looking everyone over: “Pick out a rabbit that you are proud of. It should be one that you would happily stand up next to in front of all of the other breeders and say that this Jersey Wooly best represents your rabbitry. It should always be one that you wouldn’t normally sell.” Every year we try to adhere to that advice. Then, there was Monday afternoon’s Youth Best in Show. I still feel almost speechless when someone asks me what it was like. Most of you know me well enough to be extremely surprised by that. Me? Speechless? LOL! If you watched live or the video afterward, you may remember Cody’s silly face to me

Best In Show Jersey Wooly Cody Landis Wow! Just Wow! I don’t know what else to say . . .. Our convention experience in Reno, Nevada was a dream come true. How do you put a Best in Show at an ARBA Convention into words? The best way to describe it is humbling and exciting all wrapped into one. It still doesn’t feel real! I keep waiting to wake up and realize that it was just an amazing and wonderful dream! In the Youth Jersey Wooly show on Sunday, Ashley and Cody were so incredibly surprised, blessed and excited to win 4 Youth BOGs in Broken, Self, Shaded and Tan with homegrown rabbits. Then to make it even more dreamlike, they won Youth Best of Breed with AFB’s Xander and Best Opposite of Breed with AFB’s Copa Cabana. Huge congratulations to all of the youth for bringing so many absolutely gorgeous woolies to Reno. No one can say that the JW Youth don’t have some seriously beautiful rabbits. Monday morning’s Golden Fleece Auction was another dream come true when AFB’s Copa Cabana sold for $2000. Thank you for all of the kind words and for loving her as much as we do. I always get very nervous when picking out a rabbit for the GF Auction because it is such a huge honor to be asked to donate to this fundraiser. The 1st time that we donated in 2013, I asked Brian Caudill “How do you pick out a rabbit for something like this?” His answer always runs through my head as I go through the rabbit shed


YOUTH BEST OF BREED WENT ALL THE WAY! 2019 CONVENTION BEST IN SHOW YOUTH

when he got up on stage. Well, there is a short story behind it! That morning when we got up, I told the kids not to get too incredibly excited for BIS. I never dreamed that Xander had a chance. There are always so many stunning rabbits there. I mean, who doesn’t dream about winning, but to actually think that we could win was crazy talk in my mind. We were lucky enough one other time to have one of our Woolies pulled out twice in the ARBA Youth BIS Group Judging, but no win that time. Parents were not allowed to wait backstage with the kids before BIS, so I found a seat in the stands and got ready to cheer, take tons of pictures and a few videos for my husband to watch later. Ashley and her friend Skye stayed in the rabbit area and fed/ watered our rabbits during Group judging. Xander was the last rabbit judged in his Group and it felt like FOREVER till it was his turn. Misty did such an amazing job posing him and really took her time looking him over. Only after she went over him a 2nd


time and he behaved wonderfully, did I even let myself begin to believe that he actually might have a chance. When Misty was handed the mic and she said that the Group 3 winner was the Jersey Wooly, I almost fainted. Then I screamed, cried my heart out and texted Ashley to let her know. She was as incredibly shocked as I was! Cody said that he couldn’t believe that he heard it correctly. We had just won Group 3 at an ARBA Convention! When it came time for Josh to start the final BIS judging, I was a complete mess of nerves and tears. Ashley was so nervous that she couldn’t watch, so she and Skye stayed with our Woolies in the showroom. Cody said that he was so excited that he couldn’t wait for it to start. Thank goodness for McKenzie Telatovich who messaged the “play by play” since I was completely useless as I continued to cry and take pics and videos. When Josh pulled out Xander and he posed perfectly, I actually thought that we might have a chance. Believe me, I crossed every finger, every toe and said a LOT of prayers during those long agonizing minutes. The Dutch, Satin and Netherland Dwarf were incredibly gorgeous! When Josh pulled the Satin out for the 3rd time, I thought that it had won. Imagine my shock and surprise when he announced that the Jersey Wooly was the BIS winner! Cody was so shocked that he didn’t know what to do so he just stayed sitting. They had to call him up on stage before it actually sunk in and he got up out of his seat. It was a whirlwind of pictures, interviews and tons of hugs and tears especially when Ashley found us at the ARBA booth. We were so happy to have Sandra Wight as the kids’ photographer for their winning pictures. What is better than a fellow Jersey Wooly breeder taking the official pictures of the 1st Jersey Wooly to ever win an ARBA Best In Show.

Ashley

2014 Fort Worth ARBA Convention, BOSB at the 2016 JW Nationals in Lancaster PA and Youth BOG Shaded at the 2017 JW Nationals in Oakdale WI. Xander’s dam is AFB’s Layla (black doe) who was Youth BOSG Self at the 2017 Indianapolis ARBA Convention. Layla’s granddam was AFB’s A Ray of Sunshine who was Cody’s 1st jersey wooly. Many of you may remember Cody as a little boy walking around convention all day carrying a broken chestnut jersey wooly that he called Sunshine. That was his beloved 1st JW who just passed away about a year ago.

