Things are chilly here, as they most everywhere, although we've been having a few sunshiney days. The Angora's are doing great, I'm doing my best to keep up with grooming routines, and the girls that are bred are already starting to nest. Aggie already pulled some wool, I think she is excited to be a momma again. Jinger and Raven both eat like they are pregnant, so I'm hoping hard. ;-)
The Dutch Rabbits are doing nicely. Because it has been so cold, as well as still getting dark somewhat early, I haven't bred anyone. Give me 3 more weeks... Then I'll think about breeding them. ;-) Actually, I'll be putting a light on them, and changing their diet a little bit, It should help get Cupcake and Elise both a little more ready to lift and breed. My little Black buck is definitely calming down... He seems to like it here now and looks forward to seeing me. Little Milly is sweet as ever, can't wait to get her on the judging table. :-) She is going to be a stunner. She has on the best bodies I've ever seen on a Dutch rabbit, and her lineage is from some of the best show winning stock Bergene has. So with this small group of Dutch stock, I intend to place really well on the showtables. Already booking shows for the end of February, when I'll be heading to MT Vernon MO, and then I'll be headed back to Sedalia in March and April, before hitting Angora National's First weekend in May in Ohio! After that, I'll probably sit tight for the heat of the summer, grooming my hands to death, until ARBA convention in Portland OR, in the fall. Yep, I know it is a high jump, but I think it just might work this year. Yes, I'm already saving, I like the idea of the roadtrip as well as meeting so many people I would love to finally meet.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderful rest of the month, stay warm, and check back for more updates! Blessings~
