    Wierd patch on Charlies nose

    So I was doing my evening check of all my pigs and found a wierd patch on Charlies (my boar) nose. It looks like there's something sticky at the tip of it causing the tiny hairs to stick together. He isn't scratching and is in no apparent pain as he let's me touch it, but I'm still worried.

    What can it be? Maybe celary juice? Or something bad?

    Please help???

    Is it hard and crusty? Clear or whitish? If so, it's probably "boar glue" (dried guinea pig semen). He may have been vigorously cleaning his private parts and not so vigorously washing his face afterwards, or if he has an intact male cagemate, his cagemate may have decided to hump his face for a change.

    Perhaps it's sow mucus plug? When sows go into heat the mucus plug blocking the uterus loosens and falls out. If he had his nose up her butt it could have gotten smeared.
