Hello everyone. As it says in my title I am from New York. I have been raising cavies almost my whole life. I started in 4-H when I was 8 and started showing soon after. I have been a member of the ABRA and ACBA as well as some local clubs, for over 30 years. I have raised or worked on almost all the different breeds except for the Abbies. Americans and Teddies have been my specialties all of my life. I have worked on many varieties as well. At the present time we have about 150 cavies in our herd.
I still show some, when I am not judging. I became an offical judge ten years ago this coming March. Judging cavies has become most rewarding. Seeing all the different varieties that people have worked on is most exciting.
I work full time and raise two wonderful kids and a loving husband. I work for a vet part time, I can actually say he truely knows about gunea pigs as he has worked with me for 15 years now. I have also helped out other vets in the area to educate them in gunea pigs, as most vets get about an hours worth of training on small animals in school.
I haven't finished looking over the site yet, but it looks like a nice site.
