We will happily allow visitors to our rabbitry, by appointment only.
My Rabbit Story & All About Our Rabbity
Hello! My name is Patsy Lane, as a young child I raised Silver Martin rabbits for 4-H. Although it was a lot of work for a ten year old, I found raising rabbits a pleasure. So later on when my own daughter expressed an interest in joining 4-H and raising rabbits I jumped at the chance to help her along. I now, along with my family, have a small family run rabbitry. We prefer to keep our rabbitry small to ensure we can provide the best show quality rabbits we can, whether they are used for show, meat, or just a wonderful pet! We currently have thirty-five holes in our main barn, and four additional cages in our isolation barn, which we use for rabbits that have been to shows/are not feeling well. We keep all new arrivals and "just shown" bunnies isolated for at least two weeks to ensure they are healthy and able to join the rest of our herd. Each of our barns have windows on all sides for proper ventilation. We keep a strict 35 hole maximum for our rabbitry. All of our breeding stock is of show quality, as expressed by the ARBA Standard of Perfection book specifications.
Health and Care of Our Rabbits
Our rabbits are groomed regularly. We have a special grooming table to aid in grooming, complete with all of the right brushes. Our rabbits nails are clipped once a month, or when needed. They are kept in very good health, and kits are played with as often as possible by my three young children and also visiting 4-H children, as well as myself and my husband. During the summer, we keep fans blowing in the rabbits' general direction, as well as frozen water bottles in each of their cages to help keep them cool. During the winter, we put blankets over the rabbit's cages on very cold nights and days. This keeps the heat in their cage, and keeps them warm. All of our rabbits are housed in a medium-sized, very clean, bunny barn with windows/doors on each side for proper ventalation.
A Special Thank You!
We would like to thank Mackenzie Sturman, of Whisper's Rabbitry for all of her excellent guidance,
