Hi AlanB,

Your smaller hog doesn’t look malnourished or thin as such, just smaller as you say. Its hard to judge the relativity of size from the clip – but based on other objects around them they both look to be within the normal adult hog size I would say. I would say though that your larger hog does looks like a bit of a ‘homper hog’. The way he / she moves also suggests a larger sized hog – so perhaps you are just seeing ones at opposite ends of the hog scale which exaggerates their relative sizes?
Noteworthy that homper hog didn’t delay too much in getting into what looks like your feeding station either – less interested in the company – and knew exactly where the food was located?
