President’s Report “The Club has many responsibilities at Convention, and everyone has the opportunity to lend a hand and join in on the fun.”" I’m very pleased to say that RoseMarie “Bunnie” Turley has agreed to be our new managing editor for the Fluff, taking over the job of soliciting articles, photos and content for the FLUFF, and proofreading the issue before publication. It’s a job that Bunnie dove right into with enthusiasm! Please join me in welcoming her to this position. There is already a buzz of excitement about this year’s ARBA Convention in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The Club has many responsibilities at Convention, and everyone has the opportunity to lend a hand and join in on the fun. Julie Aversa has already begun working to organize our club booth. I really appreciate all of the ideas and energy going into this. Jersey Wooly Nationals is coming right up on April 18, 2020 in Syracuse. The Northeast Jersey Wooly Breeders Club has been doing a great job advertising and getting information out about their show. They have an event page up on Facebook, information on our club website, and elsewhere in this publication. Speaking of the club website, we have been advertising our new website, www.njwrclub.org on Facebook. Unfortunately, our old website has not yet been taken down. We’ve had some issues with support on that site, which are the more reason to move to the new website. If you are looking at a site that seems outdated, you’re in the wrong place! I encourage you to check our new website. Besides Club information, and Nationals information, we are happy to have a shopping cart on the new site which will allow you to order your membership, and pay via Paypal. You will still need to fill out the membership or renewal form, also available on the website, and send it to our editor, Doug Brown. Doug gets some information from the “cart,” and you need to provide your full information to him in order to receive your newsletter links and ensure

sweepstakes points are credited.

We have some important application deadlines. First, Scholarship applications are due on April 1st. We give out up to two scholarships per year in the amount of 1000.00. Candidates must have been a member of the NJWRC for a minimum of two years, and must be completing high-school in the same year they apply for the scholarship. Full requirements for the scholarship are listed on the application published in this magazine. Nomination petitions to run for open board positions this year are due by May 10th to our Secretary, Doug Brown. This year, Representatives for even-numbered districts, Vice President and Secretary will be elected. All requirements are listed on the application. Any board member will be happy to answer your questions about board positions. Finally, bids to host the 2022 Nationals will be due in by March 1st. Bids forms are available from our Secretary. Your board has been busy these last three months with filling positions left vacant on the board, and appointing a new Constitution and Bylaws committee. We have discussed and made some changes to our GFA procedures. The procedures outline responsibilities and best practices in order to have as smooth an auction as possible. The auction is a large event for the club; when we discover areas that need some attention, we try to think about best practices to help with future auctions.

Cheryl Loesch momdeplume@comcast.net

Attention High School Seniors & 1st Year College Students! You may be ­elegible to apply for the NJWRC Memorial ­Scholarship. Applications are due on or before April 1 2018. For more information, scan this QR code.

Besides our regular board business, we have generated a list of items for discussion. If you, as a member of the NJWRC, have an item you’d like to see the board discuss, please approach your District Representative with your ideas. Cheryl Loesch

Vice President’s Report “Checking in on the National Jersey Wooly Rabbit Club Facebook page is another way to get any current news.”

~ Angel LeSage

I am so glad to be back as the Vice President. It is such an honor. I appreciate the board's support in electing me to this position. We have already started the planning for the Convention in Harrisburg. It seems to be coming up quickly. If you have any ideas and / or could help please let us know. According to the NJWRC Constitution & By-Laws, Article II, section 2, discusses the VP’s duties. The VP is “……to be the custodian of Robert’s Rules of Order…….” and “advise membership on the proper parliamentary procedure.” In other words, keep the club on track with following the Constitution & By-Laws (CBL) and Robert’s Rules of Order (RRO). The CBL provides a road map for the club on how to conduct business. Some parts of the CBL give us a lot of detail and other parts are vague. When it is vague we refer to RRO for the detail on how to proceed with an issue. One of the plans for the remainder of my term is to review the Constitution & By-Laws and consider revising a few areas. The Constitution Committee will do this review and make recommendations to the board, the board will review and approve, and

T h e

F l u f f

then membership will vote in August to approve the final changes. The CBL was revised and brought up-to-date with the language used in the document about 5 to 6 years ago. Since then there has been no suggestions for changes or revisions. I have a few areas to discuss with the Constitution Committee to consider for updating and I will let you know in future newsletter reports what we are discussing. In addition, if you are wondering what is going on at the NJWRC Board with the club. You need to read the Presidents Report and look at the Record of Vote. It is the President’s responsibility to communicate to the membership the board business and activities. Also, checking in on the National Jersey Wooly Rabbit Club Facebook page is another way to get any current news. If you need help or have suggestions, you can contact your District Director to share your thoughts. The NJWRC Facebook page is intended to give club updates not be another discussion group. We have 2 great discussion groups that discuss Jersey Woolies and they have some fantastic discussions on breeding, genetics, color and other great topics.

