Worldwide Launch

It is only natural for awesome people to come together and create beautiful things together. So it is in the case of the people behind The Show Table and my father, Simon Chan. For some time now, Simon has been creating beautiful paintings of rabbits in particular, which have been enthusiastically received across the globe. We were looking for ways to reach additional rabbit (and other pet) fanciers and that was when Ms. Gina of The Show Table approached us with an amazing idea.

TheShowTable

We love her products and she loves Simon’s paintings – the rest, as they say, is history. In fact this is a historical moment because this collaboration took place across over 9000 miles from the capital city Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to South Bend, Indiana, USA!

Without further ado, here is the WORLDWIDE PREMIER of The Show Table featuring Simon Chan’s Art!

The Show Table products can be order at http://www.gbfarm.org/Order-Form.pdf. Additional information on products and fabrics available in Albums on The Show Table facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/TheShowTable

Would You Like To Have A Pet Rabbit?

I am not sure if age is catching up or life has been a little demanding lately. Either way, it seemed that 24 hours is just not enough for a day. Sometimes I surrender to the fact that I am slowing down (LOL!).

I must apologize for the lack of updates on this side of the world and I am sure everyone has become an expert in rabbits since there are so much resources that are readily available on the internet. I am not too sure how many would take the time to read the old postings here and for those who does, I hope you benefit from the information shared.

At this time, I have a couple of pets available for adoption and for sale. For those who are interested to know more, please email me at truluvrabbitry@gmail.com so that we can work something out.

A cute little Fuzzy Holland Lop. DOE. She is for sale at a very reasonable price.

A decent pet Holland Lop. BUCK. He is Charlie marked. Also for sale at a reasonable price.

This little BUCK is a very small Holland Lop. I would like to find a good home for him at no cost (FREE). Please let me know if you are interested.

This is a very nice broken doe. She is blind on the left side. I am looking for a good home for her at no cost (FREE). Her blindness is due to an injury caused by accidental fall. Please let me know if you are interested.

Value

I am very excited to announce my debut as a featured writer on PetFinder.my’s newly launched online magazine – WAGazine!!! If you have not already read it, click here to read. This is part 1 of a series of articles that I will be writing all about rabbits! I hope everyone enjoys the article as they are written based on my experiences raising rabbits in Malaysia.

On the other hand, most of you might have heard that Tru-Luv Rabbitry is going through a major herd reduction. I will post pictures of rabbits available. I have also sold a set of 3 feet cages together with the shelf unit. What a hot item it was.

Please do not misunderstand this for a sell out. I am not selling out of rabbits but instead it is a downsizing exercise. I shall explain the reason why I am downsizing and also why I will never sell out.

I am sure some of you might have experienced the “light bulb” moment. A sudden surge of awareness or sometimes referred to as wake up call. I experienced not only once but a few “wake up calls” during the past few months. Many incidents that took place somehow enlightened me and I shall share them with you.

All these wake up calls evolved around the word VALUE and thus, the title of this post.

Back in the days when I first started raising my first pet rabbit, I only had one rabbit and we both became best buddies. Somehow when you have just one pet, you tend to get very attached and the pet will also be very attached to you. I believe most breeders will tell you that somewhere among the many rabbits that they have, there is sure to be one “heart” bunny. The special one that we all get attached to.

My first wake up call came a couple of weeks before the rabbit show in June. The rabbit show was organized in conjunction with the pet fair. One of the pet product supplier approached me and asked if I can loan him my “smartest” rabbit. That caught me off guard and made me think for a while. What should we expect from a smart rabbit? Must it be able to solve puzzles?

Now, I am sure that if a rabbit spend enough time, get enough attention and training, it can do some sort of tricks. I did train chickens to fly unto my hands when I stretch them out when I was just 9 years old. Chickens have the brain and I strongly believe rabbits do too. Looking at the rate how the rabbit hopping hobby is growing there is no doubt that rabbits are trainable. I did mention about Tinga and Tridus being habitual “food beggars” in my article as well.

The 2nd wake up call came when I was asked to judge the fun show at the recent rabbit gathering. I did mention the interesting judging criteria i.e. creative movement, obedience, following instructions and etc. These are possible although I do not think I will make an effort to do all that.

And that got me wondering what is lacking in my hobby. The problem I realize lies in the number of rabbits that I have to care for. There is not enough time to bond with my pets. With so many, it has become a chore more than an enjoyable past time. How in the world did I get to this point? Simply because I was trying so hard to produce that one “perfect” rabbit according to the standard. And that made me miss out on the fun of truly enjoying my pets. I spend more time cleaning up than interacting with my pets.

If you look around you, there is something that you will surely notice – DIVERSITY. In a litter of rabbits, every kit is different for that reason. And unfortunately, by subscribing to adhere to strive for the one “perfect” standard, we are discarding what we are taught to be undesirable. I have learned to accept that this “perfection” will never come about simply because how mother nature intends to be diverse. Going against mother nature is like trying to make earth turn the other direction. I am not only referring to the case of rabbits but any pets in the “show” world in general.

