I am adopting three female texel piggies in 2 weeks, and before now, never realized that their hair grows VERY long!

I have no experience in longhaired pigs, so anything you could tell me will be very helpfull!
 
You need to brush them pretty much everyday. They need to be brushed gently, because texels have wavy hair. They need to be bathed more often, and they also need to have their hair trimmed. A little above floor length is preferable.

Good luck!
 
Thanks. The picture of them online has their hair cut short, and since i never knew what a texel piggy was, i figured their hair would stay that way.

here they are . . .!!!!

Yah !!!!! It Worked This Time!!!!
 
They are THE cutest little things! I rescued Apollo from Have-A-Heart too.
 
Awww, they are very cute! Good Luck!
 
Aww.. They are so cute I was going to adopt from Havaheart untill I fell in love with Dash.
 
I had a texel/merino, Chester, he died just recently - 1 hour before our vet appointment. He was such a lovely natured guinea pig. I kept his hair nice and short, with regular baths when he got damp.

...your new ladies are sooo pretty!!
