Dumb Rooster? Dumb Squirrel?

Betty's trap has had a lot of visitors: 12 raccoons, 9 possums, 3 skunks, and 2 dumb cats, ...

One morning, there were loud noises from the direction of the trap. Guess what? Neighbor's banty rooster was in the trap screaming bloody murder!

A few mornings later, a squirrel was in the trap doing the Spider Man trick, hanging upside down and going sideways, ...

What a productive trap.

At the top, Caley and Jessica from Ontario, Canada won Best Opposite Sex with fawn buck Chu's Above and Beyond. We have seen Above and Beyond's brother and sisters, Chu's Fawntana and Chu's Fawntasia, on our blog many times. Now we got the chance to see Above and Beyond shine.

The second photo shows a beautiful tort junior doe Bbeary's Fantasia that Caley and Jessica bred. She won the Best of Variety colored at the Ohio State Convention. This little doe's mom is Chu's Cupid Took Aim. At a very young age, Fantasia has already won four legs including Best of Breed wins.

Congratulations to Caley and Jessica for a job well done.

Scenes From The Show

The fun thing in rabbit shows is to chat with those who have a like mind. The top photo was taken at the BVRA show in Stockton. From left to right are judge Melissa,  judge Cathy and Jennie. It was toward the end of the day, most of the breeds were done judging and they were having a relaxed moment.

Three little girls were playing with their Holland Lop in the toy shopping cart. A cute moment was recorded in picture number 2.

It is hard to keep the diehard rabbit lovers from rabbit shows. In the third photo, young mother Lisa took her 6-week-old baby to the show. She said this was not even the first show for the infant; the baby was in show within three weeks of birth. Lisa is a Jersey Wooly breeder.
