    Right, let's get this straight. You want to buy a rabbit to satisfy a hobby of your daughter's that will surely not last, despite knowing NOTHING about them. What's wrong with sheep wool?

    More expensive than looking after a PAIR of rabbits PROPERLY for the whole of their lives?

    Before you buy a rabbit you should research everything about owning them. They're living beings and it's a massive responisility like any pet. Angoras are even more so as they need regular grooming.

    When do you remove the fur and how do you do it?
    We are in 4H and she may even want to do a rabbit project with them.
    Thanks!!!
    I thought 4-H were trying to move away from their animal based projects now?
    Why not get in touch with ARBA, and find breeders who keep wool producers in your area, and see if they will supply you with wool rather than rabbits?

    Just got this off the net:

    4-H in the United States and Canada is a youth organization administered by the Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service of the United States Department of Agriculture, with the mission of "engaging youth to reach their fullest potential while advancing the field of youth development."[1] The name represents four personal development areas of focus for the organization: head, heart, hands, and health.
