I've taken on some personal challenges this year, and am undertaking a journey that will take a lot of my energy for the next six months or so. For this reason, I've made the decision to reduce my responsibilities within the Cavy Stud as it's not fair to these little critters if I can't give them the basic care requirements they need.
We have had our last litter for 2013, and all breeding will be put on hold over the summer months.
This does mean that we have a few baby pedigree texels available for adoption though. These little guys were going to stay so I could assess coats and add them to the breeding program for 2014, but we've decided to find them new homes now while they're still young enough to be paired with new friends without the complication that comes from letting them go through puberty (especially the boys!).
You can view their listings here and here. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you think one of these guys would fit into your family.

Not a lot to report happening around here. Today is clean out day so all the pigs are set up in a complex network of grass runs with hidey houses and blankets for shade in our backyard while I pull out all the old bedding and add the new stuff. It looks like a tent city out there!
I did however take this quick pic of Tiiva's 4 babies at 1 week old last tuesday that I totally forgot to share. They're nearly 2 weeks old now and all have nice fat little bellies. They still spend 99% of their time either sitting on top of mum, or under her, so I think they might be late weaners.

Remember the 'Piggy Panties'!?
This was the first modeling shoot we did with Kobe. She looked so pretty.
We actually sold out of our first two batches of ruffle panties, so we've just finished a third batch. One of the new panties is being modeled by Kobe's daughter 'Chilli' below.
These are the available panties. There's a VERY Limited amount of each (most of them are one of a kind), so if you like one you'll need to act fast!
