Cinnamon's babies.

I have decided to keep 2 babies from Cinnamon's and Sundance's litter. I really wanted to keep a doe, since Cinnamon will hopefully be leaving to go to Velotta's Rabbitry next month, so I am keeping the lilac chinchilla doe. I wasn't planning on keeping another buck, since I already have Cody and he is a very, very nice buck, but this chocolate chinchilla buck was too nice to let go to someone else! I am anxious to see them develop and breed them in the fall. The buck will be bred to my non-chocolate carrier does (Sidney and Silver) while his brother will get my other does. The doe will be outcrossed to Ryan, to add some new blood into the gene pool, or back to Sundance. I haven't thought up of names for them yet, but I will soon hopefully.
Both of the babies together =P

Bakersfield Results!

The highlight of the show for us was taking BOSB in the Open Mini Lop Specialty with Silent Spring's Cody. This is Cody's 4th leg, all junior. He is doing really well! He still has a few more shows until he turns senior, so hopefully he can win a few more legs. I got a really nice frame for the award. Congrats to the Deucks, who won BOB with their broken doe, Lilo!

I sold Nick and Natasha to my friend, Lizz Brown, Hannah to Jess and Tina, and the lilac chinchilla junior doe to a nice 4H family :-) It was a great show! I was going to try and buy some water bottles and new hooks, but I didn't have any time. I also need a new carrier, my old 4-hole is getting too old for me!
