Casey's Nola has had a wonderful show career with 19 Grand Champion legs. She won Best of Variety Color Sr Doe again at her last show in Red Bluff. She has 3 Best of Breed, 9 Best of Variety wins. Including Best of Variety at the ARBA convention this year (very exciting) and 10 1st place Color Jr Doe. So it is time to cut off her coat and have my patented pineapple cut :). They look like a pineapple when I'm done . There really is a bunny under all the wool. We get asked that question all the time at shows. So I hope Nola will enjoy being cut down and have some babies soon.
Here are the two coats or fleeces from Nola and Fawnton. I beautiful fluffy cloud of wool. A show coat is so wonderful about 10 inches on these coats. Crazy long. You only need wool about 3 inches to make lovely yarn. Non show bunnies get cut down about every 3 months to produce lovely wool. Show coats are a lot of work but so lovely...Nola is the tort on the left and Fawnton is the Fawn on the right. White cat in the middle who is always helping me with spinning and yarn.
Fawnton a beautiful Fawn buck that was breed by Betty came to live with me a month or so before Convention. He did great there and has done fine on the show tables. It is time to take off his coat and enjoy the lightness. Hopefully he will be a Papa as well.
Here are some wonderful baby pictures. Lovely Black, White and Fawn or Cream. They are from my Really Red Line so they all carry the rufus. I just love the babies. For trust in advertising they are in a Cuties box ;)