Secretary's Report "Our club seems to be maintaining a very healthy number of members, but there is always room for more.� ~Doug Brown

Doug Brown NJWRCsecretary@gmail.com (608) 487-3291

Hey MEMBERS! Use your phone to access the NJWRC PayPal link:

Our club is continuing to grow which is very nice to see. Over the last couple months there has been a fairly large amount of new members joining. It has been an issue getting New Member Packet where they are supposed to go though. We have come down to the point of tracking every one as to make surae that they arrive as planned. If for some reason you feel you haven’t gotten something that you feel you should, I ask that you please feel free to check in with me. I am only as good as the information that I have, I am not always sure whether they had arrived in the past or not. I am open to answer your emails if you ever have any questions in regards to your membership. With that being said, growth is definitely a good thing. Our club seems to be maintaining a

very healthy number of members, but there is always room for more. I know in our area of the country it seems that the youth members are starting to dwindle down some. Youth are the backbone of any good club as they are the future of our breed. So, we as members, need to do what we can to promote this wonderful breed to the youth out there, as well as anyone that may show an interest. I hope that all are having good luck in whatever endeavors they are pursuing at this time. Looking forward to spring here as I am sure most are. I wish you all the best of luck on the show tables and feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Sincerely yours, Doug Brown

Hello from District 1! I hope everyone had a successful winter season and I hope many litters grace your barn. Winter for us here at Wild Meadows is always a slow breeding season. However, when we are lucky enough to get does to take, we take extra care when it comes to our nest boxes. In this article I will discuss a little about what we use and why. We prefer to use wooden nest boxes in the winter. They always seem to be more “cozy” and insulated than standard metal boxes. In our area we found someone who makes boxes with a double floor. In between the 2 layers is a piece of Styrofoam insulation. These make the best boxes for winter usage. One drawback to wooden boxes is sanitation. Although a wooden box can indeed be sanitized, it takes a little more effort and time. When sanitizing nest boxes we pressure wash them well and then saturate with an ammonia mixture. The drying process can take a while in the winter though, so if you use this method, make sure you have at least a couple of days for it to dry thoroughly before you need to use it again. What materials do you use to fill the nest box? Here we typically use pine shavings and grass or timothy hay. This has been our trusted go to for many, many years. Sometimes we have bags of shredded paper available to us. We typically use this in the summer. One benefit is that the does don’t eat it like they will the hay. One disadvantage is that it tends to break down faster than

8

hay. Other materials you might use, care fresh bedding or straw, bedding pellets or aspen shavings. Also, for those does that don’t pluck a lot of wool, some people will use a product called “Litter Saver”. This is a plant fiber product that will imitate the fur of the doe, to help insulate her litter. It is our practice to keep the groomed or shaved wool of our woolies and use that as nest box filler if needed. Lastly, we keep a very close eye on the nest box daily. Making sure that there is always enough material to keep the litter warm. Making sure the doe is not messing (urinating/defecating) too much in the box. It doesn’t take much for a litter to get damp, and once they do, it is very easy for them to get chilled and die. If for some reason you need to change out the bedding in the box while the litter is still young, save as much of the mother’s hair/wool as possible, remove the babies and dry part of their nest. Clean out the box, add more material (shavings and hay in our case) add more wool if needed then add the litter back into the nest box. When we do this we always give our does their own handful of hay to keep them from devouring the clean hay in the box. Winter litters are a little more difficult and time intensive than others, but without them our springtime show string would be severely lacking. Wishing all of you a happy spring and a successful show season!

District 2 Report “It’s great to see the depth of skill of our breeders in our district.” ~Amber Henderson

Amber Henderson ambermom@gmail.com Regions Represented: Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Utah, Mexico

Our district is blessed with fairly good baby-making weather during winter months. Nestbox productivity has been made evident via adorable photos on Facebook. Sarah Maki’s and Susie Cerderlof’s Tris and Harlequins have garnered attention not only because of their unusual, unrecognized color patterns but because their type is excellent. It’s great to see the depth of skill of the breeders in our district. It is even greater that the skill and insight are shared so freely with other breeders. Our breeders see the benefit of teaching others what they can and we are seeing the benefits of this in an increase in newer exhibitors winning breed awards. Congratulations to Tiffani Morton and Michaeline McConnell on their Arizona State Convention BOB and BOSB wins in January. The wealth of wins was well shared at Southern California’s favorite Bakersfield show where NJWRC members Max Horan, Lori Robasciotti, and Michaeline McConnell earned BOB and BOSB honors. Congratulations again to Tiffani Morton and Max Horan for their wonderful wins in Phoenix in February! California State Convention in Turlock always attracts Jersey Wooly exhibitors from around the state. It is common to

travel over 6 hours north or south for this show that features an educational judges’ conference Friday evening, affordable hotels, a growing number of RVers who camp onsite, and excellent competition. This state convention show is prime time to connect with other Jersey Wooly exhibitors, go over young juniors, and coordinate plans to attend upcoming shows. If you missed it this year, plan to attend in 2021. You’ll be glad you did. There is no shortage of shows in California coming up. You’ll find them in Stockton, Victorville, Grass Valley, Handford, Rohnert Park (Youth only), San Louis Obisbo (Youth only), Costa Mesa, Lancaster, King City, Victorville, and Chino. No matter where you are in the immense Golden State, you have the opportunity to attend a show w/in a reasonable drive at least once between now and the beginning of summer. Tucson, Arizona has a show in May. And, of course, the show that is not just a show but an “event”….the West Coast Classic is April 10 - 12 in Reno, Nevada. If you’re looking for a fun Easter weekend with family, Reno is a great option for the many great activities to be found at the resorts and surrounding area. I hope to see you at the shows!

