    Roxie Roo

    Meet the newest member of my piggie herd! Her name is Roxie (AKA Roodle), she is four years old, she was rescued from the SPCA by a very nice family and lived with them pretty much her whole life but she has gotten nippy in her old age and is VERY loud, so she was given to me. She and Stella had a couple little tiffs, trying ot figure out who's dominant (I didn't just throw them together, it was very well supervised), but all has settled down now, they aren't all snuggling together yet, but they are peacefully living together now and I'm sure they will all be best friends soon. The SPCA told her previous owners that she is an abbysinian, but I am 99.9% sure she is a coronet, she has the one little cowlick on her forehead. I am thinking she is a silver agouti and white... Not completly sure though, would love some others opinions on it.
    Anyway, onto the pics!!!
    Introducing Roxie!!








    And group pics!!











    Note: Stella was not happy when these pics were taken, she was still mad at Roxie about the whole dominance thing, thats why she looks so annoyed in all the pics.

    Thanks! Yah, smooths and abbys are the most common, they are the ones usually found in petstores. And I was actually looking for a smooth! But Roxie was just too irresistable.

    looks coronet to me aswell, silver agouti bi-coloured.

    she is pretty, just watch that hair, not sure if you have had long haireds before but that hair will need daily brushing and a bum trim fairly often... you will see why!

    Before you ask, yes I am a b!tch...

    Hehe, the other two are peruvians! When they had hair I brushed it, now they have chewed it all off, I am guessing thats what will happen to her hair also. Its a shame, I love all the hair.

    I have a coronet myself, they are the most gorgeous piggies!
    Annoyingly, wiglet my coronet is a major pain to brush and cut, he just hates being groomed! I think Coronet's look the prettiest when they have just had a bath, so sweet and fluffy!! hehe
    What a lovely colour Roxie is, really like the long white hair!

    Lee, your widget sounds like a character! It seems that I wont have to worry about brushing and cutting, Stella and 'Burry have already started to chew it off. Sigh, I was looking forward to the brushing.

    Pigs can be really strange sometimes, barbering is one of the oddest behaviours I wish Bambi, my other piggy would start the habit though and trim wiggy's hair down a bit!
    www.Gorgeousguineas.com make some wonderful products for long haired pigs, you should check them out if you haven't already
