Explanation:
Verraco is a boar (male pig used for breeding)and I believe that is what they are refering to -but I could be wrong of course, macho proba'o (probado)I guess could refer to a male that has proven himself (had children) or is a "ladies man" of sorts; braga'o (bragado) refers to the groin, and I have no idea what pato macho is supossed to convey unless it means "he" has many females in his "flock." -Good luck!