Wow what crazy weather we have been having here in Central Texas! It was 80 degrees one day and snowing the next!! My poor rabbits don’t know what to do! I know that we are getting ready for Spring, and Spring for me means baby bunnies and lots of shows! Remember when looking for shows in our area, the TRBA website and the ARBA website are the places to start. Also the TRBA Facebook group is a wealth of information. Some upcoming show dates for D4 are Crosby, TX on 2/22, Aurora, CO on 3/6, Houston Livestock show on 3/7 for youth

and 3/14 for Open. On 3/20-21 there is a show in Seguin, TX, and on 3/27 travel to Jonesboro, AR for the all breed show there. After that there are many more shows in our district throughout the spring with my favorite being the Texas State Show in Belton March 4-5. I’ve asked before and I’ll do it again now, please shoot me an email about your wins and send me photos so I can include them in my reports! I love to brag about people! Like Terri Snell who had a big win at the Fort Worth Stock Show. She won second runner up for Best In Show with a rabbit from the convention trio from William Miller. Congratulations Terri! I hope everyone has a great spring!!!!

Winter is about over for us in the South. We will have a couple more cold snaps and then it’s pretty much Summer. If we are lucky, we may get one week of nice Spring before the hot weather sets in. With that being said, I hope that those who have had a harsh winter have been able to keep their fur babies cozy and warm. Shows have been in full swing. I was able to travel for the weekend and make a couple of shows outside of Louisiana. I always enjoy visiting with my Wooly peeps. I have a great time talking and catching up. Overall, I say that Jersey Woolies are getting better with their structure and ability to win those Best In Shows and Reserve In Shows. In the not too distant past, it was not that

~ Tracey Freeman

way. I would like to congratulate my own District 6 member, Heike Cooley, with a Best In Show with her Self Sr. Doe at the Acadiana Area Club show in January. I was able to review this doe and all I can say is “wow, does she have a body”! National’s will be held in Syracuse, New York this year. I had hopes to attend, but I will be retiring in June and my job will need me to train my replacement; therefore, I will be missing this year’s Nationals. I hope that your winter breedings find you with plenty of possibilities for Nationals. I would like to thank Rose-Marie Bunnie Turley for taking over as managing editor of the newsletter. This is a time consuming and thankless position. I encourage all members to submit pertinent articles to Bunnie at: swimbunnie@gmail.com. It is very difficult to publish a fun-filled Fluff magazine without articles. As always, District 6 peeps, please submit those BIS and RIS wins to me at tntscountrycritters@hotmail.com. I also can be reached on Facebook, (Tracey Herring Freeman) if you have any questions or would like to talk Woolies. Tracey Freeman Judge 980

Around mid-February, when the the snow is several feet deep and we're reaching the end of our sub-zero nights, I start to get a bit of cabin fever (as do so many of us). In anticipation of spring I begin to plan my garden. This year I was considering growing a rabbit garden. I remember a Facebook thread from years ago about European practices of rabbit management that are not applied here. One person discussed how some Europeans can buy huge bags of dried parsley which are offered to their rabbits daily, stimulating appetite and aiding in digestion. I haven't been able to find livestock-grade bulk parsley locally and the grocery store stuff is cost-prohibitive. So I'm contemplating setting aside a large patch for growing my own. I already have quite a bit of wild raspberries (the leaves are wonderful for helping new moms) and I carefully cultivate dandelions and plantain, much to my husband's dismay. I don't mind the dandelions much; I think their yellow flowers are attractive. But my husband and I have a deal: I limit my dandelions to one section of the property and he gets green grass for most of our lawn. I'm still debating what other herbs and veggies I should attempt to grow for the rabbits. What do you guys cultivate for your herd?

I'm glad winter is nearing its end. I don't mind the cooler weather or the snow but I dislike the longer nights and worry about the rabbits when the night temps drop, sometimes as low as -25°F. I don't sleep well those nights and check on them soon after waking. The more vulnerable rabbits such as newborns or my elderly 9 year old Wooly girl - come inside and stay until early spring. The animals outside are given special consideration in the coldest weather. I stuff their cages with hay for insulation and some are given nest boxes to burrow in. If I feel one is starting to lose condition due to the cold I give that rabbit a chunk of sweet potato. It's never refused and a few days of this treat seems to help them bounce back. I haven't received a lot of show brags. Please don't hesitate to let me know about a special win you want included in my report! Daniel Kuyoth let me know he won two BOBs at the PVRCC show in November. I heard Tara Lovely was pleased with her placings at PaSRBA which included at least one BOSG. Don't be shy, people! Let me know how your bunnies are placing. May your nest boxes be full, your rabbits place well on the table, and I hope to see you all at a show soon! Mae Swan, District 7

