Up For Grabs

While feeding the rabbits this morning, it occurred to me that it's time to let Basil Stag Hare find a new place. So far I have one of his sons, who is already growing bigger than Basil is, and I plan on keeping one more young buck out of him, so he's sort of being a hay burner right now... It's time to make room in the rabbitry, so Basil is now up for grabs to anyone who wants a good meat buck.


I weighed Basil yesterday and he's roughly 8 1/2 to 9 lbs. which fits the ARBA standard. He's thickset and has a meaty build. He also throws offspring that have a really nice meat/bone ratio (meaning tiny bones to lots of meat).


He's a purebred Californian, but not pedigreed. His previous owner couldn't find the papers. 

 I'm asking $25 for this big guy, and if you would like to contact me about him, you can do so by clicking HERE.

Do you know if he would be up to standards for confirmation class? I have been looking for a Californian for 4h conf.

^Yes, he fits the standard for conformation classes. However, I don't really recommend him for showing; or at least not for kids. He's never been handled, hates to be touched, and is probably best suited to just be a stud. He's a bog fella', and I think kids might have a hard time trying to keep a hold on him. I know I have a hard time with him, and I've been handling rabbits for over eight years! :-/
