A new Dawn for the Kune?

Post by RupertRankin » Tue May 28, 2013 9:29 pm

What the heck..?

Yesterday at Sherborne a small hairy wattled pig, having won its class, entered the ring with a mixture of traditional breeds and was judged Champion by Mrs Case. Sadly I wasn't there to see it with my own eyes, nor was I at the Somerset show a few weeks ago when Martin Snell declared another Kune Reserve Champion in the Interbreed.

Last year my ginger boar found himself being shoved into the ring for the Interbreed class at Devon. The judge and compere ignored him, a pet in the wrong ring I suppose. But both Maureen and Martin were there. So I can't get rid of this feeling.....something's afoot!

Martin Snell very kindly travelled all the way from Devon to the north of Scotland last year to judge the pig classes at the Scottish Smallholder & Grower Festival. He saw quite a lot of kunekunes there :D and perhaps some of the enthusiasm for keeping these charismatic little pigs rubbed off on him :wink:
It's great that they're finally being taken seriously in the ring - long may it continue.
