Yes, I get rumbled at a lot. I've got 3 boars of my own, and Hobo is about the randiest little pig I've ever met, even having been neutered years ago.

Just goes to show that neutering has absolutely nothing to do with pig behavior!

Funny little things.

I really wanted to do a chronicle episode regarding the changes in our two naughty boars, but I've been way too busy to sit down and write creatively.

Long story short here - Romeo is finally standing up for himself. He stands up as tall as he can and yawns in George's face when George tries to get frisky with him. Romeo warns him to back off and surprisingly George listens. No one has new wounds and all of Romeo's old boo boos are healing well or healed completely.

I have thought all along that the tension and squabbles were caused more by my husband or I being in the room than the two young boars not liking each other. George really wasn't hand tame or used to people when we took him in. He'd get scared or upset when we got near the cage and take it out on poor Romeo. If he didn't know we were in the room with him he was fine, but as soon as he heard or saw us he'd chatter up a storm and act very upset.

Now crazy little George is accepting our presence. There is much less chatter (in fact it's stopped almost completely) and less running away in pure terror just because we entered the room. He even comes up to the grids and stands on the edge of the coroplast to see what is being passed out at veggie time and occasionally eating from our hands.

I am so glad I stuck with it and didn't let myself be a wimp when it came to trying to get these two boys to bond. I think it's going to work out just fine now and that's a plus because if they are bonded they will be adopted out together and always have each other.

I have reformed juvenile deliquent boars and am proud of it!

I was talking to my vet today when I took Jasper in for a quick health check and he said that some of the sex hormones are produced by the adrenals which could explain why just whipping off the testicles doesn't change the behaviour. Interesting.

I'm sure that statement goes for human men too Halva... :)

Ok, I must say that I've caught Rascal humping the heck out of poor baby Jetta. She just sits there and lets him do that. My first thought, "You little slut, you!" :) Now I think, "Run Jetta, run!" She's just a baby (around 6mons old) while he's just turned 2yrs old in May. I guess she likes older boys. :)

My other boy Patches doesn't hump his girls but he's older and they've whipped him into shape. Rascal doesn't seem to bother any of the other girls. Halo runs from him and hides while the older girls will tell him what's up!!

I only just found this thread: read it, laughed myself to death.

But Peking would like to tell his hair twin that you're supposed to be the one HUMPING, not the one being humped!

Henry prefers this arrangement, especially when it involves his boyfriend Oliver. ;)

Peking has questionable intentions about his buddy Duke, but he's in denial for now. I can't count how many times I've watched them chase each other around the cage. Prince just watches them and yawns..

You guys are craking me up. I'm new to GL and to this tread. I must add it.

I'm hoping to have a good turn out with towels tomorrow. I think I need to take my pigloo out. I'm a new mommy, and I just can't wait for my guys to get along.

Sigh. I walked by the foster cage last night and Kevin was apparently asleep and Roger was humping him. I suppose it's inevitable since it's ALL they do ALL the time. Sheesh, these guys are supposed to be 2 years old.

This thread is great it made me laugh so hard I can't believe I only just saw it.

Salana I love your pig tales they always make me feel better about my Marley's stinky butt problems. I always say to him well thank goodness you're not as bad Salana's Jackie. I think he's thinking....'Jackie sounds like a dude'.

As for the no testicle thing Kofi has none and he rumbles constantly, I mean all the time. His wives go mad at him and shoot pee in his direction a lot but it doesn't bother him, I think there's even a possibility he likes it, ew. The worst though is when people come to visit they always ask what is that pig doing?. Kofi 'rumble' butt and Marley 'stinky' butt my house wouldn't be the same without my gross little lads.

I think Jackie likes having a pee face, too. He's a big fan of butts and pee. I think he has a fetish.

Jackie will get quite the big ego if I tell him that another pig admires what he's done with his butt.

Jackie sounds like he would fit in great in my house. They could start their own Bad Boy Piggy Crew ;o)

This thread has been great - funny and helpful! I have two neutered boy pigs, Streak and Sparrowman. We got them from a pet store (I am a first-time cavy mom; did not know where to go!) when they were each a few weeks old. We got Sparrowman first, then, when I began to read this site, I went and got Streak. They got along fine from the start, went through neutering together and never had obvious problems until the last couple of days. They are both around 7-8 months old now, and they have been fighting - really fighting, with a bleeding scratch on Sparrowman and a nick on his nose. I broke them up twice when they became screaming balls of fluff. They each have their own cage now (approx. 2.5 X 3.5 ft), placed so that one wall abuts so that they have company.

I have been reading this thread to figure out how to help them get back together and I have some ideas for when Sparrowman heals up. But why did they suddenly cease to get along? They are well past puberty, they have always shared space and gotten along...I just don't get it! Thanks for any insights!
