Alberta Residents: Jan. 30-31 Wetaskiwin, AB Rabbit Show

Post Number:#1  Unread postby Knacker » Sat Jan 09, 2016 12:22 pm


I just wanted to mention a rabbit show I discovered yesterday for the end of this month. It's kind of cool that I discovered one so close to home after a brief search last night. We will not be entering, just discovering.

The main exhibits or whatever are birds, but there is also a rabbit show as per the poster (right under where it says: Wetaskiwin Drill Hall), and as per the E.A.R.S website. In this area of the world it would be unusual to have any show regarding rabbits, so I am going to take it for what it is and enjoy what little there is.

I'm hoping to find someone who breeds or knows of someone who breeds D'Argents around here.

That's great that there'll be a rabbit show near you! :P

I just wanted to ask how in the world one pronounces "Wetaskiwin"?

Wet-ask-i-win. Pretty much pronounce each individual word as it looks but without the pauses; and if you do make the pauses then you are pretty much pronouncing it in it's original Cree form. It's a Cree word that means "Hills of Peace". Most people unfamiliar with the name ask the same question, and that is pretty much anybody that doesn't live in Alberta.

I consider Wetaskiwin my hometown although I was born on the west coast.

Hi,

be sure to take some pictures, would be interesting how that buy/sell section looks like.

Just for reference, a few pictures of our monthly local small pet and livestock market :)

Hope you're going to stop in and say' Hi' Knacker. I'll be there and so will a couple others on here. EARS is always on the look out for new members so keep that in mind too, the AGM is that weekend as well.

I will make it a point to say hello, 3mina.

I have seen some pictures of your black otters here and I have to admit I have been a fan since I first discovered them. Will you be showing them?

I have to admit, and this is kind of strange but when I Googled the name "Lorazark" a house came up in Wetaskiwin, which is just down the street from where I grew up; the house was also right across the alley from my friend Don who raises hounds.

Maybe not you, but weird.

That was me, I also used Lorazark as my grooming business name as well. I adored those hounds, small world isn't it?

I'll have a couple of otter bucks at the show but nothing for sale until later this summer, I have exactly three, uh, four juniors right now, with three litters on the way. But I'm not going to actually expect to have anything in nestboxes until March, this is the first time in a few years I've tried breeding this early in the year.

I love my otters and I'll always have them. I'm also branching out, sables and ambers are going to be joining my herd as well

Yep, pretty darn small.

Reminds me of when I lived in Ireland a few years ago and met a women on a bus travelling from Lahinch to Dublin. Her being from Dublin happened to have spent a year in Canmore, worked at the Tim Hortons and hung out with old friends of the family I grew up with.

Canada maybe big in size but very small in population.

I too will be there, showing Satins. I will also bring some fleece and drop spindles and will be teaching people to spin! Bring a chair!

I know there are some local d'argent breeders so I am sure you will be able to make that connection.
