The Welsh harlequin is a breed of domestic duck that was developed in Wales during the twentieth century. Its development began in 1949, when Leslie Bonnet found a coloration mutation in one member of his flock of Khaki Campbells.

It was officially recognized by the American Poultry Association in 2001. The Welsh...

The Wessex saddleback, also known as the Wessex pig, is a breed of domestic pig that was developed in Wessex. Its complete origin is unknown, with some stating that is was developed by crossing the Old English sheeted pig and a breed of black pig from the New Forest region.
