Naming Saddleback Pigs

Here are my saddleback gilts. I can’t introduce you to them properly as they haven’t been named yet!

I am going to name the pigs as I hope to breed saddleback pigs from them and so I intend to keep these gilts for a couple of years.

I would like a pair of names for the two female pigs.

Here are the names I have thought about so far;

  • Salt & Pepper.
  • Margot & Barbara.
  • Ham & Bacon.

As you can see I am struggling to come up with a good pair of names, so if anyone has any suggestions then please leave a comment – thanks.

    How about the following names for your Gilts.
    Mild And Bitter
    or Rooter and Router
    All the Best

  5. How about Flotsam and Jetsam.

    Keets are doing fine. One of the lavenders has white wings now. Update soon.
