Reference Bucks These were the that bucks we relied upon for many years.
Note: All of our rabbits are photographed after being set up in a show pose and allowed to relax. We use a digital camera mounted on a tripod to capture the images. Even then the active Mini Rex will manage to move out of the desired set up.
If you are viewing these pages with a wide angle Monitor you need to switch to the alternate view on your monitor to see the photographs in the correct proportions. Wide angle monitor stretch and flatten images.
Iris Patch Brimstone: 6/2/2001 -2/7/2011
NFS Gramps at 7 ( do I get food for this?)
(37IPK) Blue son of Music Maker and Sultry Mood took BOV Blue and BOS Mini Rex at the 2001 ARBA Convention in San Diego California over 305 bucks in competition. He continues in a long line of homebred Blues who have performed well at ARBA Conventions and National Mini Rex shows .
His Eileen litter performed very well at the 2005 convention in spite of being a few weeks shy of prime coats. One doe sold to a youth breeder placed 2nd in the youth and the pair I kept placed second in very strong competition with excellent remarks.
His great great granddaughter Can't Touch This is the reining Queen of the barn.

Iris Patch Degas
8/8/07 Degas succumed to our unrelenting heat when the 101 degree temperature broke records here in Maryland.
Outstanding Castor Buck, pure Cresthill breeding with excellent color and type. 1st place Senior Buck at the 2003 ARBA Convention. He promises to cross well with the Castor does that we bred in 2004 and 2003 His litters have been outstanding rich color, deep undercolor, excellent belly color. June 2004 we had a surprise born, while C1's pedigree is 3 generations of Castor we had a Black born to a Castor doe that we knew had a Black in the 5th generation ( black was out of 2 Castors) Those recessives can stay hidden for a long time. He has passed his breeding panel testing with flying colors. 5 litters in the first round and nearly all have been top show quality sometimes it is hard to decide which one is the best. We decided on 4 does to keep for breeding in 2005.
One buck went home with Jan Coffelt and one buck went home with Sandy Lowery.
Saddly we lost C1 in December 2005.
