    Ok, first-what is a fur class? Are they separated by breed, like regular classes?

    Second-Is it possible for a doe who has had a litter or two, but is still young, to get back into shape for show? And how would you do that?

    Ok, so I guess that turned out to be more like four questions- oops!
    :D

    Any breed can show in their own breed fur/wool class. It is a separate entry fee and separate remark card filled out (circle "fur"). The rabbit must be entered in the regular breed show to be entered in breed fur (held after breed judging). No legs for fur class. (Judged on fur only) Any rabbit that was DQ'd in breed class cannot be shown in fur class.

    The commercial fur classes are for flyback coats only. (See pg. 22 of the new SOP)

    Yes, some does can maintain their condition after breeding and still show well. It's much harder to get a doe back into show condition if she has lost condition from breeding. Some does maintain their condition well.

    It's very possible your doe will still be in condition to show.

    My mini rex doewon her grand champion leg after a litter of kits.

    So I guess you never know!

    Good luck!:bunnydance::D
