President’s Report “You Cannot hit a home run if you do not swing the bat."

~ Angel LeSage

Convention is just around the corner in Reno, Nevada. I think the venue will be great for the show. I am fearful there will not be as many attending because it is in the West. In my almost 30 years of showing and going to Convention this is only the 4th convention within driving distance for me. If possible, you should think about attending. There is nothing like Convention where you can meet so many people from around the country and be able to talk all you want about rabbits for five days. Additionally, nowhere else is there opportunity to see great rabbits from all over the county. Even if you are hesitant to show because “my rabbits aren’t good enough,” you will never know if you don't try. You cannot hit the home run if you don't swing the bat. Newbies are welcome. It is a good place to ask questions and learn about Woolies. The annual Golden Fleece Auction at Convention is a great place to buy quality Jersey Wooly rabbits. This year’s auction will take place on Monday, October 21 at 1 pm. If you cannot be there, find a friend to bid for you and participate live on your cell phone. The auction lineup is looking good. There will be a chance to look over and evaluate the rabbits before the auction starts. Also, we will post on FB and the website the animals up for auction about 3 weeks before Convention. Congratulations to Kira Martin and Rachael Wrobleski, recipients of the NJWRC Memorial scholarship. Two very deserving young ladies. Good luck in college to you both!

Reserve in Show (RIS) is the newest category the board has added to the sweepstakes program. RIS has never been awarded sweepstakes points in the past. How the points were to be tallied became controversial. There was a great deal of discussion by the board members on the methodology of how points would be calculated. The board included Nicole Schmitt, our sweeps chair, in the discussion for technical assistance. The controversy came about with how to tabulate the Best 4 Class and Best of Group points versus RIS points. See record of voting for the various suggested ways to breakdown the points. There are not many shows in the country that use the Best 4 Class/Best of Group to pick Best in Show (BIS) but how to calculate the RIS from Best 4 Class/Groups became difficult. The Board voted to have RIS, Best 4 Class, and Best Group all earn ½ point for every rabbit shown in the designated category rounded to the nearest full point. We are going to use this tabulation methodology for the 2019/2020 Sweeps year. The board plans to re-evaluate the tabulation formula next year. The Sweepstakes year has wrapped up for 2018/2019 with the final report being issued after September 1. Nicole Schmitt has done a spectacular job again this year. The club cannot thank her enough for all that she does to keep sweeps up to date. Since Nicole started, she has always been on time and accurate. Thank you, Nicole, we appreciate all your hard work!

President's Report cont'd from page 6

Some pointers for those working on sweepstakes points; first make sure a show is sanctioned. Check the show catalog but also check www.njwrcsweeps. com for shows that Nicole has sanctioned because sometimes the catalogs are wrong. If you do not find the show sanctioned, you need to follow up before the show. No shows will be sanctioned after the show has taken place. A club member can sanction Jersey Woolies but you will need the ARBA sanction numbers to get a JW sanction. Ask the show secretary for those ARBA sanction numbers. From there you can go onto the website www.njwrcsweeps.com for a sanction request form, fill out, print, and mail with a $10 check per show to Nicole. Club communication to members has been difficult this last 6 months. The website has not been working and we have been unable to find someone to take over managing the site. Currently T h e

F l u f f

we are in the process of rebuilding the site with a more user-friendly software. Jess Pearson has been working on it. The plan is to only get the home page up before Convention and have the auction animals for your review. We are going to have a shopping cart for purchases. You will be able to renew your membership and to buy trio tickets. Future plans include a range of club information and a large educational section. Besides working on the website, the board is setting up a Facebook Page that will provide you a quick check for club announcements, as well as, news on Convention & National shows. Haley (Birkholz) Jewel will be managing the site. We do not have any intention of hosting another discussion group. All we want is to provide club information. There are already two great Facebook JW groups that are active. We are only going to use the FB Page for NJWRC information and

updates. To enhance the site ISSUU (where the Fluff is posted), we have purchased a premium account to enable you to download the newsletter., the whole thing or just a single page. This goes into effect this issue. I am wrapping up my final year as president. I have to say the time has gone fast. I feel like I got a lot accomplished. I have written a number of guidelines and procedures for the club. When I started, there wasn’t even the basics on how the club operated. The Treasurer and Sweepstakes chair were unstable positions at the time. Those issues were resolved and things have been running pretty smoothly the last 4 years. However, it is time for me to move on. The club needs a new president with new ideas and a different approach. Thank you all for your support. F a l l

