Update! So.. turns out ‘Florence’ isn’t a Florence after all.. ( but I’m struggling to come up with a male equivalent other than ‘Herb’ (( chosen by my daughter! Short for Herbie.. renowned for getting around on less than all four wheels, I guess..?! )) LOL!

After a week at Hogpital under the fantastic expert care of an amazing team – having been given the full MOT & a course of antibiotics, HE was given a clean bill of health yesterday, ready to be returned to his regular patch..

Full actioned packed overnight footage shows one healthy Hog back at the Diner, happily exploring & with barely the merest hint of a limp – leg looking normal again..

..but also showed the ‘Welcome Home’ he got from, I’m presuming, the actual resident Female.. who, on sight, promptly ‘biffed’ the poor fella from one end of the ‘park’ & back again in double quick time..!!! No more worse for wear, he shakes off the leaves & hay & gets back to doing what these fab little creatures do best! Happy Days!! : )
