3rd time's a charm

LHHR's Mist At Dawn (*GC 4 legs) had kindled 2 DOA litters (9 and 11 each) and we were rather dissapointed by the 2nd time. After her 2nd DOA litter, we promptly re-bred her to LHHR's Buster Blue , our broken blue buck who was 11th in Michigan! She had 8 babies last week, 7 living. They are all broken blues, who look JUST like mommy and daddy! Now that they are healthy and fat, almost ready to open their eyes, we are proud to announce her success :) She has been getting treats every evening because this is extra nice for us to have a live litter from her.

LHHR's Down in Kokomo *GC 3 legs, 1 BIS is due June 9th to LHHR's Mr. Miami *GC 6 legs. We are hoping to get a nice replacement doe from this litter :)

We will be breeding LHHR's Secret Score *1 leg to LHHR's Lil' Hollister *GC 6 legs after Oregon State Convention. She is getting on the larger side, so despite her nice type and the probability that she would have granded, we are going to go ahead and breed her to replace both her and Hollister.

We will also be breeding the rest of our does in June.

Oregon State Convention entries are coming due soon (the 28th!) Not sure who we will enter as solid junior does... we have 3 of them all different ages.... not sure if we should enter one, two, or all three. Eitherway they are all very nice, just at different stages of development.

I would like to say that LHHR's Lela (Stitch x Cloey) won her 4th leg for BOSV, and LHHR's Oopsie Daisy (Bridget x Drizzt) won her 1st leg for best solid jr doe at Canby!

I know I haven't blogged much. Been very busy, but hopefully in a week or so we'll all be better and get some updates done :P

Yreka Results :) +

Morning starts off well... I clerk for the Satins and the Netherland Dwarfs for Cathy S., anxiously waiting my turn for Mini Lops.

LHHR's Summer Dreamin - BEST OF BREED / RESERVE IN SHOW - 4th leg
LHHR's Boomerang - BOSV - 6th leg
LHHR's Maid Dignified - BOV - 4th leg

registered a couple of rabbits... including a Flemish Giant... which was 15 and a half pounds... but such a sweetie! donated 3 chestnut bucks to the raffle, each went to lovely homes!

Show B finally came around.... they were split between 2 judges / tables but it made it go by faster.

LHHR's Summer Dreamin - BEST OF BREED / HON. MENTION in SHOW - 5th leg
LHHR's Boomerang - BOSB - 7th leg
LHHR's Maid Dignified - BOV - 5th leg
LHHR's Secret Score - BJRdoe - 1st leg!

so overall it was a pretty sweet day, all of my rabbits doing well, equally with animals I have sold doing well.

OHI was 3rd in each of the SSB classes, and I believe Mikayla got 3rd in showmanship with him if I heard correctly. He is such a good little buck, I love my VM's from him!

Velotta's Black Pearl and LHHR's Swimmer produced CHOCOLATES for Lacey / Stacey Jackson.... so jealous! Not to mention did she have beautiful blue and blue steel juniors too....

I spent most of Friday cleaning. My cousin picked up the Smoke Pearl jr. buck for Vanessa... and I weaned Sour Cream's babies off of her, giving them one of the big cages. I bred LHHR's Down in Kokomo to her full brother, LHHR's Mr. Miami. I think this cross will produce excellent results! (Kokomo's 1st litter was DOA)
and Habanero missed to RD's Plank Hero, so she will be bred at the end of next month.

Tomorrow I will continue working on the barn.. and if I get time tonight I might update the website!
