We left Dane Aqueduct yesterday morning and headed for Congleton where we moored for a couple of hours to allow Jill and I to do some Christmas shopping. That done we pulled pins again and headed down towards the outskirts of Scholar Green where we are now.    This morning while Joe was changing the gearbox oil I washed the side of Caxton, and made some soup and cleared out some cupboards.  

Chores done it was time to take the dogs out for a walk.  We headed up the hill towards Mow Cop and then off towards Great Moreton Hall where we came across these pigs. 

Are they Lincolnshire Curly Coats or Kune Kune perhaps?  Does anyone recognise the breed?

So, they've finally managed to cross sheep with pigs to give us....Lork, no, Pamb, maybe Portton :-)

Sorry, I can only tell the difference between ham, bacon, and pork chops.

Hi Sue
The rediscovered Lincolnshire Curly Coat I think might be the one called the sheep-pig? You couldn't eat these guys they were far too cute.
