Maybe I'll write more later, but basic stuff you might want to know (or not): I have 2 dogs and 3 guinea pigs. I have a separate box for guinea pigs ... I might talk more about the dogs here. I am an adult, but not very serious about being one. Ummm ... yeah, later. If you have anything specific you'd like to see me discuss, let me know ... I won't make any guarantees, but I might include it.
   
                 
 
The fuzzy little guinea pig acting as my avatar is Twix. She is 7 in that picture. Unfortunately, she has passed away. My current guinea pigs are a mostly black American satin, and a chocolate and white Peruvian (technically half-Peruvian, but she's got the long fur and rosettes), and a sable lunkarya (I'm not sure if she's a solid silver or a dilute solid, but her coat is dark, long, curly, and beautiful with a wooly tummy.)


My piggies eat Sweet Meadow food, for anyone who is curious. Sweet Meadow brand is very well liked, even by picky eaters, and they also sell great, long, soft hay. I used to feed Oxbow, which is a brand that was recommended by a small animal specialist years ago, and in my experience, Oxbow is nationally available and well liked by guinea pigs. They also get lettuce daily and slices of carrots, sweet peppers, and apples for treats. And hay, hay, hay galore!


We currently have a bumper crop of sweet peppers, so she is getting lots of those lately. For those uncertain of what I mean by "sweet pepper," it just means that they are not hot peppers; the classic example would be a bell pepper, but we aren't growing bell peppers. "Jimmy Nardello," "Yum-yum" (especially the orange one), and "Lunchbox" are probably the top of our list currently.
Varieties we've grown recently with excellent results include: "Tweety," "Yummy"/"Yum-yum," "Lunchbox," "Jimmy Nardello," "Cornito Giallo," "Big Daddy," and "PeppiGrande." We order most of our seeds online, but they might be available online pre-started, as well, if you're not that ambitious.
Our pepper plants generally continue to produce peppers late into November, though they have to be brought inside before the first frost.
I'm happy to share where I get my plants and seeds or discuss such things if you're interested ... just shoot me a message; the piggies don't bite.

 
I haven't entirely decided what I'm going to put in this box, but it was already there, so it got to stay. Maybe I'll make this for gardening, cooking, crocheting, or something like that ...


This presentation was made for me a while ago by a player on international (kitsune247), and I made a couple modifications to adjust box titles and such, but I didn't really want to make huge changes, so I may have more boxes than I really need.
 
I've got a couple different endeavors going on currently, but I work on them all sporadically. At the moment, my primary project is my French Trotter unicorns ... I work on them as I can, using classic sibling and parent-child breeding; I've usually got one or two active generations at a time. My naming scheme on these has evolved a few times through the generations, so if my names seem odd, well, they probably relate to one or both of the parental names somehow ... with varying levels of creativity on how I got there. I do try to have names and coats relate if possible, though it's not always possible. Most of my horses spend the majority of the time collecting dust, but that doesn't mean that I don't care about them. I will offer coverings if you ask; I offer them sporadically otherwise. Penstemon offers covering publicly when I remember for my FT unicorns, and I'd be happy to send reserved coverings if you ask.


I always game my horses fully, but I do not use a schedule, per se, I'd be happy to explain how I go about my games, but don't expect a complex schedule for each day of training broken down hour by hour. I don't find gaming to need that.
I find that blupping can be rather monotonous, and I am not generally a speed blupper; I can blup quickly if I need to (assuming I can get the competitions to run quickly enough to collect up wins in a timely manner). I rarely find the need for rushing, though, and generally run my breeding programs pretty casually. If my horse is troubling yours in competitions, it's not personal ... and if you let me know, I can try to avoid it. Otherwise, I generally just indiscriminately enter whatever's on top of the list.


Loony Bin is a team that started when I dragged Loon Watcher into my French Trotter unicorn craze. It's a casual team, and we're not actively looking for more members. Our affix is Loony Tunes, and yes, the spelling is intentional.


I have been on various teams in the past, and I'm not opposed to being on other teams in the future; however, I do need to know the expectations, and I expect a unified group with a uniform goal. (The goal doesn't need to be ambitious or anything ... just not a free for all.) Oh, and it should probably be a breed and species I'm interested in ... sorry donkeys, you're not for me.


Speaking of donkeys ... I've got this goofy pair of foundie winged donkeys ... I bred them together for some objective ... if you want the foals or possibly even the jenny, let me know and we can talk price.


At some point, I'm going to make a horse into Amira, though I haven't gotten around to getting a decent enough horse that it would be worth my skilling. Like Spectra who became Altair, I probably won't buy a gelding, since I dislike getting horses that I can't use beyond that single horse. It will likely live it's pre-legendary life as a mare for my own breeding purposes, just as Spectra did. Though if she is any indicator, nothing much will happen in the long run ... I just hate losing a line of horses.
