Gloucester Old Spot

We met this rather aggressive Old Spot sow on a walk recently, fortunately the other side of the fence.
As we approached her quietly feeding her litter of piglets she hurriedly sent them into the undergrowth whilst noisily warning us not to approach!
It is good to know this previously rare breed is now gaining popularity and to see them living naturally in the open air.
