    Ok I posted before about little sores (looked like irritated areas) on my bucklings testicles. The irritation is gone (after keeping them coated with Corona for a week or so) but there is hair loss on them. Is it because they hit his back legs? (LOL!!) Do most bucks have hair loss here? We are expecting to take him to his first show in June--will this hair loss hurt judging?

    Those are big...HeHe... :laugh:

    No... I have never had my boers lose hair there... it is usually on the bottom area.... Maybe the stuff you used burn his hair off....not sure though....

    as to the show....they may see it as something wrong with him and may frown on it... not sure....

    I know ...not much help .... :hug:

    HOLY B....s - BAHAHAHAHHA!!! More than likely the hair loss was due to the irritant - give it time, I would think it would grow back eventually.

    I may suggest some Aloe Vera gel...the kind for sunburn irritation...It won't hurt and may even help at this point....and though the pic is big...I'm assuming this is a buckling? I only ask because my pygmy buck has a set my DH is jealous of :ROFL:

    Sorry/ maybe a bit TMI there :wink: ...but I've never seen the hair loss on my boys that high..it's normally the bottom of the sac that has the bald shiny spots and is worse in winter.

    Once you do get chance to put the gel on him, don't be too surprised if he actually lets you without a fuss, I've found that my boys are more willing to have that area attended to than my milkers like their udders touched at times.

    Oh for Goodness sakes! Am I the only one who didn't think a thing of the size of the pic until everyone commented? Didn't need any reading glasses to get a good look! hehehehe And Liz, it's not only the s-i-z-e that's amazing, but with my guys they're usually in a contrasting color! Better to see 'em with, my dear!

    I would say its from an irritation from whatever he had mixed with them rubbing/swinging around between his legs. My BUCK (not me LOL) usually has the little crusty/ hair loss on the bottom of his sac. But then again I don't normally pay attention to it. I guess I should go check and make sure he is all good in that department.

    Got it--aloe vera gel I will get some and use that!

    Well not to gloat on him but his yooohooos are HUGE! He is 5 months and they are AT LEAST 4 inches long-each testicle-not just the sac!! So I thought maybe he was wearing off the hair from how they swing against his legs!!!! :laugh:

    Gross hu??? But he was purchased to be my herdsire so I guess I should be happy :shocked:

    Could this photo be considered invasion of privacy? hehe :) My brother would call it....Goat Porn....LOL You should see his comments when I put pics up on the net of my girls rear ends when they are preggo..heh...

    Looks like irritation to me too. Possibly to whatever you put on there, or well who knows, silly goats get into so much trouble as it is! I'm going along with Liz on this one with the aloe vera, that stuff is heavensent for irritated skin! :)
