    Hi y'all!

    I wasn't able to make it to the ARBA Convention this year, but did send a pair of Creme d'Argents with a friend. (This is our first National Convention!) She emailed us today with the show results: my intermediate buck placed 3rd / 4 and the intermediate doe placed 6th / 11.

    Ok, ok, so they didn't exactly clean up, but they did do better than I expected (they weren't in prime show condition.). :)

    Here's to next year!

    I raise english spots, great to know there are other fanciers on HT that show at nationals! we didn't go this year, too busy and stuff, but we are planning on going again next year. it's been 3 years since i have personally gone, we have a dear friend who hauls about 50-75 rabbits to and from every year for lots of people around here.

    Oh definitely, I am VERY grateful to Heidi for being willing to do this. She's helped me out so much...even when you're reimbursed, hauling other people's rabbits only adds to the craziness of Convention.

    She has some very nice rabbits herself: mainly Holland Lops and Netherland Dwarfs, but they also have a couple of Silver Fox and other breeds.
