New Arrival!

Thanks to Jennifer Townsend, Smokey's Kibbles, now lives here at our barn! I'm sorry to see Jen have to sell out of Mini Lops for the time being, but I'm thrilled to have Kibbles here. Kibbles is out of Hoppin's Britney, who was a beautiful doe I had sold to Erik from Smokey's Bunny Barn in WA last year. I never got to keep anything out of Britney before she left, so I'm glad to have Kibbles here.

I'll be breeding Kibbles to Lam soon hopefully and should have a full litter of lilacs!! They should be some nice, beautifully colored babies.

And just for fun, a picture of one of the outside kittens :).

Rainy Days & Baby Buns

We've had a rainy few days lately, which has been really nice...we needed rain!

The ducks all have had fun playing in the rain and the puddles it's created. They sure are funny to watch!

Quadra's babies are now 3 weeks old and doing great. They are ADORABLE, fat little squishy munchkins! She has 1 buck and 1 doe. Aren't smoke pearls beautiful?!

I have an on-going saga with my red buck, William. He is S-L-O-W-L-Y maturing, but he is SO tiny. He's just 4.4 lbs at 8 months old and has absolutely no interest in breeding, which is very discouraging. Here is he next to my 3 1/2 month old junior, Goldie. She's just an average size ML junior...he is just a .... shrimp, LOL!

I also have some really sad news. I had to put down one of my red does, Sunrise. She was the nicer as far as body type goes of the two does. So, that is a bummer. She went off feed the end of last week and suddenly came down with wry neck. I started treating her as soon as I noticed her head tilt and I had to put her down less than 48 hours later. It progressed so fast, she was rolling within 1 1/2 days. It was by far the most aggressive wry neck I have ever seen. Very sad :(.

On a better note, here are a couple's a couple recent pictures of my other red doe, Vixie. She is maturing nicely and finally starting to fill in some! Hopefully we'll have red babies soon.....

Been awhile...

It's been quite awhile since I've posted much on here. I've been blogging regularly over here and this has been put on the back burner.

The website has been updated. New litters have been born. Their info is up on the site. Abilene's babies have also had new pictures put up (individual pictures at 3 weeks old), which you can see here.

One of the newest developments in the barn...Shelby a new little  kitten. She has the coolest eyes - one is blue and one is blue-green! What a sweet kitten she is :).

Lily is one of my youngest juniors. She was born the middle of August from Rum (X Scotch). Very wide, smooth girl.

Goldie (full name of Golden Cadillac) is another one of my young juniors. She's a beauty out of Lam!

Abrielle is one of my older juniors. She's such a pretty girl!

Here's just a couple pictures of Abilene's babies. They are all SO adorable!

Here's a color comparison between a chocolate chinchilla (left) and a silver tip'd chocolate steel (right)

Quadra's two babies. Both beautiful smoke pearls!

The newest litter is a litter of 3 (4 were born, 1 was DOA) out of Abby. This is Scotch's last litter here, as of right now :(.

One of her two solid chocolate chinchillas.

And her little broken black chinchilla.

A hilarious picture of the kitties playing together!!
