Important 4-H Rabbit Update, Cloverbud Showmanship Schedule, and Fair Photo Update

4-H Rabbit Update
We were unable to get the water and food dishes previously discussed for the new cages. Because of this, we are asking all rabbit members to supply their own food dishes and water bottles.  Rabbit members are encouraged to bring  water from home to keep rabbits on a water that they are used to.  Each rabbit cage will have a cabinet below it to store food and water.
