2014 ARBA Nationals in Fort Worth

Post Number:#1  Unread postby Sinnfox » Wed Mar 19, 2014 2:53 am


I know its a bit early...but anyone decided if they are going? I know I will and I'd post my breeds, but well the best rabbits I have are mutts o.o If some of you are going though meeting any of you would be awesome. :) >.> and to be honest I'd love to see if I can get rabbits from people from the forum. ^.^ figure earlier I find out who's going the sooner I can figure out who to beg to let me buy some rabbits :P

Perhaps this could be Pinned . Then it won't get lost as the year progresses... and RTers can post what they might have...or what they are looking for...

I will be there, and I am really looking forward to meeting any RT'ers that are attending! :bouncy:

I will be bringing Rex and Satins for sure, and possibly Beveren if I still have them at that point.

I'm planning on attending :-) I'm already seeing a lot of hopefuls in upcoming juniors. I don't think I'm going to show more than 3 though LOL I did 3 last year and it's KILLER finding your rabbits if they are all different sex,age,& variety. Word of advice: MAKE A TAG THAT STICKS OUT. (It needs to be able to catch your eye but also literally stick out from the cage lol) I put lime green duct tape and tagged them, but it seemed to be a popular color haha

We plan on going, (husband and I and the mutts). We'll be camping at the show site. I'll be showing giant, satin and french angora. Possibly an english or two, but remains to be seen. I might show a tan or two and a satin or two. I will have multiple angoras for sale in every breed. I will also be offering transport. Being that its a 1200 mile drive I gotta pay for fuel and the hired hand somehow! LOL

Just an FYI for those attending, Ft Worth has ordinances for leaving rabbits in vehicles. We attended MR Nationals two weeks ago in Ft Worth so I would suggest purchasing sales coops or keep in your hotels. Sounds like it will be in multiple buildings and kind of spread out, might be a little challenging but I am sure the Texas clubs are prepared!

I have an aunt in Fort Worth, but I think I'll need to visit her before early November. A little bird has been telling me to do so, and November doesn't make the little bird happy.

I'll almost HAVE to fly, though, if I do attend the ARBA show; it's almost the only way I can guarantee that I won't acquire extra animals there! If I were to drive, heaven only knows how many I'd try to cram into the car....then I'd get home and say, "What was I thinking? I have no outdoor space...."

Gotta work on something here.... One of which is finding a new job to afford all of this! (I was laid off 3 March and promptly acquired a leg infection, which confined me to bed/couch most of March and early April.)

RexisBest, you are correct. It is very against the rules to leave a rabbit in the vehicle, and most hotels don't allow them. That is why we are offering on site care. We are camping at the show grounds and will have a trailer outfitted for rabbit housing. For those interested, here is the link with details and prices.

At this point in time, I'd probably have to say we can't make it. A lot would have to change between now and then. They split my husband's territory, and now they're running him even more ragged. :(

I can make the Cajun Classic in Houma, though, Memorial Day weekend. :)
