To Judith: Not a flame

Since it seems you have a legit caviary I have some questions, I used to run
a caviary where when the teddy breed began to be noticed. I was busy beefing
up and trying to help perfect the breed. Anyway I have since gotten out of
this and I kinda have stopped having pigs for awhile, it seems even after a
year you are no longer in touch with the new breeds and color patterns.
About 2 years ago I got back in to the Guinea Pig swing of things, Not in a
breeding facility but more or less a rescue home for wayward and unwanted
pigs. Some I actually buy from terrible petstore conditions, to taking local
humane society overflow and wayward (pregnant) mothers. I also keep track of
every piggie born here. I have only intentionally breed two sows in the 2
years since. I have kept both litters, They both had one or two pups with
colors I have not been able to classify or state because I have been out of
the circuit so long I am not sure I know what they are. Are you showing and
do you have extensive knowledge on this subject? If so I awit a reply so I
can describe them to you and maybe e-mail you a picture of them. Thanks I
hope you can help me. Martha

Hi Martha Jacobs,  No I am not an expert as I am only starting out.  I did
get myself two experts to be my mentors and help me get going.  If you would
care to email me privately I can put you in touch with them.  One is a cavy
judge (on occasion) and the other a cavy registrar (working towards becoming
a judge).  I will gladly put you in touch with them.

Thank you   Judith
