Hi all, just looking for a bit of advise regarding my hobs; I've had them about 5 years and they've lived together all the time I've had them and apparently all their lives with no bother. This year i decided to buy in a pair of jills as the hobs are getting on now, especially the sandy who seems to have failed to get his winter coat this year. This makes me think that he won't be with us much longer, and wanted to get some kits out of him this coming spring as he's an excellent worker, what do you guys think, is he too old? We've predicted him to be about 7 or 8 years old, do you think he'll be up to scratch?
Also, if i breed from him will i be able to house him back with my other hob or will they fight do you think? Bearing in mind that my sandy hob is quite small and my other one is relatively large? Like i say they've both lived in harmony all their lives with no problems, however theres never been any jills around before now. What do you guys reckon?
Thanks in advance, Jack
