Little Franchescas





Franchesca accomplished a lot on the show table with 20 Best In Show and 9 Reserve In Show, then at 17 months old won the BOV and Best Overall Wool at the ARBA convention.  She was on the Steve Harvey Show and a German TV program. In addition, she has a record that is so unique that an official announcement will be made in September of 2015.

She retired from the show circuit after the ARBA convention, rested for a while then entered the next phase of her life: she became a mother and raised a litter of beautiful bunnies that look just like her.



The four peas in a pod are the little Franchescas.


Aren't they a cute bunch?


Who will be the standout show bunny when they grow up?