District 8 Report “As we are talking to new people, please take time to encourage them to join the National Jersey Wooly Rabbit Club.” ~Julie Aversa Julie Aversa jtaversa@gmail.com

Hello Wooly peeps! So, did anyone take direction from last month’s Fluff? Did you make time? How about accepting the challenge to help start a new breeder? As we are seeing a change to smaller rabbitries, I think we may have to work harder to keep our hobby thriving. We have seen a decline in youth memberships and memberships in general. We are all ambassadors of our beloved breed. I welcome all ideas to increase youth membership or membership in general. As we are talking to new people, please take time to encourage them to join the National Jersey Wooly Rabbit Club. I recently saw a few people encouraging it on a Facebook post, it was awesome to see. Our rabbitry used to give a membership form, with a new breeder packet, to new breeders. I need to get back into that habit. We should encourage them to check out and join our Facebook page (National Jersey Wooly Rabbit Club), numerous Jersey Wooly group pages and visit our new website at NJWRClub. org. Now that we have covered new breeders and members, let’s talk about what you can do to help your club. If you have any questions, problems, or concerns, please contact your District Representative. What would you like to see happening or changing within your club or district? Participate and be active. You can sign up to work a 2 hour shift at the booth at convention. You can volunteer to run rabbits at convention.

14

Everyone showing at convention should run the amount of rabbits they entered, plus a few extra, to cover for the people writing and ram rodding the show. You can donate an item for the booth raffle table. There are many other opportunities to help out, too. If we all give a little bit of our time, it can be a fun time for all. I was recently at a show and was talking to a member about this, and brought up the 2 hour booth slots and the response was they don’t have time. We need to change this way of thinking. It is not fair to expect a few people to run everything. Let’s turn those no’s into yeses!!!!! If there are any specialty clubs that want to put in a bid to hold nationals please let me know. Maybe if you don’t think you can handle it all, we could have two clubs work together to put one on. I hope many of you can make the journey to Syracuse NY this year. I know that the Northeast Jersey Wooly Club is going to put on a great show. I would like to end with a quote, author unknown, "Success comes only to those who believe In themselves and are prepared to win." Good Luck! See you on the tables, and may your nest boxes be full, Julie Aversa District 8 Representative

District 9 Report “It was awesome to watch two different Youth Wooly exhibitors win the coveted BIS award.” ~ Bill Miller

Greetings all! We have enjoyed a strange Winter. The weather has been playing tricks and rabbits' coats are all over the place. The 2020 shows are off and running.

In January, we held our Northeast Specialty with the New Jersey State club. It was well attended. It was awesome to watch two different Youth Wooly exhibitors win the coveted BIS award. Cody Landis and Rachael Walkup made us proud! Rachael won with her handsome Chestnut buck from Fran Haskins. Cody took the win with his beautiful Broken Buck. Our district has some very clever Youth breeders. I really enjoy looking at their rabbits and seeing all their hard work pay off in droves. The future is in our Youth. I have included some of the pictures of their awesome wins! The huge PaSRBA shows were well attended. It was fun to visit with people from out of our area. Michelle Landis worked hard to run our specialty shows each day. We really appreciate all of her hard work. She really puts a lot of effort into our local club. PaSRBA weekend was fun. Some real quality animals were on the table. Two Woolies( a Youth and an Open) won their

Groups and went on to compete for BIS. At a show like PaSRBA, that says a lot about the quality of rabbits in our breed. I was really excited to spend time with friends and chat about pedigrees and all that fun stuff. With the National weekend quickly approaching, it is time to start really focusing on your possible entry and taking care of those coats. Some hard work now will help you reap the rewards later. This weather surely hasn't helped. Hopefully, the bunnies will all be in full bloom for our big show in April. If you have any questions about the National event, contact Steven Buell. He is the "go to guy" for this event. Today, I spent quite a bit of time in the barn. I brought out the SOP and sorted through my rabbits. It is always well worth the time to revisit the SOP. While we all may interpret it a bit differently, the SOP has the final say. It tells us what we should be trying to create. In evaluating my overall herd, I was able to make some decisions about future goals and breedings. If you notice an area of weakness in your overall herd, make plans to find an animal or two at Nationals to help you improve that trait. That's the best part about the big shows. You get to meet up with so many people with different stock. Take advantage of it and improve your herd. I sent many really good animals out to different areas of the country. It is exciting to help others. Remember, in return for your sharing of your stock, you will make valuable connections to obtain stock in the future. If we all help each other, the breed improves and we all succeed. Here's to wishing everyone a wonderful 2020. I'm hoping to see everyone at the National show. I have a feeling the turnout will be incredible. All the best, Bill

Sweepstakes/Sanctions Report “It’s critical that you check the included shows listing for point batches.” ~ Nicole Schmitt

Nicole Schmitt njwrcsweeps@gmail.com To submit an online S ­ weepstakes Sanction Form go to: http://www.njwrc.org/forms/ SancReqForm.pdf

or Mail Sweepstakes Sanction Requests to:

Nicole Schmitt – NJWRC Sweeps, 505 E Henry Clay St. #104, Whitefish Bay, WI 53217

To visit the NJWRC Sweepstakes site go to: http://www.njwrcsweeps.com/ Or use your smartphone and scan to visit:

HEY, NJWRC MEMBERS! Yes, YOU!

the 1st time!)

