Transcript of the Oxford Sandy & Black Pigs

0:01
this is Dottie the pig
0:03
she is an oxford sandy and black pig and
0:07
has called Forge Mill Farm and Sandwell
0:10
Valley her home since she was only a
0:13
baby she’s now three years old and she
0:16
loves scratches and loves digging in the
0:19
mud
0:20
the Oxford Sandy and Black breed is over
0:22
300 years old and they have actually
0:26
nearly gone extinct two
0:28
times so we’re very pleased to have
0:31
Dottie here at the farm and the Rare
0:33
Breed Survival Trust have actually
0:35
marked them as
0:36
an at-risk group so it’s really important
0:38
we keep breeds like Dottie
0:40
alive and going for the future Dottie is
0:44
very good at living out in the woods and
0:46
foraging on anything she can find she’s
0:48
also very good at digging so have a look
0:50
at some of her holes she’s done and some
0:52
of the walls she’s made when you come to
0:54
visit her and don’t forget to give her a
0:57
good old scratch
