    Okay guys, cuteness overload! I raised bunnies for FFA as well. New Zealands and Californians for meat pens, and french lops, a flemish giant, and a mini rex for breed rabbits. I entered my french lop, Mr. French and my flemish giant, Dolly, in the costume contest at the Houston Livestock Show. I ended up getting 2nd place with my little Hamburglar! I'm surprised Beach Bunny Babe didn't make it, though And yes, that is a child's bathing suit on Dolly. She was named after Dolly Parton due to her giant dewlap. :)

    OMG how cute! I have to tell you, I have that same fabric with the peace signs, I used it in my daughter's quilt I made, and I also bought that little purse(I think it came in a 3 pack) for my kids! How funny! Bunnies are so cute, I wish I wasn't deathly allergic to them :(

    Haha, thank you! I think I still have that fabric, too! We literally threw those costumes together the night before. I was even wearing a shirt that said, "Would you like Mr. French fries with that?" I miss that bunny. He was a big ol' lovebug. Sadly, he died a little under a year after those pics were taken. He was an older bunny, around 6-7 and that's pretty much their lifespan.

    Maybe you could get a Rex or Mini Rex? They lack the guard hairs that all other rabbits have and I'm not sure if that would help with allergies? They are SUPER soft, softer than velvet. I gave my mini rex Mickie to my fellow FFA friend's little sister and they're best friends. :)

    Awww I'm sorry to hear that :( I had a bunny when I was in FFA in HS also, I can't remember what she was though. She was big and black and white. She had babies and they were the cutest things I ever saw! You did great with those costumes, very creative especially for less than a day's worth of planning! I don't know if a rex would be any different, I wonder..

    Baby bunnies are the cutest! I always just want to snuggle them to bits.

    The only New Zealand breeder I knew went out of business due to finances. Around here everyone pretty much raised Calis. She had some nice reds and blacks, too.

    Bless you kayella. I was wondering what a NZR was. I thought New Zealand.
    Texasgal keeps referring to people and things I have no clue about.
    Brad Paisley, Captain Jack, NZR, and a few other things.
    I feel so lost at times I don't know whether to scratch my watch or wind my butt.
    Shalom
