Taylorsville Night Show

We had an excellent Night Show! It was cool, which was nice.  It can be worrisome showing in the summer and I have canceled a few shows in the past because I worried the heat would be too much for the bunnies.

Keep's Merlin and Keep's Cold Shoulder are the latest in a long line of Grand Champion woolies! This was their first time out as seniors and I'm so proud of both of them.

Keep's Rue won her first Best Opposite Sex of Breed at exactly 10 weeks old! I believe this show will give her two legs, as she also placed BOSG in the second show.

Keep's Tribute earned another leg for his Best of Breed win in the second show! He earned two at this show as well. 

It was a great day as far as results- several bunnies earned legs to add to their growing pile and the little junior girls did me proud!

I was able to move out a group of bunnies- I hope their new owners are pleased with them and they do well for them!  I wasn't able to bask in empty cages long, as I had babies that needed to be weaned from their mamas.

Happy Independence Day!

As you are enjoying those fireworks tonight, remember your bunnies. 

A Radio on in the barn can help keep the rabbits from stressing during the booms of fireworks and the whooping and hollering of any nearby neighbors.

Having corn on the cob?  Save those husks and feed them to your rabbits for a fantastic treat! Remember to feed in moderation and check to make sure there is no mold on it.  Corn husks, if kept damp, mold in a shockingly short amount of time.

If you have the heat we typically associate with July here in the South, add frozen water bottles or frozen tiles to the cages.  Relief from the heat keeps your rabbits healthy and happy.  I also recommend freezing bananas, peel and all.  Chunks of this treat keeps your animals cooler and makes sure they get nutrition (as many go off feed in extreme heat)- plus it's a nice thing to do for them.

Are there bonfires or poor air quality from lots of grilling around?  If possible, I like to close up the barn to keep the air clean for the rabbits.  Depending on the heat and other factors, this may not be possible.   Just remember, keep any fires well away from the barn!

Enjoy your 4th of July!
