Tons of Fun with Jersey Woolies and Standard Chinchillas

Well the monroe show was fun even though it was a bit warm for the buns. It was still a great time seeing good friends again.

In SHOW A I was amazed to find out that there were 23 standard chinchillas entered! And I had only entered 3! Liz and Margaret were both there, and it was thrilling to see all of their wonderful animals. Liz had a really cute little junior buck who has just stellar surface color! He had waves all the way up to his shoulders! It was a sight to see! It was wonderful to have classes as large as 10 junior does! Those are some firsts for standard chinchillas at a show other than Washington State Convention.

Overall, the chins did pretty good. I entered Scott's TP2 Junior Buck who placed 2 of 4, and Scott's TP3 Junior Doe who placed 3 out of 10. I also entered M an' M's Zoli, my favorite little chin girl...(she is my baby ^_^)...and she took Best Of Breed even with her never ending moult line! Cliff Dick really did like her, and I was happy about that, as I think she is a pretty nice doe too! M an' M's Zoli now has her 2nd leg. Here is a picture of Zoli before she started getting her moult line.

By the way, there were no standard chinchillas shown in the B show. Its just something weird about the chin breeders, they just don't stick around for show B. ^_^

So, as for the woolies, the numbers were also pretty good. There was about 15 or so woolies, so a few animals got legs.

Here were my results.


Best of Breed: M an' M's Tootie Fruitie (3rd leg)
Best Opposite Sex of Breed: M an' M's Bebop (8th leg)


Best of Breed: M an' M's Tootie Fruitie (4th leg)

One more thing I would like to add to this post is a couple pictures of this super cute little Blue doe M an' M's Empress, out of Leapin's Eclipse and Rolling Hill's MacKay. She is going to be really nice, and I can't wait to put her on the show tables.

Isn't she just a doll!

Anyways, in the next day or so I will write up a post about the new Standard Chinchilla stock that has been incorporated into the M an' M Rabbitry herd. They are some pretty nice animals, and have a lot of potential.

Until I post about the new chin stock,

Jersey Woolies and Standard Chinchillas Entered at the Monroe Show

So I had a bit of a tough time deciding to who to enter at the upcoming show in Monroe July 12th. I have a lot of nice junior jersey woolies that could be shown, and a lot of nice standard chinchilla juniors but I had to make up my mind and pick who would be the best competitors on the table. So here is what I decided to enter.

Jersey Woolies:

-M an' M's Tootie Fruitie -Self Junior Doe
-M an' M's Psyche -Tan Pattern Junior Doe
-M an' M's Martini - Tan Pattern Junior Doe
-M an' M's Bebop - Shaded Senior Buck
-M an' M's Electrify -Self Junior Buck

Standard Chinchillas:

-M an' M's Zoli -Senior Doe
-TP3 - Junior Doe
-TP2 - Junior Buck
*Karli still has TP2 and TP3's pedigrees, so I don't know their names!

Anyways, the monroe show should be a lot of fun this weekend, and I hope that the buns do very well. The buns are looking pretty cute though, so I expect that they will place well.

I leave you a very funny picture of M an' M's Snaps. (BatWoman)

Major Cleaning!

Last week I went through the barn and really noticed that there needed to be some MAJOR cleaning! Things were getting a little too fuzzy with the recent heat waves that set everyone into fast happening moults. Thus, I called up Tawnee and we planned on today for the major clean. And so we did.

We took all the the cages out of the barn, cleaned them, washed them out, and sanitized them making them super clean! Although the barn is a total mess due to all of the moving cages around and stuff, at least the buns are clean and happy! Tomorrow's chore is to organize all of the stuff that is thrown about the barn since the BIG clean! The buns were happy to get back into their cages after being in carriers for most of the day, and they were very happy to get back their toys which had be cleaned. They had a lot of energy to burn off from being in the carriers, and new clean toys was a great way to do it.

Today was super tiring, but I am glad that it all got done. Bun entires for the Monroe show are going to be sent in tomorrow. I just have to make some last minute decisions on the standard chinchillas to see who exactly I plan on entering.

Also, in the next few days I plan on updating the website with new for sale buns and edits to the Jersey Wooly and Standard Chinchilla stock, as there are some new additions, and some animals who have left the rabbitry for other breeding programs.

So I end with a couple pics of M an' M's Frida X DR's Titan's litter, 4 blue otters and 1 Blue (Very cute)

Look at that little face...don't you just want to gobble it up! CUTE!

Cute Cute Cute! I love these Blue Otters!

The Whole M an' M's Frida X DR's Titan's litter! Super Cute!

Anyways, until I have the time to get more pics of the upcoming cuties, or update the website,
