Blackie

This is the first picture I have of her. She is a little muddy.

James purchased this show hog from Roman Henke in Hallettsville in the fall of 2011. She did not make show weight and he showed his backup hog, also from Henke. He decided to keep Blackie, and we bred her to Daddy O, our registered Red Wattle boar. Our intent was to have her farrow at the right time to use the piglets for FFA hogs in the 2012-2013 season. She continued to grow and looked like a fine gilt. She was scheduled to farrow on August 15th, but went to the 18th. (we might have calculated wrong) The date was fine, the farrowing was far from it.

We lost 4 piglets, and Blackie that weekend. This is a page in remembrance of a sweet little hog.
