Sheps Hoggies thread

Hi everyone...rather than post my Hoggie videos in different threads I have made this one to group them all together.

Since my last video I now have a second Hoggie coming to the garden, this one is smaller, so I'm guessing it could be one of this years young, it is a very clumsy little spud as you will see in the below video, it takes a right tumble and then runs into the greenhouse, I think it is still finding its way around the garden, but I think it will be OK.

    Aw bless! Could you put a brick or something so that he/she has more of a step to get down in a less spectacular fashion?!

    Happy, healthy hoggies, Shep.  Lovely to watch them.

    Thanks very much ladies image

    Great minds think alike, Anni...I put 2 bricks there last evening, hoping that once the young un finds them it will use them as a step up / step down.


    In last nights video ( see below ) the little Hoggie looks like it's about to use the bricks, but a Mexican Stand Off breaks out as the big Hoggie senses he is not alone and he gives an aggressive snort and little Hoggie runs for cover.

    Love the way he hides behind the foliage ! "Is it safe to come out yet?" image

    great videos, the hog taking a tumble reminded me that I have a raised bed like that at the back of the garden.  I'll need to rig up a wee ramp or step just in case.  Keep up the good work Sheps.
