Love is Love. When our five year old fell in love our first year farming, we went without pork in our own freezer. Blackie and Scratchy are sweet and thankfully both of them turned out to be a great moms too. Blackie is a Hampshire/Yorkshire cross and Scratchy is a Mulefoot/Large Black cross. We breed them with our registered Mulefoot boars. Blackie gives us some interestingly colored pigs. I must admit it is nice to break up all the black in the herd and it makes it much easier to identify and name the piggies.
