    When I woke up this morning and looked ou the window I saw my prize American white rabbit doe under my pear tree. Somehow she had gotten/fell out of her cage and crawled 500 feet to the tree. The way she was acting I thought she may have broken her back. I called doc and got her in to the vet. It's now 5 hours later and we are back home. Frost has a fractured hip and a splintered femur. Unfortunately I think her show career is over but at least she can still be used as a brood doe. She took 1st, B.O.V., B.O.S. and then 2nd at the ARBA National convention. She has done very well in her first two.shows for a 12 week old. Thoughts and praers for the little bunnies recovery please. I have waited and waited for a rabbit of her quality and now because of a broken cage latch that I missed she is hurt.

    I hope she gets to feeling better and grow up to give you many babies to show.
  3. Really sorry about your troubles . . .

    Can you show some good pics of the american female?
    I have a rabbit that I suspect is one, but am not sure.
    She just had a litter of pure black babies.

    I don't have a good side shot of her but I can find a picture or look up a link that shows some. The American has a mandolin shaped body. I am on my phone right now so not sure how to add pictures or links.
