That sounds delightful! It really does, but have you ever been to a show? I just don't think the bunnies enjoy it as much as the hoomans!! :(

Hoppit!

I hate rabbit shows. Tiny cages, noise, the stress of travel, nowhere to hide, being mauled by judges, heat, etc, etc. Nope, I wouldn't put a bunny of mine through it.

I appreciate that some people don't like shows, but I would like to make up my Own mind and opinion on them. I'd also like to meet other owners. And rest assured I wouldnt do anything to stress out my little pals.

Any information anyone could give on where to find shows, or any shows coming up would be gratefully received.

thanks for the info ann, i've seen the brc website before, and it hasn't given me a great deal of info on shows anywhere (unless i'm looking in the wrong place ;) ) I think there is one in Worcester but I dont know when they run lol.

How many shows have you been too? Is there anything you'd recommend?

most rabbits that are taken to shows cope perfactly fine with it all. It can be fun for both the people and the rabbits.
I like how you are making your own decision on wether you agree with them or not. I would go along to some, just to have a wee look about, ask some questions.

as i said, my own personal opinion. think any bun would love to run around a garden rather than be at a show given the choice!

ive been showing for over 6 years now and love it not all rabbits enjoy it but most of mine get very excited when they see the take to show tags come out :lol:
my next show is on saturday at honley near huddersfield that has a pet show and then following week at the north yorks county show near northallerton again that has pet show may be a bit far for you though
you should get this magazine
http://www.furandfeather.co.uk/

our biggest shows are bradford champs held in harrogate in january and london champs held in readding in sept brilliant weekends but no pet shows at those :D

I think people can choose to make up their own minds.
My ambition is to breed show quality rabbits (after i've done loads of research into it) from what i've seen, most rabbits cope fine with it.
I can imagine some don't but it's the same with dogs, horses etc;
Even humans in big crowds.

If I had a hopeful show bun and it wasn't comfortable and stressed out, this is exactly what I would do.
Get it neutered. On the basis I was showing it to be a show bun, not a breeder.
Keep it until the end. I bred it, it's my responsibility.
I'm a big believer in taking responsibility for your actions. I hate the breeders who get rid of buns because they're "no good" anymore :( it's sad and gives the rest of the good breeders a bad name.

Shows are great for meeting other enthusiasts. Especially if you're into a certain breed :)
