    Introduction of myself & piggies :)

    Hello there!

    I'm new here to this forum My name is Rachel and I have 2 female piggies named Toffee and Ginger. Toffee is an Abyssinian piggy while Ginger is a Sheba Mini Yak. They are about 4 months old now and I've had them for around 2 months now.

    On the left is Toffee, on the right is Ginger.

    And as you can see, Toffee is much bigger than Ginger even though they're siblings! She's the dominant piggy.


    I hope we have a good time here on the forum!

    Cheers!

    Welcome! You said they're siblings? Are you sure they're not both Abby's? Or one might just be a long haired?

    Also you have adorable piggies!

    Haha! Thank you I'm pretty sure they're sort of siblings because they were in the same litter when I picked them up.
    The vet told me one was an Abby and one was a Sheba Mini Yak though! But now I'm getting confused myself.

    I didn't even know what a Sheba mini yak was . Thanks for Google. Do you have photo of them both from the top? Like an overview kinda?

    As far as I am aware sheba mini yak are an Australian only breed. My boy Theodore is apparently a sheba according to the previous owner who said she got him from a show breeder. Here are some pics of him not long after a hair cut on his behind.