AFB’s Xander is a dream come true kind of rabbit. He is extra special because he is a mix of Ashley and Cody’s lines. His sire is from Ashley’s shaded lines and his dam is from Cody’s agouti lines, which includes an extra special broken buck (Fuzzyville’s Broken Tear) from our dear friends Timmy and Danielle Bauer. Xander’s sire is BIS/RIS AFB’s Tank (broken blue buck) who goes back to AFB’s Zeke and AFB’s Reno. BIS/RIS AFB’s Zeke was Youth BOG Broken at the 2013 Harrisburg ARBA Convention and Youth BOG Broken & our Golden Fleece Auction rabbit at the 2014 Fort Worth ARBA Convention. AFB’s Reno was Youth BOB at the

Xander was a VERY slow maturing buck that I had on the cull list at least twice because he was so ugly for so long. His head just wouldn’t “pop”. Thank goodness Ashley makes all cull/


keep/sell decisions at our house and she saw something in him in the pics that we had taken before he went into his uglies. She just had this feeling about him and she is normally right when she says that. We clipped him down, stuck him in a bottom hole, and kind of “forgot” about him for 1 ½-2 months. I pulled him out to groom him when his coat was long enough and we almost didn’t recognize him. His head had finally popped and his

so he was kind of a last-minute addition to our show list for Reno. I wasn’t sure if his coat would finish in time. We are so glad that we kept him on the Reno list! We bred him for the 1st time in September, and the kits were born on Sunday (10/20) – the same day that he won Youth BOB in Reno. We are very excited for this litter of two siamese sables and 1 smoke pearl. I guess that we will need to come up with Reno-themed names for them. We are expecting a few more Xander litters in the next 3 weeks. I think that the best part of winning was getting to celebrate with all of our friends both at the show and at home. Thank you everyone for all of the sweet and kind messages, hugs, texts, phone calls and FB posts! You all made it even more special to us. We are hoping that our win helps put Jersey Woolies on both

breeders’ and judges’ minds and that JW numbers will continue to increase throughout the next year and years to come.

body had finally filled out. With his new coat coming in, he was looking promising. So, we took him to the ARBA Convention in Massachusetts where he won Youth BOSB. I didn’t think that he could look any better until this year. He was out of coat in August,

The kids told me that their goal for this next year is to try to help increase the number of Jersey Wooly breeders in both Open and Youth through sharing their love of the breed with others, selling quality stock to other breeders and encouraging new people to give jersey woolies a chance. They have started breeding very heavily for JW Nationals in Syracuse, NY, and for the ARBA Convention in Harrisburg, PA. We are very excited to help our local club, North East Jersey Wooly Breeders, at JW Nationals in Syracuse, NY in April. We are lucky to have many talented members in our club and look forward to hosting a wonderful show for all of you. Our club is very excited about hosting Nationals for the 1st time and we hope to see many of you there in April and again at the ARBA Convention in October.

President’s Report “Congratulations are due to Rose-Marie “Bunnie” Turley for passing the 2nd try of her first presentation with the Orange variety!" ~ Cheryl Loesch I want to start my first report as President by congratulating all of our Convention winners. Jersey Wooly breeders can be proud that we had many beautiful animals on display this year. Open BOB winner, Amber Henderson represented us with a lovely broken doe, and BOS winner Angel LeSage showed a beautiful blue buck. Huge congratulations to Cody Landis! Cody won Youth BOB and BOG with his gorgeous black buck, who went on to win BIS in a very exciting field of beautiful animals. It was wonderful to watch all of the judges who selected this outstanding buck go over him carefully, showing him to his best advantage. Thank you to all of our judges for their work with the woolies this convention: Cliff Dick, Zach Sauer, Ramie Grissom, and all of the Best in Show judges. Cody, congratulations to you for raising such beautiful woolies, and garnering this well-deserved win! We had a very eventful convention this year, and congratulations are also due to Rose-Marie “Bunnie” Turley for passing the 2nd try of her first presentation with the Orange variety! Bunnie has been working hard on improving her animals for presentation, and it showed. Congratulations, Bunnie! We’re all looking forward to seeing even more improvements on your project presentation next year. Many thanks to those who answered my call to be on the club’s COD review committee: Chase Austin, Steven Buell, Meadow Gustafson, Amber Henderson, Angel LeSage, and Brenda Reilly. You all made the

T h e

F l u f f

time to prepare for this review, and then spent the necessary time to carefully review all the animals. I was pleasantly surprised to see how many club members were on hand to watch the proceedings, both during the club’s review and the ARBA Standards Committee’s review. We had another successful Golden Fleece Auction this year, selling 14 Jersey Woolies, and bringing in a total of 8,300.00. Thank you so much to all of our donors for the beautiful animals you give to make this possible. Those that donate give us top animals, and I know how much thought and care goes into selecting a nice representative from your breeding program. Thank you also to those who bid on and buy from the GFA. Most of all, thank you to Amber Henderson, our solicitor for this year’s GFA. She spent a lot of time talking to our breeders to secure the best possible animals available for our auction. Her professional and kind approach, and her attention to every detail made it possible for a highly successful auction. Thank you to everyone who helped us to make this convention run smoothly! We had a wonderful design for our booth, thanks to Amber Henderson, Elaine Spotswood and Angel LeSage for the hours they put in on that task! Our raffle was very nice, with a range of very nice raffle items donated. Thank you to Julie Aversa for taking point on securing donations, and for everyone who helped to set up the table! Thank you to all of our booth staff, with a special thank you to continued on page 10

