"Fur Keeps"

I just wanted to share some a photo of Fuzzibutt's Fur to Pleeze "Fur Keeps" who will be making the trip to Angora Nationals in Iowa. His sire was the 2012 Best of Breed Giant Angora at Angora Nationals in Palmyra, NY. Doesn't he look like his dad G.C. Fuzzibutt's Gigantor, Reg.?

On a beautiful day like today

On a beautiful day like today, who wants to be cooped up inside working on school work? Not, me! So I decided to go out and groom some of my angora rabbits and the one’s I’m babysitting. Three of the angoras needed to be prepped and groomed before our big trip to Iowa for Angora Nationals. Than my adult ADA set in, lol. I wanted to snap some photos of the three contenders that will be making their way cross county for Angora Nationals.

Baltimore & Howard Rabbit Club 4/5/14

An honorable mention from Judge Mr. Whaley of NC for Best 4-Class went to G.C. Heart Felt Hares Libby, Reg. which was a great honor in itself. I have been babysitting Libby for my good friend Debbie of Heart Felt Hares in NC. Not to mention one of the American (Guinea Pigs) that I have been babysitting for won Best In Show for my good friend Elaine in MD. Jessica’s Harlequin, Tractor won Best of Breed in both shows and my Giant Angora Fur Keep’s won 2nd in his class to a lovely buck that is owned my good friend Melanie in VA.  I have the great opportunity to groom the Best of Breed Giant Angora, and some very promising Satin Angoras junior does for Melanie. I had a great time chatting with the lady who got me started in the Giant Angora breed over 8 years ago, Judy Osborn.

First sign of spring

First sign of spring for me was today when my Daffodil’s in my front yard bloomed first thing this morning. I have been waiting a week from them to bloom. Not to mention I now have a few Dandelions’s in the yard. I had enough flowers to give all of my mom rabbit’s one. I even picked handfuls of grass out back around the ditch and gave all of the pigs (Cavy’s) a small handful. Boy did everyone enjoy there treats.

March Madness

The month of March has taken us from Delaware to Georgia, Virginia, North Carolina and Pennsylvania and other states in between for Rabbit & Cavy Shows.  During the month of March Jessica attended Harlequin Nationals in Dalton, Georgia. In Pennsylvania, I was able to successfully registrar a Cavy to finalize my requirements for my Cavy Registrars Exam. Not to mention all of the wins we have been receiving with our rabbits and cavy’s this past month.

For the month of April we are looking forward to a few new litters of rabbits to continue on with our lines. These little ones will be our Convention hopefuls for Convention in Texas in November. We are looking forward better weather in the month of April. March has been a crazy month for weather!
