I now have over 25 signatures for my Cavy Registrars Application; I only need 20 Adult ARBA Member endorsements. I’ll be turning in my application to ARBA shortly. I’ve been studying the ARBA’s Standard of Perfection for Cavy’s as well as the Cavy Registrars Study Guide (work book).
I even had the unique opportunity to go to a Cavy Judge’s house to see her Caviary and have “hands on” teaching!
Here is a list of the breeds I had the pleasure of learning about in person: American, American Satin, Abyssinia, Abyssinia Satin, Peruvian, Peruvian Satin, Silkie, Silkie Satin and Texel. Did you know in the Cavy Breed’s there is different variations of Red Eyes? I saw Lilac and Red cavy’s. The Lilac cavy (sorry I don’t remember the breed) was a beautiful color! Then the red cavy boar that I saw was the color of an Irish Setter.
I was taught about proper cavy flooring. Cavy’s cannot or should I say should not live on wire bottom cages! Did you know cavy’s are born with their eyes open?
