    Mounting And Humping

No noticeable hair loss, but she is a sheltie. I took her to...

    Humping

    2 weeks ago, I got a 10 week old boar to go with my nearly 1 year old boar. They were fine until just this evening, my older male has starting humping the littler one a quite a bit. It's been about 5 minutes none stop and my littest is being very vocal. Do I just wait for it to pass?
