I just don´t think I´ve seen this before. I got a boar in from Animal control who is cream and white. Usually you see black skin under black hair, but he has patches of black skin under the cream hair and his ears are black. It´s really obvious right now because he has thin hair from mites and he´s an Abyssinian. This sounds stupid, but at first I thought he had a horrible bruise on his skin. Is this normal to have black skin under cream-colored hair?

It can be. The pigment on the skin is usually the same as on the hair, but not always. On broken color pigs, they can have dark skin in spots. so this pig is completely white and cream, with black ears? That is the only black on him?

Well, there´s a little wispy spot by his lip that looks more like a smudge of dirt or something than it looks like an official black patch.
