Title: Registered gos gilt 7months old, North West Essex.
Post by: Carol Knights on August 05, 2010, 09:29:53 am
This, good natured, very nice pig is for sale as I don't need to add her to my herd. She has been shown successfully
so is very easy to handle. I need the space she occupies so I would let her go for a very attractive price for a very quick sale. Please call me, Carol Knights 07768 368053.

I would be very interested but as we are in Shropshire the distance is too far, are you ever further up country at all so we could meet? Have you any pictures you could email me and let me know the price you are looking for too? andrewpowis@tiscali.co.uk
Thanks

It's a shame that you are quite a long way from me. I will take some pictures today and try to put them here!
She will hogging in a day or two so if you have a suitable boar she could be put straight into pig if she goes quickly. I am only asking 175 because I'd like her to go live. She has such a nice nature and conformation that it would be a pity to kill her and she is well grown for her age because she had high qualitiy creep to get her growing well from young age. :pig:

I really would like her but still trying to persuade OH to travel that far, perhaps the photos will help!  :pig:

powispigs I have a sow which Carole bred.  She regularly produces 10 / 11 piglets all well grown at weaning.  There are quite a few GOS sows around descending from the original 3 Carole sent over here.  If you can make the journey I promise it will be worthwhile.

It 's always worth travelling for the right pig.

What bloodline is she Carole?

Hello, she is a Princess as most of mine are. I took some photos this morning and I'm now going to have a go at getting them up here!  :farmer:

I totally agree, quality pigs are worth travelling for.

I am sure she is worth the journey but as farmers and agricultural contractors it is very difficult to take a day off to travel so far at peak harvest time!  My husband is working form 7am til 11pm 7 days a week at the moment but I am still trying... :)
