Castrated Boars

Just wondering if the appearance of an adult castrated boar is any different to an adult entire boar??

Do they have the large thick armoured skin and tusks or do they grow more "sow looking" if that makes sense?

Hi Dan, I believe they get the tusks, but not the armour.

Yes my castrates over 18 months old have tusks but not heavy armour like my boars.

Mine too! He has the tusks but no armour, although he can be a bit of a mummy's boy!!! :oops:
