I’m looking for another Sow, ideally Bluebell or Ellen, but would consider anything other than Princess Joan or Princess. Would happily wait until September/October time if something is due to be weaned around that time. Preferably from somewhere in the south end of Wales, unless delivery can be arranged from elsewhere.
Appreciate email in first instance: firstname.lastname@example.org
Many thanks.20th May 2011 at 2:14 pm #9813GOSParticipant
Nothing like forward planning! Don’t forget the GOS Show & sale at Cirencester in Aug where there will hopefully be a selection to choose from. Catalogues should be available from the Voyce Pullin website much closer to the event.20th May 2011 at 2:24 pm #9815Anonymous
Oh yes, I’d forgotten about the Show/Sale. Never managed to get there as yet – but am hoping to make it this year. I’ll have to see if I can find out the date……and book it into the Diary 20th May 2011 at 3:56 pm #9817GOSParticipant

Blinkers, we’ll have a young Bluebell sow that we’re selling, she’s due to farrow (hopefully!) so we’ve taken her off sale as don’t want to upset her but she’ll be weaned off in a few months and then can be re-covered by our chap if required, she’s a lovely girl, this is her second litter, we’ve reared her from weaning, she comes to call and is really easy to move around [:)]
am saying hopefully due to farrow as we had a nightmare time of 6 farrowing at once and we lost track, she is in pig though, she was scanned in pig and she’s getting a bag on her now so it’s closer [:)]
we never intended to keep her…but you know how it goes, you get attached, you’re welcome to come view her or I can send some piccies over to you via email! [:D]
we’re in Belper, Derbyshire [:)]22nd May 2011 at 6:53 pm #9821Anonymous
Hi CarrHallPigs – she sounds ideal…..only trouble is, you’re too far away from us. It would be at least a 10 hr round trip with the trailer and we just can’t be away from the farm for that long as there are a lot of animals to feed….and milk! Thanks anyway.
Having said that – there is an option that if someone is willing to deliver….we do have a little Holiday Annexe that the seller would be more than welcome to use overnight [:D].19th June 2011 at 4:21 pm #9900Anonymous
Still lookin’ 20th June 2011 at 10:39 am #9904Anonymous
ahh I see, sorry, we’ve got the same problem of can’t be away overnight to deliver one, shame, she had 9 fantastic piglets too and will go back to the same boar! 
good luck with the search 21st June 2011 at 11:33 pm #9907Anonymous
