Pigs have no idea how funny they look without even trying! This is another picture I took at one of the livestock barns at the Jackson County Fair a couple of weeks ago. Ever so dashing with a bit of wood shaving decor liberally strewn over ones' snout, don't you agree?! :D :D

The distinctive Hampshire pig is black with a white belt around its middle. It is possibly the oldest swine breed in the United States and was bred in Scotland and northern England between 1827 and 1839. It is a very popular breed of pig because it grows faster than Yorkshires, it's very well muscled, has a good temperament, and the sows are good mothers. And, I'd like to add, because they are really cute! :D

If you would like to know more about this pretty pig, there's an excellent page here: National Swine Registry: Hampshire
