2021 Herd Boar: End Zone

End Zone, 2021.

Unwanted weight gain. A problem my breeding boar and I share.

I would like to keep End Zone around for a long time to service his contemporary sows. And the best way for me to keep him active and doing his job is to keep him from getting too heavy.

Its important for people as well. I read that losing 10 lbs is like taking 40 lbs off your joints. I’m sure that’s an over simplification, but the principle is probably right.

As I age, I find it easier to gain weight and more difficult to lose. I’m back on the meat and egg diet for a few weeks, but am not losing the weight as fast as I did 12 years ago when I started this blog.

Below are a couple of photos of End Zone from last year about this time. I was interested to see how much he has grown so I used myself as a reference point.

I would estimate he’s grown 2 to 4 inches and 150 to 200 lbs.

I’m curious to see what he looks like next year at this time.

End Zone, 2020.

    End Zone has matured into a great boar. That’s a mighty ham and a nice broad loin. I can understand why you’d like that boar to stick around.
