Thanks Annker x

I hate the fact that the hogs are getting run over – mine don’t tend to go towards the road, they come in from the large school grounds – however, I do appreciate they can cover large distances, so some of my hogs might be at risk of getting run over at some point.

I’m not as concerned about overfeeding them as much as I was last year – as, after seeing the amount of food the hog hospital and foster carer gives there hogs, what I give them is very small in comparison (it wouldn’t be if just one hog was eating all the food) – and there is always a bit of dried food left over, but never the dog food).

when I picked up walter from the foster carer a while ago, she put about half a can of wet dog food on a paper plate in with his release box – probably because they tend to go exploring on their first night of freedom, rather than stay around – so that might be why they are allowed such a big dinner on the first big night.