When I look at show animals in general, this image comes to my mind…

A goldfish?

The goldfish is a type of ornamental fish. The ornamental fish market makes up quite a huge percentage in the pet industry. Fishes in a well decorated tank can be a very relaxing sight to behold after a hard day’s work. If you ask a fish to swim on command, most probably you will get much disappointment.

That is how it is when you have too many rabbits in cages. They just look like ornamental rabbits and sit in cages looking pretty. I believe that when we keep animal as pets, there should be interaction.

Thinking back about how things used to be, I was able to share on this blog the different personalities that I see in my rabbits. I no longer able to do that because I realized that I do not spend enough time to notice them anymore. That is not how it suppose to be.

It is funny how sometimes we contradict ourselves. I am sure you have come across “REASONS NOT TO BREED YOUR …” articles and one of the DON’T is not to breed if you think your pet is the best and you want to produce another one like it. But if you take a step back and think about it, that’s exactly what most breeders are doing. They are trying to produce that “best” to replace the “bests” before the “best”.

Now the question is, will I still breed? Of course I will but I shall breed for what I like in terms of health and general disposition.

What about wanting to win at show?

I have come to realize that my pets are LARGER than the shows. They are much more valuable than the fee I pay to enter them into shows and have a judge or two spending just 2 minutes looking at them and conclude they are worthless! I am very contented that I have produced show worthy rabbits.

And do allow me tell you how valuable my rabbits are. Each time I decide to cut the numbers down in my rabbitry, those left behind are the old barren does or the 3 years old bucks that I have grown to love. Why do I keep those that have no “production” value and pass along those that can still produce? That really boils down as to what is the objective of you wanting to keep these animals as pets.

The hardest decisions for me really is when I have to pass along the imports. These rabbits have sentimental values that I hold dearly to my heart. Each time I look at them, it reminds me of those who sent them to me. I have met each one of them and have hugged them in person. Having these rabbits with me is the closest I can be with these lovely people. This is the only reason why I will never sell out. Perhaps when all my favorite bunnies have left for rainbow bridge, that could be the day I will declare that I am done.

What I am trying to say is that, you can never put a price tag on a rabbit that means a lot to you. They are not just soft toys on the shelves that you can pick and pay at the counter. Each and every one of my rabbits are invaluable to me.

It is sure nice to obtain a Grand Champion leg or two in this lifetime but Grand Champion rabbits come and go in droves. Even the best bunnies will have to die eventually. What do you make out of all the papers?

How much we lose ourselves when we lose focus on what matters.

For me, what matters most is being able to share unique bunnies to individuals who truly appreciates the joy of having them as pets. Being able to build friendships that last a lifetime. Being able to travel across the globe to hug a bunny friend. Going through life’s ups and downs encouraging each other and sharing the joy.

The truth to the matter is, there will be no rabbits without the people to share with. And the value of things is in where we prefer value is to be placed.

The following rabbits are available and please email me at truluvrabbitry@gmail.com for more information. Thank you!

3 Weeks Old BIS & Grand Champion Winner Anyone?

Many breeders start selling their rabbits when they are 8 weeks old and on the other hand, buyers nowadays are fast learning to use bunny language, terms and lingo. But when both these situations collide, we do have a slight problem.

I am not sure how other breeders react to the question “Are they show or brood quality?”

I must say that this is a irrelevant question when it comes to buying a young rabbit. No one can guarantee if the rabbit at 8 weeks would turn out to be Show Quality or even winning material for the matter. I for one will never ever guarantee my 8 weeks old are show materials. I can see the potential but can never guarantee a 100% show quality.

In many incidents, I found that buyers can only relate the term “Show Quality” to the little chubby “bulldog”ish look in a Holland Lop and at the same time disregarding the Standard of Perfection altogether. They are not aware of the Standard of Perfection at all and as long as the little bunny is chubby and cute, anything goes. The term “Show Quality” is merely used as a search criteria just like how we enter keywords into Google for a quick search. It has lost all its meaning and weight.

As a friend commented on this subject, “even a show quality rabbit that is not well taken care of can turn out to be a pet quality rabbit”. I go a step further to say that even if it is a show quality animal, it is very subjective whether if it gets thrown off the show tables first or stay on and claim its Best of Breed title.

I have learned that this hobby is extremely dynamic and subjective. And like how my mentor puts it, we should breed according to the Standard of Perfection and also, “BREED FOR WHAT I LIKE”.

But just for the fun of it and throwing in a little humor into the subject, I would like to say that every 3 or 4 weeks old Holland Lop deserves the BIS title.

Let me tell you why with the photos below:

Perfect at 3 weeks?

The truth of the matter is, you can never be sure until the rabbit is at least 4 months old.

BUT, this should not be taken as an excuse to sell rabbits at 8 weeks and saying, “It’s hard to tell at 8 weeks”. There is a keyword called “Potential” and I shall leave that up to the breeder who you are buying the young rabbit from to explain further why he/she thinks the rabbit(s) in question have the potential.

Good luck in your search!
