    Welcome to the forum. What a beautiful name you've chosen for her. Is she a short-haired piggy or long-haired piggy?

    Thank you! Sheís in between. We got her from a pet store, but they didnít know what kind she was so we donít really know for sure. We have been looking online to find out but we still donít know. As soon as I can figure out how to put a picture up maybe someone here will know.

    Welcome to the world of guinea pigs!!
    bpatters link will tell you everything you need to know. This site also helped me as a new piggy owner: www.guineapigmanual.com
    And I've started a thread here about discovering your piggy's breed/colors/patterns: https://www.guineapigcages.com/forum...colors-pattern I'd love to try and figure out her breed if you post her picture!

    pictures! If it still didn't work for you, here's how... You know the little icons across the top of the reply box where you type? Third from the right is one that looks like a picture of a tree. Click on it, and you'll get the option to choose or upload file. Click choose file, select your picture, then hit upload file. It should be attached to your post then and you can post it. You'll only see a code and not the photo itself until after it's posted. Hopefully this helps and it's not different for you than me!


    Can a moderator please remove the pic? I posted a screenshot from an article I was reading to make sure I was remembering steps right, and now I can't remove it. I'm sorry!

    Edited by bpatters: Actually, I can't remove the picture. When I edit the post, I don't see it anywhere, or any reference to it, or any place to delete it. Sorry!

    Edited by CavyMama: I took a look and I believe I was able to remove the pic in question.

    Yay! Thank you! That was a lot easier than I thought it would be. There she is. Our little Romona!

    Romona is quite a little beauty. She has such pretty coloring. I'm definitely not very knowledgeable about guinea pig breeds but from the little rosette I can see she might be an Abyssinian mix.

    She's so adorable!!! She definitely looks like an Abyssinian or Abyssinian mix ( possibly Ridgeback but I think Aby is more likely ). Her colors look like they're Red and Black, and her pattern Brindle--- so pretty! More pictures would always be welcome

    Edited again by bpatters: @CavyMama, how did you do that?

    Edited again by CavyMama: @bpatters It's magic! ::wink::


    Thanks! It's gone now. No big deal, just didn't want to spam anyone with a random screenshot from a Sphinx cat article I had used it to make sure I was explaining how to attach pics correctly, and removed it before posting, but it popped up anyway. Like bpatters I couldn't find it to delete it.
