What on earth could this be?

Someone once posted here that the aviation industry should look into boar glue to replace bolts on planes. That's how strong that stuff is. I've had to cut that stuff out of many a piggie's behind.

Good luck as you enter the world of boars. It is a bit different (*giggles*). I've had all boys (with one or two girls over the years). I've only once had a neutered couple. Most of the time I've had cages of boys.

Just know they tend to need more space, in every possible way.

Boar glue, I have seen it many times from my very nasty dominate boar who is finally neutered and now living with 4 sows and whipped into place. Please do not try to pull off if on the pig's hair, it will rip out hunks of it. Only try if plugging the nose, yes that happens. Their saliva happens to break it down really well. And just so you know, they can get it on their own mouth.

I was transferring my boys to do a cage clean and found this weird gunk in the hair on the back of the one of them. I puzzled over it for a few minutes. It made me think of wax. Stubborn, impossible to remove wax. I ended up having to cut it out. He had a nice bald spot on his back for a while.
It was my husband that suggested it was... fluids from the other pig (who actually did hump that one ALL the time).

Thankfully that's the only time that happened!

Yes, it sounds like boar semen (also called "boar glue").

Years ago Talishan wrote a haiku about it: http://www.guinealynx.info/forums/viewtopic.php?p=786467&highlight=glue#786467

Should I tell her about boarfume? Small Head Disease?
