Announcing the birth of 7 Satin Angora Babies to Dusty's Abby and AngoraEden Fabio.
I went to check on Abby and found her furiously pulling wool to line the nestbox. I left her alone to do rabbit care and for privacy. When I checked in on her, the wool was moving! I removed the wet and bloody wool and straw, counted heads and got everyone covered up with move clean wool and straw. So far, it looks like they are all black. They have sweet little bright pink bellies. They are so tiny and perfect. Have to take pictures tomorrow.
Partly Cloudy is still a lady in waiting. I think she's pregnant. She was bred on the same day as Abby. Her nestbox in her cage but she hasn't started pulling wool. We'll just have to see in the morning.
It was time to start getting ready for the Bloomington show this Saturday, February 14th. I had the day off from work and spent most of my time in the barn blowing coats and choosing which bunns to show. I should be able to take at least 4 with me this time. I love the time spent showing rabbits and talking with my friends at shows.
Baby Huey, one of my Giant Angora bucks is getting a much better coat as he gets older. He's one big white cloud of fluff right now. Penny isn't pregnant. Just a bit chubby. Abby, a black SA doe is hopefully due in a little over 2 weeks and so is Partly Cloudy. Time will tell.
Bryton, a handsome Giant Angora, got about half of his wool clipped off today. His wool is so dense it is taking awhile and I'm taking time to make sure there are no little short bits of wool mixed in. He really enjoys being groomed and was purring away in bunny fashion. With the warmer weather we've been having, the bunnies are starting to blow there coats.
My husband bought me a new digital kitchen scale so I get weigh all the angora wool I have now in preparation for selling some of it. I have so many colors and types of angora, it's going to take a while to get it all cataloged.
Time to call it a night. Blessing to all my family, friends and critters.
