Yes Russ , they are all freezer bound i have to say - i was only going to get two , but i had orders for pork to warrent getting all three by last week!!!
I would dearly love to get keep one to breed from , but just dont have the space - one day maybe?
 They are all little girls Rosemary - they are crossed with Berkshires believe it or not - the dad is a pure old spot though - and what a handsome beasty he was - absolutely immense - wouldnt want to cross swords with him!!!
they are fully settled in now and have just gone into their ark for the night - and dont they look sweet .all snuggled down in their fresh straw bed - awwww

They have fab markings - they put me in mind of Hilary - those really dark spots.  If they turn out to be anything like Hilary then mind your beds!
