Quite interesting. I would watch for other signs. gl/ovarian_cysts.html I think sometimes there are not so much cysts and severe hormonal imbalances that can cause loss of hair. There are other things that can cause hair loss but you were right to suspect ovarian cysts.

There is a tiny bit of redness around the edge of the patch -- not flaky, and not blistery, so it didn't look fungal. But it did look like pulling or nibbling was involved maybe.

Does she hang out with anyone other than Snickers? She's apparently standing/lying and letting whoever do it otherwise another of your pigs would have wounds.

I mean, the cage isn't *that* big; there's probably always another pig in the general area. I think it was Cookie, actually. She has been full of rumblepee this week and is generally acting grumpy.

Not-My-Herd News, but sharing because babies are always a miracle and fun!

Mid-June, poor SlaveToFuzzy received a nine-pig surrender. There was a mama (Lola) and her recent litter, and another litter from another mama who stayed with the owners. In total, 3 baby females and 5 baby males, plus mama.

STF did the only reasonable thing and added one of the babies to her herd to bond with her amazing sweetie Louis.

But that wasn't the end of the news. Mama, of course, following the laws of these sorts of things, was pregnant. She must have gotten knocked up precisely one hot minute after giving birth to the last litter, too. And it has been a LONG month for all of us watching her head get smaller and smaller!

Here she is LAST WEEK.
Image

Then last night, she suddenly popped out SIX little fluffballs of amazingness, including one runt and one GIANT.
Image

It does seem like there's lots of interest in the newborns, again in the way of these things, so I think they've all been spoken for already. If I had a vacancy I'd snap up mama Lola...

Isn't your cage technically big enough for 5? Just sayin'. ;)

No wonder her head got so tiny.

(sigh) I remember when my Fuzz was this tiny. Now she's fast catching up with the smaller of my 2 males!

These are the cutest little guys (and gals)! So little their ears look huge, lol.

Congrats to the happy family. Glad the delivery went well. The giant does look like a pretty large pup so thank goodness Lola is well. I hope the runt is doing well too, as are everyone else. keep chomping little ones.

My cat would eat my face if I tried to participate in the #TrumpYourCat meme.

But I do have a sociable male pig who will participate in a lot of stupid stuff if the rewards are right.

Oh, squee! Your whole herd and a giant carrot! Cici's face is so angelic in the first pic, and Snick looks quite dapper.

I saw that carrot yesterday at the farmers' market and thought "Yes, we will have that carrot." It was the very largest of a whole bunch of large ones.

After the photoshoot, I threw it into the cage for nibbles. Then I forgot about it.

By bedtime, it was about 1/3 smaller. It's still massive, but they made a good dent. More importantly, by bedtime, nobody was gnawing on it any more. They were all passed out in various parts of the cage, burping carrot-burps.

Just sayin', Ashley has enough fur to do her own Trump. Flip that tail up 'round her head! ;-) Then run!

I see no more evidence of pig babies. Whatever happened to the ginormous litter you posted about last month? Did the little runty one make it? So very tiny compared to the rest!

Also, HI SNICKERS!
