As summer winds down and we head into fall, I have started to receive a lot of emails from people who are either post 4-H fairs, or looking to purchase animals at the ARBA Convention in Reno, Nevada. While I will be showing rabbits at Convention, due to the distance and logistical issues with travel, I am not taking rabbits to sell to the show. I will have a small number of animals available this fall, local pickup in central Indiana only. Please see the "availability" page in the navigation bar for more information. Best of luck to everyone attending Convention! Safe travels!

I have not had an opportunity to closely look though show results, but I had a few other top ten placings as well. As someone who focuses on blacks, winning BOV and BOSV black at Convention is a proud moment. Also, winning these three classes was a big personal accomplishment for me because they were the only classes I had show prime rabbits entered in. I had a handful of brood/unfinished animals entered in other classes because they had been brought to sell. Big thanks to the Hoosier Rabbit & Cavy Club for hosting Convention. This was hands down one of the best quality Conventions I have ever been to. While I may seem biased because I am from Indiana, I actually really love traveling to different locations for Convention. From the live stream of Best in Show judging to the excellent showroom ventilation, everything was fantastic.
Thank you also to everyone in the Tan breed who made the show run smoothly -- whether it was ramrodding, running rabbits, writing or staffing the club booth.
