Saddleback sow joined the animals at Karma Farm in 2008 and gave
birth to fourteen piglets in May!
British Saddleback is an old and rare breed of pig and on the
'endangered list, It was originally
known as the ‘Wessex Saddleback’ from the New Forest area of
England and the ‘Essex’ of East Anglia. The two breeds were
combined in the 1960’s because the numbers were dropping so
breed is very hardy and they are renowned for being excellent
mothers so we look forward to our piglets thriving.
