Boars

 

Bel Canto Farm retains only the strongest boars to use in our breeding program.  They must score at the top of the Kunekune breed standard for confirmation and personality traits.  We require our boars to have exceptionally strong bone, wide shoulders, straight top-line, outstanding leg set and tracking, nice macho head with a broad snout, nice ear set, good eyes and curly tail.  They must have the sweet, docile personality that makes the Kunekune a joy to have on the farm.

Gus descends from our very first Kunekune, Babe.  The Tonganui line is one of the oldest in the US and we are thrilled to bring Gus up into the ranks of our foundation boars.  His dam, Stella, is our leading lady, making Gus one special guy.  He has a lovely frame with fluid movement. On top of broad shoulders is a lovely head with big, well attached wattles.  Underbelly boasts 12 evenly spaced teats.  A fine boar to carry on the tradition.
