I called a show secretary yesterday to ask a few questions about how to get started-- like on a mailing list-- in showing my new herd. Talk about LUCK!!! The woman offered to come to the farm, bring her husband, as they are both JUDGES, and help me evaluate my new herd!!! So, in little over a week, two ARBA judges will be doing a "hands on" on my rabbits. This is so exciting-- never found this type of helpfullness in the dog show world! :dance:

What does one serve rabbit Judges for lunch out in the boonies? Chicken?

Rabbit? :shrug:

:D

Wow, the fact that they were willing to come out and help you is pretty neat! (Sheesh, you normally have to shell out $4 a rabbit or so if you take them to a show.) I'm sure their help will be invaluable!

That's really nice of them! You'll get a lot of benefit, I'm sure. Things are really going well for you in the rabbit department lately. :D

I took it to mean that Rabbitgal was suggesting you feed them rabbit for lunch.

You'll learn a ton. That was real nice of them.

Wow, i dont know how you did it.i have been showing a long time and i have never had a judge come too my house.bluebird
I think they may be interested in seeing a large number of AmChins all in one place--- With the one I got in May, and this herd buyout, I have 4 breeders represented in my barn-- so to speak!!!!

And this is TWO judges-- husband and wife---!!!

Oh Dear-- do you suppose they wil abhor my used cages?

Go buy some $1 silver spray paint, paint all the cages and feeders and they will never know. Take the rabbits and put them in carriers until it is all dry.

How do you think I have new cages all the time? Everyone wants to know why I get rid of the cages before they rust...little do they know...

A good drink of choice makes the time go much quicker, even if it means finding silver spray paint in places it really doesn't belong later on.

Geese. The cure is getting geese. :hobbyhors

Of course, the cure may be worse than the disease... Don't ask me :shrug: because I am in a state of denial. :D

No cure.

It's a permanent condition, rarely fatal. From personal observation, even if circumstances change, the disease itself persists. Rabbits sighted, eyes glaze over.......

Sorry, hon, :shrug: but you needed to be told.

The only thing you can do to combat rabbitosis is to purchase a lagomorph. You know, a cute little something to make yourself feel better.

Think "Warm Fuzzies".

You're welcome.
