8/30 FMR2 (has been named FR Lilique) had 7 of FR Benjamin’s kits

They are so cute!

The end of October, we fed them for 2 days. We went up to water them, but the next day, 4 of these kits had died. The rest of them have big bellies, so we're giving them Sulmet.

2/26/12 Took FL2 to King’s Auction. She was shown in the Rochester Show as a Sr because of her weight, and she did poorly. Philip Nesbit bought her, along with a lilac buck and another lilac doe…neither of which I can get to breed. I hope he has better luck with them.

4/28 Lilac Buck #FL1 won BOV in show A & BOSV in show B in Palmyra.

8/27/11, NYS Fair Old Timers Show

The NYS Fair is almost 2 weeks long, & the rabbits stay the duration. The show is usually held on Saturday & Sunday, but since Hurricane Irene was expected on Sunday, all the rabbits were judged on Saturday, & cavies were judged on Sunday.

Mary’s American chin Jr Buck (#F2LI3) won Best of Breed!

FR Tender Trap (FSB7) won Best of Variety for Lilac MiniRex.

All the rabbits were sold by the end of the show, so no pictures were taken.

8/23/11, FR Sandy had 7 of Dad’s Fawn Buck’s kits.

Seven! Wow!!

11/2, Marcea Coffer purchased the lilac buck for her granddaughter’s birthday. Her Granddaughter’s name is Reese, so the buck is named “Reese’s Bunny”.

1/8/12 Took GEFR Laura, FSD4, to the Rochester show. She won BIC (MiniRex Lilac Jr Doe) in both shows (Open & Specialty).

1/30/12 Sold FR Hershey’s Bunny (FSD2) to Denise Miles in Frankfort.

4/28 FR Laura (#FSD4) won BOSV in Show A & BOV in show B at Palmyra.

8/16/11 Open Rabbit Show at the Herkimer County Fair

I won Best in Show with F2B1, Blue MiniRex Buck! He has since been registered as FR Blue Lei.

Mary’s entered American chins. They received:

Jr Doe FS4 won BOB. She has since been named FR Trillium, & moved to Oregon.
Jr Buck FS1 won BOS. He has since been named FR Wakerobin.

The MiniRex that received Blue Ribbons were:

Black MR Sr Doe (F11) - Her age was Jr, but her weight was Sr.
FR GEF Tender Trap (FSB7) - Lilac MR Sr Buck. He was sold to Frasier's, so I didn't get a picture.
Black Otter MR Jr Buck (F13)
Blue Otter MR Jr Doe (F14) - She has since been sold.

8/16 FR Bitzi (FCC4) had 6 of Benjamin’s (F2CC3) kits

Hopefully she’ll take care of them this time, since I have no one to foster them to.

Fostered 2 of these to Sam’s Choice Scaramunda, she kindled a couple days later.

1/8/12 GEFR Miss Kim (F2BB2) & GEFR Ludwig Spaeth (F2BB3) competed in the Rochester Shows. GEFR Miss Kim won BIC (Blue Jr Doe) in the Open, and GEFR Ludwig Spaeth won BIC (Blue Jr Doe) in the Specialty.

1/12/12 F2BB5 was sold to Connie Frasier. She helped me out in the barn, so I gave her a greatly reduced price. She named F2BB5 FR Lilac. So these bunnies are named after lilacs.

2/26/12 Took CAFR Beauty of Moscow (F2BB4) & CAFR Bloomerang (F2BB6) to King’s Auction. F2BB4 was shown in the Rochester shows. She had to be shown as a Sr because of her weight, and even so, she came in last place in her class in both shows. F2BB6 was also overweight for her age.

4/25 Laurie purchased CAFR Ludwig Spaeth (#F2BB3) for her son, Samuel. Laurie had me mate Ludwig Spaeth with Family Pride’s TKK Canadian Lilac.

8/8/11 DA Cloudy had 2 of Young's Indiana Thornton's kits, 1 died

Since it was alone, we tried fostering it to Red Pepper, but it was dead on the morrow.

8/5/11 Lilac Doe F2CH2 had 3 of Mocha's kits, 2 died :(

Since there was only 1 left, it was fostered overnight. The next day there was another kit in her cage, so she was given a nestbox with her 2 kits. Both of them died. :(

This was her first litter, so catastrophy is somewhat expected.