District 2 Report “The fresh enthusiasm and crystal clear goals we can bring home are invaluable" ~ Amber Henderson

Spring and summer shows have zoomed by. Favorite summertime shows were Carol Green's backyard show in cool, picturesque Portola Valley just south of San Francisco, and the two ocean-side shows by CRCS. One of these being in stunning Monterey on the central coast, and the other in delightful Cardiff-by-the Sea in Southern California. If you've not attended these shows before, be sure to mark them on your calendar for next year. If you've not competed at your local or state fairs, give them a try. Youth exhibitor, Bettina Curletto, did and won 3rd place in small animal Master Showmanship at the California State Fair. Wow! Congratulations, Bettina. Who is excited for the 96th ARBA Convention Show?! Barring baby season in early Spring, it is Fall that is the most exciting time of the year for rabbit breeders. This world class event highlights top quality rabbits from all across the continent attracts famous breeders, eager\exhibitors, wide-eyed spectators, and buyers from around the globe. It truly is a

rabbit enthusiast's wonderland! This year's location, Reno, NV, is well known for its affordable hotels, food, and entertainment so even if you have to travel a ways to get there, you're likely to save money on great deals during your stay, making this year's show more affordable than you think and definitely the one to attend. We all have our own reasons for going to Convention. Our very own ARBA Convention BOB winner, Lori Robasciotti, says this: "Okay, besides the friends, awesome rabbits, vendors, and new breeds/varieties... I love the way I feel and think afterward. I'm always reinvigorated and have a clear focus for my rabbitry." Yesss! There it is--the best reason to be there. Read that quote again. The fresh enthusiasm and crystalclear goals we can bring home are invaluable to the progress of our herds and well worth the trip! See you there.

District 4 Report “Not only is this crazy weather hard on us humans, it’s terrible for our rabbits." ~ Kendra Williams Hello District 4 members!

Kendra Williams

kthurmanwilliams@yahoo.com

Regions Represented: Arkansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, & Texas

I’ll just start by saying I can’t wait for Summer to be over! At the time I’m writing this it’s mid-August and most days it’s around 105 degrees for a huge portion of the day. My poor Woolies are so molted and sad looking I wonder if I’ll ever get them back into shape for the September shows that are right around the corner! But that’s the amazing thing about our breed. They never seem to stay out of shape very long once those cooler temperatures start happening. Speaking of cooler temperatures and getting rabbits ready to show, I’m sure most of you are starting to make your picks for Convention hopefuls. Convention will be here before we know it and you want

to take the best of your herd. Those Juniors you bred for are probably starting to really come into their own and by now a lot of you already know who you are entering. I’m not very good at planning my entries early. I usually wait until the very last second to enter. Convention is such an exciting time of year. If you have never been, then try to go! This year the Convention is October 20-23 in Reno! We have a NJWRC banquet and Auctions and Trio raffles. So many exciting things will be going on and it’s a great time to catch up with those friends that live all the way across the country that you never get to see. That’s my favorite part! I hope to see many of my District 4 friends there!

District 5 Report “Help them stay a little cooler by keeping them in cages closer to the floor." ~ Gayle Beirau

Gayle Beirau gbeirau@aol.com Regions Represented: Illinois, Kansas & Missouri

I'd like to start by giving a couple of our members a shout out! Layla Balassone from Missouri won RIS at the KSRBA Scholarships show in Wichita KS June 8th with her beautiful REW Doe "Country bunnies Sweet Pea". Congratulations Layla! Way to go and such a nice win! The other shout out goes to Karen Mezyk from Illinois, who had some nice wins with a couple of her bunnies. Her beautiful REW doe "Kare's Hare's Fluff" won BOB and her Broken buck "Kare's Hare's Shutterfly" took BOSB at the Rabbit Renegade's show at the June 15th Matoon, IL Jersey Wooly Specialty. Her doe then went on to take BISS. Way to go Karen! Congrats again ladies! Keep them coming!

