Wooly & Fuzzy Beebs

After 8 long months of no babies (besides one kit that was out of a pre-bred purchased doe) we have 4 Jersey Wooly and 3 American Fuzzy Lop kits in the nest box.

American Fuzzy Lops: Lucky Lop's Capone (Brkn. Tortoise Shell) X WWR Olga (Blue Tort)
2 Torts (Madagascar) & 1 Blue Tort


Jersey Woolies: JG's Paco (Sable Point) X Skyview's Brittany (Smoke Pearl)
3 Seal (possibly Blue based?) & 1 Siamese Sable


These are only two of the kits. Comparing color. The kit looks more "blue-ish" based, but as they get older they look more of just regular Seal. I'm unsure, but when they get their wool we will be able to surely tell. :)

We have more does due next week! Jersey Woolies & American Fuzzy Lops. A lot of these kits will be available for sale.

R.I.P. Lil' Bit Farm's Bjork

We had a very sad day here yesterday. We lost a very special bunny to us and was surely my second favorite Fuzzy Lop doe. Lil' Bit Farm's Bjork.


Bjork was 2nd place Solid Junior Doe at ARBA Convention 2009 in San Diego. She'll hold a special place in our hearts.

Such a lovely doe... we'll miss her little qwirks. :(

It's a Magpie Obsession

It's about time my "secret" comes out. By the title, yes, I love me some Magpie right now. And nope, nope not of the Harlequin rabbit breed! JERSEY WOOLIES. I'm in love with Magpie Jersey Woolies!

Who know such a thing existed? Well, I surely didn't when about a year ago I got an email from The Maki Family in Redding with some pictures of some unusual colored... Woolys. Apparently, Harlequin and Magpie. (check out their website here)

I feel in love and of course had to pester them for my OWN colored Wooly. :) A few months ago they emailed me with a Magpie Wooly doe to send me. Yes! I picked her up a couple months ago at the Santa Rosa rabbit show from Teri.

I fell in love.

Above is DTL's Simca - who is a Sable Point Magpie Vienna Mark. Festive!

So you probably wonder what the heck I'm going to do with this rabbit? Well, Sarah sent her bred. She had a litter, and inside we have a Sable Point Magpie, and a Tort Vienna Mark. I lucked out. The Magpie we got may be Sable Point, but it has a perfect vertical on his face, and 3 distinct bars on his body and is relatively clean! Exciting!

Oh, so cute!!!

As if I couldn't get enough, I also contacted Creator's Critters in BC Canada for a Magpie HL Buck she has available. After much planning and much help, I was able to get him down here! Thank you Serri Evans, Vern Marchetti, and Tricia Hill for ALL your help! You guys are awesome, I'm so happy he's finally here in California. :@)


This is Creator's Puck, a Black Magpie HL Junior Buck. I had to name him something Canadian-related! hehe :)

*phew* I bet you readers are feeling a bit, overwhelmed perhaps? I would have to say I am too, slightly. I have big plans, and am very excited. I hope to pull some Harlequins/Tri Colors out of these guys too. :)
