Here is one of my favorite bucks, WWR Sleeptalker. He is sold to Melanie P. of Lil' Bit Farms in Oklahoma. Melanie has some exceptional quality Holland Lops and Netherland Dwarves, and a wonderful start of Jersey Woolies. I think this buck will work out wonderful with herd of DOES. LOL!
I don't get notifications when I get new comments, and just happen to read the comment to try and bash me down into the earths core or something for making a mistake. Appearantly, people don't make mistakes and with that being said I'm going to burn and rot in hell. I'm a **** up. Dearly sorry.
Therefore, rather learning off mistakes and things that DO happen in this hobby, those will no longer be shared. Merry Christmas! :)
I was really having a bad day the day I lost my friend. Nothing was just going right. By the time I went to feed the bunnies it was late, I was so tired and was just going to do it in the morning but my boyfriend told me to feed the bunnies and we can still talk afterwards.
I went out, started feeding. I make it to Olga's cage. My heart dropped then and there. Babies scattered on the wire. Dead. I put down my feed bucket, get a little basket I have and start collecting. They had been there a few hours. 4 healthy looking kits, all dead. I have to go check Luvlee now, and in horror, she too, had kits scattered across the wire.
I made a beginners mistake. I counted the due date wrong. I feel so terrible. It's not fair to those two does. These by the way, were my nationals babies.
I was so upset. I finnished feeding and taking care of the buns and checked all my other does cages, checked my calendar and made sure no one else was due around this time. Nobody else was. After finding dead babies in two cages I expected more. I forget which does are bred anymore. I'm always so darn busy.
I lost a friend, and 10 baby bunnies that day. 9 never given the chance. I told myself I can't beat myself up over it. It happens, we all make mistakes and learn off it. This is as far as into detail I've gone, I didn't think I'd tell anybody. I was so ashamed. I need to go back to kindergarden and learn to count.
On the brighter side, Hobb's Katie has been raising two healthy kits sired by Twin Elm's Independence Day. These are my little national hopefuls. I hope they have a little bit in them. I think I have a broken orange and a broken opal.
I've been taking a good amount of pitures lately for my site being re-done. I'm going to try and make a new layout and such, but may not happen for a long time. Here are a few:
Wooligans/WWR Ro Sham Bo
WWR The Lucky One
WWR Xbox 360
Hope everyone is having better baby luck- or just luck in general. I'll be in Red Bluff, CA for the two day show this weekend. I hear there might be snow! Cool. :)
Our house is filled in dread. I should most likely get out, but I'm sure it's no different in the air. Our community has lost a very good person, friend, daughter, sister, girlfriend, the whole package.
Highway 12 is supposivly one of the most deadliest highways in the Nation. So many lives have been lost it is countless. Last night, I lost my friend, Ashlee, who was a Senior in Highschool, she lost her life too soon. She was in the wrong place, at the wrong time, down to the seconds.
Now that I think of it, Ashlee was a lot of all I ever wanted to be. Not to take life for granted, taking it one step at a time, day by day. Building herself up to be a successful person and liked by most. So happy, all of the time, with a smile to brighten up anyones day. A truely good person.
I'll never forget this friend, I grew up with her and her older brother who was my older brother's best friend.
Hope everybody has a wonderful day and stuffs their faces with various yummy foods. :)
I give thanks for my family, my friends, my bunnies, my job, Rabbit Habbit Forums, and thank you to all of my blog readers! If it weren't for you guys, I wouldn't be posting blogs about life in the day of Wooly World Rabbitry.
Here are some more pictures from Pomona, this weekend. LOL.

More photos to come! I need to catch up... Have a Happy Thanksgiving... xo~ Susie WWR
Closer to Fresno, that is! We stopped at Tulare where we stayed in the same Motel as the night before. It was late, but we were closer to Fresno which means a little more time to sleep in the morning.