President’s Report Continued from Page 9 Tracey and Tyrone Freeman, and Kathy Moerbe, who put in a lot of extra hours to keep our booth open! I heard lots of praise for our awards this year, both for Convention wins and for Sweepstakes. Thank you to DeAnn Boulier for taking charge of the Convention awards, and to Haley Jewell for Sweeps awards. Thank yous are also due to our table help: writers, ramrods, runners—thank you so much runners! There are so many people to thank for their help at convention; I know I have not thanked you all here, but know that all of us really appreciate every bit of help. It takes a lot of hands to do everything required at the breed level. As we start the new club year, I would like to thank our outgoing District Representatives, Daniel Kuyoth, Gayle Beirau and Katrina Przybylowski, for their service to the club. District reps are a key part of our board, serving to represent membership in their districts in every discussion or decision that comes before the board. We thank you for giving of yourselves to help run the club! Your perspectives and contributions have been most appreciated. And, welcome to our new District reps, Mae Swan, Brenda Kneir and Bill Miller. Thank you all for being willing to serve! The first task of our new board was to appoint a vice president to serve out the final year of my term, as that post was vacated. It’s my pleasure to thank Angel LeSage for her years in leading our club as President, and to welcome her back as the vice president for the next year. I feel confident that our board will serve the club well! We have been generating a list of items for discussion. Some of those items are standard business for the club, and others are things we’d like to think or plan for future. This is a list that any member can contribute to—if there’s something you’d like us to discuss, we invite you to contact your district rep, or any board member. We do have a new website! Jess Pearson, who is the FLUFF editor, is also our webmaster. If you haven’t seen the new page yet, please go have a look at www. njwrclub.org. We do have more content to add, but I think you’ll like what you see so far! We also have an official club Facebook page, which we are using for announcements and information. You can search for and “like” the page at National Jersey Wooly Rabbit Club. Questions can be messaged to the page, and will be answered or forwarded promptly. We have two admins on the page at present, Julie Aversa and Haley

Jewell. Memberships and Membership renewals can be made online on our website. Just click the “Online Store” tab at the top of the page, and then the “membership” button. Payments are made via PayPal. Please remember that you will still have to provide our secretary with the membership form (also available on our website), as he needs this information to ensure that you get timely reminders, and the quarterly emailing of the FLUFF link. One upcoming deadline I’d like to highlight is that Scholarship applications are due April 1st. The club gives out two $1000 scholarships. Please be sure to let your high school seniors know that they can apply. The application is in this issue of the FLUFF, and is available under the “forms” tab on our website. Reminder: By our sweepstakes rules, no shows can be sanctioned after the fact. Check the sanctioned shows list to see whether shows you are attending are sanctioned. Rabbit clubs re-use flyers from one year to the next and may not be accurate. The sanctioned shows list is kept current and is continuously published by our wonderful Sweepstakes counter, Nicole Schmitt. You can access the sanctioned shows list at njwrcsweeps.com Reminder: If you have a change of name, address, or email address, please contact our secretary, Doug Brown, with that information!

District 1 Report “Thank you Cody for all your hard work and putting our breed on the BIS map at a national level.." ~Meadow Gustafson

Hello from District 1! The 2019 National Convention was a wonderful experience and I really enjoyed connecting with all the people I only am able to talk to online. I love taking full advantage of discussing woolies face to face. It is quite an honor to see so many beautiful examples of the breed, all in one place. I was happy to see a lot of uniformity and prime examples of our wonderful breed. Huge congratulations to a very deserving person, Cody Landis, for his Youth BIS with his amazing Wooly. Thank you Cody for all your hard work and putting our breed on the BIS map at a national level. As winter approaches, breeders face the inevitable. There will be fewer litters and fewer shows. So what do we do? Here we take advantage of the down time to reevaluate our herd. We go over every animal. We look at reoccurring faults and what our strengths are. From there we formulate a plan to move forward in the spring. We take stock of all the supplies we have, see what we may need, such as new feeders, new water bottles, any bottoms of cages that may need replacing etc. We take time to do deep cleaning, repairing the barn

11

as needed, replacing or refurbishing next boxes and taking note of anything we can do to make the cold weather more bearable. It is also time to make sure you get your lights on a timer. Rabbits need about 12 – 14 hours of light a day to keep producing. Going to Lowe’s and picking up a timer for our barn lights was one of the best decisions we ever made. We went from about a 20% conception rate to about a 60% conception rate, just by adding light. If we have litters during the coldest weather, we will use propane patio heaters to keep the chill off of the nursery area. Therefore increasing the chance of litter survival. Although it is difficult, it is important for us to continue to try and have winter litters, so we have animals that can show when the Spring show season kicks in. Best wishes from Wild Meadows Rabbitry during the winter. Please keep me posted on your wins or exciting news. I would love to feature it here in the future! District 1 Meadow Gustafson

District 2 Report

“It was quite a show! The Jersey Wooly breed was placed front and center in the eyes of the entire ARBA membership." ~Amber Henderson

Amber Henderson ambermom@gmail.com Regions Represented:

Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Utah, Mexico

What can I say about the ARBA Convention? It was quite a show! The Jersey Wooly breed was placed front and center in the eyes of the entire ARBA membership thanks to the hard work and love of Youth exhibitor, Cody Landis and his handsome buck, Xander! Congratulations on your outstanding Best in Show win! And thank you to the skilled judges, Ramie Grissom, Misty Polasik, and ARBA President, Josh Humphries who are familiar with our breed and recognized the quality of such a fine animal.

recognized for winning both Best of Breed and Best Opposite Breed, 4 Best of Group wins, 2 Best Opposite Group wins, 12 First Place wins, 44 Top 5 placements, and several Top 10. Congratulations to Angel LeSage for your BOSB win, Lori Robasciotti on your BOG Shaded buck, the Bauers for BOSG Tan, as well as Bettina Curletto, Cindy Oldham, Susie Cederlof, Sarah Maki, Michaeline McConnell, Desiree Rogers, Arielle Spotswood, and our newest Youth member, Magdalene Jaeger, for all your excellent First Places, Top 5, and Top 10 wins.

More exciting news is that Bunnie Turley’s dedication and planning led to her passing the Orange presentation. I had the honor of going over the animals along with the rest of the NJWRC’s review committee and have to say that I was very impressed by the quality of the structure of presentation animals and fabulous improvement in consistency of color from last year. Cheers in celebration of Oranges earning their first pass could be heard across the showroom. Congratulations, Bunnie! We can’t wait to cheer you on next year, too.

It was wonderful to see so many of you in one place. Now that we’re home, let’s keep in touch with each other during this winter show season so we can coordinate which shows we will be attending and get them sanctioned. It’s more fun when we can have someone to show against and much easier to lend support to one another that way. Keeping in contact can be done through email (my email address is ambermom@gmail.com) or via Facebook groups such as California Rabbit Shows, Arizona Rabbit and Cavy Breeders Association (ASRCBA), Jersey Woolies, or Jersey Wooly Group.

District 3 Report

“If you haven’t, please volunteer any chance you may get." ~ Haley Birkholz

Hello Fellow Jersey Wooly Lovers!

Haley Jewel

okcorralmercedes@yahoo.com Regions Represented: Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South ­Dakota & ­Wisconsin

Phew...It has been a hard fall here in the Midwest. I think Mother Nature wanted to skip Fall all together and go right into winter. We had snow and bitter cold in early October, only having the pretty fall colors for two weeks. As I write this, we have had three good days of 40-degree weather, like Fall is supposed to be, but there is a huge snowstorm brewing in the north. This weather is hard on coats for all rabbits. I know my woolies aren't sure if they should molt or keep coat. All of this can be helped along by having a temperature-controlled barn. My barn has a window AC unit in the summer and a space heater in the winter. If you do use these types of temperature controls there are some extra precautions that need to be taken. The number one issue is Ammonia. This is one of the most common and dangerous gases when having livestock contained in a space. It is produced from the decomposition of manure. The protein in an animal’s

diet contains nitrogen that is metabolized by their bodies into animal protein such as milk or meat. However, any nitrogen that is not metabolized is excreted in the animal’s urine or feces. It is the process of decomposition of the manure that emits ammonia into the air. Most people can detect the smell of ammonia at 10 ppm. At 30 ppm it becomes irritating and can take emissions as low as 50 ppm to become toxic. Manure management and proper ventilation are two steps that you can take to control these emissions. I personally use an exhaust fan that is on an adjustable timer. You can also use stall deodorizers to neutralize ammonia and absorb odors and moisture. This will keep your barn dry and protect you, your rabbits, and the environment from the negative effects of ammonia emissions. Happy Holidays from my barn to yours! Haley Jewell

District 4 Report “The main rule I always follow is never let them get wet and cold. Protect them from the wind and rain" ~ Kendra Williams

Hello District 4 members! Greetings from Central Texas where this crazy weather has my rabbit barn full of floating rabbit hair and half naked rabbits! The temperatures go from 26 to 75 in one day. My poor rabbits don’t know what’s going on.

This time of year, the directors are usually asked to write a report on how to winterize your rabbit barn or how to protect your outside rabbits from harmful winter weather. With that being said, I can give you a few tips. My rabbits are inside an insulated metal barn. All I have to do it make sure their water doesn’t freeze, and keep the air circulated. I also keep the fans clean.

I do not use heaters. Occasionally I will use a heat lamp near a nest box but never pointing directly at it. As far as outside rabbits, the main rule I always follow is never let them get wet and cold. Protect them from the wind and rain with a tarp. Always make sure they have fresh, unfrozen water. That’s my short list of the main things you need to know to be able to keep your rabbits healthy during the winter. Please make sure you send me your wins so we can put them in the Fluff. I know show season is in full swing, so good luck to everyone!! And have fun! D4 Report W i n t e r Kendra 2 0 1 Williams 9 - 2 0 2

Convention has come and gone. I can say that 4 days of driving in a minivan definitely leaves something to be desired. My honey and I made the trip to Reno, NV. We decided that next time it’s in Reno, we will be flying…says the person who has never flown before. Congratulations goes to Amber Henderson (BOB) and Angel Lesage (BOS); beautiful rabbits. By the way, I was the lucky person to win the Jersey Wooly painted cookie jar at the raffle table that most have seen on the Facebook wooly groups. It is absolutely beautiful. Here in Louisiana, we finally got a cool snap while we were away at Convention. It came

www.njwrclub.org Check it out if you haven’t already. It’s a big improvement from the previous one. We are hoping to have a lot of educational content available thru this site.

