Just before I begin, I would like to inform everyone that another article has been published over at PetFinder.my’s Wagazine. Click here to read. I would like to invite all readers to provide me with some feedback (if possible) or even some questions regarding rabbits that you would like to be addressed. If I find these questions interesting, I will be writing an article on the topic asked. I am indeed a pet lover first and I started off like any other. In fact, the disappointment brought about by irresponsible breeders was what inspired me to be a breeder myself. I am inspired to be a reputable breeder and be a testimony that it is possible to uphold ethical breeding (forget about profitability). This article highlights some of the ways in which new comers can avoid bad breeders. I hope everyone will enjoy and pass the link around to friends who are considering getting a rabbit as pet.
On the other hand, I cannot remember when was the last time I took photos of the rabbits but since Christmas is approximately 2 months away, I thought of testing out some sort of Christmas scene with the bunnies. I enjoyed the photo session very much and it gave me some time to groom every bunny. I am sure they enjoyed the little pampering with me giving them a good brushing, pedicure and manicure (ROFL!).
Here are some pictures that I took today. Hope you like what you see!
Carmel is now 6 years old. My little golden girl in the rabbitry.
He is my favorite homegrown and I am so happy to have produced this little wonder…
Byscuit is a very cute little doe. Hope she will continue to grow into a beautiful senior doe.
Murdoch have finally grown into his own and he looks like a little plush puppy right now. He is very consistent throughout his growth and the thing I like about him is how effortless he poses each time I place him on the table.
Ziero is truly a tanker and I am sure she makes a very good brood doe. Cannot wait to work on the sable point color project with her.
Little Dimmy is going through a major molt at the moment but nonetheless, he’s the boss of the rabbitry. No bun messes with Dimmy!
Faith is also going through her major molt but she still looks stunning!
Huge head and Big bum, that’s how Roscoe balances himself!
I love everything about this doe just like how I love all my bunnies!
Last but not least, our resident Mini Rex. Drogo is a very charming bun, he have won over everyone’s heart in this house!
I just heard another song that uses the words “True Love” and this time around it is from one of my favorite recording artiste – Ne-Yo. I’ll end this post by leaving you with the music video entitled Let Me Love You.
The 89th ARBA Convention at Wichita, Kansas has just concluded. Technology has made it possible for us living near and far to get almost instant updates on all that was happening which made it more bearable not being there in person.
I am sure the feeling of being present on location is very much different from looking at photos and watching videos. Certain things like the intensity, energy and massiveness of such an event can only be felt on the ground.
Though I have made a promise to myself to try and attend the ARBA Convention yearly with the sole intention of visiting my beloved bunny friends, God had a different plan for me this year. I was blessed with the opportunity to briefly visit 3 different states in the USA and one of which is one of the 7 wonders of the world. Until today, I am still awestruck by how massive it is and its energy is beyond the imagination. Photos are unable to describe how majestic this place is.
The size of the people on the edge only shows how huge this small section is.
This is but only a very small part of The Grand Canyon.
It really feels like I was at the top of the world and the feeling is impossible to describe, simply out of this world. And that was one of the things I was preoccupied with when most rabbit breeders were busy preparing for Convention.
Nice as it may seems, there were hard work involved in everything and in everything there is a price. That brings me to the next part of the intention of this post.
I have known the wonderful family over at the Three Little Ladies Rabbitry since the initial days of my rabbit raising journey. Though younger, the girls have been raising rabbits (seriously) for much longer than me and their collective years of experience surpasses me by many miles.
After such a long time, their hard work finally paid off at this year’s Convention when one of their Jersey Woolly rabbits was crowned Best Of Breed in Open. Their win inspires me as it is a good testimony of how hard work and perseverance can bring about sweet victory. I can always remember that tiny little girl holding one of her rabbits in that news article and I am sure that little girl has grown to be much taller than I am.
Congratulations to the Usakowski family especially Taylor & Jessica!
