My kiddos still hump every now and then with occasional nipping but go back to normal shortly after. Your pair snuggle afterwards, which is a good sign so I wouldn’t be concerned at this stage. I would say chasing with nipping is more of a concern. Or if one of them looks frightened and hides in a corner.
Thor often grooms Crysta and then lies down so she can groom him back. Crysta will try and get grooming by sticking her head under Thor’s mouth… whenever. I think your pair are doing just fine.

Thank you for the reassurance! There has been no chasing whatsoever and the nipping (if it even was a nip, I’m not 100%) was only in response to the humping. Buttercup flopped right next to Peanut immediately when he stopped mounting her. And then he did the same so at least neither feels intimidated or afraid. Do you think I should try to encourage grooming or leave them to it?
