Hi Julie

Great news you have hogs there. The courtship consists of the male circling the female. She turns round and round, so she is always facing the front of him, and huffs as she goes. So if that is what you saw, then at the very least it sounds like a male and female. Although the courtship circling doesn’t always lead to anything, fingers crossed it did that time and for some hoglets later on.
