June Has Been Busy Month

Florida rabbit
I've been bad about posting this month, but I've been here in spirit.  It has been so interesting keeping up with everyone. The world keeps on turning! 

Our extended family vacation to Florida was big fun! It was great to see our Ohio family. My hubby teased me that rabbits turn up wherever we go...as we took a walk one morning and were stalked by a wild rabbit.  It followed us around for most of our walk.  I didn't mind, but I think DH was looking forward to a "rabbit free" week haha. I brought along some of Little Sun's wool so I could practice spinning on my drop spindle.  I don't know what I was thinking, though.  I  got very little done....I kept ending up at the pool.  Fun in the Florida sun always wins out!

The rest of the month has been a hodge podge of rabbit related activities, including local rabbit club meetings and a fun visit with our good friend, Ricardo.  I've been working steady on our club's first webinar series.  It's a simple webinar on basic Angora rabbit care.  At least it seems like a simple webinar....12 page research paper, short powerpoint presentation, and 3 page handout later.  Maybe it wasn't so simple after all.  I do have to admit that I really enjoyed the process. I hope it helps the new members of our club learn more about Angora rabbits. 

Unfortunately, I had to miss two shows that I had been excited about...the MidAmerica Angora Club Show in Wichita, Kansas and the ETRBA Show in Longview, TX.  I heard that both shows were great, but our family vacation happened to hit both weekends.  Congratulations to all the folks that came out for those shows.  

I heard the Angora results for Longview were as follows:

Show A
English Angora BOB -  Jinnifer B.
English Angora BOS -  Jinnifer B.
Satin Angora BOB - Sasha M.

Show B
English Angora BOB - Sasha M.
English Angora BOS - Jinnifer B.
Satin Anogra BOB - Dana F.

There were a lot of Angora folks at the Longview show.  I was excited to hear about the good turnout.
