Dedicated to Raising Purebred Dutch & Purebred English Angora rabbits To the ARBA American Standard of Perfection
About me, what I do, and my precious Bunnies!
A Beautiful Chocolate doe!
My name is Anna, and I raise Dutch and English Angora rabbits and love being an amateur bunny photographer. I live in the beautiful Ozarks of South west Missouri.
I raise my rabbits to the working Standard of Perfection (SOP). I love doing what I do, and I'm here to improve the breeds that I am working on. I am a member of the ARBA, NARBC (National Angora club), SARC (southern Angora rabbit club), and the MAAC. (Mid America Angora club).
My story.... I started raising rabbits about 5 years ago, and have learned so much along the way. I started out first with my Dutch rabbits, loving raising rabbits that were small, didn't eat a ton, and had amazing personalities. The English Angoras all started one day when a local lady (now a friend) posted on a Facebook group several times over the course of a couple of months, some of the cutest pictures of English Angoras. I always ended up commenting on how cute they were and how absolutely adorable her pictures were. Then one day, she had to sell some of her favorites, and had a beautiful doe for a very good price. (If anyone knows me, I can't turn down a good deal, let alone on one of the most gorgeously adorable rabbits I had ever seen. ) So in the blink of one happy moment, I got a beautiful BEW English Angora rabbit named Angel.
Since then, I feel I've gone farther than I'd ever dreamed with both my English Angoras and my Dutch rabbits, going from just a couple of bunnies just for fun, to competing in State shows all over the midwest, to now showing at Nationals. Then, when I didn't think it could get any better, I inherited a traditional ashford spinning wheel from my Grandmother, built by my Grandfather. Spinning has taken off, I love Knitting, Spinning, & crafting with my wool! Every skein holds a special story for me, the bunny that grew the coat, the time and love invested in every garment, each one is truly priceless.
All along the way I've learned lots of important, amazing things, and I want to give credit to some other great breeders who took their time to teach me all about their rabbits and how to raise Angoras. English Angoras have been a journey, I've cried, laughed, cuddled, cleaned cages, groomed until my fingers were tired and pondered genetics until my head ached. I've been very blessed, and am so happy to be able to share a bit of my journey with you. I would encourage you to check out my Blog where I love to write about what all is new, fun, exciting, babies, spinning and so much more. Thanks so much for stopping by, and let me know if you will have any questions!
