2018!

by Lindsey on 01/09/18

Hi Everyone!

Wow!  It's been way too long since I gave y'all an update!  First of all HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I hope its off to a great start for you!

Between trying to keep all the bunnies warm, the breed pages updated with current pictures and information, and all the other things in life I've been busy! But I want to share with y'all current litter plans and my new Beveren litter!

As some of you may know, I have had a very difficult time getting live babies from sisters Beverly and Whitney.  I still have not got babies from Whitney, but I got a BEAUTIFUL litter of three from Beverly!  They were born 2 days before Christmas and have been in the house to protect them from the brutally cold weather we've had the last couple weeks. They are now two weeks old, and weigh nearly a pound each! I am so exited!  And so is Beverly, she absolutely loves them! As all rabbit breeders know most mother rabbits only spend a few minutes a day grooming and feeding their babies.  Not Beverly!  She is taking them very seriously, and seems to be constantly grooming or feeding them!  It has been very interesting to watch her, because this is something I have never seen before and may never see again. Here is a picture of them, they have already grown a lot but it gives you an idea of how chubby and sleepy they are.

I also have some sad news, I lost my Chocolate Dutch litter and both my American litters I was greatly looking forward to.  But they were first time moms, so I am trying again and hoping for better results this time!

And here are litter plans:

House of Blues' Junie (Blue American) x SLG Howdy (Blue American). Due 1-12-18

Dirty Creek's Scratchy (Golden Palomino) x Ozarkansas' Kyle (Golden Palomino). Due 1-12-18

SLG Bright Eye (Blue American) x House of Blues' Aran (Blue American). Due 1-30-18. Note: Aran belongs to House of Blues Rabbitry and half of this litter will also belong to House of Blues Rabbitry.

3 W's Sapphire (Blue American) x SLG Howdy (Blue American). Due 2-3-18

3 W's Destiny (White American) x House of Blues' Storm (Blue American). Due 2-3-18

Ozarkansas' Miss. Coconut (Chocolate Dutch) x Bergene's Hershey (Chocolate Dutch). Due 2-3-18.

Thanks for reading, and I'll try to write again soon!

Kelley Animal Services & Academy

by Lindsey on 12/18/17

Hi Everyone!

This isn't the kind of blog post I normally post, but I just wanted to give a big shout out to my friend Jessica with Kelley Animal Services & Academy!  If you are in Carrol, Madison, Washington, or Benton county in Arkansas I highly recommend them!  As some of my fellow rabbit raisers may know it can be hard to find someone to take care of your rabbits and other critters if you are out of town for a few days.  If you need someone for the job they would love to do it for you!  They also specialize in in home grooming for dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, and mini pigs.  And offer hoof trimming for sheep and goats and basic obedience training for dogs.  Whether your furry friends need a hair trim, or you need someone to care for your farm over the weekend don't hesitate to contact them!   https://m.facebook.com/kelleygroomingservices/

Thanks for reading!

Rabbit Transport!

by Lindsey on 12/14/17

Hello Everyone! 
I hope you and your bunnies are doing great!  Tonight I am going to reveal my other exciting announcement!  And as hinted in my previous post, this is for my far away readers!  I have had a lot of people from out of state contact me over the last two months interested in buying rabbits from me!  I am eager to send my stock out to other parts of the country so others can enjoy our beautiful rare breeds, but had yet to find a transporter, who is reasonably flexible, has a good reputation, and wouldn't cost my buyers a fortune.  Guess what?  I found one!  Julie at Six Gun Rabbit Transport is based out of Arizona, runs a slightly different route as often as once a month, and only costs $25 per hole!  So if you were considering getting rabbits from me, but you had no idea how you would get them to you let me know!  I can put you in contact with Julie and we can make it happen! 
Thanks for reading, and hope to hear from you soon!

Northwest Arkansas Rabbit Breeders Association

by Lindsey on 12/12/17

Hey Everyone!

So last post I mentioned I would have some exciting announcements, and now I'm going to uncover one of them!  This announcement is mostly just for those of you who are local to Northwest Arkansas, but to all of my far away readers don't you worry the next announcement is for you!

If you have raised rabbits in NW Arkansas for very long you may have realized we have no American Rabbit Breeders Association affiliated clubs or shows.  This can be discouraging for those of us who are raising purebred rabbits and are eager to get them on the show table, because we have to travel a long ways for shows and don't have a lot of ways to connect with local breeders.  For the last 6 months I have been working along side fellow rabbit breeders in NW Arkansas to make a club possible.  We now officially have our charter and will be accepting new members in 2018!  If you breed, show, own, or are even just interested in purebred rabbits we would love to have you join!  Please like our Facebook page for more information, and if you are interested in joining please message us!

Thanks for reading!  I hope to see some new faces in the club soon!
