How Much does Your Pig Weigh?

I finally got around to trying to figure out Rosie’s weight. I’ve just been sayin’ “500 lbs” as a guess….shes lost alot of weight so maybe she’s less now? I don’t know…I’ve seen her at her biggest and she looks kinda small to me now.

I used the string method which is their heart girth in inches (string goes around their ribcage right behind the front legs) squared multiplied by their length between their tail and ears diveded by 400. Its apparently very accurate…..can’t remember my measurements but according to the string Miss Sassypants weights:


614 lbs.

Okay, maybe she IS a big pig.
