Josephine, if you would like any help from me (on the roan/dal page maybe) just email me.

We could see what pics we can solicit from members. Maybe make a sticky with the varieties you want. If you do one page at a time, you could list everything you want for that page. For example, the roan/dal page might include something like this:

ROAN:

Golden Agouti

Silver Agouti

Black

Red

TSW
etc etc

DALMATIAN:

Black

Chocolate
etc. etc.

MAGPIE:

(explaining how they're not really roans)

COVERT ROANS & DALS:

(any non-obvious roans who have popped out lethals)

LETHALS:

(any informative pics of lethals: lethals with red eyes, dark eyes, small eyes, deformed eyes, missing eyes, eyes flashing silver from the flash; tooth pics; etc.)


Then you could request people email you a link to their pic, with a subject of "Chocolate Dalmatian" or whatever so you can sort and pick through. People who want to help but don't know what their pig is would be encouraged to post in the thread where E tells them what kind of pig they have.

Josephine, I would love to help in any way. I can upload pictures if you write up the thread. That is no problem. If you can tell me when you have some to post and or if you want me to get from some specific place, I can do that.

Thanks guys. Salana, that would be great if you wanted to headline the roan and dal page. I'm sure you have some great pics of Einy that we should use!
Dgarriques, I would definitely appreciate any help. I'm just not sure until I get started what exact form it will take. I'm just putting down thoughts right now in the reference forum.

I do not have the expertise like most of you but I can help with gathering info and loading pictures for you. Just let me know and I will do what I can. It is WONDERFUL of you to share so much knowledge.

I saw on the other thread (which I dont want to add questions) but E can you tell me what a "Blue" is?

There is a blue roan, which is really a black roan, and also a slate blue. I think it was a variety developped in England (or was it Australia?), but I'm not sure what you mean by a blue.

Oh and which 'other thread'?

This is the new threa Josaphine started for reference (thus why I didnt want to clog it up with questions). You will see where she mentioned BLUE.

Oh, E, by "Tan", I'm referring to the Black and Tan if you read the first page of the thread. The Marten gene.

I think Blue was taken out of the most recent ACBA standard book (one is published every 4-5 years) since it was so uncommonly shown in the US. That just shows you that my info is older. I was trained about 15 years ago when I was showing.

So a Blue would be what sort of color? Like a grey kind of?

Oh, I think I'm done for tonight. Will be home tomorrow and will check this thread for any suggestions/changes.

I guess I'll need some breed pics, although I won't get any of the rarer breeds, I'm sure.

Thank goodness they don't recognize the skinnies and show them. Momma would be in jail ;)

The most efficient way to do this is to have pics hosted here. Then they will not disappear. Name your pic in lowercase by the coat name (this will help) if you want to contribute one.

Jo-
I know you were refering to the Tan & Black. I meant yelling at the people who insist they have a 'tan' pig when, in fact, it's red or cream or beige or lilac or a million other things.

Oh. I wasn't sure if it was that or not. It's so hard to tell over this darn computer!

We need a good picture or two of each of the following so we can add it to Josephines thread on the different guinea pig coats.

Here is a list to start off with (do not post pictures except on this thread) and please only submit a link if possible
so it wont take up too much room and Lynx won't get upset with us. Also because I do not know, when you post a picture or link please say which of the below the picture should be in.

I ask people who know for sure to post as that way we wont get too many. We need pictures as a reference to go with Jo's descriptions to make up the reference link she is doing.



Abyssinian
Abyssinian Satin
American (also known as English in some countries)
American Satin
Coronet
Peruvian
Peruvian Satin
Silkie (also known as Sheltie in some countries)
Silkie Satin
Teddy
Teddy Satin
Texel
White Crested

I have several photo's which if you give me time to find in my picture archives, my parent's once owned a Magpie (manchester harlequinn), red/brown/black Agouti and a Silver/grey Agouti. I personally own a TSW, 1 lilac thingy and Sooty, I'm not sure of his breed markings to be honest. just give me a day or so and I'll come back to this thread.
