Ossabaw Island Pig

This dark pig sure was enjoying his nearby mudhole before I took this picture…as you can probably tell from his muddy legs.  This pig was on the Great Hopes Plantation at Colonial Williamsburg, and he is of a breed that is similar to the pigs of the 17th century that played an important role in early colonial life.  From bacon to Virginia ham, early colonists certainly enjoyed their pigs.
