Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have an interest in 18th. Century Swine, particularly in the early Colonial American period. To date I have only read of "Guinea Hogs" those chiefly grass-eating hogs, rust in color and having association with slavers and slave ships and imported into the US Southlands, and also of Ossawbwa Island Hogs, those hardy Spanish-derived hogs which have miniaturized off the coast of SC/GA, and of which our General Washington had an interest.

Any other important "Colonial Hogs" that we know of? I am putting the hog question in with the garden, thinking that HT will not be up for a period livestock board as well.........LOL..thanks..Mike