CRITICAL INFORMATION: We are continuing to have members joining / renewing using PayPal without notification emails being sent to Doug Brown, NJWRC Secretary. It is IMPERATIVE that you do this! We’re happy to fix membership errors, but would be much, much happier if the correct process is followed so as not to generate errors at all.

Hm. Sanctions. Reports. Points. Ever wonder what my whole process is, from start to finish? Well, even if you never wondered, I’m going to tell you anyway!

I’m happy to let you all know that I’m functionally caught up on reports! Yay! I write “functionally” because it’s not entirely possible to ever be truly 100% current on all of it all the time – but things are looking way, way, WAAAAAY better now. You can anticipate points being updated on the sweepstakes website again about every 6 weeks. Please keep in mind that 6 weeks isn’t part of the requirements for the job, though – it’s absolutely what I HOPE to give you, though! While we’re talking website point updates – it’s critical that you check the included shows listing for the points batches. Critical. Really. If you contact me about points, it’s most likely my first question will be: “Did you check the included shows listing?” I think this is where the “Hm” article information below may also be helpful in understanding the timeline of show date to completed points. I also think it’s a great time for some review about how reports are handled and the timeframe they actually take. So the below article is a 3-peat (this is at least the 3rd time I’ve run this one). Sorry NJWRC Members! This article is a re-run (as if it wasn’t WILDLY interesting

First things first – Get the envelope out of the mailbox & open the envelope! Following me so far?! Most of my Rabbit Mail is made up of sanction requests, as most Host Club’s email reports. SANCTION HANDLING: It’s my goal to issue sanctions within 24 hours of receipt. Many times, though, mail received on a Friday isn’t done until Monday. But, generally speaking, they get done the next day. Upon opening the envelope, sanction requests go in one pile, reports in another (see Report Handling below!) – sorted by breed. Sanction requests are 1st reviewed for duplication in my Excel Sanctions Logs (being VERY careful that I’m the correct breed’s log!). Once I’ve determined this is a new request, the postmark date, received date & processed date are noted. The payment method (check #, money order #, or the occasional cash) & amount are also noted. I apply the appropriate endorsement stamp to each check (being VERY careful that I’m using the right breed’s bank stamp!) and I write in my sanction number on the paper request, which I base on the ARBA #’s. Smart, right?! Then, each request is added to the Sanctions Log for that breed. The info included in the log is the date received & processed, and how (email or mail). The club name, secretary info, show location & date, the breed’s season, ARBA #’s and my assigned numbers. Essentially, the log

S p r i n g

2 0 2 0


contains all pertinent info on the show, so in case the paper copy would get lost or something, I’d still have 100% of the needed information. I’ve got the logs set up to automatically determine the date the report is due as well, which is included in the sanction I send to the club. It also notes my billing month & bank deposit date. Bank runs are made 3 times per month, pretty much without fail. Once the shows are added to the logs, I generate the sanction that will be sent to the Host Club. Then email the sanction/s to the SS (being VERY careful to be sure I’m in the correct breed’s email!). Sanctions being sent by regular mail are printed & mailed. Then the show info is immediately added to the Sanctioned Shows listing that is updated on each breed’s sweepstakes website pretty much once per day. After the sanction is issued, the paperwork goes into a “sort in after bank deposit” slot in the Open Sanctions envelope, keeping them in the same order as they appear on the log. This is a very handy little step in case there is something weird in my bank deposit – it’s very easy then to pull out all of the requests that should be included in the current deposit. Once the payment has been deposited, the paperwork is then sorted in to the monthly slots, sorted 1st by show date, then show location (State/City), and lastly by club name. REPORT HANDLING: Then, later (sometimes MUCH later!), the report shows up! Emailed reports are immediately printed & a return email is sent confirming receipt (even if they don’t ask me to confirm!). Before sending the Thanks! email, though, I always briefly review what I’ve received for any glaring problems – missing pages, wrong breed (yeah, it happens!), etc. It’s embarrassing (and much more difficult to get an answer!) if I immediately reply confirming receipt, and 2 days later I realize I’m missing pages or something. So I always try to take a quick look at it to be sure there isn’t anything glaringly wrong with it. The report is then logged on the Sanctioned Shows listing with the date I received it, how I received it, and the current status of the processing (RTW, RTCML, RTE & HOLD – keep reading if you’re not too bored yet to find out what all these exciting abbreviations mean!). The date received and the manner in which it was received is recorded on the paper as well. The original sanction request paperwork is pulled from the open sanctions envelope & matched to the report/s. RTW (ready to work): The RTW phase is the most “flexible” for when / where I can work on it. It is during the RTW phase that Bonus Points, Quality Points & Ear #’s recorded. I don’t need a computer to do this, and often do it in the middle of the night when I can’t sleep! I try to do this part as soon after receiving the report as possible, since this is the point at

