Another interesting fact... Kramer was from a pet store. Both his parents were Smooth Shorthaired Americans. His brother and sisters were all smooth haired. I think they were trying to breed Dutch colored pigs because they were all like that.
CocoBean is a tortoiseshell.

Tammy's Betty should be a Tortoiseshell and White, not a Broken as I thought from that original pic.
I think I decided Heddwyn was Cream? I guess I'd better round up some other color people.

I've got to get up early tomorrow for work and need my beauty sleep. I may not get back to the board until tomorrow night--depends on how my day goes. The day after a holiday with the part-time vet can definitely be asking for trouble!

Josephine, would you like photos of an Aby from a top view?
Ben a Harlequinn
Billy Red brown agouti with white stripe
Bobby, silver grey agouti
Sooty I've not got a clue
Updated photo of all three

And finally a side view of all three
Top Finn, middle Patch, bottom Sooty. You can see Sooty's markings a lot better.
I had a hard job finding the Billy/Bobby images, I loved these little fellas. By the way, Bobby was pretty huge for a guinea pig.
I hope these images helped.
Tammy, that pic is too small, I think. I'm thinking now that maybe we can just point out in text that there is black in the coat.
Josephine, should you wish to have any line edited, just copy the line here and below it the text to be replaced (it will be easier for me to find if I can mindlessly do a search).

This is a top view of rosettes on an Abyssinian.
(I hope that is roaning and not grizzling? Otherwise, she's a B/C Golden Agouti, White, and whatever else I can't see.)
