+ Happy New Year +


4 piglets to Big Pig – my oldest pig and heaviest at about 250kilos

She is the matriarch of the herd and even though known for her common sense and gentle temperament, clearly had a moment of madness with the escapee Tamworth boar 3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days prior to New Year’s Day..

So, these 4 are Berkshire, Middle White, Tamworth crosses – and fighting each other from the moment of birth – that’s the Tamworth, the domestic breed closest to the wild boar.
