I made it to the meeting place where John and I were going to transfer the AmChins right about 8:30== a half hour before I had figured-- so I sat and ate a light dinner as I waited. I noticed a car pulled over behind me after a while, and took a better look-- OOOPS!!! A cop was involved, and the car's driver was saying something about "license" and showing the cop all kinds of papers-- John showed up about then- and when he let down his tailgate, and then I did the same-- the cops gave us a good long look, especially when John started unloading cages. So two things were happening to draw the attention of passers-by-- the rabbit transfer and the arrests!!! As we lifted cages, the female driver was cuffed-- and her boyfriend was, as well. They were placed in a cruiser, and a tow truck arrived to claim the vehicle they had been in-- John and I removed a widow from my truck cap. He told me a bit about the rabbits-- who the litter dams were, which one was unshowable, one buck had not produced, etc... the cops kept looking at us-- and I guess we provided some entertainment for the couple, as well.
John was upset about ony having 26 animals for me-- he lost one of the juniors to heat in the morning, as well. I told him the lot price was so good, I was not going to ask for a reduction in the cost--- the price I paid was real good-- and one of the does only needs one more leg to GC. So I came away with 8 very mature adults, and 18 juniors.

Now the work begins-- getting these guys all gentled down, tattooed, and shown. :help: With the numbers I am starting out with, I should be able to start selling meat in very short order, and still work on the breed preservation aspect. I guess it is time to eliminate some of the rexes....

Sounds like John is knowledgeable about his herd and an honest straight-shooting kind of person.

So, have you been blowing on their fur to see the little circles of light and dark?

So where were you that you should NOT have been to see this. I would think Youngstown or Niles/Warren?? Maybe Cleveland??
Airport exit of the Ohio Turnpike outside of Toledo!!! I just "knew" those cops were gonna come question us afterwards-- but they didn't-- guess they figured we were just two ol' fogies that were a bit off our rockers-- trading bunnies around like that!!! :p

Nope-- been arranging the rabbit yard!!! I do see the "W" genetics in their coloring-- these guys are a lot darker than Star is. The peach is showing up, and the triangle and tummies are not snow white!! YES!!!
One of the does is missing a toe-- so can't be shown-- but that will not knock her out of the breeding if she will produce for me.

Sunny, days, chaing the clouds awayyy...
