New Registered Rabbits 9/24/11

Fuzzibutt's Rabbitry & Oopsie Daisy Rabbitry would like to welcome two more rabbits that are Registered with the American Rabbit Breeders Associaiton.

Fuzzibutt's Shine All Night, Reg. (Black Flemish Giant Doe) ~Fuzzibutt's Rabbitry~

Skyview's Buster, Reg. (Siamese Sable Jersey Wooly) ~Oopsie Daisy Rabbitry~

 Why would you want to register a rabbit with the American Rabbit Breeders Assocaition?  There are several reasons, why a breeder would want to have registered stock. 

Another good reason to register a rabbit is that it is a seal of quality.  Only disqualification-free rabbits may be registered.  When you look at a pedigree, you may know very little of the ancestors (weight, color, sex and probably breeder), but if some are registered, you at least know that those rabbits had no disqualifications at the time of registration.

One reason to register your rabbit.... you cannot obtain a grand champion certificate unless the rabbit is registered to begin with.  You can win the legs first, then register the rabbit, then apply for the grand champion certificate if you need to.

Additionally, when registering a rabbit that has registered parents, your rabbit gets a red seal on its registration certificate.  If parents and grandparents are registered, your rabbit gets a red and white seal.  And, if all three generations have been registered, your rabbit gets a red, white, and blue seal on its registration certificate.
