Victoria Brown

I started showing rabbits around 3 years ago as I had a huge interest in watching my sister look after hers and see what she did at shows, ever since then, I have had a huge interest that has grown throughout the years, ever since I started I have always shown mini lops but I heart always went to the black otters so from then on I have had black otters, I had my first  litter of black otters a few months into showing and after that I became more interested in them and I bred my most successful rabbit ‘Donny’ who was very successful for me in my short time in rabbits, Best Junior at Scottish Championship show, Best junior at the biggest show of the year The Bradford Championship Show. Lenny who won Best Lop in the St Ledges Stakes this year at The Bradford 2020. Being part of the fancy is amazing it is it all about the winning but it's making new friends from all over some that become like family.

Fur & Feather Junior Club Editor

The Junior Fanciers are increasing in numbers year on year and are helping to contribute to the great number of exhibits at the rabbit shows around the country. The juniors now also have their own page in the Fur and Feather magazine which enables them to send in pictures and letters and read how other juniors around the UK are doing. It is a great success as it also means that juniors are allowed to talk about matters that they think need improving in the rabbit Fancy as a whole.
The Junior Fancy is filled with juniors up to the age of 16 and this gives them the chance to compete against people their own age and this means that great friendships are made and also we get to meet people from all over the country. The juniors like everyone need help from time to time and this is given from the older fanciers who help them with their stock and also to learn about all the breeds and colours. A big part that the juniors help with, is the book stewarding as this for one helps them understand how the rabbits are judged and also helps them become more familiar with the rabbit fanciers. This then leads on to learning to judge but not everyone goes down this route as its not for them but for some it is.

The Juniors are the future of the Rabbit Fancy and they need all the encouragement that can be given as in this day and age it is hard to finance their rabbits and be prepared to look after them. The Juniors is where all the great fanciers of the past and present began, remember that you were in their shoes once and remember how it felt .Thank you for reading about the Juniors and I hope you enjoyed it.