I hope to see our district grow in the coming months. We can all help with that by promoting our breed. Set good examples of show etiquette. Recruit and help new members by setting them up with good show quality stock and help them fill out entries if needed and get their rabbits to the table on time. We can help the judges and writers keep the show running smoothly by getting our rabbits up in a timely fashion. This is a hobby, let’s have fun and make it a memorable experience for everyone! We have a new website: F l u f f

It appears that Winter is on its way. I know that for other areas of the United States, some have had snow. So, if you haven’t already, block any cold wind from getting to your rabbits and have hay at the standby to fill up the cages. Make sure to have plans on keeping any newborn kits warm. PLEASE be extremely careful with any heat lamps you may use. I have become aware of barn fires resulting from them. Personally, I have been known to bring in a cage with doe and kits and plant them in the dining room. With that being said, I have bred my does and I am looking forward to having some juniors ready for Nationals in April. Christmas is right around the corner and I hope everyone’s is merry. As always, I encourage anyone with news, funny stories, and of course Best in Show wins to contact me. I can easily be found on Facebook. Happy Holidays, Tracey Freeman ARBA Specialty Judge 980 District 6 Director

I want to give a huge thank you to Dan for his years as our District 7 Director. Anyone who has met Dan quickly learns of his friendliness, patience and wisdom. He has made great strides in dramatically improving Pointed Whites and has been a wonderful ambassador for the Wooly breed in general, encouraging several people to begin their herds. Dan, I hope the future brings you adventure, blessings and many gorgeous kits in the nestbox. In the past week (mid-November at the time of this writing) the weather has chilled dramatically here on my mountain. I've officially put away the water bottles and am diligently carting out water to the barn twice a day. My eldest Wooly is almost 9 so she came inside the house to spend her winter in comfort. All the other bunnies are snug in the barn and ready to hunker down for the cold season. Hope everyone else is set for winter and your nest boxes are filling

election! ~ Mae Swan

with juniors for Nationals! On November 9, 2019 Eastern Maine RBA held its Fall show. Several of our Canadian neighbors were able to attend and bring with them their outstanding animals! In show A under Joey Martin, Stephanie Green won BOB with Sugar Shaker's Sugar Hill. This gorgeous animal also received an honorable mention for BIS. Tara Lovely was awarded BOSB with her adorable More's Diego. Mike Mageles judged show B and Stephanie once again took BOB, this time with Sugar Shaker's True North. My SwanHonk's Jesse was given BOSB. In youth, Genevieve Swan was privileged to win BOB and BOSB in both shows with Heather Coin and Stacy Martin judging. I'd love to brag about other D7 Wooly wins. Please don't hesitate to email or pm me with show placings. Thank you for voting for me in the District 7 election! Hope to see you all at a show soon! D7 Report Mae Swan

Are you still on cloud nine after convention? I did not attend, but like a lot of us, I watched the live feed on my phone. When youth BIS was announced I scared my husband and dogs as I jumped up out of my chair and screamed. I could not contain my excitement! It could not happen to a nicer family, or breeders. Congratulations to the Landis family and all of the Jersey Wooly breed!!!! Now that convention is over, I hope your nest boxes are full with Nationals hopefuls. I look forward to seeing you at Nationals in Syracuse, NY in April. I maintain a Facebook group for my District 8 members, so please check to make sure you are a member of NJWRC District 8. Please also keep in mind that if you have had any changes to your personal information, such as address or phone number, to notify me. I would love to hear any suggestions or questions you may have for the club. Please remember to send those big win photos to me so that we can celebrate them in the Fluff.

This Fluffs message from me is “Make Time.”

Make time to promote Make time to educate Make time to volunteer to help your club Make time to help one another Make time to learn something new Make time to enjoy the hobby!

Remember that we all have our own interpretations of the Standard of Perfection. Every barn puts their own “style” on the breed. Every judge has their own interpretation, and we pay to show under them to hear their opinion. The connections we make in the hobby are priceless. Let’s all challenge ourselves to start at least three new breeders in the coming year. Since we left youth, we have watched the numbers slowly decline. They are the future of this breed. Who is in with us? New breeders equal new friendships! I hope to see you at the tables!

D8 Report Julie Aversa

Stand back from the table while judging is going on. Do not discuss rabbits that are on the table. Do not lean on the judging coops or reach over for your rabbits.

District 9 Report “The people! My District Nine pals were the reason that I chose to get back involved. Simply put, I missed my rabbit pals."

. ~ Bill Miller District 9 has a long history of Wooly "firsts." After all, High Bridge, New Jersey is the home of the very first Woolies! It was so wonderful for the breed to watch as a Wooly was chosen for Best in Show Youth at this year's ARBA convention.

