Shearing Day

IMG_5984

 

Autumn means time for shearing and breeding.  The temperatures have cooled significantly for breeding, but still warm enough for shearing without taking excessive measures to keep rabbits warm at night.

Willa is a one year old doe with a massive coat and beautiful conformation.  Today was shearing day for her as she was nearing her 90 day mark and was slowing down in eating.  Being a nice warm day for November, it was a perfect day to shear.

    What a lovely coat! I don’t know a lot about rabbits, but have a good feeling looking at this farm news. 🙂
