☛Breeding Rabbits  - 
 
I suppose everyone uses professional rabbitry software, but just in case this is of interest...I use Google Sheets for keeping track of rabbit breeding dates, because then the information is accessible via mobile also. My spreadsheet automatically calculates the dates for palpating, nestbox, due date, and late date. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1n7E7mFCBF-FgedteSuZRcRmh8fi7509x9Hf7t6nDWO4/edit?usp=sharing

☛Rabbit Care  - 
 
I went through the entire herd yesterday, giving the monthly doses of Ivomec. With Angora rabbits, one has to be vigilant for fur mites, which will destroy a coat before you even realize the mites have gotten established. I was very unhappy to find that one little junior doe had developed a case of mites while I wasn't watching; so, I had to scratch her off the list to take to shows this spring. She can grow her coat out and go show in the fall.

In the plus column, her littermate who had been chewing her coat (which is often a sign that mites are settling in, even before you can see the other signs) has stopped and her coat is recovering nicely.

I am sorry about the mites but so glad the other has recovered!   :D

Boyce Watkins, Scholar in Residence at Syracuse University, on CNN Live this morning: "I've been a black man for most of my life."

I looked up the bio of the very accomplished gentleman, to see when he became black, but it doesn't say. http://boycewatkins.com/about-me/

I wonder if he is slapping his forehead yet.  ;-)  (If I were being interviewed on TV live, I would likely be unable to form a single coherent sentence.)

Perhaps he's always been black but was born female?

"Many of us have "non perfect" rabbits... Do you practice "off set" breeding and what are your results? Such as fault crossed with a balanced area in hopes of keeping line of the faulted rabbit to improve on? There was some debate on major fault's as low shoulder & pinched hips also short body." (This question borrowed from a Facebook group where it generated a lot of discussion.)

My main priority in breeding is rabbits body type and their health. I don't bread those rabbits who has dental problems or any other inherited health issues.
In my opinion my rabbits have too long ears for their breed. I can't change this, other breeders in my area have long-eared Brits too. I decided not to worry too much about ears length because this is not a health issue, and such rabbits win in shows, I like them too, and their body look well-balanced.

Human sexuality is a spectrum.

The idea of two sexes is simplistic. Biologists now think there is a wider spectrum than that.

I give it monthly, because by the time you realize that a rabbit has an active case of fur mites, the coat is already ruined. Ivermectin won't cause them to blow their coats, but fur mites certainly will.

I cared for an injured friend's rabbits for six months. Yesterday, another friend and I made the 5 1/2 hour trip to return them to her. There are a couple of her rabbits that I fell in love with and will miss very much. On the plus side, I now have a bunch of empty cages.

So great of you to take care of them for her! I know she is glad to have her fluffies home.

☛Breeding Rabbits  - 
 
During the winter, I was blessed with 2 large litters of what I think are exceptionally nice English Angora rabbits. The sire, Lawman, is homozygous black, but carries REW. So unless bred to an agouti, everything he sires is either REW or black.

The dam of one litter is a small tort doe that has very correct type, but slightly lacking in wool density. The dam of the other is a REW doe that has very nice wool density, but is lacking a bit in type. The sire, Lawman, has excellent wool density, and depth of body, but is slightly cow hocked.

These two litters are very similar to each other, and the individuals are almost clones of each other. I like the crimp of the wool in the REW doe's litter better. 

I will show them for several months, and then next winter, will breed the best ones. I am wondering how best to breed them in order to continue getting their type and wool quality. Any suggestions?

I think I will try breeding one of the does to her full brother. I did a brother-sister breeding by accident last fall (I thought I was breeding half siblings, because I forgot they were littermates), and the result was outstanding, producing 4 BOB winners. It wasn't the inbreeding that was the cause of the quality, but that it was inbreeding two very good rabbits together.

Financial wunderkind Ephren Taylor Jr headed to prison. I always thought this dude sounded too good to be true. He used to be featured on major network financial programs and was used as an example of a successful teenage entrepreneur. There were things about his story that did not ring true to me. http://www.ajc.com/news/news/church-swindler-ephren-taylor-headed-to-federal-pr/nkYhM/
The man who devised a scheme to trick more than 400 people out of $16 million was sentenced to 19 years, seven months in federal prison, the U.

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.

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.
