    Not Eating As Much Hay Beginning 5/7

    On Thursday, May 7, I opened a fresh new bag of hay (I use Oxbow's Timothy Hay/Orchard Grass Blend).

    My Boar Is Biting The Divider In His Cage?

    Hello! I have a very fiesty 4 year old boar, he won't stop biting the divider in his cage. He recently chipped a tooth pretty bad on the wire, and I'm scared that with him biting with little tooth, that he will damage his gums? Anybody have any idea how I can stop him from biting?
