The Last Food of England
 
A Wessex saddleback sow, restyled 'British', at home on a common in Wessex doing what she does best. The antecedents of this pig went to America, and have now returned to England, longer in the leg but with the same marking, as the (New) Hampshire breed. This sow forages and wanders by day, often taking a trip of piglets, and returns to her quarters at night. She got into a a garden belonging to a friend of mine and ate most of his spinach. According to local tradition, and in law, it was his fault for not securing the boundaries.
