    New Pal For Bereaved Boar?

    I lost one of my two neutered boars last weekend to bloat. I had struggled to bond the pair after I'd got the younger one from RSPCA at around 1.5 yrs old following the loss of Clive's brother earlier in the year. They lived side by side as if left on their own they fought, drawing blood on 1...
