I was cuddling Harry and then my mum wanted to so we swapped and i took Zubin almost immediatly he sniffed where harry had been and began to rumble so i lifted him gently to the cusion when he went CRAZY and flew at me he bit my cheek and nose and arm as he landed! could this be jealousy, territorial or that hes not well I'm so confused hes usually so dosile luckily theres not blood just bruisin looks like ive had a fight got a large bruise on my cheek and under my nose nad my arm has a slight scratch cant belive it its Definatly vets in the mornin i really am worried he did perk up a bit after free ranging and eatin grass but its not like him are boars usually this aggressive! Neutering and females is on the cards at the moment i no i wont affect his behaviour but i want them to have companions that will be ok with them no fighting. Anyone else had a experience like this!

no experience of that lovey, maybe he is really jealous? Might be worth holding him first, cos then he would leave his scent on you.. He probably smelt Harry and thought 'this is MY mummy, that'll teach her!'?

He could have bitten because he is in pain somewhere - that might explain why he has been looking unwell. Please get him checked out asap.

It could also be jealousy but I wouldn'texpet such a strong reaction from a normally placid pig.

Try putting some arnica cream on the bite marks - will clear themmuch quicker.

Good luck to you and Zubin at the vets. Perhaps he got frightened whan he banged his head, and now he is afraid the same thing will happen again.

No, you didn't cut them wrong lovey.. you have to just keep trimming them regularly.. Ton has flat feet -always has, that's why his curl, they are the shortest possible.. :)

Glad Zubin is ok my lovey.. I used to put in a cuddly toy for Ton when we lost Jin, and Ton would cuddle up to it.. Might be worth doing the same?

A flat footed piggy? Why does that affect his nails and their length?

as his feet are flat, his nails curl in the gaps between his toes - his nails have turned around slighty.. The wicks in his nails are long, so it always looks like he has long nails..

I'll take a piccie when he wakes up! Might make more sense to see it
