    @Freddy777 - Your photo did not show up. Instead, it was a VERY long (maybe 200 lines) jumble of letters and numbers. In order to post your photo:

    1. Make sure it is saved with a name you will recognize, to your computer.
    2. Click on the icon above the text box that looks like a tree inside a window
    3. Search for the name of your photo on your computer
    4. Click on it and it should show up in the text box

    Cute pig!

    Most pigs are mixtures. He looks like a mostly American Short Hair with maybe a little bit of Abyssinian in him.

    But what he looks to be is a roan pig, as evidenced by the white hairs interspersed with the dark hairs on his butt. If so, he may be a carrier of a gene that causes severe birth defects, so it is extremely important never to allow him to breed.

    No he isn't sick, and he will live a normal life just like any other guinea pig. It just mean that if he had babies the babies could be sick. It doesn't affect his health in any way, just don't breed from him.
