English Spots and shows?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby TeaTimeBunnies » Mon Jun 05, 2017 11:50 am


First, does anyone know of rabbit shows in Tennessee, and if they have English Spots at them? Second, this is the one I'm thinking about showing; can anyone tell me how well y'all'd think she'd do? She's still only 3months and a bit underweight, but I'm getting her where she needs to be.

http://arba.net/showsSearch.php
You can use that to look up upcoming rabbit shows.

From these pictures, I can't see any obvious DQs. So not too bad, for an English spot. The eye circles might be a bit weak, and I cant tell about the shoulders though. I'm not sure if they'll be any English spots at those shows (I'm on the west coast), but the lady I bought mine from is not to far away (mary henry in Illinois)
I have shown: argente brun, Belgian hare, Britannia petite, dutch, English spot, Flemish giant, harlequin, Havana, Himalayan, Holland lop, jersey wooly, mini lop, mini rex, netherland dwarf, new Zealand, polish, standard chinchilla, tan, velveteen lop; American & coronet cavies

Thank you!! I'll look into that website. If you don't mind my asking SableSteel, how did you transport your rabbits from her? I'm also looking for new bloodlines. There are only two breeders I can find here in TN, and one of them has decided not to talk to me at all after I asked if they'd have any rabbits to sell in December, when I'd be in the general area and we'd be able to decide a meeting place. The other breeder is where I got my rabbits from, and she is an absolute gem. I love working with her. She always keeps to schedules for meetings unless something she couldn't control happens, and always gives me a hard copy of pedigrees and emails me copies

I bought from her at nationals (I think it was in texas that year). The best way to find transport is to find transport to or from shows. See if anybody in your area is going to shows around her, that she'd be attending, or if she or anybody she knew was coming down to TN for a show in the future. If you are looking for a good breeder, though, I'd definitely recommend her. She's super helpful, and her rabbits are pretty (it looks like she won best in show at English spot nationals this year)

A picture straight down at her shoulders might be better. The shoulders are the most common place to see breaks in the spine marking, so I'm looking at the marking there. It's hard to tell actual type without the rabbit running or posed. They are judged on their gait as part of their type.

It took me FOREVER, but I finally got these pictures of her shoulder area. She always insists that it is attention time and nothing else :lol:

Looks kinda faded in the shoulder, maybe it will darken when she molts out?
