I met Michael King of King's Gems Rabbitry, Knoxville, Tennessee, along I-75 in Georgia today to pick up the little guy pictured to the left, as he traveled from his home down to Florida on vacation. He was selling a Garner-bred buck that had proven himself well, even producing a Blue Silver Martin buck that was being retained.
I was looking for a small, typey buck to add better conformation and breed traits to my BEW program, and I think this little guy will be a great addition. He is also a sweetheart. His color background includes black otters, a blue silver martin, black silver martins, a couple of chinchillas, and a squirrel. Should be interesting to see what he throws crossed with my girls.
I think that I may actually enter him in the Perry, GA ARBA show that will be held in February 2013 to see what the judges' opinions are. Looking forward to participating in my first rabbit show.
