A few Mini Lops for sale

I have 4 Mini Lops --possibly 5 for sale. Priced to sell!

One is a senior doe (Pickles) and a 2 or 3 junior bucks & a junior doe -- from the Milkhouse's Sneakin (brother to Smackin) and LHHR's Tomato (Twitch x Brianna) litter. Sneakin' is out of Harmon's Murphy, the BOS ARBA conv winner. The type was complementary and looks to have worked out well; the lineage is a complete outcross.

The litter of 4 was VERY consistent and look great, and where I tried to find one to cull -- I couldn't; so I retained them to try to place them in great show homes! Short, deep & wides with excellent heads coming! Due to their current transition period, they are a bit soft; but hopefully by the December shows they will be ready to hit the tables (~4.5 months).

The website & facebook has been updated with some photos; though better ones are to come.

They can be delivered to Enumclaw & Monroe (possible transport fee req'd), or to Red Bluff, CA. Also a trip to Ft Collins, Colorado is in order in December as well. Please e-mail me for any of these transport opportunities and/or about the juniors. :)

I can't believe it's been over a month since I last blogged!
Simple answer, I've just been crazy busy!

RVRF show on 9/24. Nicole came down & she kicked butt. I gave her back Lincoln and she went home with Sergio and Kaylee. I received Nell, haven't decided who I will breed her to yet, but time will tell.
Bacardi won Best of Breed for his 3rd & granding leg! My first GC marten!
Also at that show, I came home with my Silver Marten Satin doe, CC.

Kennewick was on 10/15. The only bright things at the show were Sara & her family, Lisa & Diane to talk to. Talk about being glared at all around the show room, what a creepy feeling. Certainly other breeders must get lives! I met up with Maryann Preston and picked up my Martens. 4 does, 2 bucks. There are 4 GC's and the other 2 are registered. Very nice animals. I took them home on Thursday.

Dropped off my convention rabbits on Saturday morning; all 12 of them.

I will get back to breeding hopefully next week. Since their are a lack of shows soon, I will have to get these does into production! With feed now costing $19.50 a bag... there will certainly be some changes involved. Raising a meat breed is so much more promising than a fancy breed with prices this high.
