In 1992 Mamaku Stud was registered by my mum (Marilyn) and showing one of the Unique and Rare Pedigree Breeds the 'New Zealand Plumes'. Over 27 years breeding and showing New Zealand Plumes they are obviously very dear to our hearts. Tintola Stud was registered in 2001 by me (Jen), I wanted my own stud name after several years of showing under Mamaku Stud with my mum. I focus on Self Chocolates and New Zealand Peruvians. We do have Tweeds. We support and are proud of unique breeds in New Zealand and we continue showing with Independent Cavy Clubs, the best clubs to show Unique Breeds.
We are two small Pedigree Cavy (Guinea Pigs) studs in Whangarei, New Zealand and members of Independent clubs the Northern Rabbit and Cavy Club, Taranaki Cavy Group and New Zealand Cavy Club that use the Pedigree Show Standards from New Zealand Cavy Judges Association. We also help run the New Zealand Unique Cavies Club which promotes, raises awareness and gives information for Unique and Rare breeds. Fore more on the cavy clubs and some other sites we recommend visit our Links page.
We breed for quality not quantity and with the aim to better our studs for showing. We also enjoy our Guinea Pigs and cuddle them as much as possible. Our Cavies get Fresh Veges, Fresh Hay, Fresh Grass and Guinea Pig Pellets that contains Vitamin C and Prebiotics for digestive health daily.
Join our Facebook Group for studs news, photos and sometimes we post cavies for sale.
