I did a big OOPS today.. I said “let’s go to the feed barn to buy the horse food.. and buy a guinea pig” AS a joke as I know they often have pigs.
Well.. I made the mistake of holding this cutie.. and ermm bringing her home..

Meet Lottie, she’s 3 months old ( let’s pray she’s not preggers!!) and I’m hoping that as she young my other pigs will accept her, unlike the failed bondings I’ve tried with older pigs. I’ll take things slow, for now she’s separate from the others and cannot see them. In a couple of days I’ll take down the visual barrier so they can all sniff, smell and talk though the grids and then in a week try them together on neutral ground.

No idea what breed, I’m guessing Abyssinian cross ?

Maybe a bit of Ridgeback in her? Beautiful colouring too
Good job you're in Oz :bal:.. Pignapping bag at the ready! ;)

Ps I prefer your shopping blunders to mine, I come back with an extra box of washing powder or chocolate as it was on offer! Lol! Xx

One of her ‘sisters‘ who was there had an almost perfect ridgeback so it’s likely she could have some in her!
