Hi, from Scotland, :D

Post Number:#1  Unread postby elmbankrabbits » Sun Jan 09, 2011 3:55 pm


Hi :)

My name is Vivien, I am from Scotland :D

Well, I 5 rabbits at the moment. 3 orange netherland dwarfs (which I used to breed from) and 2 crosses (who live together ).

The 3 nethies are Rowan (who does rabbit jumping http://www.youtube.com/user/Elmbankrabb ... Mx--ZNGDKw)
Harriet, and Fiver (who is actually a girl lol). I used to breed these lovelys until out popped little baby Shaun, who unfortunatly had many problems which sadly caused his recent death :(

I hope to be able to restart up the breeding side eventually, but need to find some more rabbits.

The 2 crosses live together in a converted wendy house. Ebony I suspect is a giant cross and is steel in colour. Poppy I got from the local rescue, she is a dwarf lop cross with lovely magpie colour/ markings.

Anyway, I look forward to having a wee look round this place

Hello Vivian and welcome to RabbitTalk! :hi:

Bunny jumping seems to be a popular sport on your side of the Atlantic. I think it would be great if it catches on over here too. Hope you enjoy the forums. :)

Thank you :)

Well, there are a few of us over here who are trying to promote it. We have a wee club going at the moment ( http://www.rabbitjumpinguk.moonfruit.com/ ) which is doing quite well, we gained quite a few new members last year :)

I think there is some rabbit jumping over in the US, more than in the UK but I suppose you guys must be so spaced out its hard to meet with everyone which has really helped our group.

:lol: heyy Charlotte :)

Do you give them a wee dram before they do the jumping? :lol: Single malt, I trust.

thanks guys

hey Emma :)

ladysown, I think any rabbit that is confident and active would be good at it. We have found that our Dutch breed of rabbit tends to be quite good. I know a few people in the US who use tans and rhinelanders. In sweden they have a lot of the smaller lops. (some of the bigger/ giant rabbits I would not think it be advisable to do it very high lol)

Half Caper Farm, :lol: ovcourse ;) how else do you think we get them over the higher ones 8-)

Devon, ah yes, in Canada they have that club that I think I have seen videos of on youtube. :)
It should be good to talk to other people who are doing this. We only have a small group of about 8 who actually go out to shows to do jumping displays/ comps. We are hoping after the next big show we will gain more publicity.

I think Rabbit Jumping is more popular on the West Coast of the Americas, at the moment. I've seen a couple of adverts for shows her in the Midwest..but nothing really big yet, I think. I have enough trouble keeping the rabbits from jumping OUT of my pens...no way I'm training them to leap tall fences just yet! :lol:

Hi Vivien, it is great to meet you.

This is terrific for the forum, as we have acquired 2 new foreign members in the same day! :) I should not say "foreign" but "international" as this is a website for the world. (actually, since the website is in Canada, I am a foreigner :oops: )

We hope you will post often and tell us about the way rabbits are raised and housed in your area.
