☛Litter Announcements  - 
 
English Angora doe, "Tweety" has a litter of six. They are not very uniform and I fear the small ones will be unable to compete for milk. So, I will keep them in a little box in the house, and take them to the dam once a day to be nursed. That way, I can give the small ones a head start.

I am pleased that three of the kits are tortoiseshell like their mother, because that tells me that the sire, Wicket, carries tort as a recessive. Wicket is black, and this is his first litter. Wicket's sire could sire only black (or REW masking black), so I am pleased that Wicket can sire tort, which the judges seem to prefer.

This is Tweety's second litter. Her first is a litter of one, and he is now 8 weeks old, and sired by a different buck. I think he is very promising.

I heard a stray or dumped cat meowing outside this morning; I tried to call it up, but I think it left. It would be welcome here, if it wanted to stay.

I have been upgrading my health habits over the past two weeks; I changed from synthroid for my Hashimoto's to a brand of natural dessicated thyroid, and I changed my diet to Paleo. I have lost some weight and have been feeling better overall. Today, however, I feel sleepy; probably has to do with the thyroid adjusting to the different medication.

Raquel, six month old English Angora doe.
She was BISS in one of the two specialty shows last Friday night. Then in one of the two following all breed shows the next day, she placed 3rd in a class of 5; that is a example of how placings can vary from show to show and judge to judge. :-)

Raquel has earned enough legs to get granded, so I need to get her registered.

More international attention is needed to be focused on America's shameful culture of forced genital cutting of boys. Please help us shame this hospital and doctor into respecting 4 1/2 year old Chase Neus Hironimus' human and civil rights. Chase has said, "Don't let daddy cut my pee pee."

This is not a "fathers' rights" case; little Chase will grow up to become a man, and he has rights, too!

"Passive Frame Theory" as a new theory to explain human consciousness.
I'm having a bit of difficulty wrapping my head around this one. Anyone want to offer a dumbed down explanation for me?

☛Rabbit Care  - 
 
That mucoid enteropathy struck again; I still haven't worked out what brings it on. I hoped the answer would be with offering rolled oats to kits along with their pelleted feed, but a couple of days ago, I found two 3 week old kits dead from it. I gave the others probiotics; it can't hurt, and it might help. Their dam doesn't milk real well, so perhaps the dead kits overate on pellets and oats.

Been treating a batch of kits with neomycin. I think we are battling bloat and fending off diarrhea (and thereby flystrike). Haven't lost any since they were a week or so old, up to 7&8 weeks now.
Hope all goes well with your little ones!

I will carry you.
"Some day, when my bones are weary with age and your arms are full of your own babies, or perhaps their babies, I will pull your wrinkling face to mine and whisper to you about how I carried you. Your fragile newborn self, your round-headed infant person, your laughing, squalling, joyful raging toddler limbs, your muscle and kicks and tears, your smooth-soled feet and your climbing fingers, the sweat of your curls on my back- I carried you. My whole heart and your whole being, wrapped to each other, I carried you. On the days we paced dismal in each other's failure, the days we climbed mountains, the days that were only just days- I carried you. Like a memory, like my own body, like every precious wild and temporary thing, I carried you, like the weight of the holy, like the deep grounding center of joy.

Today, you are sweetly sleep-breathing between my shoulders, and someday I will remind you, every day, where you have come from, where you belong.

I have always carried you. I will carry you always. .."

               --forgot where I saw this...think it is beautiful.

☛General Discussion  - 
 
I am waiting for an English Angora doe to deliver; she could have them any time. Her last litter was a singleton, but he is a real crackerjack. She is carrying a larger litter this time, by a different buck.

I am doing some more work on that Google Sheets Rabbitry pedigree generator; +Eric Poe was using it and has some good ideas for improvements for version 3, so we are working on it together. 

I have a bunch of Angoras that I need to get sheared, and then bred. The senior members of the show string need to be sheared and retired to the breeding herd. I will keep the black doe, Raquel, and her REW sister, Bardot, in coat; they are only six months old, so by fall they ought to be in full, prime coat.

I have some babies coming along for the show string this fall, and I have begun getting them tattooed.

Mid America Angora Club specialty shows, June 12, Wichita, Kansas.
Show A:
Judge, Dan Daniels
BISS: Moirai Raquel, Black senior English Angora doe. BOS to her was her older fully brother, Wicket.

Show B:
Judge, Sara Michaud
BISS: Moirai Wicket, Black senior English Angora buck. Raquel was BOS.

Obviously, most of the entries were English Angoras. Sasha and John McPherson showed several Satin Angoras, and I don't remember for sure at the moment, which was BOB. Laurie Holden and I each showed a Giant Angora. There were no French Angoras in the show.

Angora Rabbit breeder, ARBA rabbit showman, hand spinner, and web developer.
Introduction
Greetings, fellow pluskins! I breed Angora Rabbits for shows and for fiber production. I also do web development.

If you are interested in Angora Rabbits, please add the AngoraRabbit.com brand page to your circles. Join my Google Plus Angora Rabbits Community!

I am a member of the American Rabbit Breeders Association; if you enjoy the rabbit hobby, you might like Rabbit Breeders Community.


With Kelly Flading, I host a weekly Hangout on Air, the Rabbit Breeders' Hangout.

I am also very interested in web development, which includes PHP, MySQL, and jquery. I wrote a PHP code wizard-generator.

I've been married to Eric since 1980 and we have a daughter and a son, who are both now adults and working in IT. We share our home with several cats and a dog. We have a few horses.

I am interested in people who wear cochlear implants, or who have a relative who wears one, or who are considering whether to get one. My son has had two separate cochlear implant surgeries (for the same side of his head) and is pleased with his. Somewhat related to that, I would be interested in meeting people who like myself, are carriers of the recessive X-linked progressive hearing loss gene.

Bragging rights
My LOLs were featured on the home page of Cheezburger.com twice. I was an official AOL chat host back in the mid 90s. I have the oldest Angora Rabbit website. I was once accused of "conducting a campaign against horse psychics."

This hospital is colluding with an unethical doctor to forcibly circumcise a healthy child, against the wishes of the boy and his mother. Another doctor, an ethical physician, Dr John Trainer, says he will file an ethics complaint against this institution if it proceeds with violating the child's human and civil rights. By the way, some of the positive reviews of this hospital are by circumfetishists who are sexually aroused by genital cutting of children.

The treatment my animals have received by Dr Deb and her staff was excellent. Dr Deb is very down to earth and treats pet owners with dignity and respect. Dr Deb is very knowledgeable and has treated horses, cats, and dogs for me. My only "complaint," if I have one, is that sometimes the staff seems just a little bit too relaxed about getting clients attended to and checked out in a timely manner. However, some clients may enjoy that. :-) ETA: If you have rabbits, you can take them to this clinic with confidence.

Way out in the country, way north of Manhattan KS, sits the RB Outpost store. It is well worth the drive, as it offers almost everything the horseman needs, plus some. Farmers find it a convenient and well-stocked source of various kinds of feed. For horsemen, it offers the industry leading brand of horse feed, Purina Strategy. Bulk purchases with discount can be arranged. RB Outpost has a large selection of western boots, hats, and clothing. It has lots of horse tack, including saddles and saddle pads and cinches and reins and bridles.
