Welcome back!! A lot has changed and happened in the last few weeks or so in my rabbitry and I thought I'd give y'all a little update. Let's start with the litters! Olivia's litter are 2 weeks old and are getting big! Hopefully will be able to tell the genders in the next couple of weeks! Lola's babies are doing great and they are just roughly 1.5 weeks old. Bubbles had a litter on the 28th but wasn't taking care of them so I decided to foster them to Demeter and Janice. Unfortunately, I lost 3 of Bubbles' babies but the remaining 5 are doing excellent. Demeter had 2 solids and 2 brokens and they are fat and healthy. Janice had 2 solids and 1 broken. She does have a mystery color kit in that litter and I'm pretty excited to see what it turns out to be!! It may even be a shaded!! Bianca is due next Saturday, Winnie is due in about 2 weeks and Corona is due the week after!!
Show Update: Today on 4/01/17, I went to the Lisbon Show in Lisbon, Ohio. I only took 6 rabbits: Olivia, Winnie, Wizard, Bubba, Sapphire and my homegrown buck Feisty. I did good! I met up with some fellow breeders and got to meet a few new ones and it was amazing!!
Wizard took 5th place out of 14 senior bucks and he did good.
Bubba took 13th place out of 14 senior bucks. He had some stiff competition but ARBA Judge Nita Butler said he's a promising buck!
Olivia took 8th place out of 8 senior does. I was kind of bummed with how she placed but she is currently on a litter so I can see why she was placed as last. But still, to me she did fine.
Winnie took 1st place out of 8 senior does and received B.O.V. This was a major win for her and for me. The judge loved this doe and I'm glad I got show Winnie as this was her first show of the year!!
Sapphire took 5th place out of 6 junior does. She had a good comments and the judge said she was a promising doe!
Feisty, my homegrown buck took 1st place out 3 junior bucks! The judge also said he was a promising buck! I'm so glad I decided not sell him. He did an excellent job at his first show of the year and his first show ever!
I've created this blog section because I would love to give any newcomers who are thinking about having rabbits as pets, starting to raise rabbits, care, and product reviews. Please enjoy.
