Kune Kune Pigs
Kune Kune are a small pig. Their name is pronounced Cooney Cooney, and means fat and round in Maori.These pigs look like a Walt Disney cartoon version of a pig. They are between twenty four and thirty inches high, and one hundred and twenty to two hundred and forty pounds in weight. They are completely covered in hair which can be anything between short and straight, and long and curly. They come in a range of cream, ginger, brown, black and spotted. They have a medium to short snout, and either prick or flopped ears. They have short legs and a short round body. The most unusual feature of most Kune Kune pigs is a pair of tassels, called piri piri, under their chin like a goat. This is not unique to the Kunes but it is unusual. Temperament wise, they are delightful, being placid and very friendly. They thrive on human company
We have many kune kune pigs here at Cantref including our famous pig racing pigs and Star our Britain's Got Talent Pig. We also have a few breeding sows so there are usually a few piglets running around!
