

When we chose Empire as the mother of our herd we had no idea how much she’d teach us , and how many times she would save our butts. Here she is with her new litter of 13 healthy piglets. But even queens make mistakes.



This is Chupa, one of Empire’s daughters, Empire accidently stepped on her head. Due to her injuries, she could move her legs, but wasn’t able to walk. I think she had a concussion.  I have been bottle feeding her for a five days and she’s shown great improvement, she teeters, but she’s walking.  Though I would rather there hadn’t been an injury, it has been satisfying to see this piglet recover. Empire is helpful even when she makes mistakes.
