New Buck on the Block
On February 28 was the Turlock show. Charlotte and Becky were very busy because they were selling bunnies. While I was grooming Fudge, my mom came over and told me that Julie was selling two of her bucks. At first I didn't really want a buck. I wanted another doe. But I knew it would be good to get another rabbit so that our rabbits would be better. The more I thought about it, the more I was interested in him. My mom said that Becky would not be buying because she's now in college and busy with that, and Charlotte already has three bucks. So it was up to me. I asked Julie to show me the two bucks that were for sale. One was a black tort and the other was a fawn. The two bucks are brothers and are 14 months old. I traded Julie one of my junior REW bucks and gave her $100 for him.
I'm still working on a name for him.
He is a non-plucking French angora. This means he needs to be sheared. And it means that I can let his wool stay in a lot longer.
