    As I write there are a pair of hogs courting in my garden. The female is halfway in/out of my feeding station whilst the male is patrolling outside and doing a fair bit of nuzzling as well as rubbing its head on the floor. The female doesn’t seem overly impressed though as she keeps giving him a biff every now & again but fingers crossed they will sort out their differences.

    I will have to leave them to it now – as we all know these things can go on for a very long time and its getting a bit late for me!

    However it does make a pleasant change from the hog fights that I mostly seem to have as I do seem to get a predominance of male hogs.

    Hi Hogmeister

    Yes, thanks, all o.k. here. Apart from the hogs being sadly marked, that is – they all look a terrible mess.

    On a more positive note, whilst I mostly seem to have males visiting at the moment, there is one female and like you I am hoping for the patter of hoglet feet. She certainly seems to have been trying her best!
