The little fellow in the photo is "Teddy" so named for his nature.Teddy is a cross mangalitsa-duroc pig. He is the brother of Little Bean and Bess, who you will get to meet later on. He came to us from an organic, free-range farm, so had never been treated for anything at all so when he first arrived he was hideously covered in lice, to the point that touching him, they would run up your arm. He was slightly underweight, but very loving.

Teddy has grown into a magnificent little man of around 90 kilos. He will be the first person to come if you sit in the garden, he will come and lie on you. He is incredibly loving, and very protective of the other animals, not necessarily the pigs, so when there is a fight in the garden, he will stand between the birds that are fighting and play referee.

Teddy’s favourite snack is peaches and pears, although he will do a little run around and yelp for a biscuit. We have never taught him to do it, but he gets very excited for a biscuit. He is the most gentle. It must be said that boars are always maligned as being aggressive and dangerous and we find that actually the boars are more easily handled and more gentle than the sows.
