Hi Bernie

They certainly do have a lot of patience!

Here, one of the girls kept one of the big boys waiting for a good fifteen minutes whilst she was eating, with him circling at a respectful distance, before they disappeared into the undergrowth. He obviously knew how to impress the girls, because their courtship ‘dance’ didn’t last very long after that, just, hopefully, hoglets arriving soon. Perhaps the younger boy hogs need to learn from him about how to court a lady!

Dee, Sorry, I thought I had heard something similar before, but hadn’t registered it was a direct quote from you! Good luck with the rescue hogs.
