A big hello to everyone! And, an ever bigger apology for the lack of content and communication. I am especially sorry to those who have written and inquired about the availability of our American Chinchillas. To you all I will be responding to your emails as soon as possible.
It's been a difficult couple of years for us here at home. The rabbitry has been holding its own, but we have not been breeding for pairs or trios, or even for showing, as we have in the past. We lost a few of our herd, one of which was our prized Am Chin doe, Jana. Jana was just over two years of age. Her death was completely unexpected and we were left reeling for quite some time. In addition, we lost our last two precious Holland Lops, Gidget, from our original herd, who was six years old, and Poppet, Gidget's granddaughter, who was four.
Hubby and son usually oversee the breeding of our herd. Besides the unexpected deaths, our son is a senior in high school this year and that has brought with it a whole host of activities and things to do. As of this writing, we are in the home stretch with graduation less than six weeks away. And, all the while visits to universities and trade schools have kept us busy in the search for a venue in which our boy could continue his education.
I have been ill with a chronic condition and have needed hubby to help me with domestic tasks. I am facing a fairly serious surgery soon. Recovery time is expected to be 9 months to one year. Our breeding program will continue, but at a much slower pace. News and updates to this blog will be more frequent, I hope.
Wishing you all peace and good health.