The Landis family are well-loved folk and work very hard to promote our breed. Cody loves his rabbits! I cannot recall a show where he cannot be found cuddling a bunny. Congratulations Cody! While I could not be at convention this year, I watched the amazing announcement on Steven Buell's live stream. The win is one for the history books. Yes, I cried. I want to introduce myself to the fancy. For most of my life, I have shown, bred, and exhibited dogs. I am happily married to my partner in crime and best pal. While Kenny shares my interest in dogs, he is not often found in the barn! Still, I have always loved watching rabbits chomp on hay. It's my hiding place. I can go out to the barn and escape from the challenges of the day. Throughout the years, I have also bred and shown rabbits. I was involved in Woolies on and off for quite some time. Almost a decade ago, I decided to get out of rabbits. Andrea Ruck would keep me posted on the hobby and I would occasionally attend shows to visit my friends.

was for Frances Haskins to appreciate my efforts. Little did I expect to win the breed with my very much adored white buck! The win was exciting. The Best of Opposite doe from last year was this year's Best of Breed winner. Talk about

consistent recognition! She is simply beautiful. Congrats to Amber Henderson on another fine convention win. Angel LeSage had this year's Best of Opposite winner. Congratulations ladies. I am excited work with the BOD. Congratulations to our new presidentCheryl Loesch. Certainly, there is no one more fit for the job! She is one of our best!

Friends! The people! My District Nine pals were the reason that I chose to get back involved. Simply put, I missed my rabbit pals. I really enjoy the people. There are so many terribly clever folk involved in the rabbit fancy. Getting back involved was an easy decision! Where else in the world could I share my love of breeding animals with such an equally devoted group of pals! When I attended convention last year, my simple hope

Youth Report " This hobby is full of great moments and great people, when you are struggling remember the good times." ~ Lindsay Aversa

Lindsay Aversa

allstarwoolies@gmail.com

Youth Committee Chair for all Youth Jersey Wooly Members

Jersey Wooly history was made at Convention 2019 at Reno, Nevada. A big congratulations to Cody and Ashley Landis for winning Best of Breed with their Black Senior Buck AFB’s Xander and Best of Opposite Breed AFB’s Copa Cabana. They later went on to win Group and then later Best in Show. This is the first time in history that a Jersey Wooly has won Best in Show at an ARBA Convention. Also, a big congratulations to those who also won a group or even a class! When going to a bigger show there is a lot of competition, so pick a small goal to look forward to and celebrate your accomplishments. In this hobby, we all reach a point that we struggle.

A word of advice that I always give is: This hobby is full of great moments and great people, when you are struggling remember the good times and the reason you choose to be in this hobby. Because in the end the good memories outweigh the bad, and you are now in a rabbit family that will always have your back. Now that we are approaching Nationals, which is April 18th in Syracuse, New York, look to the National Jersey Wooly Youth Group Facebook page for polls on what you would like to do and see at Nationals 2020.

Please keep me posted on our D9 news!

District Nine congratulates our own Bunnie Turley on her successful convention pass for the Orange project. She works very hard. Bunnie is a longtime Wooly breeder and stalwart supporter of our breed. I am so grateful to call her my friend.

Smile a lot! Wooly folk are the absolute best!

District Nine has an amazing group of youth exhibitors. Rachael Walkup had a nice win with an AOV buck in September. The Walkups are grand folk and represent our breed so well!

And a shout out to Cody Landis for BIS with his broken buck at the Baltimore Howard show. It is always nice to watch our Youth put such great animals on the tables. They surely keep me working on my A game!

NJWRC Board Meeting 10/19/19

Present: Angel LeSage, Cheryl Loesch, Brenda Reilly, Meadow Gustafson,

Brenda Knier (D5 Rep elect). Meeting called to order at 6:10 pm

Treasurer’s Report: We now have three years of data on expenses and budgeting. Expenses and income are very close within one hundred dollars. Our Bank balance is healthy. A request was made that Brenda make a suggested budget for the board when it takes up discussion of the new year’s budget.

Special Ballot (Standards changes): The question was raised as to whether ballots need to be kept for one year, as we do for General Elections. Since the changes made are approved and written into the new standard by ARBA, it was thought that keeping these ballots was not necessary. Website: Jess Pearson rebuilt the site for us. It was a priority to get Convention information and a “shopping cart” for trio tickets up and running before convention. Jess did get many forms posted as well. • The host site for the njwrc.org page is not accessible to us, even with many requests for help from them to get into the site for maintenance.

• Jess set up a new URL (web address) for us at www. NJWRclub.org . The club will need to pay for the new site URL. • We will ask Jess to take down the old site, or have the host site take it down. • We can link items from our ISSUU site to the new website.

Breed Education: Many folks have talked about having breed education pieces available on the NJWRC website. The board discussed the need to have uniform educational pieces available for all to use, such as videos and Powerpoint presentations. These should be tightly linked to the standard. A committee may be appointed to work on breed education.

Board Communication: Most board communication has been on Yahoo Groups up to the recent past. Yahoo is not giving support to groups, and many functions have been disabled. Discussion has been on Facebook since June. Votes still have to be made via email. Constitution and ByLaws: There are a few things we need to discuss that may need changes to the CBL. • Membership fees--rather than asking for an amount change, it might be better to ask for a change that allows the board to adjust membership fees by a percentage every year or so as needed.