T h e

F l u f f

which I would find any errors in the report that weren’t glaring enough to be caught in the 1st review. ☺ Luckily, the VAST majority of reports are received complete & perfectly fine! Following RTW is RTCML (ready to check membership listing): Ready to check out that big ole membership list (again, being VERY careful that I’m in the right breed! Yeah, that’s a continuing theme throughout!). The membership list date is recorded on the paperwork as well. Reports are checked using the 1st membership list received in the month following the show – December shows / January listing. This ensures that anyone that joined the club during the month of the show is sure to receive their points. RTE (ready to enter): Yahoo! After all that pre-work, I’m finally ready to roll! The reports are entered – and when complete, the fill color on the Sanctioned Shows Listing is changed from yellow to light gray. The bulletin deadline is noted on both the Sanctioned Shows Listing, as well as on the paperwork. Once entry is completely done, the paperwork is ready to scan. All reports (and correspondence regarding the report, as well as the original sanction request), are scanned as PDF files individually, and are then uploaded to my Google Cloud. Once the upload is complete, all paperwork is recycled. If something comes up with a report, I can download it again from my Cloud, print it, note any issues, and then it is rescanned & uploaded again with the extra notes. Once the scanning is done, it’s noted on the sanctioned shows listing with a “G” in the scanned column (in case you ever wondered what that was, which you probably didn’t because it’s really not that interesting!). HOLD (holding for next new membership listing). We don’t see the HOLD one very often, as most shows are not that expedient with getting reports in! These reports stay in the RTCML envelope until early the following month when I’ve received the updated membership listing from our valued Club Secretaries. Then the membership is checked & the report can be entered. Now, lest I take up even more space in this already jampacked Fluff, I will end my journey’s tale here! Till next time! -Nicole

Youth Report “It is important to keep an eye on polls placed on the National Jersey Wooly Youth Group on Facebook for things you would like to do and see at Nationals.� ~ Lindsay Aversa

Lindsay Aversa

allstarwoolies@gmail.com

Youth Committee Chair for all Youth Jersey Wooly Members

Nationals will be April 18, 2020 this year in Syracuse, New York and entries will be due April 8, 2020. Preparation should begin sooner rather than later. Juniors should be picked and the grooming process should be starting to make sure they are not matting due to the baby coat. Also make sure to blow your seniors out to make sure that the webbing at the base of the hair shaft is being

separated so they can molt evenly. Preparing the coat for Nationals is essential. It is important to keep an eye on polls placed on the National Jersey Youth Group on Facebook for things you would like to do and see at Nationals. Lindsay Aversa

ARBA Convention 2018 • Open Best of Breed

24

RENO, NEVADA: JERSEY WOOLY

OPEN BEST OF BREED

AMBER HENDERSON & WONDER'S TOA I was pleasantly surprised and also a little worried when Wonder’s Toa was selected as 1st Broken Senior doe at Convention. It was a big class of beautiful does and I kind of thought that one of my other Broken Senior doe entries might be chosen because their wool caps were fully in whereas Toa’s still needed about three more weeks of growth. But, I understood that her coat was more even and she was definitely in better flesh condition than my

other two does that placed immediately before her. I really hoped that Toa might be able to pull off a Group win but figured she probably would not go any further than that. What are the chances she’d pull off earning one of the breed wins two years in a row? When she was chosen as Best of Group, an involuntary smile ran across my face, which I quickly tried to hide by


looking away and ducking behind a friend. I didn’t want the mini celebration happening inside me to be seen by any judge. That wouldn’t be good etiquette. But silent “Wow!”, that Group win was really something. Especially because only three weeks before I noticed my herd was having trouble getting into condition. Their wool was growing but they were losing muscle. It was less than one week before Convention that I realized the cause was their feed and by then it was far too late to fix the problem. Only two of my animals managed to hold their muscle tone. They were solid. One stayed home; nearly naked as a Jaybird. The other was Toa. Still, that wool cap...with so many gorgeous rabbits from expert breeders to go up against for Best of Breed, in your mind, details like that take center stage and seem to have a spotlight shining on them. I was a little surprised when the judges began to announce their Best Opposite and Best of Breed picks after only a short discussion. I was so happy T h e

F l u f f

for Angel LeSage for her Best Opposite win with The One. I have loved that buck since I first saw him less than a year before Convention. Then the judge was calling, “..the Broken doe”. What?! Okay, I admit I teared up about it. Did I rush around hugging people? I’m kind of awkward on a good day so I’m afraid grace may have gone out the window for a moment. I was so proud of my girl, Toa! Last year, I was over the moon when she won BOSB at ARBA Convention in West Springfield, MA. This year, she proved herself again many times over. Both her young daughters were there and placed 2nd in their Junior classes. She got back into shape after raising them, held her tone despite the feed problems, and managed to win Best of Breed at the biggest show in the country. Not too shabby. It was a great honor to have her chosen by our judges Zach Sauer and Cliff Dick. Thank you, both. 25

