Unfortunately the pale patches on her nose didn’t show up very well when she finally left her release box – seen through binoculars. She and Aceus – that was a bit of a joke name, but has stuck- still creep around low to the ground. Very good at avoiding the night cams. Her face was still slightly shortened when the photo was taken – she had only just unrolled. She has, though got a very pale skirt, which is another useful id. aid. I find the hoglets do tend to start looking a bit different as they grow so the ‘mug shots’ have to be revisited. I don’t find photos all that helpful with id’ing them – you can get much more detail on, if you do a sketch, even if, like me, you are not much of an artist!
Beware of the scarred nose. I used to have a big boy hog visitor called Barenose. Not only did other boys turn up with bare noses as well, but his healed over. By then he was Barenose and Barenose he remained, even when he no longer had a bare nose!
