    Introducing myself and our new piggies

    Hello!

    My name is Alice and I'm officially "two guinea pigs past normal".
    Seriously though. I have three young human children whom I homeschool,
    I run my own business, and I care for a farm full of Nigerian Dwarf Goats, we have two house dogs and numerous barn cats. And now we've added little Donut and Popcorn the piggies (credit goes to my 7 and 4 year olds for the names ). Yep. I have a lot on my plate!
    Just load me onto the crazy train.

    Were not first time piggy owners. Our first GP passed away in October 2015. But we are doing things a bit differently this time (we got a pair of females so they wouldn't be lonely, for starters).

    Donut is the black and white and Popcorn is the brown one. Click image for larger version.

    Hello Alice and welcome to the forum. You are definitely a very busy lady. I admire that you do all that and still homeschool your children. Kudos to you!

    Your pigs are gorgeous. If you lived near me I'd be tempted to pignap Donut. I wish you and your family many long and happy years with your new babies.

    Hello Alice and welcome to the forum!

    And I'll third that motion. If you were near where I live I'd "pigsit" for you any time

    Popcorn looks a lot like Shiemi, my guinea pig. Little less light fur. I want a black and white but scared that Shiemi doesn't want a roomie. She's pretty dominant. Does Popcorn popcorn a lot? Is that how she got her name? They are o cute. Wow, you live in a little farm.

    Actually, my daughter has now decided her name should be Gumball. She had 3 or 4 names yesterday, but we've settled now on Gumball.
    They haven't started popcorning yet, they're still pretty nervous.
