split pea soup

I bought a nice looking ham hock for my split pea soup. I really prefer a meaty ham bone, but didn't have one. The hock I bought was lovely to look at, but when it came to taking the meat off to add to the soup, there was maybe a tablespoon of meat, if that. Did I just get a skinny hock, or are they usually like that? I should have thrown in a fat sausage!
