Clipping bunnies

Well at least I'm trying to anyway. I did get started on Tannis, my chestnut agouti German buck. I will post a photo of him when I get him done. Tannis is got a buck head. Nice big and ears well set. He produces a nice fleece with plenty of crimp and nice banding pattern. His mom was a 98.5% German, same color as him and his sire was 100% old line German. Haven't weighed him but I'll put an update in later when I get a photo. He's got a good temperment and does very well for shearing. I'm always picking on him for his one flaw... he gets a really dirty butt. So he is handled more than most. He's quite the gentleman about it though.

Back to blogging

Well I hope that to be true! I am going to try to blog at least once a week. Steve finally got a job and we are on the road to recovery of our finances. We were not that bad even though we need to play catch up on some things. I think I am going to showcase my angoras and post a photo of them and write a little paragraph about them. I only have eight. I will be getting Simi started, our Medicine Hat paint, and he is now for sale if anyone is interested. I will be posting his progress as I start him under saddle. He is going to be quite a jumper but I will not even think about that till he is much older. Once he has found his perfect partner and new home we are going to move the rabbits to his stall in the barn. We have decided that two horses are all we need and we are going to keep from getting anymore unless someone needs a horse started out or needs work put on one. The value with that is it goes back home!
