Do you ever see iron age pigs about green lurchers.?

I’ve got two but can’t find a decent boar, might have to try going back to a Tamworth.

They all take after the boar side of the breeding i think in looks.

Smart looking animals in my opinion.

I reckon they have a very similar head to the Tamworth, in shape not colour obv.

Similar heads anyway i thought.narrow head,long snout.tamworth is a really old breed aint they.thats why they x them.to keep the look but to quiet them down.

After chewing a lumps pork from  the Oxford sandy and the Norfolk large black imo the Norfolk was the tastier and held a thicker layer of fat which made for the better crackling 👍

Very nice mate but do you no think the rare breeds meats a bit overpriced ?.

Strange heard that the only way to save a rare breed is to eat one
