Hi Bellasmom

Welcome to the Forum! Well done for helping to spread the word. It’s a great help to the hogs even if people only link their gardens and provide water as you suggested. The more gardens that are linked the less roads they need to cross, too, which has to be an advantage.

That’s lovely that a hog has been using one of your hog houses, even if only for a temporary stay. One might nest there another time. The best thing to do to encourage them is to put a handful of suitable nesting material in there are leave a supply available fairly nearby. Medium sized leaves and long grasses are especially good for hibernation nests, but they normally like to build them themselves.

Good luck with the hogs. Hope they have a successful hibernation time.
