Hi Yvonne

I wasn’t sure if you meant you’ve caught them already or you still have to catch them. But either way, don’t worry too much, it’s better that they get checked over to make sure they’re o.k. They’ll probably forget all about it once they’re back home again. Don’t worry about graphic descriptions of hog poo. It’s quite normal on here!

Youngsters do tend to like eating together and sharing bowls. It’s possible they have decided not to hibernate. That does occasionally happen with hoglets. I have had them here (although only one at a time) and both of them continued to visit all winter except for a few days when snow was too deep for them. But including when there were hard frosts. The problem is trying to make sure there is some unfrozen water for them, in that weather.

I hope the two little ones are o.k. and that they can soon return home.
