Hi ElCid

It’s possible that one or both hogs have been in hog care during the winter – where they are sometimes kept together. It’s also possible the small one is the larger one’s hoglet who is being a bit slow at ‘going it alone’. There’s no real way of knowing. But in general completely wild hogs are solitary animals except during courtship and when they have hoglets. Usually in these sort of cases one or other eventually moves on so that they have a sleeping place each.

Re. Captcha. Yes I know it can be annoying. Sometimes it seems endless but other times it lets you through with nothing to solve at all. The good thing is that hopefully it stops there being even more spam posts appearing – those can be very annoying, too! Pre-Captcha there have been times when every topic has been filled with lots of spam posts with text in foreign languages – pages of them – which effectively stopped the forum operating as it should until it was sorted out. So, please don’t be put off returning – fingers crossed you don’t need quite so many clicks next time. But Captcha does have an important purpose.
