Our First Rabbit Show

February 20, 2011 stephhwilliams 0 Comments

On Saturday, we attended our first rabbit workshop and “fun” show hosted by the Conway High School Ag Department. One of the Ag teachers, along with the Arkansas State Fair Rabbit Superintendent, led a workshop on rabbit care, disease recognition and nutrition. Then they let the kids practice tattooing (like many show animals, rabbits ears must be tattoed with an identifying marker) on bananas.  The Girl and Boy Genius got their first experiences in rabbit showmanship and then it was time for the fun show.  All in all, I think the kids really enjoyed it and feel more comfortable now about showing in the Spring and Fall.