• Lifetime memberships -- currently set at $100.00 for anyone who has been a member in good standing for 3 years and is at least 40 years old. We may want to adjust the age upward for the good of the club.

General Election issue: D9 had 3 write-in ballots come in for a person who did not complete the required items for candidacy. The board directed Cheryl to discuss this with the person to determine whether they still want the position, and if so, to collect the required petition and biography to fulfill the requirements. Club documentation: Angel will make a dropbox for club documents, procedures and calendars so that the current president can have access to the materials. The meeting adjourned at 7:10 p.m.

NJWRC General Meeting ARBA Convention, 2019 ~ Monday, Oct. 21, 2019 ~ 10 am ~ ROOM A14 ~ RENO, NEVADA

1. Angel LeSage called the meeting to order. Kathy Moerbe volunteered to write the meeting minutes and email them to Cheryl Loesch. 2. Angel introduced the in-coming club president, Cheryl Loesch. Total 24 present, including President – Angel LeSage, VPCheryl Loesch, Treasurer-Brenda Reilly, Directors: Brenda Kneir (incoming), Tracey Freeman, and Amber Henderson. To facilitate a smooth transition for the in-coming president, Angel will donate her collection of computer files relating to club operations and procedures.

3. The Board of Directors met Sunday night (Oct. 20). No quorum was present. There were no items requiring a vote at that time.

4. NEWSLETTER - The FLUFF has been published online for four issues now. The decision had been made to go to an email edition last year, as cost is a concern in producing a printed issue ($3000-$5000 per quarter). Bulk mail is a slow delivery and many times does not arrive. The issues can now be downloaded as a PDF file from the digital publications website: www.issuu.com Members are encouraged to create their own account and save issues to a “stack” folder. 5. FACEBOOK - The club Facebook page was created as a place where the club can disseminate time-bound information about club events and announcements. The Facebook page is named: NATIONAL JERSEY WOOLY RABBIT CLUB. At present, Julie Aversa and Haley Birkholz are administrators of the page.

6. WEBSITE - Problems in the format of the old website and losing the webmaster forced the club to buy/create a new website: www.NJWRClub.org Jess Pearson is the new webmaster. Bunnie Turley volunteered to help clean up the new site every six months. The BOD (board of directors) has expansive plans to add an EDUCATION section, developed by a committee; as well as, plans to add a HALL OF FAME page to recognize those individuals since the creation of the award.

7. CONSTITUTION & BYLAWS - The club is governed by Robert’s Rules of Order; in the last few years, the board has used Robert’s Rules of Order for Small Boards. This is a more relaxed and versatile form of Roberts Rules designed for smaller groups and clubs.

8. GFA (Golden Fleece Auction) - Two years ago, the BOD held a long discussion to standardize the procedure of soliciting animals from top Open and Youth breeders. The Youth Trio was discontinued. The consensus held that it could impose a hardship on a Youth breeding program to donate one of their top animals. Current guidelines will be published in future newsletter issues on the GFA and RAFFLE TRIO. 9. TREASURER’S REPORT (Brenda Reilly): Brenda reviewed the two handouts given to attendees:

a. Three Year History Review

b. Current Report of 7/1/2019 through 10/12/2019

• • • • •

A minimum of $2000 from the Golden Fleece Auction is deposited in the Youth Scholarship fund for two yearly $1000 scholarship awards. Total assets: $25,287.28 Checking: $10,174.00 Scholarship: $1,055,88 Savings: $14,057.40

10. CONVENTION JUDGE SELECTION - Cheryl Loesch explained that every breed club secures judges many years in advance (up to 30 years). The convention host club pays the judges and makes the final decisions on judges, even changing judges assigned to certain breeds at the last moment. The NJWRC club gives the judges a gift, not a monetary fee. Brenda Reilly asked all members to complete a PREFERRED/NON-PREFERRED JUDGE BALLOT list. She emails judges, based on ballot results, for available show/years. Discussion followed about a preference of younger judges who will be updated and proficient on the updated/current Jersey Wooly standard. 11. STANDARD OF PERFECTION - The club turned in voting results to the ARBA Standards Committee Chair, Cathy Szychulda. All items passed with ARBA with a follow-up letter from the Chris after the Reno convention. Once the new SOP is published/sold in 2021, the new changes become effective on the judging table. 12. DISTRICT REPORTS

a. Amber Henderson (District 2): The youth pool is diminishing. Open breeders the district are in discussion on how to encourage youth participation through mentorship. They had many ideas for increasing interest. b. Tracey Freeman (District 6): Overall membership is declining in the district: however, it was a Louisiana Wooly that won BOB at the 2019 Nationals in Alexandria, LA.

