How Much is Too Much to Spend on a Rabbit?

The ARBA national convention is this weekend and I’ve been having several discussions with different breeders about their purchasing budget.

Convention is a two-edged sword, because on one hand it’s a wonderful opportunity to spread bloodlines across the country and have access to livestock you can’t normally get because of distance. 647 more words

Pet Rabbits

What DID work - carry-on only

See these two cute little bags?  They totally pulled it off.  I packed everything in them coming and going and carried them both on.  My little blue suitcase is not the maximum allowable size, so it easily slid into the overhead compartments of all three Southwest planes I flew on.   336 more words


What DID work - patches

So I brought the patches.  The whole gallon bag of them.  And swapped a LOT.  I’m really happy about this lovely stash of patches.  There are a lot from the various Texas Councils, because we all sat together, so they were easy to get to, and a lot from Ohio, because there were a lot of volunteers and staff  from Ohio helping out here to see how it’s done (the Utah staff and volunteers came and helped out at ours 3 years ago for the same reason).   256 more words

National Convention

What DID work - exercise

(trying to take a picture of yourself on a treadmill is hard)

Since I am trying to get in better shape, I made a promise to myself that I would get down to the fitness center in my hotel (with FOUR treadmills) every morning and start the day with an hour of walking. 398 more words
