    He is scabbed over pretty good, but the bottom one still kinda worries me a, right above the bottom one there is a hard knot under his skin. His incisions are closed up but still scabbed over. The day after tomorrow (Friday, the 13th) will be two weeks since he was castrated. He is doing really good, and I really want to let him out of his pen so he can be free in my pasture and yard, but I worry about him getting in our pond, which he poops in, I might add! Plus we have ducks and geese that poop in it too, so it isn't the cleanest pond around.

    What do you think??
