Rabbit Clinic Prepares 4-H Members [Video]
I attended a clinic on Saturday morning that I would probably never have guessed I would be at. There was 4-H Rabbit Clinic at the Otsego County Fair in Morris N.Y. I was there with my niece Karley Miller who exhibits her rabbits at the fair. The clinic was taught by Audrainna Ericson who volunteered her time to teach the 4-H members how to correctly show their rabbits. To show means to present their animals to a judge. There is a list of things you need to do. It is really very involved but it gives the rabbit owner real insight to the care, and health of their rabbits. Having a show animal teaches responsibility. You can immediately tell when a rabbit is used to being handled or not. Nine year old, Jacob Spoor, was clearly comfortable with the task at hand (and his bunny was cute to boot).
I enjoyed watching the kids at the clinic and took away new knowledge and respect of showing rabbits. I'll be sure to check during fair week, July 31-August 5th, to see how everyone did. Don't forget, I'll be broadcasting live from the fair on Tuesday July 31rst!
