Truth, Cock & Bull Friday

The amount of bullshit that is going around these days are totally appalling and I cannot help but to sympathize all new comers in the rabbit raising hobby. Day in and day out, new comers are flooded with information and misinformation by “seasoned” breeders and “self proclaimed” gurus of the “industry”. Like the usual, I would love to take on the role of the “bad guy” to clear the air and help confused new comers understand. And as usual, a picture speaks a thousand words and therefore, here are some photos to pick your brain. I did not say that knowing the truth is going to be easy and you still need a little brain power to reason before getting the answer.

I have made this a little more interesting whereby you are asked to judge based on whether it is the TRUTH, COCK (maybe, possible, iffy) and BULL (total Bullshit that is).

Marble & Pocket

Due to recent events and life’s experiences, I would love to write a little story to brighten up everyone’s day. Here goes…

Once upon a time, there lived Marble and Pocket.

Marble is a very special thing because it can multiply itself and there is never an end to the number of Marble to be found. In short, you can almost not run out of Marble.

On the other hand, Pocket is a very lonely thing. It always feel empty since whatever that is placed in Pocket, will always leave Pocket. They never stay permanently.

One fine day, Pocket met Marble and soon Pocket realized that Marble multiplies. Each time Pocket felt hungry, Pocket would complain to Marble and seeing how pitiful Pocket was, Marble voluntarily sell some of itself to get Pocket some food. Then, Pocket thought of a fantastic idea because Marble cannot stop multiplying in Pocket that space was running out.

Pocket started selling all except one Marble and soon Marble felt used and abused.

To cut the story short, Marble left Pocket and Pocket felt all alone again.

And the moral of the story is…

Faking It

image

I have seen a great deal of interesting behavior when competition gets rough. It happens when people prefer to act selfish for self gain. I remember clearly in the past how competition brings out the “best behavior” when my father joined a fishing competition. Feeling impressed by another angler’s good fortune, my father humbly approached the “lucky guy” and asked what ingredients did he use as part of the bait. That guy just blurted out some nonsense which did not make sense and my father took that as a queue to stop asking. Of course in the business world there are many trade secrets that cannot be revealed in fear of losing out in the fierce competition.

As of late, I am seeing this selfish trend in the rabbit world. One in particular is when breeders snap photos of their rabbits with packaging of certain brand of rabbit food as background in hope of “promoting” the brand in question.

Unfortunately, there are many cases where the breeders do not actually feed that brand as depicted but the beautiful rabbit is the product of another brand instead.

There are many reasons however why people resort to such behavior and below are just some that I can think of:-

The Need For Acceptance

Being social being we humans tend to seek acceptance to gain a sense of belonging within a certain group of people we think might be beneficial to us. They know that their rabbits do not thrive on the depicted brand but just want to “kiss the ass” of certain people to be accepted within the group or it is a diplomatic way to be “in good terms”. I call that HYPOCRITIC

Competition Elimination

So that no one else have nice rabbits, showing others to the way to a product that does not work well can be used as an option to get rid of the competition.

So what are the implications of these tactics?

#1 – Misinformed Newbies
Those suffer the most are the new people starting off in the hobby. Their rabbits are not given the good diet and since they are misguided, they will eventually give up the hobby.

#2 – Good Products Made Unavailable
With the misconception, due credit is not given to the good product which slowly affect the availability of such product. In the long run the selfish people themselves not being able to have access to the product their rabbits thrive on.

So what can we do?

Simply, give credit where credit is due!

The Reputation Of A Breeder

As 2009 draws to a close, I would just like to explain why it is important for me to pass along my rabbits to trustworthy people. I have gone through a lot of local rabbit websites and weblogs. They are all appalling. Tons of mixes will be hitting the market really soon and on a constant basis.

Tru-Luv Rabbitry does not only carry the name Tru-Luv Rabbitry. My rabbits are tattooed and comes with a 4 generation pedigree. Together with this pedigree lies the various rabbitry names in the lineage. Not only my reputation is at stake, the reputations of all those names are also at stake.

Take for instance when an idiot (breeder wannabe) buys my rabbit and breeds it into his/her local stocks, I am sure as a marketing strategy, he/she will give the lineage a good mention too either verbally or through their incomplete pedigrees. In so doing, it only tarnishes our reputation and in the long run will hurt really bad.

Bear in mind, Tru-Luv Rabbitry and all other SERIOUS rabbitries only breed for quality. If ever something bad crops up, gone are these names into the dumpster. I believe this is the very reason why most breeders cull their unsatisfactory stocks too.

So here is what you should always look out for. Make sure that the pedigree is complete with 4 generations of rabbits listed and a tattoo on the left ear. These are but a few controls that TLR practices and I hope that no counterfeits are produced out there.

Dear breeders, our reputations are at stake and we cannot control the action of others, but at least take up the responsibility to steer the lost onto the path of righteousness!

Happy New Year everyone & everybun!
