Prepping for Showmanship

(I should have written this up two months ago.  Anyway, I'll leave it here for now so our regular followers will see it, then I'll move it where it belongs chronologically.)
So Evan and Jennifer bought a few rabbits from us to start their own herd and to get started in the fabulous world of 4-H.  Evan was a bit nervous about his first showmanship competition, so he asked Lydia to show him how it's done.  
Checking the abdomen for abscesses
Counting nails on the paws

Evan practicing holding his bunny on the table

Checking ears for mites

Checking teeth

Checking whether it's a buck or doe
Lydia did a great job showing Evan how showmanship is done here in Nevada, and Evan did himself proud in the competition a few weeks later.

  1. Lydia did a GREAT job - We watched the video of this lots of times to be able to prepare.
