I love getting stuff in the mail other than bills and junk mail. Today was the best kind of mail day, as a show report came in. It’s for the California Dutch Rabbit Club specialty we hosted on July 14th in Corralitos. I’m happy to report LDR’s Lilo picked up another leg winning BOV black! I’ll have to check that may have granded her. A new black junior buck was second in a large class under Allen Messick and bombed under Nate Burbridge, cracks me up when that happens. My steel doe SS Cleopatra was the only steel doe but won BOV over a nice steel buck both shows. As usual LDR’s Gunner and LDR’s Maximus traded the win in the tort senior buck class. My junior buck LDR’s SPR25 (full sibling to Maximus, so I’m thinking of calling him Brutus or Cesar, feel free to vote in the comments.) came in 2nd both times behind Schmall’s Mac, the hot buck I talked about on Wednesday. No one else really did much of note, my junior does are too young to compete against the beauties Fran has right now. Thankfully hers should be turning senior soon! Lol. Now just have to wait for the Watsonville report and I’ll know how my weekend went.
I must be going for the worst blogger award, I just didn’t know it. Can you believe that I forgot to take pictures at the show? Two whole days of bunnies and not one pic. It was a crazy show between showing two breeds, dealing with a teething 9 month old baby and a dog. My husband was a real saint and did his best, but it was still a bit crazy. So sadly I missed a lot and will have to wait for the show report to come in the mail before giving a full report here. But I did want to share a picture of my new tort doe.
Meet Schmall’s Megan. Both her sire and dam are half my line, so I think she’ll cross nicely with my current stock. I’m very pleased with her and can’t wait for her to grow up. The Schmall’s showed her littermate brother Mac to a BOB over the weekend. I was drooling over him and think I’ll be getting spanked by him a lot. 🙂
Happy to say we’re going to a bunny show this weekend. We’ll be showing Dutch at the Triple Crown show in Corralitos on Saturday and both Dutch & Polish in Watsonville on Sunday. Got a few juniors I’m exited about, so hopefully I’ll have a nice report on Monday, with pictures this time too! 😉
Please e-mail if you are looking for any specific sale animals. The sales list here on the blog is not up to date. We have lots for sale, but not a lot of room to take extra bunnies to the show. So definitely give me a heads up if you are looking for something specific. I just might have it available.
