    I admit it - I show my lionheads. I haven't shown anything else but I may show my French Lop in March....so she can see her original breeders (if they will be there). Her original name was Scar...now it is Beatrice which means "Bringer of Bunny Poops" I think..

    I love the chocolate color - I'm trying to get that in lionheads too...it is pretty rare for this breed (but being developed).

    How do you do at the shows? Any grand champions? Or any BOB or BOS winners?

    (For those who don't show - "BOB" is Best of Breed and "BOS" is Best Opposite Sex (of the BOB winner).

    The Chocolate doe and the REW buck pictured are home bred Grand Champions. My REW Buck pictured (SBR's Bacardi) came soooooo close to winning BOB, the judge went back and forth several times between him and a Castor - but determined the Castor had a touch more depth (though hardly noticeable) and gave it to him instead. She commented that it was a tough decision and was very impressed with both of those rabbits. So far, that was the closest I've gotten to a BOB. I haven't had any BOSB wins as of yet either.

    When I do show (I'm currently in the middle of a10 month break due to the new baby), I typically place in the top of the class. With my Lynx, I was holding the #1 spot in Sweepstakes points, but then I stopped showing in June and finished the year at #10.

    This year I haven't shown yet... I'll be kicking off my show year at the end of April by debuting my new show string at Mini Rex Nationals. *Crossing my fingers* that the judges think my new Jr's (will be Sr's for show) are as good as Ibelieve they are.

    Most of my new show string can be seen here: http://www.sunniebunnierabbitry.com/Jrs.html

    (SBR's Abstract, SBR's Coffee Cream, SBR's Waiting List, & SBR's Brooke will all be going to National's)

    and the older one's are already Sr's, so they're on the Bucks & Does pages - SBR's Gerard, SBR's Luke, SBR's Made Just 4U, and SBR's Bridgette (all Lynx, will also be going to Nationals).

    I would... if my buns were purebred, which they're not. Oh well, maybe eventually...

    You do not have to have purebred buns to show them. You do to register them for Grand Champions and stuff...but you can still show a non-purebred bun!

    I am getting started showing my rabbits. I have shown my Mini Rex once so far, and on the 19th I will be showing some of my Mini Rex, including one of my own breeding for the first time. I will also be showing my Flemish for the first time, all of which are my own breeding. Wish me luck, guys, I am sooo looking forward to this!

    That is so exciting - we may be going to a show on the 18th of this month. In December, I took Best of Breed with one of my own breedings - that was such a GREAT feeling.....there is nothing like it. The funny thing is that I almost didn't enter the rabbit.

    Keep us updated on how you do.

    No worries, Tiny's Mom, if I win anything I will be on here jumping up and down with joy! LOL Man, I can't wait to see what Sally's babies are like when they get bigger. You know, out of a breeding of two light greys, Sally and Ben, I was expecting all light greys, right? Nope! She had two light greys, two whites, and one BLACK! Now where did that come from? LOL