With the summer’s heat here it's

nearly impossible to have a Wooly with any kind of coat. There are not too many shows at this time around here except for our County Fairs and then you’re lucky if you have a bunny in coat to show. It seems the only thing I have to show at this time is Juniors. I myself don't show too much in the summer, and what I've been looking forward to and planning for is Fall shows. Right now, in this heat, lots of bunnies are either in a full molt or looking sunburnt. I have some of my bunnies outside in hutches and I find them sitting up front in their cages enjoying the morning sun. That unfortunately turns their wool brown and you have to wait for it to molt out before you can show them. I try to put brood stock out in those cages so I don't have to worry about them getting their wool sunburnt. With the District 5 Report cont'd on page13

As I write this article for the Fluff, Louisiana has been in a heatwave; average temps running around 95C with heat index of 115. My fans and the sprinkler on top of the barn have been going full force. I have been fortunate that my woolies have battled the heat gallantly and I have not had any casualties. I hope everyone has fared as well. Convention time is upon us. My husband, Tyrone, and I will be heading west and will drive the 2,194 miles one-way to Reno, NV. This will be our first time in Reno. Unfortunately, I missed Nationals a couple of years ago and was unable to attend when it was held there. My biggest advice for anyone attending is make a list now of what you need. Most everyone has a cell phone and it has a “Note” app. Put your list on your phone and add to it as you go. In addition, another thing that I would like to mention is make sure your credit card that is holding your reservations is current. Nothing worse than arriving at a hotel and finding out your room was given to someone else because your card had expired. In writing of Convention, I would like to encourage those attending to bring

articles for the raffle table. The NJWRC could also use members to help run the raffle table. If you can spare an hour or two, it is greatly appreciated. It really goes without saying that we need runners on judging day as well. Woolies are usually judged on the first judging day, which this year is Sunday, October 20, 2019. I hope everyone can take a little time out of their plans and help support your club. Before I end, I would like to say that the club will be increasing the number of places for awards, i.e. sweepstakes, etc. This is one of the things that was discussed before the club went to digital copies of the Fluff. Some of the money from savings will be applied to offer the additional placement awards. I believe this is a good thing for the members.

District 8 Report “Texture is what makes our breeds coats "easy care" and density is what gives the coat life" ~Julie Aversa I have been busy moving the last few months. It has been a process and still don’t have everything organized. But the rabbits are in their new barn. I hope everyone who is going to Convention has a safe trip, and good luck on the tables!

Hey MEMBERS! Use your phone to access the NJWRC PayPal link: njwrclubtreasurer@gmail.com

In this issue of the Fluff, I would like to discuss the last third of the equation to a balanced rabbit: WOOL The Jersey Wooly coat is to exhibit “easy care” properties by virtue of the predominance of guard hairs. The coat should be full of life. Although the fibers may be spun, the coat should not be considered for commercial wool purposes. Note-Jersey Wooly is the only breed to have more points on Texture than Density. TEXTURE- points 18 The coat is to have a greater proportion of heavier, thicker guard hairs than crimped underwool, producing a slightly coarse texture. The ends of the longer guard hairs are to gently drape over the undercoat and to display a healthy luster. A smooth outline, produced by uniform length of the longer guard hairs is most important to form a uniform drape over the

underwool, thus giving a flowing appearance to the coat. Faults-Soft or cottony texture on a Senior coat. Very coarse texture. Matted or webbed coat, or erect coat. Bare spots. DENSITY-10 points Density is to be uniform. Density is to be assessed by feeling as well as blowing into the coat. When blowing into the coat, wool should separate all the way to the skin, without webbing or matting. There should be as much density as possible There should be enough density to give the coat life. Faults-Limp thin coat, severe molt, bare areas, matted and or webbed coats. Soft cottony coat. Erect coat not showing enough guard hairs to drape. LENGTH-No extra consideration should be given to a longer coat over a shorter coat of acceptable length. Wool on the underside of the animal may be shorter. The minimum length of wool is 1 ½ inches. Texture is what makes our breeds coats “easy care” and density is what gives the coat life. An abundance of either one makes the coat unbalanced. Too much density and not enough guard usually means a soft coat. Too much texture and you have a “hair like” coat. So, there you have it, the recipe for the perfect Jersey Wooly. May we all find one in our nest boxes. As we enter the fall show season, I wish you all luck, and remember to always show good sportsmanship. See you at the tables. Remember to send me those BIS and RIS photos! Julie Aversa

