Rabbitry Number K193

ABOUT US 

Nancy acquired her first rabbits in 1969 while living in Poway which is in Southern California.  They were the result of a failed 4-H project from a child of one of her co-workers.  These were alleged to be Belgian Hares, but most likely were just cross-bred whatchamacallit's.  These were supposed to be excellent meat rabbits, and hence began her quest for the perfect edible rabbit -- yup she's still on the quest of finding the illusive 6-foot tall, solid chocolate Easter Bunny.  Her "rabbit habit" is believed to be the result of a genetic defect as her father had raised rabbits back in the late 1930's.

Shelley acquired her first rabbit in 1985.  It was a French Lop named "Thumper", which two years later was replaced by a much smaller Holland Lop.  She specialized in Tortoise and broken Tortoise colored Holland Lops, Florida Whites and Red New Zealands through the following 10+ years as her 4-H and FAA projects. 

Other breeds which have passed through our rabbitry since moving to Marysville in 1972 have been American Fuzzy Lops, Californians, Flemish Giants, a Lionhead, Mini Rex, New Zealands, Satins and Velveteen Lops; in addition to American, Peruvian and White Crested cavies.  We currently specialize in Florida Whites, Holland Lops in both Blue-eyed White and Chinchilla colors, and Standard Chinchillas.
