Well, 4th of July came a day early this year & I ended up evacuating my rabbitry. I nearly lost 3 Satin Angoras, including 1 pregnant doe to the heat of the fire while evacuating. Don't worry the doe kindled w/ no problems on the 10th delivering 12 babies (a new record for Satin Angoras in my barn). It came within a few hundred feet of our back fence & the barns. It took out the old pig farm just 6 places down from us, destroying both houses & most of the barns on that old property. The pic below is just west of my chicken barn, the rabbit barn is about 30 feet away.

My Chestnut Agouti doe Siam-Pals' Bridget Jones
out of GC Aundi's Red (Red - 4 legs) x Daisy Hill's Chesterfield (Chestnut Agouti - 1 leg)
She is a very promising doe w/ great shoulders & type on her, plus good sheen & wool for a junior. This was taken a few weeks ago & she has since got huge.
out of Irish Rose's Cadbury (Choc. - 2 Legs) x Aundi's Hershey Bar (Choc. - 2 Legs) & is the granddaughter (mom's sire) of Jailbird's Lou (REW), the 2009 ARBA Convention Open BOB winner. This was taken when she was 1 week old, she's now 5-6 weeks old. She like her brothers carry a candy related named. I call it my candy merger litter. Lilac Satin Angoras are a rarity in litters or on the show table even. I plan to keep her & show, plus use her for my dilute program & breed her to my Lilac Chinchilla buck Siam-Pals' Mr. Darcy (Bridget's littermate/brother). I will post more up to date pics of my Jrs. soon.