District 5 Report cont'd from page 13

Pointed Whites, it's a whole other story. The heat really seems to affect their color. Pointeds tend to lose their point color quite a bit. It fades really bad with the heat. I've had them lose their point color so bad that they look like a REW, or their ears can look Martinized. Once the weather cools off, their color does come back. You can try to help them stay a little cooler by keeping them in cages closer to the floor. Upper cages tend to be warmer since hot air rises. Or if you’re lucky enough to have them in air conditioning, that will make a big difference with helping to keep their color from fading.

13

Another thing you can do to help your bunnies stay cooler and get ready for fall showing is keep them groomed up. When you see your bunny is molting out his coat, take him out and give him a spa day. Remove all the loose wool, they will appreciate it and it will make cage cleaning a bit easier too. Not as much wool all over the cage. And don't forget to trim the nails. It's a lot easier for a bunny to break a long nail than those that are kept nice and short. Well that's all for now, and hope to see you at the Fall shows!

Youth Report “Improvement goals are a great way to keep yourself interested in breeding and help better the breed as a whole" ~ Lindsay Aversa

allstarwoolies@gmail.com

Youth Committee Chair for all Youth Jersey Wooly Members

T h e

F l u f f

As we all know, barn blindness is a thing all of us breeders go through. Barn blindness is when you are used to feeling your own rabbits and not looking for improvements. You can get out of this rut when you go to shows and feel fellow Jersey Wooly breeders’ rabbits. The way I deter myself from getting barn blindness is by setting goals for myself, and it is good to start small and work your way up. When I got started in Jersey Woolies, I had an issue with proper placement of ears. I worked on ear placement for about a year being very disciplined on those that I kept, and I achieved my goal. Something so little can make a big difference

14

and make you feel great when you accomplish that goal! Improvement goals are a great way to keep yourself interested in breeding and help better the breed as a whole. As you work on the little things; coat, ears, head, etc., then you can work on things like your placings on the table, getting a first-place ribbon was my first goal, then I worked up to having the goal of winning a Best Four Class. These things can help motivate you to learn more about the breed, because there is always something new to learn! My goal currently is to work on color in blacks and blues. What is your goal?

Standard currently reads BODY---Points 30: The body is to be short and compact, with depth to approximately equal width. The shoulders are to be of nearly the same width as the hindquarters. The midsection is to be well filled. Hindquarters are to be full and well rounded. The top line is to rise slightly, from a strong shoulder, rounding in a smooth curve to the base of tail. Note: The body must be assessed by feeling and not by sight alone. The wool may alter the visual concept of the body type.

Posing: A Jersey Wooly should be posed in a relaxed, natural position to display a high head mount, thus accentuating the compact type and bold head. A Jersey Wooly should not be stretched out or over tucked. The head must not be pushed or forced down, nor should it be overmanipulated to pose unnaturally high. These practices distort the desired conformation.

