Hi Puds

It sounds unlikely, to me, that a female would biff another hog that far. Do you have a night cam. If so, you can sometimes see, either from the side or when they scratch – the males have a blob, or sometimes with the older ones it almost looks like a fifth appendage (or perhaps I should say sixth, if you count the tail) – but situated mid-abdomen. If you locate a camera quite low it is often visible.

But, maybe you have even more than 3 visiting!

I’m assuming, by what you say that Florence/Herb is back home – good news.
