Sweet Clover


Is she or isn’t she?  We did the AI (artificial insemination) with Clover two weeks ago, and we should know whether or not she is pregnant sometime next week.  If she shows no signs of heat, we can celebrate with some champagne (not for the expectant mother, of course!  Oh, and not the kids either…. so I guess it will be me and Mark drunk on a bottle of champagne).  If she starts to go into heat again, we will have to do the AI or find a boar to do the *job* the old-fashioned way.

I can see the craigslist ad now.

“SPP (single pink pig) seeks SB (single boar) who enjoys rooting in the dirt, lounging in the mud and chewing leaves and acorns.  Must love long walks in the pasture and holding hooves with me.  Must be okay with a little meat on a girl.”

Sigh.  I hope it doesn’t come to that.  Cross you fingers for us, k?
