Definitely a trip to the vet. Looks like it could be an infection...

I agree - the vet is the best course of action in this case, so you're doing the right thing Hugs

Was he like that when you got him. If he was then the owner of the mother should have had him at the vet.

Erm, it's not all that clear from the pictures but that looks like the genitals to me, not the anus. In which case it looks quite normal.

I'd get the vet to have a look anyway.

I remember how red and swollen Rory's bits were when we got him.  And we had thought he was a she and 'she' was red from urine scald. 🤣Not like we had not had other bucks before.  We just took the word of the people we were rescuing him from.  I was quite surprised when I researched sexing lionheads.  Lionhead bucks can have very large boy bits!  And they can be very red!