Secretary's Report "I would like to discuss the importance of correct information being provided to your secretary." ~Doug Brown

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

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

Hello to all the members of the NJWRC. I hope this article finds you all doing well. In my article this time I would like to discuss the importance of correct information being provided to your secretary, whether that be a breed club or show secretary. I have been the secretary for various different breed specific shows, as well as for your national club and our local regional club. Incorrect information makes the job of any club secretary just that much more difficult. I will say that our club, as a whole, does a pretty good job of making sure that the information they provide is accurate. With that being said there is always room for a little improvement. The way things seem to be heading is everything is going away from paper and toward internet communications. This, along with any other forms of change, can be difficult for some people to get used to, myself included. With the movement within our own club of going to e-magazines, the importance of correct information has increased that much more. If for some reason your email has changed, I ask that you please contact me as soon as possible to let me know. Every issue that I send out I find one or two new emails on file that

are no longer valid and it makes my job that much more difficult to track down the correct information. Along with the magazines themselves, email reminders of membership renewal get sent out to the addresses that we have on file for everyone. There are currently some members that don’t have an email listed at all and that as well can be difficult. I assure you that we do try our best to get in contact with those people in any way we can. Our membership has been growing quite a bit lately and that is so nice to see. The love for our awesome breed seems to continue to grow. I encourage all our members to do their part and too promote this breed as much as possible. We have a pretty good group of people on the board for this club. The Directors for each district are always there to help in any way they possibly can. You can always feel free to reach out to me as well, I will do what I can to answer any questions that you may have. Sincerely Yours; Douglas Brown NJWRC Secretary

Continued from Page 21 c. Brenda Kneir (in-coming District 5): See the same problems with few shows in the district, prompting extended travel to compete in shows elsewhere

d. Cheryl Loesch (for District 3): We see the same issues as other districts in that there is declining number of youth. 13. NJWRC HISTORY ARCHIVE : Chair, Bethany Robertson, requests donations of archived newsletters. ARBA does have some archived items for club use. Kathy Moerbe noted she had four years of CD copies of newsletters/photos/articles when she was editor. She was asked to send copies to Bethany.

15. 2020 NATIONAL SHOW: Steven Buell provided an update of information. It will be a complete experience on SAT only, April 18, 2020 with a double all-breed show plus Nationals at Syracuse, NY, at the NY State Fairgrounds. A Facebook page is available: 2020 Jersey Wooly Nationals and All-Breed Double Show. A hotel block and boutique items will be added in the near future. Meeting adjourned by common consent. Respectfully submitted,

Kathy Moerbe (District 4)

14. RENO AWARDS - Cheryl reminded attendees to pick up 1st – 3rd place winner coupons which must be used by Tuesday, NOON. T h e

ORANGE COD PRESENTATION PASS AT THE ARBA CONVENTION IN RENO, NV 2019 Not since the 2004 Convention when the Broken Jersey Wooly variety was officially accepted by the ARBA, have NJWRC members been so excited about a specific Convention event. However, this year NJWRC members from coast to coast are eagerly awaiting the first Jersey Wooly Orange Variety COD presentation by a trio of breeders, Rose Marie (Bunnie) Turley, Christy Przybylowski, and Jenea McGowan, and according to Turley, things look promising for this year’s presentation.

October 22, 2019, thirty years since the first attempt by Lureen Nelson, the Orange JW Certificate of Development passed its first hurdle to ARBA acceptance. It was a moment of elation and disbelief. It's been about 10 years since we've had our foot in the door (thanks to Debbie Russell) but it seemed like this variety has had a doomsday cloud hovering over it throughout the years. Even this year had its share of challenges: from sparse junior doe numbers, a botfly in one of those few does just a month before the convention, to the discovery of a DQ bone break in my best senior doe and a broken nail, one week prior to convention, in another. Thankfully, we've come this far because the JW community has been there to support, cheer, and contribute to the breeding program. I am in debt to so many for teaching and challenging me to give it my all. I am grateful to God that I've learned to always have faith and hope. That support and faith will need to continue as we continue with the process. Currently, the holder of a COD has to go through a multiyear process to gain breed or variety acceptance. The ARBA standards committee requires the first presentation to be

eight animals (2 senior bucks, 2 senior does and 2 juniors of each sex that are the offspring of some combination of the seniors). The second and third presentations must be 12 animals. All animals must be products of the COD holder's breeding program; thus, it is very helpful to have several breeders on the certificate. We have three: Jenea McGowan, Christy Przybylowski and myself. Since the COD holder has two tries at each presentation, the process may take as many as six years to complete. Genetically, it is a challenge to produce a correct orange, since the variety is a result of the pairing of several recessive genes. These genes have been in the Jersey Wooly breed, but getting them to pair successfully, in a breed that only produces 3-4 babies on average, requires a number of specific crosses and a measure of luck. Furthermore, both the degree of smutting which is undesirable, and the rufous genes which are desirable, are factors not well understood genetically, and they are believed to be controlled by up to six or more genes. Thus, one is working

T h e

F l u f f

with attempting to correctly pair as many as 10 sets of genes, or more, in order to produce the best color, all while trying to improve type with selected outcrosses. Now that the first presentation (which requires most presentation animals come out of the same pedigree lineage) has passed there is more leeway in bringing in new lines and we've been blessed with having several of the nation's top breeders already contribute rabbits to help improve type. The challenge is to keep on improving color, while improving type. The ARBA standards committee wants to see all presentation animals match in both coat and nail color. This means that only one variety of orange, black or chocolate based, will be preferred for future presentations, however, either is acceptable for the regular show table. Currently, my chocolate-based oranges have the best color and type, so it is my intention to head in that direction. The plan is to keep improving black based oranges as well, and let the future generations dictate the final choice. Please keep supporting us, and we will see you in Harrisburg!

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.