2019 NJWC YOUTH SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT

RACHEL WROBLESKI

Thank you for selecting me to be a recipient of the NJWRC Memorial Scholarship. I am excited and looking forward to attending college.Everyone coming out of high school has an idea, some more than others, of what they want their career to be. As that high school student making the step to college, I have decided I want to study veterinary medicine or genetics. I have always enjoyed science, especially the biological sciences. I know what careers I wish to study, but the way I have decided to achieve my educational goals is slightly different than the average path. I want to attend a strong liberal arts college for a liberal arts degree. I have selected the colleges I plan on attending primarily for the strength of their classical education in the liberal arts. At these colleges, I would study the original works of great authors in historical, scientific, mathematical, and philosophical fields. I would read the works of the great thinkers of history, not just textbook commentaries on them. I thrive in a challenging academic environment and I’m excited to attend college where I am able to broaden and add depth to what I have already learned. My goal is to learn how to think, not what to think. With that background, I could go into genetics or veterinary medicine without the over-specialization and lack of openness to new ideas which tend to dominate those professions. To achieve fulfillment in either profession takes more than just a detailed knowledge of the specific details: it takes a well-rounded person who can form logical conclusions and understand a variety of viewpoints. As with any other rabbit breeder, I’ve had multiple successes and failures. One of my greatest successes was with my first homegrown pointed. It was a little doe with a natural pose who even as a junior showed herself off on the table. At the time, I was just learning what a nice animal really looked like, and so I kept that doe just to see how she grew up. In her second show when she was three months old, she was best of breed over some of the nicest animals in the state. This was my first best of breed with one of my own babies. It was a great feeling. My little pointed doe went on to win best of group at Nationals in 2018. Sadly, I lost her in kindling last year. I would like to share some of the challenges I’ve had raising Jersey Woolies. Being from a very rural area of western Montana, there are relatively few Jersey Wooly breeders, and those who do breed Woolies haven’t raised them for very long. As a youth breeder T h e

F l u f f

who started recently, I’ve struggled figuring out what a quality animal looks and feels like. To overcome this difficulty, I have taken to asking a lot of questions to any breeder and trying to get my hands on as many Woolies as possible. The lack of breeders makes it difficult to get quality stock as well. This is especially tough for


me, because I’m trying to focus on pointed whites which are relatively hard to acquire anyway. This has made me work on my own culling and breeding much more than if I could easily buy replacement stock. Hopefully, as I continue raising and showing Woolies, these challenges will shrink. However, in a way I’m grateful for these difficulties as they have made me develop a better understanding of the breed and how to raise it To close, I have some people to thank. I would like to thank

Ashley Felton of M an’ M Rabbitry for selling me my foundation herd. Without her help, I wouldn’t be breeding Jersey Woolies. I would especially like to thank fellow breeders in District One and those I’ve met at regional and national shows for letting me feel their animals and teaching me how to evaluate and recognize a quality animal. Lastly, I want to give a big thank you to the National Jersey Wooly Rabbit club for awarding me this scholarship.

2019 NJWC YOUTH SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT

KIRA MARTIN at nine weeks old, she managed to bring home Best in Show at the same show that started it all. It was an amazing day! Since then, my herd has grown tremendously, and I have just reached my third generation from that line. I am very thankful to all those who have mentored me and answered my countless questions, and have truly enjoyed learning how to improve my herd one step at a time. I plan to continue with my rabbits for as long as I can, but will cut down on shows and numbers in order to focus on college.

I am so excited and honored to be the recipient of this year’s NJWRC scholarship. My name is Kira Martin, and I live in north Texas. I recently graduated from high school with high hopes of becoming a veterinarian in the future. I started raising rabbits in my freshman year of high school, when I bought my first rabbit, a Dwarf Hotot, to show at our annual FFA show. I was convinced that I loved the breed, and tried my best to persuade my mom why it was a good idea to fill our garage with rabbits. I attended my first ARBA show in June 2016, and with some insane luck, my feisty Dwarf Hotot received Best in Show. I was instantly hooked with the rabbit show world. The next ARBA show I went to, I stumbled across a couple balls of fluff for sale. Despite my mom’s best efforts, I just had to take home a little blue otter Jersey Wooly doe. When I first began my Jersey Wooly herd, I knew I had severely limited space to work with. With that thought in mind, I was extra careful about what rabbits I bought from there. I was very lucky to have an amazing mentor, Elise Swanson, who emphasized the importance of pairing the right rabbits together. I waited several months before I finally found the doe I was looking for, which happened to be Mudblood’s Poppy, daughter to Mudblood’s Muffin Bite (Nationals BOB ‘14). I bred her to Rolling Hills Henry, and my first litter produced a tiny black otter doe. In June 2017, T h e

