Ruthie is a peruvian :) lol.

Theres mixes, too. :)
 
mixes are usually called brokens, i believe
 
Thanks those sites were great! But what is an Abbey?
 
an abby, which is short for abbysinian, is a pig with little rosettes or whorls all over their body. they usually have between 6 and 8 whorls.
 
oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh that is funny. I did not catch on at all. nickname okay.
 
There are two different kinds of abyssians. Satin and just abyssians. There are many different piggie breeds that have things like satin and other different terms.
 
well then Fifi is a red and white (red is the color of the cavy in my avatar right? besides black and white of course) abby, and she might be crested. She doesn't have a whorl on her head but her head hair sticks straight up. It is also rather funny because hair on her bum sticks up and so she looks like she has a perky little tail!
 
how old is Fifi?? The dont get all their whorls immediantly. My abby's hair sticks up too. by the way she sounds soo cute = )
 
I think she's around a year old. And she is adorable. She reminds me of a red and white pomeranian puppy/dog. Thats why her name is so fitting...she is like a little high class pooch.
