Bo Diddley - Midnight Lover, Hog of Mystery

We've never seen our year old plus boar (Bo Diddley) attempt to mount either of our sows, and that was beginning to worry us, but Bo obviously likes the ladies. Our sow Magnolia had 4 babies Saturday morning - 3 girls and 1 boy - and Scarlet, Magnolia's sister, had 7 boys on April 9th (see previous post). Apparently Bo works his magic at night, then lounges during the day.

3 Girls - $250 per (1 is already spoken for)

8 Boys - $150 per (7 from Scarlet; 1 from Magnolia)

Magnolia's lot of 4 will be ready to go June 12th, and Scarlet's 7 boys can leave the farm as early as May 21st. All of Scarlet's boys look great, but one in particular is quite the specimen. If you're interested in any of our hogs, send an email to or call 910-540-4475.

"Tank" (the specimen) above on the right and Scarlet's 5 other boys below.


  1. Awww... love the piggy pictures!

    Our Guinea hogs bred for the first time this afternoon, while I was standing about 2 feet away. I love it that I don't have to guess the breeding date.

    So we should have our first piglets sometime in late August. Can't wait!

  2. I guess when it comes to pigs exhibitionism is a good thing:)

  3. Yes, well, it was a hot day, and I had just finished spraying the hose for them so they could cool down. I guess it made them feel all "invigorated"! :-)
