Hello everyone. :) Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been really busy, and I haven't had the time to post anything. I'll just update you on everything that's happened.

We went to the harford county farm fair last week. We had a great time, and we did really good. :D  I brought Mosue, Cheese, Keith Moon, and Ringo Starr. Here's how they did:
-----------------------------------
FLEMISH GIANTS:

MB (Mouse) - BOB (Best of Breed)
CHEESE ( Cheese) - BOB (Best opposite of Breed)
KB (Kieth Moon) - Second out of 2 (He got beat by Cheese.)
FGB1 (Ringo Starr) - First out of 1
-----------------------------------


We sold Keith Moon to a nice loving family. :)


We just bred Twilight to Cheese and Pepper to Mouse. Hopefully we'll have babies in a month! If so, we'll have babies for sale in December. :D

I gotta go!

I found an old video and decided to post it.  This is Twilight and her babies fighting over the water bottles, even though there's four!  Everyone still got something to drink eventually. ^-^
 
 
YAWN..... Good morning everyone. I just woke up, and I was so worn out. We went to the Charles Town rabbit show last night, and we didn't get back until midnight. It was a 2 hour drive, and we were at the show for at least four hours.We did have a good time though. ^-^ We sold Flopsy to a little girl atthe show, and we had a couple people that were interested in buying our rabbits too. We did ok at the show, but we didn't get show cards, so I can't tell you how we did, except that Twlight got BOV(Best Of Variety). ^-^ While we were at the show, we celebrated my friend's birthday. Her birthday was last week, but still, we celebrated it. ^-^

Yay! Our new rabbit cages are almost done!!! All we have to do is add shingles, move them into place, and put rabbits in them! I got to pick out the color that we painted it, and I chose a dark green. Here, I'll post some pictures of one of them. ^-^ We are thinking about making cages to sell to people, but I have to talk about it some more with my dad. E-mail or comment if you are interested! The more people that are interested, the more likely he will sell them!

Ok, I've got to go check on the rabbits. Bye!

Sorry this is sideways. ^-^

The cages also have side doors that open and close so they can get fresh air.

This is one cage. It is four feet wide and 18 inches tall.
 
 
Sorry I haven't blogged in a while. I've got a lot of school work to do, and recently I have had limited computer access since my mom got a new one. We are still trying to hook up her old one so I can use it. ^-^ We haven't done much though. We gave Pete to our neighbor because she really wanted a Flemish, and now he's living in this big cage with a little Polish-mix as his neighbor. ^-^ We are also building 2 new cages! They are gifts from my dad because I got an award at school. ^-^ Here, I'll post some pictures of them. They aren't done yet, but they will be soon!

We just used the cages to store our tools while we worked.

Sorry it's sideways. This is one of the cages. We are building 2 identicle ones. They are Three cages high, Four feet wide, and about 54 inches tall.
 
 
Yay! I now have 2 Big Friendly Giants Rabbitry VIDEOS!!! They will be located on the front page and right here. Please watch them!!!

Hello again! I just got back from the Baltimore Howard rabbit show. We did ok, but not excelent. We showed Lilly and Twiling for the first time since November, and they did really good! Here are the results below:

Light gray Junior Bucks:
FGBI (Ringo Starr) - 2nd out of 4
FGB2 (Pete Townsend) - placed 3rd out of 4

Light gray Junior Does:
FGB3 (Sweet Pea) - Placed 5th out of 5
FGB4 (Houdini) - placed 4th out of 5

Steel Senior Does:
LB (Lilly) - BOV (Best of variety)

Black Senior Does:
TB (Twilight) - BOV (Best of Variety)

The Juniors just had a bad day and couldn't beat the competition. (Then again, the competition was REALLY good.) The Seniors, on the other hand, had a great day! Both of the sisters got BOV (Best Of Variety). Some more good news is that Flopsy will now be for sale. Her tooth has compleatly healed, and she is looking for a good home!!!

I was looking around my house, and I happened to find something. My old SD card! On that card, I have so many bunnie pictures, including two videos. One video is of Smudge and her babies. The other one is very important to me, and that is a video of Lulu, two days before she passed away...

Below I will have some of the pics I took at the show, along with some of the ones on my old SD card. Feel free to look at them when I post them!

In about six and a half hours, I will be going to the Baltimore Howard Rabbit show, but I can't sleep!!! I'll just post some pictures that I found lying around on the computer. :)  Wish me luck at the show tommorow.

I just got back about an 2 hours ago from the Wills fair. We did really good, and we had a lot of fun talking to all of he other rabbit breeders. Below are the results:

Light gray Junior Bucks:
FGBI (Ringo Starr) - 1st out of 2
FGB2 (Pete Townsend) - placed 2nd out of 2

Light gray Junior Does:
FGB3 (Sweet Pea) - Placed 2nd out of 5
FGB4 (Houdini) - placed 1st out of 5

Light gray Senior Bucks:
Cheese (Cheese) - placed 1st out of 4,
BOV(Best of variety), BOS (Best opposite sex)

It was nice to have some good luck at this show since we didn't do as well at the Gaithersburg show. Mr. Cheese did really well, winning Best of Variety and Best Opposite Sex. The only rabbit that beat him was a big sandy Flemish giant Doe, whe went on to win Best Opposite Show. While we were there, we looked around at the other animals, like the ducks, chickens, cows, goats, sheep, and even dogs. ^-^ 

My friend did the best, winning BIS (Best in show) and 2nd Reserve! The rabbit that won Best In Show was a little Otter Mini Rex Buck named Opie, and the rabbit that won 2nd reserve was a little Red New Zealend. The rabbit that won BOS (Best opposite show) was a big Sandy Flemish Giant Doe owned by another one of my friends. ^-^

Now we have one more rabbit show coming up on the 22nd of May, which is the Baltimore Howard show. After that, we'll have a little break from rabbit shows. We are really trying to sell rabbits, so if you think you might be interested in owning a Big Friendly Giant, please comment or send me an E-mail! You could even meet us at the rabbit show to pick one up or look at the ones for sale.

I've got to go now! Please feel free to look at the pictures below or comment. ^-^

Ok, so I just got back today form the Gaithersburg rabbit show, and we did ok. It was a 2 part, all day show. Here are the results:

Show 1 :
FGB1 (Ringo starr) - Placed 3rd out of 5
FGB2 (Pete Townsend) - placed 5th out of 5
FGB3 (Sweet Pea) - placed 8th out of 11
FGB4 (Houdini) - placed 6th out of 11
FGB5 (Flopsy) - DQ ( Chipped tooth)

Show 2:
FGBI (Ringo Starr) - 1st out of 5
FGB2 (Pete Townsend) - placed 4th out of 5
FGB3 (Sweet Pea) - 8th out of 10
FGB4 (Houdini) - placed 5th out of 10
Cheese (Cheese) - placed 3rd out of 5
MB (Mouse) - Placed 2nd out of 5

So we did about average at the rabbit show this weekend. The first judge found out that Flopsy has a chipped tooth from chewing on the wire of her cage. We are going to keep her home for the next 2 shows so she has time to recover. The tooth should grow back, and then we'll be able to begin showing her again. Below are some picture at the show. Well, now we have to start getting ready for next weeks show! I'll write again soon!

For the next couple weekends, we will be going to several different rabbit shows. On May 8th we will be going to the Gaithersburg rabbit show. Then on May 15th we will be going to the Will's fair. Finally, we will be going to the Baltimore and Howard rabbit show on May 22nd. We will probably be bringing Mac, Cheese, Sweet pea, Ringo, Pete, Houdini, and Flopsy. All of the rabbit's were bringing will be for sale except Cheese and Sweet pea, so if you are interested you will be able to see us at the shows. :)

I can't wait because it will be the babies first show! I really hope that Sweet Pea and Pete do good. They were my favorites of the litter, and both of them have nice heads and bodies.

On a sad note, Checkers passed away. She was about 4 years old and died a week after her birthday...

Well, thats about all I have for now. If you would like to comment, please feel free to!  ^_^
