Just wanted to make a quickie post about everything going on in the rabbitry. We have one final show in 2018 before showing takes a bit of a break until 2019, the Southern Pride show in Hopkins, SC. I will be taking my new buck Sammy (from Margaret Funck), as well as Pirate, and then Maggie. I will also be taking some of my juniors from my Dallan x Queenie & Pirate x Sookie litters, as long as they all make weight. Yoda will also be attending however that is because he will be sold to a buyer from NC.
Today, my bunny BFF Linda is coming over to breed her buck Leon to Maggie, and one of her does to Dallan. We will also be tattooing and evaluating the juniors I have and separating them by quality so I can go ahead and dispatch those who are not show quality. I also need to cut some cage wire and start working on my additional growout cages. So much to do, always so much to do.
I sent Yoda & Pirate to the Decatur RBA show last weekend with Linda, and Pirate ended up winning 2x BOB, earning his last leg towards his Grand Champion certificate. I just have to register him and send in his legs to get his certificate.
Sookie kindled 3 blacks & 1 blue by Yoda 11/24. Queenie was also bred to Yoda, however today is day 36 and no kits. Queenie is typically a day 32 and done, so I don’t believe she is pregnant. I will re-breed them again to see if we can get some kits before Yoda leaves. Time will tell. Faith is also bred to Dallan for kits due mid-December. I am giving Hymn the month off because she has grievously lost condition, would like to build her back up before I re-breed her, and if she loses condition in a similar manner, she will be culled from my program.
