Hi MsC

That’s good news that the marks are wearing off. In that respect all the rain we’ve been having recently probably helped! If it’s come off that quickly, you might be lucky and the patches could be where the hog has been rolled by another in some mud – it can show up as pale on night cameras. But alternatively it might have been water based paint. Whatever it was, I always think the hogs are at their most beautiful and more natural looking with clean spines, so it’s good that the patch is wearing off. Fingers crossed the hog remains unblemished. Good luck.
