1992 our daughter was 7 years old, she was very shy and not very outgoing.So my bright idea was to pick up a bunny at a yard
sale and get her into 4-H.....Ha Ha Ha, it was a Dwarf Hotot that had many DQ's, so we talked with her 4-H leader and her
first bunny was a Jersey Wooly. Did pretty good with it as I recall.
Then she moved up to the Netherland Dwarfs, OH MY,
what that first dwarf looked like. Would not even make it now in our barn as a good brood doe, and it was a buck.
moved on we let her get some does and start breeding. Vicki Isbell helped us out with a good start with two bucks and two
Over the years she started moving on from 4-H to youth shows and then onto open shows. At the age of 13 she started
not showing as much interrest in the bunnies so we both will work on them together and only start showing in the open shows
as of the middle of 2001.
Our first ANDRC National show was in Tuzon Arizona and made us take our first plane ride ever,
and the best part was we were hooked from then on to attend as many national shows as we could.
It has now became a Mother
and Daughter duo and looking to only get better and better with the years to come.....
we can do as well as we have with the start we had, you can do it. Trust me this poor buck would never have lasted in our
barn even if he was a doe now. He was so bad even the judges kept looking over him for a DQ to get him off the table. Never
got DQ'd but they tried too find something. Even his ears were not to long but close....It sure shows how far we have came
in the time we have worked with this wonderful breed....with this picture it should give you all a little hope. Included in
the picture is our first Jersey, we do not do them anymore, but sure had fun with this guy and did well on the show table
as well. Now no laughing at this picture.........
