Hi Dan,

As I re-read my post, I could see where it seemed like I was calling you out specifically. However, it wasn't you I was engaging. In your response, you stated your opinion, which, while not really 100% accurate, did have merit. The folks I was calling out are all of those who could have responded to your post and furthered a valuable thread by countering with points that would have led to a good discussion (which all of these forums sadly lack). I have read what you stated in your response for decades, but hands-on experience has proven that spontaneous ovulation in the presence of a male is not really how it works. Can a male influence a female's cycle, heck yeah. This is where I was hoping it would go, but this forum, like many, has become more of a bum-patting "at-a-boy" type of environment where serious discussion about husbandry doesn't get attention.

I know I am an outsider to this forum, but I have kept hogs in many circumstances for many years, but I get sick of just looking at pics of morphs. I have been down that road with kings, then burms, and balls and it is all the same deal to me: a slightly different paint job on the same awesome, infinitely conversational vehicle. We could discuss its fuel consumption, its speed, or handling, but all anyone wants to talk about is the paint job.

Anyway, I didn't mean to focus on your response to the original post and I'm sorry that it seemed that way.

Will
