Meet Pepperdine, a two-month-old Hog Island lamb. 

Conan (yes, he's named after Conan O'Brien) is an Ossabaw hog who was born on St. Patrick's Day. 

When their moms needed help raising them, Conan and Pepperdine went home with our Livestock team to be bottle fed for several weeks. While living together, the adorable duo became best friends.

Conan and Pepperdine, about 3 and 5 weeks oldThey love playing together, although Pepperdine is much bigger than Conan.


Hog Island sheep and Ossabaw hogs are listed as “critical” with The Livestock Conservancy, meaning there are less than 2,000 of each breed worldwide. To contribute to the conservation effort, we are involved in a careful breeding program to preserve these rare breeds that resemble the sheep and pigs found in the colonies during George Washington's time.
