    I didn't know that. Just to be awkward, it looks like she has both straight and some 'crimped' looking ones!

    She's made massive progress since I posted not too many hours ago. I've lifted her from the cage and she sat on the settee next to o/h whilst I cleaned her cage. She even started to eat some hay whilst sat with o/h. She had a fleece as a tent to hide in which she liked.

    When I took her back to the cage and put her in, instead of freezing in the same place for over an hour like yesterday she actually went straight into the box next to the divide and looked for Mollie. Mollie came straight there and they've now said hello Lily did a little rumble strutting for a couple of seconds but mainly they just touched noses. They then settled there and have been grazing together, had their leafy food and slept close by each other Mollie is so excited bless her

    Lily seems much more secure now she's right near Mollie so some lovely positive signs so far

    She's so cute and fuzzy

    So shy though. But I've been concerned that she hasn't used her bottle yet so I decided to offer her water by syringe just to see how she responded and at first i just dipped the end in water and she licked the drops, then I moved to putting a tiny bit in and she let me syringe it so I'm so pleased. She only did it a few times but I feel better knowing she's at least had a tiny bit of water alongside what she gets from her veggies

    Hopefully more photos at some stage. I'm rubbish at photos but o/h always takes good ones! He wasn't even properly looking in the carrier when he took those two and they're really good!

    Lily is moving around the cage now, using her bottle and she has even been 'talking'

    U/d

    Still keeping an eye out for a neutered boar now! Age isn't too important from what I've heard but in terms of energy levels, maybe 3-4yrs ish would be good.

    Waiting on an email from Honeybunnies in Leicester who have some neutered boars in but need to wait for details of ages etc then hopefully I can arrange transport!
