My name is Wendy Robinette, and I run a small family rabbitry here in Northwest Louisiana. My daughters and I have fallen in love with breeding and showing Lionheads and American Fuzzy Lops.
My favorite color is sage green, and my favorite vegetable is TACOS. Gardening has become a passion, and I am slightly addicted to hatching chicken eggs in the incubator. We breed show quality Lionheads and American Fuzzy Lop rabbits, and we adore all the friendships that we have made along the way.
I am a mama to two beautiful teenage girls who keep me busy with their basketball, softball, and cheerleading schedules. When sports start to slow down they are dragging me to ALL the rabbit shows. Being their mom and watching them shine is a total blessing from God.
I am a lover of nature. I look forward to seeing new life spring up from the earth and out of the bunny barn every year. I am a Jesus follower, and I love to sing. My favorite hobby is kayaking on the lake traveling to see new places.
I love the idea of childhood being spent barefooted in the grass and collecting your breakfast out of the coop every morning. Laying on a blanket and making out shapes in the clouds, or reading a good book will always win over television or video games.
Showing With Youth
Right now all of the shows that we attend are for my girls. They started out showing Holland Lops, but when they saw their first Lionhead at a rabbit show it was all over. We went home from our first rabbit show with a new Lionhead doe.
My best friend and I quickly decided to take a 24 hour round trip to Oklahoma to pick up more lionheads and rabbit cages. Before we knew it we had a living room full of lionhead bunnies. I didn't even have a bunny barn at the time, but I didn't even care.
Eventually the bunny barn came together, and we added more cages and more rabbits... inlcuding a small side project of American Fuzzy Lops. Lionheads are our main focus, but we are working on AFL's on a very small scale.
My daughter Peyton is the main exhibitor at rabbit shows. She loves it! She just grand championed her first lionhead, and she is already planning for Nationals.
