OUR PAST LADIES*** Please note the pigs below are just some of our PAST sows. We no longer have a pedigree breeding program here at Sirocco. If you are local, and looking for a quality pedigree texel as a foundation boar for your own stud, you can contact Ohana Cavy Stud (based on the northside of Brisbane, Qld, AUSTRALIA) as they have taken ownership of a number of our pigs ***
'Amethyst' was born on the 10th June 2012 to Walters Sebastian Bear and 'Isla' (daughter of Lavender Vale Tex and Glenjolie Savannah). She is silver agouti and white, with suspected roaning through her coat.
This little lady is 'Sirocco Amore' - pedigree texel sow. She was born to Hazelron Romeo and Sirocco Opal on the 10th March 2013. She is lilac/gold argente (lilac base, gold tips), gold and white - and a really pretty colour mix. She's just a young lady, but growing nicely. She is the full sister to our Sirocco Amadeus' (who can be seen in our boys page).
Arabella was born on the 26th June 2012 to 'Glenjolie Liam' and 'Robyn's Nest Giselle'. She was a single bub and born HUGE! (photo below shows her newborn photo, followed by her coat-progress at just 3months of age!)
Bambi was born on the 15th August 2012 as part of our 'curly sheba' program. We were attempting to produce a true-breeding variety of guinea pig that had the Sheba Mini Yak rosettes and hair-length, but with a curl rather then straight hair. Bambi and her sister 'Blessing' were pretty close to what we were looking for, but in using the texel lines to introduce the curly gene, the coats would grow too soft and fine, and we'd loose the lift required in the sheba breed. It is still a program that would have some merrit if you can find some good breeding stock to work with that you KNOW the background of - and if you know your genetics and understand the recessive/dominant gene thing. It will be a project that you will need to commit at least 4-5yrs to though, as breeding in a new variety, and using a foundation breed with recessive traits like the texel will require many generations to bring the lines back to 'true breeding' (and to get the breed looking significantly different to the already established 'alpaca' standard).
(4 months old - the coat still had awesome lift at this stage)
(7-month coat. Beautiful, but starting to droop under the weight now)
