Tough Inquiries!

Once in a while I do get inquiries through emails and phone calls with the toughest questions. Some questions are easy but they often caught me off guard. The past few days I have been receiving quite a number of calls and emails. Most of them are easy to handle but I needed time for some because they are to be tackled with care.

Simple questions are difficult to answer because these are issues of the past which I no longer have to deal with. Sometimes even when simple things happen in the rabbitry, I find it hard to think of the solution because they caught me off guard most of the time.

As much as I would like to be very honest and bluntly straight forward in my emails and phone calls as how I write my blog, I must be tactful in handling certain issues. Most of the time I am getting emails and phone calls from strangers and my words could be used against me. Past experiences has taught me to very careful and the good thing is, I do not operate a farm and my rabbits stay exclusive.

Just to share some questions I wish not to answer. Please do not ask me these questions anymore.

1) I noticed that your rabbits are so different from what I have seen locally. Why is that so?

If you have been following this blog, you’ll get the answer to that question easily. But since I have written so much and some may have missed it, here’s a little short explanation. Good and responsible breeders will always fall back to the breed standards. You will only get a certain look in the breed if you breed rabbits based on the Standard Of Perfection. You will never get a Netherland Dwarf if you are breeding towards the Holland Lop direction. Let’s start off with where most of the breed specification can be found.

2) You are one of the known rabbit breeders locally, may I know whose rabbits are the best?

My answer to this is, PLEASE JUDGE FOR YOURSELF. I do not like to mention names and I am not even bothered to compare. I just do not mention whatever or whoever I feel not worthy of recommendations. If you don’t hear it from me, please don’t ask. Just understand and pick up whatever I mention.

3) There is a show coming up, will you setup a booth there or are you participating?

Please do not misunderstand. I am NOT a farm operator. I am doing this solely for leisure and as a hobby. My rabbits will always stay exclusive. I emphasize on Quality & not quantity.

On whether I am participating or not, all I can say is that, I rather participating in something worthwhile where I can earn ARBA legs.

Well, I am sure most of you may be very confused with all the MAMBO JAMBO I am ranting. I guess what J of J & J told me once was very true indeed. I am honored that she told me so and it was quite enlightening for me. I do not mean to be braggy and proud but she did mentioned that TLR is a little too advanced for Malaysia. I truly understand that because the terms I use may make some go bonkers!

I still believe strongly on AWARENESS & EDUCATION. People just have to be exposed to the right thing from the start so that we can all move forward together. TLR will remain as a platform for educating the general public on this entire rabbit Hocus Pocus thing!
