    Val how many shows do you enter a year roughly? How long does it take each day to care for your bunnies, and what is your daily routine?

    I hope that these answeres have put your minds at rest a bit about breeders people who breed to show love their rabbits its hard work keeping them happy and heathy and our aim is just to improve the breed. There will always be people that shouldent be allowed to keep pets of any kind thats life. The people i have a grudge with are people that breed to try and make money out of it because they are the ones who cut corners trying to make a buck and not carring how they do it. Most of the people i have met and got to know have the utmost respect for theie rabbits and work long and hard to look after them.

    val you have brought a wonderful insight into your work, and you have certainly answered the questions really, really well.

    Does any one else have any burning questions to ask Val before we end this interview, as Val must be getting tired tapping on the keyboard by now??
    Are you okay out there Val??

    Why did you decide to show and breed rabbits Val?

    Why not keep them just as pets and do rescue?

    Do clubs and the council advertise the shows rules, standards etc or are they mainly only given to ppl that join? Are they different for club and council shows?

    In the morning i spend about 2-3 hours topping up bottles and cleaning out wee corners topping up hay balls tea break then looking everyone over checking babys etc . Tea time cleaning out anyone who rearly needs it feedinf bottles hay balls again. In the mean time leting rabbits have a turn in the runs and answering the phone. appointments during the day or evening for people who want to addopt a rabbit. 10 check everyone is okay bottle check. Twice a week everony has a total clean out this takes about 8 hrs. Lots of kissing and cuddles my son who is still living at home never sees me till the evening says i should move in down the sheds lol.

    Whats your thoughts on harness and leads on bunnies

    I have Bugzee running my daughter running around madly (at top speed if she had her way )

    Then I have Shadow who is quite happy to lie down or just take things slowly.

    Some swows may advertise localy but to hear about the show you would have to get the fur and feather mah or go on the show time list on the brc site. When i first went to a show i didnt have a clue whot it as alabout but i just loved it all those breeds lovely helpfull people and the chance to learn lots about keeping rabbits and then when you rearly get the bug the thrill of winning with a rabbit that you have breed. Not for everyone but i just love it .I go to shows every otherweek normaly sometimes 1 a week in the summer if its not to hot.
