On average, the people who buy our rabbits fall into three pretty evenly divided groups: one-third are for show, one-third are for spinning, and one-third are for homeschool families who want the whole rabbit-raising and showing and spinning experience for their education.
This past month, however, all our bunnies have gone to homeschoolers. I wish I would remember to take pictures of our buyers with their new bunnies, but we're usually so caught up in demonstrating holding and grooming and spinning that I totally forget about photographs. It happens almost every single time.
Anyway, our first family bought two of Charlotte's does for their daughters to start showing in 4-H and to start spinning and knitting. We look forward to seeing them and their bunnies at local shows. The girls were so excited to be taking Lyra and Vela home and we know that they will be very much loved.
Our second family just got settled in Reno after leaving the military. They decided to begin their angora journey with our two wool bunnies Leo and Jasmine. And the whole family (well, maybe not the three-year-old) is planning to be involved with the bunnies, with the girls feeding and loving the bunnies, and Mom grooming and spinning, and Dad--a Marine--knitting and maybe even spinning. They're going to have a great experience.