We wake up, still, it's early. Get ready and this night we left the bunnies in the car. It was cool enough and we just covered them. We pack up, and go. Bunnies are alert and quite happy looking. Maybe they were just happy to see us.
We drove and hour to Fresno, where Katie and I were mislead by directions. The fog was thicker than the morning before, and the scariest part on that adventure where a couple dogs chasing cars, yes, in the fog. Sometimes you can't believe how irresponsible people are with there pets... we did turn around, stopped at a gas station and the directions took us the complete opposite way, we make it to the show on time though.
We meet up with Rachelle of Wroyal Reign Lops and decide to set up with her. Woolies are quickly on the table, where Amy of Amy's Bunny Barn greets me. It was great to see Amy again, it's been a few months. We were waiting for Amber, of Wonder Woolies Rabbitry and I was wondering where Michael, of Silent Springs Rabbitry was. Can you say was I nervous?!
Rachelle's English Lop set up, nice!
Mine and Katie's bunnies.
Fuzzy Lops go up the same time of woolies, so I have to pick one or the other to watch... I chose the Woolies. I hadn't had this judge in a very long time and value his opinions, I wanted to take it in. :)
The results went a little like this: Show A: Brightside's Paix- 1/?, BOG, BOB! (LEG) White Oak's Sesshomaru- 1/? BOSG WWR Constant Comment- 2/2 WWR Raquel- 1/1 Thumperhill's Ammadon- 1/5 BOG BOSB! (LEG) Wooligans/WWR Ro Sham Bo- 1/2 BOG Hobb's Meena- 2/3 Twin Elm's Independance Day- 1/3 BOV! (LEG)
Unfortunately, our Amber missed show A Jersey Woolies. But shortly after both our friends meet up, Amber and Michael. It was good to know both of them were safe, sometimes you can't help but be concerned with how bad the fog was! I've never seen fog so bad, it was as worse as it could get.
It was time to just hang out, and chat. Best part of shows are your friends. Rachelle, Katie, Michael and I spent most of the time together, Amber joining in when she could. I was getting very tired, I took a few pictures of the show room but my camera was dead. At the Shell Gas Station it cost $4.00 for TWO DOUBLE A BATTERIES! Uh-uhh. Out of my price range.
Rachelle brought out her English Lop, Ashton, to show Amber's boys and talk with them about the breed. Not only did Amber and her boy's valued this information, Katie and I did too. The breed is very gentle and loving, which we had never known. I think Rachelle has convinced a lot of us. I don't think this breed could have a better representer. I'm compassionate for this breed, maybe I'll decide to have one one day. :) Here is a picture of Amber's boys looking into the large ears to see the brain, or just maybe, through to see each other! LOL!
After a Taco-Bell run, Woolies go up again. I'm eating a Nacho Bell Grande while watching my animals being judged and carrying some, too. Here are our Woolies results. Show B: Brightside's Paix- 1/7 BOG, BOB! (4th LEG!) White Oak's Sesshomaru- 2/4 WWR Constant Comment- 2/2 WWR Raquel- 1/1 Thumperhill's Ammadon- 1/5 BOG BOSB! (LEG) Wooligans/WWR Ro Sham Bo- 1/2 BOG (LEG)
Hoorah for consistency! I love it. :) I'm very happy for my Paix.
Michael's show B rolls around, and in the process Katie and I gave his mini lop's some luvins. Michael has done a beautiful job with the color on type standard. I've never seen such pretty colors(Chocolate Chestnut, anyone?) and Michael surely knows what he is talking about. A+++ for typy color mini lops. Such sweet bunnies too.
Picture taken by Rachelle of Wroyal Reign Lops. Thanks Rachelle!
Show B fuzzies, finally! I'm getting tired and so is everybody else. I was so ecstatic to see Katie's little junior buck, "Nova" win BOB! Now that isn't something you see too often! Congrats to Katie, we all know this is going to be one fabulous buck. I have to admit, I'm quite scarred. lol. Our buck, Twin Elm's Independence Day, takes 1/3 and BOV again, winning another LEG.
