Carol's Office Mates

Carol says,  I am still working, just that I'm working from home.  I do miss the social contacts of my colleagues, but ….

… I do have a hardworking officemate keeping me company, and ...

… another not so hardworking one handing around.

Safety Face Masks

It's important to wear face masks when we go out to keep ourselves safe and others safe.

During this difficult time, it is also important to leave the medical grade face masks for the front line workers to use.   Talented rabbit daddy Albert made these masks for mama Betty and himself to use when it's necessary to go to grocery and feed stores.

Quinzanne Gets a Salon Treatment

Quinzanne has a decent coat for showing but …  as we all know there is no show in the near future.   

It's hard to make that first cut but as soon as that cut is made, the rest is a breeze.

Pretty round body is under all that wool.

Nice width and depth too.

Do I look like a butterfly?

Whichever angle you want to look at me, I am still a beauty.

Low Maintenance English Angora

Following Debbie's lead, English Angora breeders are getting into the low maintenance line.  Here are 9 English Angora buns in the litter that require very little grooming.  No daily blowing needed, just a soft brush on their furnishings will be all the work needed.

Eva, the First Best In Show Satin Angora

Eva is the first Best In Show Satin Angora in the Northern California/Nevada area, Casey is the proud mama.   

Eva won a Reserve In Show on February 29, then a Best In Show on March 14, and at the height of her winning streak, the world went crazy.  All shows are cancelled, we are all ordered to stay at home.

How long will Eva have to wait to go on the show table again?  No one knows.  

Eva being cut down?  Will mama Casey do it?

We are like Brothers

We are cute little English Angora boys.  We are like brothers, but not quite.  

We love each other but my mom is better than your mom.   Nope, my mom is better than yours.

My mom is Fawnalisa, the BOB of the 2017 ARBA convention.

My mom is Annisha, the 7-time Best In Show winner and the English Angora 2018-2019 Rabbit of the Year winner. 

Who's that between us?  He does not look like us but we love him too.

I don't speak English, I speak French but I love my English mom and my English brothers.   My mom is Indigo Girl, who is great too, she is at the first place of the current French Angora Rabbit of the Year competition.   The only bad thing is that my brothers and sisters are all bigger and stronger than I, it's very kind of my English mom to have taken me in, I love my English mom and English brothers.

Little Sisters Hiding in Nestbox

We are itty bitty English Angora sisters.

I heard mama said something called "Shelter in Place".  We are sheltering inside our nestbox.

My sister is very shy, she is in the back.

I am sheltering her.

What happened?  Where is my big sister?
