Spring is on its way here in New England. The days are getting longer, the sunshine feels warmer. This is also the time of year that I start breeding does. I love this time of year. This time of year means baby bunnies!!!! I love baby bunnies. They're so soft and seeing them grow is the most amazing thing. Everyday there is something new they are doing. One day they will barely be moving around, and the next they are hopping everywhere.
So here is my line up for this year. I usually only do two breedings this time of year, but I have one doe that was very resistant to breeding and she may not have took.
Breeding 1: For my first breeding is one that I love and have gotten beautiful kits from before. This pairing is Butterscotch (Fawn) and Blizzard (Blue-Eyed White) Butterscotch is a wonderful mother and it has come so naturally for her. Blizzard is one of my sweetest boys and always wants to snuggle. They both have the Vienna gene and I'm hoping to get some beautiful Vienna marked babies (the photo above is a Vienna mark black).
Breeding 2: Breeding number two is one that was not originally planned, but I'm interested in seeing what the results will be. This one is with my trouble, picky doe Gylfie (Chestnut) and my outgoing boy Jack (Opal). I originally wanted to breed Gylfie with my sweet boy Wolfgang (Smoke-pearl), but she wanted nothing to do with him what so ever! He lost interest fast when he realized that she wasn't into him. So I put her in with Jack and she reluctantly let him do the deed then proceeded to pout in the corner. So we'll see if she took and what we'll get.
Breeding 3: This one happened because I am not sure if Gylfie took. I was going to do this pairing this summer so I just moved it up. This breeding I'm super excited about. This one is with Everest (Red-Eyed White Satin) and Stewart (Chocolate Satin).
I am Amanda Fontaine, I run Samollynn Angoras and have been doing so for about five years now. I hope to spread not only the lovely fiber that they share with me, but the knowledge that I have learned over the years from others, and my own experience.
