It feels like it has been forever since I posted, and so much has happened in our little world. Daisy's Lilac Himalayan babies have just kept growing and are all healthy and happy. Here is a quick picture I took of the boys when I was checking gender. Looks to be 3 boys, and 2 girls. :) One of these boys may have a house rabbit home waiting for him.
Our beloved Netherland Dwarf Himi, won his first leg at a specialty show. Best of Group. He is such a cutie, and a ball of sweetness. His Person was pretty darn excited for him. I was most excited (as I always am) about getting my thoughts confirmed. :) Not perfect type but I was thinking he was in great coat condition. It is exciting to know we are learning and getting better, even if our animals are a work in progress.
I spent quite a bit of time writing pedigrees and tattooing for all the babies we had left, which is quite a few. I was pretty nervous about my first tattoos. Though it took a while, they all seemed to turn out ok in the end.
We took 9 juniors down with us to Grants Pass, had to aquire another carrier just to take them all down south. I already had ideas of who was on the bottom and it was great to see I wasn't far off. Go Me! ;) My DD's favorite the little lilac doe went to her new home. :D But the three boys we had for sale are still here with us. The blue and black we have had listed for months plus one chocolate. We should add at least one more buck but I am tempted to watch the rest grow.
We were blessed with a 4 hole hanging cage and promptly moved our breeding bucks outside to enjoy more space and all the wonderful autumn air. We power washed, bleached, scrubbed and rinsed. Later when we move out the juniors we will move the big boys back in and get it repainted and looking nice. (it is now covered over the back half on top and sides so they are happy in all fall weather)
Thanks for reading.
