I’m so sad to have to report this. My Fear of Missing Out is coming true.
We can’t attend Arizona State this year.
Our very first state show our son was less than one year old and I carried him in a sling on my back while putting champagne d’argent up on the show table. Over the years the state show has been the highlight of our year, a time when we see the breeders who can’t make it to the smaller shows, and a space to show our rabbits against a larger competitive pool.
The kids have always had great experiences competing in the Youth Royalty events.
Oh, we are missing out!
Would you like to know why?!
It’s the goat’s fault.
Lesson learned, this coming fall, when love is in the air, we will plan our goat breedings a bit differently so that their births don’t coincide with our beloved state rabbit show.
I’m certain that there will be lovely events taking place this weekend in the balmy weather.
We’ll be at home, freezing, staring at goat bottoms and crossing our fingers for precious baby baa-ers.
Be sure to keep us posted on what happens!
