I would definitely keep up the feeding while you’re away. While it is supplementary they do come to rely on it as you’ve noticed. This is also the start of the hog juvenile season where late born hoglets are trying to fatten up in order to survive hibernation so any help you can give is good.
It’s also a great way to encourage them to stay around a safe area.
You never know you may end up converting your friend into a hog friend!
Have a nice hols
