Sqqqqqqqqqqqquuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuueeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee grin

Super-Mario Fan perhaps?
Lovely, boars are real people pigs, little love sponges.

Have a good scour through as many boar-related pages as you can, (and my daughters favourite website Barmy4Boars) .

They will want to have their evening cuddles when Dr Who is on, my boars never miss an episode.

Enjoy grin

Hi there, lovely to hear about the new arrivals, hope they settle in and become part of your family, - they will be very scared and nervous for a few days so give them lots of time, space and they will get used to you and your routine - fairly soon you will be inseparable!

Got them out today put cardboard box in hutch brought them out in that onto floor stroked them there
Very fiesty boars not keen on being held yet feel safe in box

AAh bless them, its all so new to them so they probably will be a bit feisty to begin with, cuddle cloths are very good to make them feel secure, just wrap them up snuggly on your lap and divert their attention with some lovely foodstuff, they will come to enjoy this time with you, gently being stroked whislt stuffing their faces. Marvellous!! smile

Give them time and plenty of parsley and they'll love being held. Despite being handled several times a day, my big, grown-up boars still don't like being picked up, but once held will snuggle in and enjoy it (SmoothPig) or constantly wander up and down all over whoever is holding him (ScruffyPig).

grin at 70's pigs watching Doctor Who. Ours watch Emmerdale religiously - ScruffyPig gets very cross with most of the characters and shouts abuse at the screen.

Ooh so lovely! How old are they?

I got 2 girls for Mothers Day (my dc know me well) in 2011, and after hamster deaths we got 2 more baby girls 8 weeks ago. Been carefull introducing in the run and now all 4 spend the day (when I'm in!) on the grass, wheee-ing and nibbling and generally pigging about!

Drives Mr Speedy MacReadie the rabbit almost insane! He wants in with them, even though he has the run of the totally enclosed garen!

Fernie BigPig is a Emmerdale addict too grin

He sits on the end of my knee silently for 30mins and then when the crediots come on he scuttles up my neck grin
