    I have two 3 month old Nigerian Dwarf wethered brothers one of which makes a crazy sound.Whenever I pet Jax he sometimes makes a blowing sound kinda like when you blow raspberries at first I thought he sneezed but it's more of a blowing but not quit spiting sound.Why does he do this ?

    Goats will snort when frightened or alerted, otherwise uncastrated males will also snort a lot, hopefully he was fixed properly and isn't still intact.

    Sometimes a testicle can shoot up into the abdomen and doesn't get in the band, hopefully that's not the case, I wouldn't worry unless he starts smelling buckish, otherwise I think he's probably a bit frightened.