ARBA Convention 2018 • Open Best Opposite

26

RENO, NEVADA: JERSEY WOOLY

OPEN BEST OPPOSITE OF BREED

ANGEL LESAGE & LESAGE'S THE ONE What a great experience and such an honor to have won Best Opposite of Breed at 2019 ARBA Convention in Reno with my buck LeSage’s The One. That day, I had been working the youth table and had not had time to keep track on how he was doing in the show. Youth finished before Open and someone told me that he had won his group. Woohoo -- what great news, I never dreamed he would win BOS. What a thrill this was for me. “The One” is a 2-year-old blue buck. I thought he was really nice from the start. I would walk through the barn looking at all my woolies and kept saying to myself “I think he might be the one to take it all the way.” Hence his name “The One”. To me he seemed to have all the makings of a winner. It took him over a year to get a stronger masculine look. He is very easy going and never gets uptight. After winning BOS, I was taking pictures of other winning rabbits and he was sitting on the edge of the judging table just patiently waiting for me to get to him. He reminds me, so much, of a Smoked Pearl Buck I had 10 years ago, LeSage’s Slow Bloomer, who won BOS at Nationals in Kentucky. They are not related but seem very similar. Slow Bloomer flew across the country 5 times to shows. “The One” has not yet been on a plane trip. His sire, out of Amber Henderson’s herd, is Wonder’s Spot On. He is a broken black buck who won 1st place in his class at the San Diego ARBA convention. I have not shown him much, but when I did, he did well on the table. The Dam is LeSage’s Uptown Girl. She is a broken blue doe. I have never shown her. I just keep her home to make and raise babies. These two, I have been pairing for breeding for the last 2 years. I have other nice rabbits out of them. One other in particular, LeSage’s Pixl, is “The One’s” litter mate, who is a nice Silver Marten blue doe. She has always been feisty (the opposite of The One), however, and this last year, she developed an attitude on the table so I have quit showing her for the time being. I started showing rabbits with my 9-year-old daughter in 19931994 and have been exhibiting Jersey Woolies ever since. At the time, I had giant angoras and was looking for a smaller breed for my daughter to show. We bought our first Wooly in the neighboring, rural county. I did not know many rabbit people and I kept


asking around and heard about a breeder who was raising this “new breed” of cute, small, easy going, wooled rabbits. I, somehow, made my way to Darlene Sweetland’s home where the show was taking place and even Chris Zemny was there judging. It was at Darlene’s, I saw my first Jersey Wooly and of course I bought one. I fell in love with them and have never been into any other breeds. When my daughter left for college, I really started actively exhibiting and going to Nationals and ARBA Convention. I really enjoyed the national shows and met a lot of great people from all over the country. There was nowhere else

you could talk “rabbit” and no one would complain. Also, around the same time the internet was really taking off and it became a great way to talk about rabbits. Now with FB, it has been unbelievable the discussions we can have about Jersey Woolies. So, I want to thank all of my friends in the NJWRC for making this such a great hobby!

NJWRC INFORMATION • Grooming the White Jersey Wooly

33

Few things are as lovely as a perfectly groomed white Jersey Wooly with the coat draping perfectly over the well-rounded body and the guard hairs sparkling in the light. This subject applies to the Ruby Eyed White; Blue Eyed White; Pointed White, and lightly marked Brokens. The most important thing to keep your whites white is to keep the cage clean. No rust anywhere. Rusty cages tear and break coats, as well as staining the wool and footpads. Brand new cages will rub off on the wool, leaving a dingy grey coloration on the wool as well. I prefer to leave new cages out in the weather for a couple of weeks, including in the rain; this removes the grey from the wire instead of it coming off on the rabbit.

once a week. You can buy a high velocity blower (HV) or check your local automotive supply houses; the HV is often sold as a motorcycle dryer. You can also get a small shop vac and reverse the hose so it is on the outflow valve rather than the intake valve; get one with a 2-inch hose rather than a 3 or 4 inch hose. Get a concentrator nozzle; [cone shape] and put on the end. Until your rabbit is used to being blown out, place a hand over the head, ears and eyes to help him/her remain calm; starting at the hind end start blowing into the coat at the bottom and methodically blow the coat bottom to top, back to front; tip the rabbit up and do the belly and chest and around the neck as well; you should go over the entire rabbit; use the same pattern each time. The first few times you blow the rabbit you will be shocked at the amount of dander, dust and dirt that comes out of the coat; it will look like a fog coming off the coat. It will also coat the wall behind the table, the table and if you wear eyeglasses, it will coat the lenses, as well. It is better to not be wearing contact lenses but to protect the eyes with goggles instead. Then go back with your gentle slicker and comb and straighten out the coat. Blowing it will open up any webbing before it turns to matting; and you can remove it with the brush and comb.

Trim Nails Make sure that your Jersey Wooly’s nails are properly trimmed.

If you have solid dividers and urine guards you may have problems with the rabbit that like to back into the corners to urinate; and then the urine stains the wool around the tail, hips and lower hind legs. Another frequent problem in growing juniors is Red Urine (a natural metabolite circumstance at certain stages of growth). Red Urine causes the urine to be color from orange through rust even to a bright red. It can appear to be blood stained but is not. The Red urine has a strong tendency to stain the coat; so, it is important to keep the cage extra clean at this time. You can use a toilet brush dipped in soapy water (Dawn and water is excellent) and scrub corners with it.

