What started out as a 4-H project, now takes us all around the United States and gives us the chance to meet new friends....

12+ years and still going strong. We love our Netheland Dwarfs and love all the new people we meet each and every year. However if it was not that this started out a Mother/Daughter adventure we probably would not have made it this far, the other thing that helps is the great help and support I get from two other special breeders that live very close to me. We help each other out, cull each others rabbits, are there to listen when times are good and when we want to cull the whole barn and start over. A special Thanks Becky (King's rabbitry) you have been so much help and support to us..........

the picture says it all...........

In 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.
As time 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 does.
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.....




**************************
If 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.........

So Embarrassed- so long ago though

Our favorite saying as we are leaving for a show: "No matter what happens today at the show, as long as we have fun, then we had a great day".
