Very much the Saddleback in colouring, but a bit of the both in conformation - what are their natures most like?
I'm still surprised that you're the first person on here to get this cross Coopers - maybe you should patent it - hows about Kunebacks?  ;D

I'd maybe try pm'ing Oaklands  ;)
They have Kunekunes and a whole range of breeds - best guess for an estimate or indication of how they'll grow.

Even if they do end up a wee bit smaller, they'll still taste great  :yum:
They're gorgeous though and look as chilled out as the Kunes  ;D

They are lovely, very very inquisitive and happy - always smiling - follow me or the children everywhere even without food as an incentive.

Can you really patent a cross breed?

Any advice I give is purely based on my experience .... It may not be from 20 years of farming or a book I have read .... however it has worked for me.

I was being a bit  :-J  ... but ... I know it's done with chickens (like Black Rocks) or dogs (like labradoodles).  I think there's something about being able to reproduce the same type with each cross, getting the best bits of the 2 breeds - not sure if it's done with pigs though - you could start a new fashion  ;D

yes it is done with pigs that is how the commercial pigs are bred     don't think this cross will be a winner unless it is for roast suckling pig  but you never know a bit of sharp practise with the marketing and all sold :farmer:

You could just as easily be describing my OSB x Saddlebacks - such lovely pigs I want to do it again!  No children for them to follow, so they would work alongside the collies - at a certain age, looking very like them!   :D
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cow, beef cattle, pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing
