    Silver Martens

    Hey everyone! I haven't been on in awhile! I've decided to sell out of my beloved Tans for the time being but plan on getting them again some day. They'll always be my very very favorite. In the meantime, I've picked up my new "main" breed which is Silver Martens! I also do English Spots and...

    New Breed - need advice!

    I've decided to cut way back on my Tans for the time being so I wanted to get into another breed. I've only done running breeds so I don't know much about the other body types and really want to learn. I had always wanted to do Silver Martens but I really don't have the room for big rabbits. I...

    English spots!

    Well, I did it! I got some English Spots and I am absolutely LOVING the breed. I already love the running breeds (made apparent by my love of Tans) so I decided to start in on English Spots as well as a "small" side project. At the KY cup I bought four English spots, 2 does being already bred...

    I couldn't help it....

    I'm going to be picking up some spots! I really wanted to steer clear of the breed due to some "Drama-creating" members of the Tan club heading that way but...I've loved them for years and found someone who was willing to sell me an incredible doe bred to an incredible buck. :) I'll be getting...

    How old is too old for first litter?

    I recently adopted a Holland Lop (pet) rabbit and I was told that the original owners had given her up because she was too old to have a first litter and had never been bred. It just made me curious as to know what's the longest anyone would wait for their rabbit to have their first litter? At...

    Frustrated!!

    Blarg! I've had such a crummy winter in regards to breeding this year. NONE of my does got pregnant (even some of my "never-missers") this winter. Our first Big show here in Michigan is at the very beginning of March and I've got nothing to show for it. No baby Tans to take at all. :( I'm...

    Rabbit Paralyzed at Vet Office - need help. - RIP

    Age: ~ 7 Months Weight: ~4lbs Gender: Buck Breed: Tan Diet: Lots of Hay, Pellets and occasional veggies I took my Tan buck in to a well-known rabbit friendly clinic on Tuesday for a minor issue. He had a small sore on his foot after a tussle with a rabbit in a neighboring cage and I just wanted...

    What breed(s) was Darwin?

    Back in college I used to have a bunny named Darwin. I really loved this rabbit and I know that most "pet" rabbits have tons in their background but can anyone guess as to what he might have been comprised of? Unfortunately, my boyfriend at the time that I was living with got "sick of him"...

    Suggestions on another breed?

    I'm looking to get into another breed but I would like to get suggestions from all of you! Right now I only have Tans, but I'm looking for a smaller laid back compact type breed as a small side project. I'd prefer for them to not go over 7lbs or so since I unfortunately have pretty limited...

    Tattooing

    I just can NOT seem to be able to tattoo my rabbits. I wrap them up tight into a little bunny burrito but they ALWAYS seem to be able to squirm out! They also begin to shake their heads, even only a small amount, and it messes me up. I've tried it where my husband is holding the rabbit and I...

    My Tans!

    I figured that I'd make a thread to showcase some of my Tans. They are currently my only breed, but I am planning on picking up some black and fawn Silvers at Convention in October. Here's my first lilac doe. I think she's got fairly nice coloring and I like her nice wide chest! I'm still new...

    Getting some Beveren!

    I already have my Tans that I absolutely adore but this coming April I will be picking up a trio of Beveren in Indiana (headed down there for Tan Nationals) :) There really don't seem to be any breeders in my state which can certainly pose a problem, but I'm hoping that if I get some flashy blue...

    Tan Babies!

    My one doe (who I was fairly sure was pregnant) turns out....WAS pregnant. I'm so happy :) Since this is her first litter I'm trying to prepare myself that something technically COULD go wrong, but she's been a great mama so far. Their bellies SEEM nice and full, and when I uncover the nest...

    Pre-show rituals

    I was wondering what everyone's pre-show rituals are? When do you trim toenails? When do you start feeding a conditioner, such as calf-manna, or Show Bloom? When do you start really grooming them thoroughly? I was planning on trimming my rabbit's nails 2 weeks beforehand, and also start really...

    Palpating a rabbit

    I bred my does on Oct 10th and 13th, respectively. I tried both on the 10th, but my other doe absolutely refused, so I tried a few days later. Both does were only bred once (really didn't want to traumatize them) but each time I *think* that they lifted their tails and there was contact. Now...

    Oh the weather outside is frightful...

    Pardon me, but this is going to be a bit long! As the Starks like to say (Game of Thrones) "Winter is coming." In beautiful Northern Michigan, it seems to be coming much more quickly than normal. My concern for the well-being of my buns is growing. This is my first year breeding/showing Tans...

    Cuddle bunny?

    I have Tans, and they're obviously not a cuddly breed and that's perfectly fine with me. I love that they're active and enjoy moving around, I think it's great! However, I was wondering if there were any breeds of rabbits that would be more comfortable sitting/laying on your lap? I've heard...

    Sun-bleached hay

    Let me tell you, I'm not a farm girl, hehe. I've didn't grow up on a farm, so I'm really unsure of what hay is *supposed* to look like other than the stuff you buy in bags from Petsmart. Yesterday my husband and I went to the local feed store and bought a small bale of hay. This is the first...

    First Show

    Hello everyone! I'll be heading to my first rabbit show on September 17th, and I am truly excited. I've put a few years of research and planning into this, so it's not something that I'm going in to on a whim. Unfortunately, I was never able to show through 4-h, so I'm going at the age of 25...
