Our Black & Broken New Zealands Have Arrived

Black Doe
Wait until to you see the latest additions to our rabbit family.  It was after giving breeds and purpose a lot of thought and consideration that I came to the conclusion that I just love color.  The white new zealand rabbits didn't have the appeal to the me that the red and the black ones do and the broken ones and I love.

So after looking for breeders and having one come recommended by several different people I made a day trip of it and headed out to Tyler Texas.  It was quite the trip is sprinkling rain and a bunny to pick up and transport for the rabbitry I was was purchasing from along the way, but I made it without much of a problem and was delighted to meet and spend some time with Bonita Hunt at Baileywick Rabbitry.

She talked to me about coat condition and cleaning and how to deal with molting and long trips.  We talked about shows and breeders she knew and groups to join.  Shows that are worth going to, and equipment she loves and can't live without.  I have been so surprised with the entire rabbit community so far.  They seem so willing to share information and to teach, but maybe that is simply because it on a subject that each of us is passionate about and enjoys.  Regardless of the reason I learned a lot that day and brought home four rabbits that I am settling in and joining already.  I am looking forward to breeding and showing them this fall and seeing what the future brings with our our beginning adventures into the rabbity husbandry business.  You will have to forgive the photos since the poor things have brown spots from misters keeping them cool all summer.
