Haven’t been sleeping much if at all so going to sleep this afternoon, Bruno was jumping on and chasing ozzy excessively for over an hour and it was getting to be too much for both me and ozzy. So I went ahead and put the divider up and let them cool off. Is this ok to do? They’re now rumbling at each other through the bars lol

Yes, give them two days for the hormone spike to die down and tempers to cool. Then reintroduce on neutral territory. If the bond is stable, they will simply go back together as if nothing untoward had ever happened. Adult boars can still suffer from the odd strong hormone spike, including neutered boars.
