Jessa's Current Litter

I haven't posted pictures in the blog for a long time, so I thought I would share pictures of Jessa's recent litter. They were born December 18, 2009, so they're almost four weeks old! The broken steel is a doe, while the steel is a buck. :)

I'm definitely thinking about keeping the buck, he is adorable! I'll know for sure in a few weeks.

Bakersfield Rabbit Show Entries

My first show of the year! Entries are due soon, so I thought I should get a rough list together. The thing I love about winter is that most of the bunnies have great coats, so I just have to make sure they have the flesh condition! Here's my potential show list.

Mini Lops:
Velotta's Blake
Silent Spring's Minerva
Silent Spring's Triton
Silent Spring's Jessa

Jersey Woolies:
Silent Spring's Diamond
Bluestar's Edmund
White Oak's Wanda
MLW's Cammie

This is the most I've shown in a LONG time. I'm really excited to see how they all do! I might switch out Velotta's Bella for Jessa, but it would be really nice if Jessa got her granding leg at this show. She's looking great, I'm going to wean off her litter in a few days.

Oh! Today I bred Jessa (to Blake again, since they throw spectacular babies!) and Bella (to Triton). Crossing fingers for babies!

First Post of the Year!

I just got done feeding the rabbits a few minutes ago. I love the winter, they always get the most dense coats this time of year.

My juniors are looking really good. I'm happy with the purchases I made a few months ago, I definitely made smart choices. Minerva is probably one of the best Mini Lops I've ever bred, and all three of my Wooly juniors are developing nicely. I can't wait to show them! My favorite is probably Edmund, because he's such a ham.

I want some Wooly babies, but none of my does are old enough to breed yet! I think I'll try to find a doe at Bakersfield. :)
