Well, there has been a lot of babies born at M an' M Rabbitry lately, and everyday it seems like there is more on their way. ^_^

Here are a few of the cuties that are looking super promising!

Haven't Blogged for Over a Month!

I can't believe how time has just flown by! I didn't realize that I hadn't blogged in over a month until I looked at my website and realized that I hadn't updated it since the end of MAY! Eeeeeek!

Since my last blog about the Monroe show, there have been quite a few litters born, lots of cute upcoming juniors, and a lot of for sale animals!

Here are some of the litters that have been born:

Wooly Litters:

M an' M's Daffodil X Leapin's Eclipse -Blue Kit

Rolling Hill's MacKay X M an' M's Bebop -Siamese Sable Kit

M an' M's Coconut X M an' M's Bebop -Ruby Eyed White Kit

M an' M's Ashilnd X M an' M's Bebop - Blue Otter Kit, Smoke Pearl Marten Kit, 3 Smoke Pearls

Chin Litters:

Hutchin's 051 X DC's Zel -5 kits

Coon's Morena X Wiebensohn's Togo -4 kits

AT8 X Wiebensohn's Togo -6 kits

Don't Worry More does are due on the 26th of this month, so more and more kits will be coming! Chins and Woolies alike.

Also, there have been a ton of buns moulting due to the recent heat waves. But one little wooly has managed to begin to make the transformation from junior to senior. This picture was taken about 2 weeks ago, but when it finally stops raining I will take a more recent photo, as her coat is longer and more even now.

The next blog I post in the next couple of days will have a recent list of animals for sale and hopefully some information on animals that will be available for sale to be transported to National Convention later this year.



New Standard Chinchilla Stock

In the past month or so I have acquired some new standard chinchilla stock that has yet to be mentioned on the website, or on the blog. These animals are very nice quality, and I hope to get some nice animals out of them.

Wiebensohn's Togo
Standard Chinchilla Senior Buck

Wiebensohn's Togo's Ring Definition

This little junior buck is really nice good solid type and wonderful ring definition. He is going to be a very promising animal that I hope to incorporate into the herd soon.

Wiebensohn's Tango
Standard Chinchilla Senior Doe

Wiebensohn's Tango's Ring Definition

This little doe is very nice. She has good type, but her most notable features are her stellar ring definition and surface color. She is a very cute little doe. Once she grows up a bit more she will be incorporated into the chin breeding program.

Standard Chinchilla Senior Doe

AT8's Ring Definition

This wonderful senior doe came from Margaret Cummings. Although she is not from Margaret's stock, the doe's sister has blended in well with her herd, so I am assuming the same will happen with mine. She has a great coat on her right now, nice ring definition and surface color. Plus very solid type. Because I wont be going to any bunny shows for over a month, I decided to breed her to Wiebensohn's Togo. That should be a very nice combo, and we will see how everything turns out.

******Update! At8 Kindled 6 healthy kits and is raising them well!

Also, in the next couple of months I plan on increasing the Standard Chinchilla herd up to 15 holes for breeding stock. Yes, I know that doesn't really seem like a whole lot, but before the addition of these three buns, I was only at 5 animals for breeding stock. So it will be a really nice treat to be able to increase the herd that much. Plus, more high quality stock will come out of M an' M Rabbitry that way.

Anyways, I plan on updating the site soon, with new pics and information about new litters!

Until then,
