Hi Simbo65

The hogs here seem to be doing o.k., although I’m currently having to do supervised feeding, because of a particularly persisitent rat, so some are missing out on food on the days they don’t turn up early enough.

The strimmer hog (name Siili – hedgehog in Finnish) is apparently doing well. The wound is all healed up but the spines not grown yet, so may be a couple of weeks. I was a bit worried that they might think the hog shouldn’t come back because of it’s eyes, but now they seem to think it will be o.k. It is always a bit of a worrying time with any hog which has been away for quite a while, but my feeling is, that if Siili is to be completely wild again, this is the best place. He/she survived all winter, so that must say something about his/her survival instincts and knowledge of the area.

Keep an eye on Limpy Lou’s leg, in case it’s more of a problem than you think. If he was doing the huffing he might be a she! It’s the females who do the huffing during courtship. Sometimes a female will start huffing on the approach of another female – but usually stops once she realises her mistake!

Glad to hear that Cylopsina has finally moved out! But good that she is still visiting. Fingers crossed that she has some hoglets for when you return from your holiday.
