French Angora Doe - Briar Lane's Frosty
Frosty is a REW (red-eyed white) doe, also born in December 2011. She was a two-time Best of Breed winner, and was permanently registered with ARBA. She had several wonderful litters. Her first litter of kits (July 24, 2012) produced Heartsong Mabel, who has won two Best of Breed titles in her showing with us and has earned a leg towards her Grand Champion certificate.
We purchased Frosty and her sister, Delight, from Briar Lane Rabbitry in Owasso, Michigan. When we picked the two does up from the breeder after the MI State Rabbit Breeders' Convention, we met at an exit along the Interstate and transferred Frosty and Delight to our transport cages. It was snowing and cold, and a fun rabbit adventure that included attending Rabbit School the evening before, and meeting several new friends.
French Angora Doe - Black Foot's Popcorn
Popcorn was a favorite of everyone who met her. She had wonderfully dense wool and a personality that "popped" right out of her. Her antics during turnout time, or as she was hopping about the house, were rather entertaining.
Popcorn produced three lovely purebred litters of French Angoras for us that have shown well and that are great wool producers. Popcorn, like most of our French Angoras was litter trained - something she learned on her own. We keep litter pans in the corner of each rabbit dwelling, and Popcorn, like several of our rabbits have chosen to use the litter pans. It makes clean-up time very easy. We like the "Potty Boxes" available through Bass Equipment. They have a vinyl-coated wire grate that fits over the litter which keeps the Angora's wool off of the soiled litter (wood shavings or pellets).
Champ sired several show winners for us. He was a handsome broken chestnut and produced great looking show animals for us with nice, dense fiber. We have a new broken-coated chestnut buck who has filled Champ's role quite well. His name is Hackarian's Whalberg "Wally." Here is a link to photos of them in our Flickr album.
This pretty gal is Heartsong Mabel. (also in the large photo on the left) She is one of our own breeding here at Heartsong Rabbitry. Mabel is super friendly and beautiful, and she has also won the wool class in two outings. She has twice placed first in French Angora junior does, colored, and has won Best of Breed on two occasions as a senior doe. She is permanently registered with ARBA and has earned one leg towards her Grand Champion certification. Her wool density is extreme and is awesome for spinning.
