In my world

I, for one, was very happy for this latest snow. I love big snowstorms! I got a lot of organizing and cleaning done, and my fair share of relaxing. I have three rabbit does with litters on the way, all meat rabbits. I’ll have Californians, New Zealand/Californian crosses, and American Blue/Silver Fox crosses. I’m experimenting to see which crosses produce the best meat rabbits.

I’m not the only one happy about the snow. The New England Runner Sledding Championships are coming right up! Trials are Saturday, Feb. 16, and Race Day is Saturday, Feb. 23. Both events take place on Hogback Mountain on Bragdon Road in Montville. A super-fun event not to be missed! Keep up on the latest info at www.noumbrella.com/runnersled.
