Breeding rabbits and cavies is both an art and a science - knowing what combinations will give you the correct body type, size and coat/wool.  I am always studying pedigrees and body types not to mention coat/wool quality such as texture & density to further my bloodlines, researching to see where the next 'star' might come from.  This is where the 'fun' of breeding angoras and long hair cavies lie! 


We have very strict standards when it comes to selecting rabbits and cavies for show and even stricter standards when it comes to finding great and loving homes that included fiber, pet and retirement homes. We are NEVER in a hurry to move out show prospects. In fact, we prefer to hold on to them as long as possible so we can properly evaluate them for their true potential as a show or brood animal. 


We believe that all rabbits and cavies should have a name and treat them like members of the family. We try to treat all of our rabbits and cavies with dignity and respect. We pride ourselves on being a small rabbitry and caviary, where we can still give all of our rabbit and piggy’s treats such as carrots or a piece of apple at night. All of our critters, both angora and cavy, are given lots of attention multiple times a day. Our four legged kids thrive on personalized attention.


In Guinea Pigs aka Cavies we exclusively work with the Coronet breed. In rabbits, our focus is on English Angoras & Giant Angoras and the preservation of their unique characteristics.  


I (Melissa) am a DUAL licensed Rabbit and Cavy Registrar for the American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA). 


We vaccinate our rabbits for the following:

We vaccinate for the prevention of Pasteurella. We use the BunnyVac vaccine which is USDA licensed for the prevention of Pasteurella infections in rabbits.

We vaccinate  (take our rabbits to a licensed veterinarian) who has been granted permission to vaccinate for the prevention of Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease also known as RHDV2. We use the  Medgene vaccine which was  granted Emergency Use Authorization from the USDA.

*We do this because we show.*


We are working closely with The Bill Sims Wool and Mohair Research Laboratory, housed at the Texas A&M University Agricultural Research and Extension Center (now Texas AgriLife Research), San Angelo, Texas to have our English Angora and Giant Angora "Fiber Tested." 

The OFDA200 is an instrument that is used by the research center to rapidly, accurate measurement of diameter, length, curvature (crimp), mean and distribution of many the fiber. 

Micron count/measurement is the expressed micron average of the diameters of the fibers in the sample that was evaluated. 

We chose to have our fiber tested to learn more about what our show line is producing in terms of fiber characteristics. Very few angora fiber breeders if any have there fiber tested.
