Spring into Action

Oaklands Pigs were once again at the SPRING LIVE show at the South of England Showground for the Bank Holiday weekend. Although dry it was quite cold especially on Sunday, but that didn’t stop the visitors coming. In the pen we had Dominic who will be our new breeding boar when he is older and a saddleback gilt Rosie who is 4 months old. They were both very obliging in letting everyone stroke them but not so good when loading them in the trailer to leave, as they went on a small detour around the animal barn – obviously wanting to say goodbye to everyone ! But after some assistance from the cattle and sheep breeders and even the reptile handlers joined in, we managed to corral them into the trailer.
