Survey

Well, I took this from 4 Kings Rabbitry Blog :)

1. How did you deceide the name for your rabbitry?
Keep or Keepee is actually an old screen name I've used for years- and since on some non-rabbit-related websites, I've become known as "Keep", I thought "Keep's Rabbitry" was perfect :).

2. Youth or Open?
Open! I missed out on the joys of showing in youth competition, as I didn't become aware of showing until I was 20.

3. How long have you owned rabbits?
Hmmm, I've had pet rabbits all my life, at various different times :). I had a Babs, a Thumper, a Whiskers...then of course Scout the mixed breed who prompted me to buy the book "Rabbits for Dummies" which mentioned...RABBIT SHOWS!

4. What's the biggest win you've had so far(not that winning is everything!)?
Hmm- Best in Show :). Best Reserve was a biggie too, since it was at the NC State Convention :).

5. What's the most embarrassing or 'Ah Ha' moment with rasing rabbits?
Oh no, do I have to share that? Geez, maybe my mini lop buck that sprayed EVERYONE whenever he was put on the show table- and since it was 4 shows over 2 days...yeah... I still get teased about that one.

6. How did you decide what breed to raise?
Our first purebred rabbit was a holland, so we just kind of dropped in to those and I've been working on them ever since. With the woolies though- Shhhh, I thought woolies were UGLY when I first saw them. But I started talking to Lisa of Wooligans on a forum and she'd post these drop dead gorgeous rabbits- I knew I'd have to have some.

7. What is your current 'set up' and how many cages?
I've got about 45 holes right now. I don't really plan on going above that, but I hope to get a nice barn to put them in within the next few years!

8. What's your short term goal (now to June 2009)?
Hmm- GET SOME BABIES!

9. Long term goal?
I just want to make some beautiful animals and get some big wins :). ;)

10. Anything else we need to know?
Not really- we'll be moving around a lot, so it's always going to get my does stirred up, unfortunately.
