    Just keep an eye on the situation for the next few months! Offer lots of space, hidey, food bowl and water bottle well spaced apart (at least a bit more than body length) to prevent possessiveness (see our boar guide). Make sure that you have an emergency pen in case things suddenly blow up.
    Unfortunately, baby boar trios are extremely prone to outsider situations (fights or bullying), so keep weighing all your boys once weekly and have a plan B. you have to take it from there. The hormones hit in spikes.
