Hi guys it's me again with another question that if it wasn't piggy related I'd probably be locked up for asking haha. Basically I just cleaned my piggy out like usual- shook his fleece and removed hay and poos. I proceeded to give him his little stroke where he rolls over and reveals his belly and ummmmm man bits. They look normal and to me healthy (my first boar) they aren't red or swollen and I see no lumps or bumps that shouldn't be there. However, I did notice a white patch on one- didn't get a good look at other he hates me looking down there when I give him a checkover. It didn't seem to hurt him at all and he just moved away as he always does when I touch anywhere near his bottom- trust me Mo I only do it for you! I'm not overly worried but I'll keep my eye on it. It looks almost like his weed and just got some on it? Or layed in it and got a patch. Looks a little like it'd wash off if I tried. I'm not washing it just yet as I'm going to do his grease gland soon also and don't want to stress him out. He's also not in his usual place as my room is being painted where he usually resides so at the moment he's in another room which is a bit cooler then mine- not as in cold cold just cooler then upstairs. :)

I hope so. It doesn't look horrible - I looked through some other threads on poorly testicle and was shocked at what could happen eg bites and lumps. It just looks like a calcium deposit on his fleece I suppose bit on his testicker tho it feels kinda crusty but then dried calcium or urine would wouldn't it? I didn't feel a lump or anything under it and it looks healthy par that