We all teamed up and helped Rachelle carry her 4 big babies over to the judges table. I've never carried a big rabbit before(besides my Californians). English Lop's surely beat that! It was great though, they don't kick or struggle. PLUS. :) Rachelle's doe win BOB.
Awesomeness, the day is over, besides one thing, Best In Show! It was really cool, Katie had her Fuzzy Lop, Rachelle her English Lop, and me my Jersey Wooly. We put our kids next to each other, too cute!
Most of the BIS table.
Katie's little JUNIOR Buck got an Honorable Mention! *passes out* That will be one super buck.
Long day, I empty my water cups so they don't splash on the ride home, pack up and go. Back into the car we always know... Katie and I meet up with my mom where my mom came to pick me up like when my dad went to drop me off. It's all so silly. You can do so much in 48 hours. You get all baffled of "What just happened?" lol. A lot of fun, and a lot of memories made. :)
Hmm... whats next?! ;) Susie Cederlof Wooly World Rabbitry
Katie and I can be so random. Where have we been? Tuesday night we decided that we would go down to Southern California, for a rabbit show.
On Friday night we met up at "Flying J" where Katie and I started our adventure. Our first stop was Modesto, CA where we stopped to eat. We really wanted to go to the mall across the street, LOL, but dang we had a long drive to go. After we ate we drove some more, where we made it down to Tulare, CA and we stayed the night... snuck the bunnies into the room and crashed.
The next morning, we wake up and it's early... the fog was ridiculous and we head out for the rest of the way down to L.A. It's been a very long time since I've been down south. I've forgotten how beautiful it was, the sun started rising when we were crossing the Grape Vine and the pollution in the sky made some beautiful colors. lol.
We get there on time, we see Amber and decide to set up next to her. But this is no ordinary show... its like a TAIL-GATE PARTY! The show was in a parking lot where you pulled up and just set your bunnies outside the car. Katie and I wondered if this was normal, and shortly after met Sarah of Sarah's Bunny Barn(Mini Lops in So. Cal) and got to ask that question, it was not normal. It was great meeting Sarah, really cool person, her mini lops did exceptionally well too. :)
My first show was Jersey Woolies show B. It was before JW show A. How silly. There was a great turn out for Jersey Woolies! 30+ in open. 15 in youth. I had shown my woolies in Open.
Here are our JW results: Show A: Brightside's Paix- 1/3, BOG, BOSB! (LEG) White Oak's Sesshomaru- 2/3 WWR Constant Comment- 1/2 BOSG WWR Raquel- 1/1 BOSG Thumperhill's Ammadon- 1/1 BOG (LEG) Wooligans/WWR Ro Sham Bo- 1/1 BOG
WOW! Not too bad at all! Congrats to Amber who won BOB in show A and B with her beautiful Tan Pattern and Broken Bucks. :)
I had also shown a couple of American Fuzzy Lops who didn't do half bad either. :) It was so great seeing some new AFL faces, and great meeting Pam of So. Cal. She was a wonderful lady who I look forward to seeing in the future.
Dr. Scott Williamson
This is how the fuzzies went: Show A: Hobb's Meena- Last (all I wrote. LOL) Twin Elm's Independance Day- 1/4, BOSV, BOSB! (LEG)
What can I say? I'm uber happy. :) Katie got BOB show A and BOSB show B with her beautiful doe, Harmony. I love when things swap and are consistent. VERY cool. :P
Katie and I with our winners pictured with the show A judge, Joey Shults
Amber, her two sons, Katie and I all packed up and went out to eat together. Loads of fun. At the end of the day its all about the friends and memories you make in this hobby. After that, we headed back towards Fresno, where again we stayed in Tulare. Man, are we tired.
Stayed tuned for day two!!! Susie Cederlof :) Wooly World Rabbitry
