ANGORA RABBITS

Once Upon A Time

21 years ago I read an article about the English Angora rabbit. Though I had never seen one, I wanted one and a call to our local extension agent got us a list of breeders that had English Angora rabbits for sale.  We found that an English Angora rabbit breeder lived only a half an hour away. Viewing English Angora rabbits for the first time was amazing and fun. We bought an aging, sweet doe named Willow and then, of course, we needed another one or two as it would be fun to have bunnies. Along came Stephanie and Pat who produced several English Angora bunnies for us.  We joined the American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA) and attended rabbit shows to show our rabbits. Days at rabbit shows were laid back and entertaining with congenial folks. It was good to get away for the day and fun to show our English Angora rabbits spending time discussing one of our favorite hobbies with other enthusiasts.

The Present

My fondness for the English Angora rabbit has remained and I am still an English Angora breeder. I raise colored Angoras as I enjoy the potpourri of wool hues. I have solid and agouti banded colored rabbits.
When selecting the Angora rabbits I want to breed I consider temperament, wool quality & body type.   I am a "hand spinner" which means I spin the wool on a spinning wheel into yarn. I have found that hand spinners automatically assess things by texture; which means I know how I like my rabbits’ coats to feel.  My experience showing rabbits has helped me to know quality body type, & almost all of my rabbits are sweet tempered. I have found that sweet tempered parents make for sweet tempered offspring.
