Gloucestershire Old Spots are an English breed and are the oldest pedigree spotted pigs in the world. Old Spots are friendly, calm and intelligent pigs. They are classified as a rare breed with less than 2000 known to exist in the world. Old Spots are named after their characteristic black spots. Traditionally they grazed in apple and pear orchards where they would eat the fallen fruit. Legend says that the pig’s spots are bruises from the falling fruit. In 1994, a Gloucestershire Old Spot boar was sold at auction for 4,000 guineas, the equivalent of £4,200 which made it the most expensive pig in Britain and earned it a place in the Guinness Book of Records.