F l u f f

I am attending Collin County Community College here in Texas for my first year, and plan to transfer to Texas A&M to graduate early with a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science. From there, I will apply to veterinary school at Texas A&M, and hopefully achieve my lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian. For as long as I can remember, my biggest passion has been to study veterinary science and care for animals. I love interacting with animals and being a part of ensuring their health for their owner. I want to become deeply involved in saving animals, and discover something mind-blowing that will help all pets. Currently, I am a veterinary assistant at a small animal hospital, training in technical skills, and hope to become certified by the end of summer through the Texas 4-H program. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity that this scholarship has granted me, and even more so for the people who have been there for me. I have learned so much from my mother, who has always been able to answer my questions about veterinary science and is my biggest supporter for my rabbitry. Because of her, I have been able to manage my crazy schedule, and don’t think I have to worry about selling out anytime soon. It has been quite the journey learning how to maintain a small rabbitry as well as keep excellent school grades, but I know that whether or not I take a break from rabbits to complete college, I will always return to the rabbit show world no matter where life takes me. Raising and showing Jersey Woolies will always be an important and irreplaceable piece of my life, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the NJWRC’s generosity and support. This meaningful opportunity has inspired me to do my best work in school, and I can’t wait to see what the future brings for not just myself, but everyone else.

ALEXANDRIA, LOUISIANA: JERSEY WOOLY NATIONALS

YOUTH BEST OF BREED

ASHLEY LANDIS & ALLSTAR'S LEO Wow! What an awesome way to end Ashley’s last Jersey Wooly Nationals as a youth! She only brought 1 jersey wooly to show at Nationals in Alexandria, LA and is very humbled that he was chosen as Youth Best of Breed. They always say that “it only takes 1 to win” and they were right. Allstar’s Leo (ear # S) has been such an amazing addition to Ashley and Cody’s Jersey Wooly herd. He has quickly become one of their top herd bucks and a favorite in the barn and at the shows due to his sweet, calm personality. Leo goes back to the amazing Erb’s Barbossa (ear #BAR) who ended his show career with over 50 legs. Along with Youth BOB at Nationals, Leo has also won a BIS and multiple BOBs so far. We can definitely see his amazing genetics coming through with his 1st couple of litters. We hope that he continues to outproduce himself in future litters. Leo’s son AFB’s Panda Bear won Youth Best

JR at Nationals this year in Louisiana and has gone on to win 2nd Reserve in Show and multiple BOBs as a JR this past spring. We can’t thank Julie and Lindsay Aversa of Allstar’s Rabbitry enough for sending this amazing rabbit to us. You have helped us in so many ways and we are so proud to call you guys our friends. The awesome friends are what make this hobby so great. Ashley is looking forward to spending her last ARBA Convention as a youth in Reno, NV this Oct. She is also excited to start a new chapter, get to meet new breeders, make new friends and expand her knowledge as she starts showing in Open this coming April. We hope to see many of you in Reno or on the show tables this fall. Keep passing on the Wooly Love to all of the new and existing breeders whether they show in youth or open. You can NEVER have enough Wooly Peeps!!

ALEXANDRIA, LOUISIANA: JERSEY WOOLY NATIONALS

YOUTH BEST OPPOSITE OF BREED

KIRA MARTIN & HHH MISTLETOE

I’m so thrilled that my REW doe, HHH Mistletoe, received BOS this year at Nationals. This was the first time I attended a National show, and I feel blessed to have had such an amazing experience. My passion for Woolies began a few years ago through FFA, and I am very thankful to those who answered my many questions (and still do!) as I grew my herd. I was extremely picky about what animals I purchased, and it took me several months of waiting to find HHH Pine Lake, Mistletoe’s dam. She was the second Wooly doe I decided to invest in. I am incredibly grateful to Hannah Stubbs, who sent me Pine Lake bred to her gorgeous REW buck, HHH Travis. Pine Lake arrived with two kits sired by Travis, resulting in two-time BIS winning HHH Cory, and due within a couple weeks to Travis again. Out of a litter of four REW does, Mistletoe instantly stood out to me. She was born around Christmas 2017, along with her sister, Blizzard. Blizzard was always the drama queen of the two, and held great potential for show, but I could never part with either sister, and eventually could never decide which

