I named them after their characters..the temporary name of Greedy Pig was immediately obvious and quickly permanent. On her first vet visit I was still calling the other Blackie....as she was harder to get to know as very nervous, but I decided on Scoot as she scooted out of sight as soon as she saw you.
This photo was taken in June 2002.
And this one at the end of August so you can see their size compared to the dishes

I love reading stories like this, so we can see how far we've come being cavy slaves.
I too had a outdoor hutch at first, and when I swapped that for a two tier one I thought it was huge. I wonder what my old self would have thought if I had seen and C&C back then.
Anyway, looking back on pictures of her when I first got her, she must be the worlds biggest, fattest and longest piggy ever if she was full grown when I got her! ;)
She is actually probably my smallest.
You piggies are very cute!!! :)
At least twice a year we go to Scotland to see my folks so I had to be able to easily move pigs and their stuff to whoever was looking after them while we were away.
Mr Snuggles hutch did just fit in my Ford Escourt and was light so easily carried when taking pigs to holiday homes.
But now I have a Fiesta.
This is from this morning from our Cornish holiday. Two cages, correx sunshade, pig junk, houses, hay, sawdust, separator grids.The pigs were in a triple decker on the front seat but I was too stressed to remember to photo them. Just as well it was only me and them as there would have been no room for OH.
Things used to be much easier when I just had two pigs who got on.
