Carol W. Loves Her French Angora Girls

Carol W. has not had bunnies born at her home for years until last November when Betty and her did a co-production and had the bunnies born at her place.

These are still bunnies, if you could call 4-1/4-month-old 8+ pound big girls as bunnies.  They take after their big daddy HGF Jim who is a gentle big boy.    Though they are still juniors by age but they are bumped into the senior class as allowed by the Standard of Perfection. 

Domino the broken black received the BOB award and was the Reserve to Reserve In Show in show B, Honey Bunny the fawn won BOB in show A and show C.  

Carol W. obviously is very happy with her big girls.
