Spring Time Brings New Rabbits in the Rabbitry

Spring time is the wonderful time of the year when the world is waking up from a long winter's sleep and we start to see buds on the trees and rose bushes.  We are also beginning to see green peeking up in the lawn in the yard and are watching as the blue birds and robins begin to flit and flutter about.  It is one of my favorite times of the year.

It also comes with new litters of baby rabbits.  Our newest additions to the rabbitry come to us from Roxanne Hanna a fellow red New Zealand breeder who has had some great litters recently and offered us the opportunity to purchase a couple of lovely junior does for our herd.

Burgundy Lace
Our first addition is a little red New Zealand doe who we have named Burgundy Lace.  Born on December 18, 2018 her sire is Rum's Wonka and her dam is Anchors Aweigh Scarlet.  Burgundy Lace is already at junior weight and attended the recent show in Duncan, OK where she took a couple of firsts and a second in her classes.  We are so pleased with this little doe and expect great things for her future.


Our second addition is a little broken red New Zealand doe who we have named Coppertina.  Born on December 21, 2018 her sire is also Rum's Wonka and her dam is Anchors Aweigh Sundara who just had her paperwork sent off for her grand champion certificate.  She is a sweet heart and I am quite often finding my kids with her in their arms getting loved on and petted.  She is also now junior weight and we are looking forward to seeing what the judges think of her at the next show.

A big thank you to Roxanne Hanna.  You raise beautiful rabbits and I couldn't be happier with our newest additions.
