Kate's 21st Birthday

For a rabbit breeder, there is no better place to celebrate the 21st birthday than in a rabbit show.

Kate is celebrating her 21st birthday during the Grand National Livestock show with the people who she likes and the rabbits that she loves.

What else would be better to decorate Kate's birthday cake but a rabbit?

All the carrots Kate and her rabbits would enjoy.

Mama Lois arranged the birthday celebration and designed the cakes. Mama certainly knows her daughter well.

It's the show time: the Boer goats are lining up. The judge checks each show goat.
