Two new litters born today, first is a lovely litter from smokey (smoke pearl doe) to apollo (white pearl) shes been a great mum but protective so i havent had a peek yet, but expecting whites and fingers crossed smokes.Cookie also produced three beautiful black and white babies to darcy, there is one nicely marked butterfly in there and two very cute ones, so i cant wait to see how their type develops.
Zulu my beautiful little APH girl has left home today and gone for a 'dirty holiday' visit spike the hedgehog, if all goes well we may experience the pitta patter of little hedgehog feet in the not too distant future.
An incredibly busy show today and a tiring day on the touch and feel table, the rabbits did well too, with both my u/5 sables placing well in their class and aramis my siamese smoke buck winning his class and taking the AOV cc out of 5, a really nice achievement to see my smokes start placing over other breeds, i didnt think we'd ever get there, he did me proud by also placing well in the challenge, sadly he only managed 4th so stayed out of the cards, but i was proud of him.
Sadly today my beautiful little boy casper passed away, he had been ill for some time and we knew it was comming but it was still a very sad event. He was the last youngster off jasper and will be terribly missed, night night my little cuddle bun XX
We attended stanhope show, didnt expect to do very well, but came away with a 2nd place sable ticket, 2nd AOV and best of breed satin with magic, a really enjoyable day stewarding on the fancy table under derek medlock.
A nice day out at wolsingham, a great day with good friends and a nice birthday cake ;), all in all we didnt do too badly, earning a sable cc with saga and placing 2nd U16 sable with kelda. Porthos came 3rd in the biggest aov class ive ever seen (16!! u5s) so i was really pleased with him.
