Valentine the pig steals the show

15-02-2008 | |

At ByFord’s Farm near Newent, southwestern England, an 11-day-old piglet recently grabbed the centre of attention.

The youngest of a litter of seven was born with a heart-shaped patch on its side and thus was named “Valentine” by its specialist breeder Eric Freeman.

“The clear heart-shaped mark is a first I have even seen in my life,” commented Freeman.    

“Valentine stole the show in the run up to Valentine’s Day,” he said.
