I would guess that she's a spotted Poland China sow. Approximately 500 lbs, and judging from her underline, she has never farrowed. She seems to be eating straight corn from her concrete feed bowl. Looking at her back legs, which are beginning to break down, I would suggest that she be put on a bit of a diet to lose some weight. Make sure she gets plenty of exercise.

How close am I in my guesses?

She is just a pet, so no plans on breeding and you are correct that she has not had babies.

She is one of the zoo mascots. We were hoping to take her to the WI state fair for the big pig contest, but it didn't work out this summer.

She is over 500 lbs. She weighed 1019 pounds last fall, and she is bigger now.

She has not had any leg issues.

She is 3 to 4 years old.

Anyone interested in visiting her- she is at Special Memories Zoo in Greenville, WI.
