    Older Pig Eating But Losing Weight?

    Hey, new to this forum! First, let me say that my girl (Neels - weird name, I know) is 6 years old, thus why I was not concerned when she began to lose a little weight; everyone I talked to about it said that this is normal. I have no way of weighing either of my girls, but I know that if I...
