Penny, it sounds like you had a paler prickled hog, even blonde. We have found that even the regular brown prickles have different shades between hogs. One that visits has incredibly dark spines, nearly black.

Three and possibly a forth one that has visited recently looked heavily pregnant to us. I do hope they are not pregnant as it’s really late in the season now for their little ones to gain weight for their hibernation.
