So some of you may know, and for those of you who don't, The 91st ARBA National Convention was October 31st-November 4th. Although I didn't make it this year, thanks to the internet, I got to see lots of fun exciting updates on how it went. There were some amazing bunnies there, and Angora's did really well, as did the Dutch. Silvertone's Eye Candy took BOB English Angora, and was nominated for BIS. If you want to see more on the Angora winnings, go to Angorarabbit.com, where Lil Peck kindly put up all the show titles and wins as of recently. In the Dutch showring, a youth Dutch got BIS! There also was a new breed accepted into the ARBA SOP, The Argente Bruns! They make for 2 new breeds presented and accepted into the ARBA two consecutive years in a row!
Even though I didn't make it to convention, that didn't mean I wasn't going to get some more new hoppers! LOL... I got a beautiful REW Doe (pictured above) from Dustibunni English Angora's. She is the bunny of my Dreams, I've always wanted a Dustibunni, and now I have the sweetest, most adorable little gal there is and ever was. I'm so happy with her!! I still need to come up with a name, but for now she is being spoiled and loved on. She will be joining my fall showstring, as well as my Spring showstring, and Maybe, if she can hold her coat, Nationals in Ohio. So excited about that! I'm liking the name Dustibunni's Eloquence... I can call her Ellie for short. Ellie seems to fit her.
Aggie is due with babies on November 20th, She has gained weight, so I'm quite hopeful. Jinger needs to be bred, as does Raven.
Also!! For all the Dutch enthusiasts out there.... I have Dutch babies planned! I only have 4 dutch rabbits right now, and 1 is still a baby. But, Elise, my blue doe, is due with babies! If things go as planned, I should have some Dutch babies available sometime after New Years. Blue, and possibly some Grey and other colors, if I breed Cupcake. I admit I have been way behind on my Dutch lately, my Angora's are quite time consuming, and I have to be sure I'll have the cage space etc for babies when the time comes.
I have been falling behind on my weekly posts, like I used to do, I know. All I do is groom and everyday care... and I'm crazy busy with other things too. So I apologize for the lack of bunny posts here.... I will try to do better. As soon as I have some babies, things should pick up more. :-)
Thanks for stopping by! I'll hope to have another update again soon!