Getting started – Blow the Coat

To groom the rabbit, I strongly suggest blowing the coat T h e

this could cause bleaching of the nose, tail and feet. On them use only the white vinegar, cornstarch and or no rinse shampoo.

Show Day Always check over your rabbit first thing in the morning at the show; blow, brush and comb as above; but stain removal should have taken place at home. Check their bottoms to make sure that the night feces have not gotten caked on their bums. Also, check the lower shoulder wool on both sides. I have owned a number of top winning does that somehow would get feces along the table line on their shoulders; due to the lack of space in the carrier to allow them to freely clean themselves at night. If feces are found on the bottom, rise off with water and no rinse shampoo, then wipe dry with a paper towel. A small amount of corn starch can be used as long as you have a blower to remove an excess.

Tackling stains If the coat has developed discoloration or staining it can be cleaned using several methods; for mild discoloration using white vinegar followed by cornstarch; let dry and brush out. If the discoloration is stronger, use Hydrogen Peroxide and cornstarch. In a worst case scenario, a solution of equal parts Hydrogen Peroxide and Milk of Magnesia can be mixed with enough cornstarch to make a paste; rubbed into the stains, and then brushed out when dry. Repeat if necessary.

For Pointed Whites, do not use any of the peroxide formulas;

Few things are as lovely as a perfectly groomed white Jersey Wooly with the coat draping perfectly over the well-rounded body and the guard hairs sparkling in the light. **Deidre has made countless contributions to the Jersey Wooly breed; won breed at national shows; served many years on NJWRC board as District Director for 2 different districts and vice president 1 term; was inducted into the NJWRC Hall of Fame in 2015

IN MEMORY: REMEMBERING A WOOLY LEGEND

DONNA CORSON On a cold winter day in January, 1992 I attended my first rabbit show with a REW Jersey Wooly I had purchased at a fair the previous September. I was young, very clueless about showing - or rabbits in general - and lost in the crowd of adults crammed into a small building in Bridgeton, Maine. I can't remember how I found Donna, whether I was directed to her or stumbled across her rabbits on my own and struck up a conversation, but my most vivid memories of that show revolve around her. She immediately took me under her wing and gave me a basic rundown of showing and rabbit care. She also let me use her Sable Marten buck so I could progress my hobby by having a litter. Since that beginning we spent time together at every show we both attended. I considered Donna to be one of my mentors in the hobby, affectionately calling her my "Bunny Mom." My story is not unique. Donna was a committed, giving, encouraging, and fiercely loyal woman. These traits showed in her commitment to the rabbit community. After her death I heard from numerous people about how Donna started them out. They would recount the beautiful rabbits she gave them or the wisdom she imparted. I heard from many about how she had helped and supported them and the rabbit community at large. Donna was originally given Holland Lops and Mini Lops by her uncle. She showed well with these breeds and won BIS. But wool breeds were her favorites and she was involved in Jersey Woolies and American Fuzzy Lops as soon as they were recognized in 1988. She joined Eastern Maine Rabbit Breeders Association in 1989 and later also became involved in Cumberland County RBA. She held offices in these clubs, was treasurer of Maine State RBA for a time, and served the NJWRC as D7 director. At the height of her showing, she attended 23 shows a year throughout northern New England and eastern Canada. She did very well in sweepstakes and consistently won BOBs. Perhaps more importantly, she did her part in introducing the public to our rabbit hobby, working in various fair displays. Even after her health forced her to part with her herd she still came to EMRBA's rabbit display at Bangor State Fair and assisted the entire week. T h e

F l u f f

Possibly more than rabbits, Donna adored her horses. From 1965 to the late 90's she was involved in western riding and rode her horses every day. She, and later her daughter, were both active in the horse community and Donna was as successful in this hobby as she was with rabbits. Despite Donna's severe physical disadvantages, she always accrued high points and Grand Championships. 11 years ago she bought a 125 Yamaha ATV and, as a member of the Airline ATV club, became as involved and active in that venture as anything else she put her attention towards. What makes Donna's life so inspiring isn't simply the people she helped with her knowledge and encouragement, the organizations she supported with her hard efforts, or her eagerness to educate the public at large about rabbits; it's because it was never supposed to happen. Donna was born with severe Spina Bifida. She was the 1st child of 15 and wasn't expected to live to a year of age. When she proved the doctors wrong they claimed she'd succumb by age 2. Then they modified that estimate to 7 years old. Donna stubbornly lived 7 more decades. This was in an era when disabled children were not afforded the same consideration as other children. Despite educational neglect she taught herself to read and manage her finances, something she was always proud of. She could ambulate only with significant help from crutches, and often needed her wheelchair, yet she was a superb horseback and ATV rider. She never let her disadvantages define her or hold her back. When I think of Donna, I am reminded of her tenacity, her loyalty, her compassion. When she committed to something she gave it 100%, something we often saw with her involvement in the clubs. When her friends faced adversity she had their backs. When someone needed help or support she could be counted on. Donna made the world a better place and we are all a little poorer for her passing. S p r i n g
