That was a awesome way to kick off the festivities of the night! Hooray for safe travels.
Abby has a rooster tail! I love that last picture of her, she looks like she's about ready to charge. Josie peering over "better bring the veggies or no mercy for you."

These girls are so adorable! Halo is the most skittish of the girls but I'm sure she'll come around. Jetta has been "visiting" w/ some of the herd next door. Abbey is SO freakin soft. And Josie, I just love her hair. We weighed everyone tonight and surprisingly Josie weighs the same as Jetta & Halo. I guess w/ all that fur she just looks bigger.

I've taken some more pics but I have a question. When we were weighing everyone and combing/brushing them, I noticed that poor Josie has an ear tag. I know I've read somewhere that it can be removed but I don't remember how. Should I have a vet remove it or can I? Thanks for letting me know.

And now here are a few pictures of the girls.

I think I'd have a vet remove it for fear of ripping their ear if they squirm or unsteady hand.

Jenn your newbies are very cute! I am happy for you.

I also would have the vet remove the ear tag.

Hello Jetta! I just love her ears. :)

You can take that ear tag out on your own if the pig does not squirm. My vet showed me how to do it. You need to get your fingernails on the top and bottom of the tag and gently pry it apart. I was able to take some of the tags off, but some of them had to go to the vet so I didnt hurt their ears. If the pig squirms, take 'em to the vet.

How cute are they! Are they starting to settle into their new surroundings?

I love Halo's chocolate "smudge." :}

I'm with Feylin. Take a good, long look and maybe some diagonal cutters. If you're confident it'll be easy to remove, give it a try. Otherwise, the vet is always around.

Aw, they're beautiful. I just love Halo. Her little smudged nose is so cute. I like the picture of Josie under the Weaver cozy.

They sure are lucky girls.

Ms Jetta's going to be a bit spoiled. I've caught my 10yr old daughter taking her upstairs to her room. She says that Jetta will fall asleep on her lap. Awww!

Jenn, is this 19 piggies now? I am beginning to lose count :) Between you and Kermie, I can't keep everyone straight. Not even mentioning my own herd--lol.

I officially have 18 plus Hunny, the summertime classroom piggie who's visiting. And unless I find a peruvian himi, the G-Herd Inn is closed. :)

I do have a wide range of ages in my herd. Gracie's probably the oldest at around 5yrs and I'm thinking Jetta's the youngest at around 6mons old.

Seniors are Gracie-5yrs and Angel-4 1/2yrs; Coco's 3yrs old.

Older herd are: Patches & Callie almost 4yrs; Mia, Bailey & Khloe around 3yrs; Lily 2yrs and Puddin 1 1/2yrs

Younger herd are: Rascal 2yrs; Luna, Roxie, & Abbey 1yr old; Piper & Josie about 10mons; Halo about 8mons; and Jetta around 6mons old.

Of course, these are all guestimations w/ the exception of Rascal, Patches & Coco.

The teacher told us that Hunny was purchased about 4yrs ago. So, I'm thinking she's around 4 to 4 1/2yrs old but she doesn't act like a 4yr old.

Hunny really is going back?

Your herd is a lot like mine, but I have more old timers than you do :)

Natasha is seven, Sidney and Sherman are six, Spencer is six, Dudley and Peabody are five.

Roxie is four and a half, Belle is three, Hopkins is three, Lacey and Lucy are two, Allie-Belle is one, and I have no idea about the three new girls (they have not been to the vets yet) I am guessing they are on the younger side, either one or two.

5: Amber
4: Tessa
3.5: Raja, Gheera and Jack

2.5: Zabby, Ginger, Charlie and Pinky

I agree, we are hard to keep up with, but Lorvoll is the worst! There are always kids coming and going! Speaking of, Jenn needs to go to CatNap!

Wow, the Weaver Inn is closed, the G-herd Inn is closed, The Weber Inn is closed, the Lorvoll Inn is closed... What's a piggie to do?!

Ok, I was very, very, VERY brave and was able to get the ear tag out w/ the help of my kids. Poor Josie! She's getting lots of lovin now and extra veggies for her bravery. :) I cleaned the hole in her ear and we'll watch for any infection over the next week or so. Hopefully, she'll be ok.

And it's so sad that so many Guinea Pig Inns/Resorts are closed.

Well, I have 18 plus a summertime piggie. I could feasibly go to 20 plus Hunny but w/ JUST adding 4 at once. I need to get things settled before I even THINK of taking on any more. But like I said, IF there ever comes available a female himi peruvian, I'd find the will to get her. Bawhahahaha!!

I'm just too excited because a few years ago, I was in love (& always wanted) in the self-black piggies and the himi piggies. I never thought I'd adopt either and here I have 2 himis (w/ 3 possible himiwannabes) and a self-black (w/ 1 that tries but she keeps adding brown to her fur). :)
