Who Am I?

I am a little choc tort boy, my rabbit mama is Big Times Delilah and my human mama is Maureen.

I am a little tort boy, I am so much more adorable than my choc tort brother though my human mama thinks he is more handsome.

My sister and I look exactly the same, we are two ruby eye white girls.   We are definitely prettier than our stinky brothers!

Fawnica's New Life

Fawnica did well as a show rabbit, even won the colored junior doe class at the ARBA convention.

When Natasha and Fawnica met, it was love at the first sight.

Instead of the show table, now one of Fawnica's playground is Natasha's bed.   It's a far better life to be the only pet to a loving mom who says, " She is an absolute joy in my life!".

 Brock's fawn doe Googily won 4 youth Best In Show during the summer show season; then she retired from the show table and became a mama to 7 bunnies.

Brock is keeping a lovely little black torte junior doe that may even be a little nicer then her mom.

Doggie Passengers

Dogs are not the center of attention at rabbit shows.  These little ones are anxious to go home when the show is getting close to completion.

I am ready, I am ready, let's go home.

Mom, where are you, let's go!

I am here, I am cute, I am better looking than the rabbits.

I am tall enough to see the windshield, would you teach me to drive?

Remember When: The Early Photos of Broken English Angora

The broken English Angora has been trying to gain acceptance into the ARBA Standard of Perfection for a long time.    These are the earliest photos of broken English Angora from the 1980s.   The breeder was Bill Sharp; it is believed that Bill was the first person who created the broken pattern English Angora.  

This picture was taken by Candy Haenszel in the 1987 ARBA convention in Portland where Bill put on this three-fold display.

The first time the broken English Angora passed a presentation was in 1995 convention by Irene Burns of Michigan, see

Unfortunately Irene's second presentation failed and she decided not to continue.

The "Eye" from a Pregnant French Angora

Lindsay hasn't had any new French Angora bunnies for a long time.  She currently has a doe that is expecting.    When checking the doe's progress, Lindsay got an "evil eye" from the doe.

What do you want? You think this is funny?

It hurts to have babies kicking my tummy!

 See what you have done to me!
