We had a young lilac litter last post. And though I thought I had picked out my two possible keepers, 2 & 3 two little does I really liked. All but one, my last choice #4, had at least one white nail. I took a cute photo of my favorite girl and I "bonding".
After so many DQ'ed babies I sold the sire and all kits but Lionel. Really only keeping him to see how this body shape would turn out. I wish I could have grown them out longer, but I really didn't' think those WHITE nails were going to darken. And even though I really liked the fathers type, I just didn't see myself breeding him to any of my other does and chancing white nails again.... kind of wish I had more space and money so I could have kept them all a few more months.
I have been feeling really iffy about Lionel's type, but his temperament is wonderful! I have "given" him to my little boys, because he seems to be bombproof. He is quiet like his mother, with out being painfully shy. ;)
He was entered at St Helens Frozen Friends show B & C, and got good comments from both judges one giving him Best Jr of Breed ( um think that was out of two....;) But my handsome #3 was very excited his bunnny won a ribbon, and wore his blue ribbon proudly. <3
He is almost a Sr, but before then he will be shown again at Astoria A & B shows! :)