T h e

F l u f f

one to keep. I showed the two against each other for a while, and it was always fun to watch judges stack the two against each other closely. One of the most memorable shows with the two was last year at Mesquite, where Blizzard took a triple BOB in open, and Mistletoe had a quadruple BOB in youth. As time moved closer to Nationals, I wasn’t confident in either doe. Both were threatening to molt, and I almost scratched Mistletoe the day before. However, I was extremely surprised and fortunate to watch Mistletoe receive BOS at Nationals and BOB in the specialty show. I feel incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have attended this show and met so many amazing Wooly breeders, as well as share the excitement with my fellow exhibitors. Mistletoe’s win has been incredibly special to me, and she truly is the heart of my herd. I will forever be thankful to Hannah Stubbs for sharing this breeding with me, and making this dream possible. Mistletoe is one of those special buns that will never leave our barn.

2019 ARBA CONVENTION

RENO, NEVADA

It’s that time of the year, ARBA Convention is coming to Reno, Nevada, October 19 – 23. I can hardly wait to put those new juniors on the show table and see how they do, shop for supplies and rabbits to buy, and hang out with old and new friends. If you have never been to convention, I recommend you try attending. It is like a regular show yet much, much better. You will get to meet folks from all over the country and will never have to apologize for talking “rabbits” all the time. If you are a youth it can be even more exciting. There are a variety of ARBA contests just for Youth. It is an opportunity to buy quality rabbits. The best bonus of all is that Convention is where you can find the largest concentration of the country’s best breeders. We will be having our awards banquet on Tuesday, so please watch Facebook for details. All you need is to RSVP and pay when you arrive at the restaurant. Additionally, there will be the JW booth where Wooly items are for sale. There will be a NJWRC general membership meeting on Monday morning. Also, in Convention tradition, there will be a raffle for a Trio of Jersey Woolies. The Trio is comprised of 2 does and a buck with pictures available 3 weeks before Convention on FB. This year’s Trio is going to be outstanding. You can buy raffle tickets on the NJWRC site (NJWRC.org) or at the NJWRC booth. Be sure you have all your transporting arrangement made before “winning” the Trio. And, as always, you will have an opportunity to buy a rabbit at the Golden Fleece Auction on Monday at 1pm. Three weeks before Convention, pictures will be posted with bios on each rabbit. All auction animals are selected before Convention and there are a limited number of animals in the auction. If you are a newbie, the Trio raffle and Auction are two really great places to get your Jersey Wooly start. There are lots of us around to help you with your selection, if you need assistance. Join us on Facebook --- National Jersey Wooly Rabbit club page, as well as on the groups “Jersey Woolies” and “Jersey Wooly Group” in the FB group discussion section. There will be a lot of information shared about Convention on FB. The website will have Trio tickets available for purchase at www.NJWRC.org for those not attending.

Nationals 2020

The North East Jersey Wooly Breeders are hard at work preparing to host the Jersey Wooly nationals on April 18th, 2020 in Syracuse, NY! Our theme is 20:20 Vision. Our show will be Saturday only, held at the state fairgrounds in conjunction with a double open and youth all-breed show sponsored by North Country Rabbit and Cavy Breeders. Michelle Landis will be the secretary for the national show, Steven Buell will be the superintendent for the national and all breed show.

Our open judges are Ryan Fedele and Corey Hayesy The youth judges are Donna Grimm and Don Sheets.

The plan (not set in stone), is that we will have these judges flip-flop for the all-breed show. We are planning to have an award for best junior of breed. By my calculations, you all will need to start breeding for this a few weeks after receiving this newsletter. The boutique is in the process of being set up. The order will be delivered as one to nationals and distributed there.

The banquet will be at Spaghetti Warehouse on Saturday night. This is about a 5-minute drive from the hotel, most of it is highway. Our host hotel will be the Comfort Inn; booking should be open very soon for this. There is a bar in the hotel and a Denny’s and Dunkin Donuts right around the corner. For those of you flying in, Syracuse Hancock International Airport is about 5 minutes from the hotel. Again, pretty much all highway driving to get there. See you all soon!
