Rabbits

 

Diem Rabbitry


Based in Seaside, Oregon we raise quality White, Black, Blue, and Broken New Zealand rabbits for meat and show. We select does and bucks for conformation according to the ARBA standard of perfection. We place further emphasis on animals that gain weight quickly and efficiently, does that raise large litters, and animals with gentle temperaments.

OUR DOES:

SCF Bella
Broken Black Sr. Doe – DOB 2/04/16

Bella is the matriarch of the barn. Big girl with great mothering skills, excellent width to her hindquarters, and carries blue.

Diem’s Rio
White Sr. Doe – DOB 7/21/16 – 1 leg

Huge doe, height and width in her hindquarters to spare, and a lovely temperament. Throws nice big litters too.

Birdsong’s Blossom
Broken Black Sr. Doe- DOB 11/9/16 – 1 leg

BOB Canby 2017! Diva of the barn, Blossom is pretty and she knows it. Very nice type and crazy for sunflower seeds.

Diem’s Buttercup
Black Int. Doe- DOB 7/18/17

Out of Blossom, Buttercup is not quite as strong in the shoulders as her sister Bee, but she’ll stay for now.

Diem’s Bee
Black Int. Doe- DOB 7/18/17

Promising doe out of Blossom, got first in her class in McMinnville. She’ll be going to more shows in 2018.

Diem’s Molalla
Black Jr. Doe- DOB 9/26/17

Mo has a nice peak like her mother, Rio. Her shoulders have started to come in nicely as well.

 

OUR BUCKS:

Birdsong’s Santolina
Black Sr. Buck- DOB 1/20/17 –  1 leg

Santolina won BOV or BOSV at almost every show he went to. Nice strong shoulders and well balanced, he’s also a blue carrier and a snuggler.

Diem’s Wilson
Black Sr. Buck- DOB 6/21/17

IMG_1663
Wilson is a huge boy out of Rio, wish he had more height to his rise, but overall he’s well balanced and a very sweet rabbit.

Bonnie’s BGP10 “Grinch”
Black Int. Buck- DOB 7/5/17

Grinch, despite the name, is super sweet and curious. He’s a tad narrow, but has great length. Hailing from Spokane, WA, he’s not related to anyone else in the barn!

Diem’s Buffalo Treehopper
Black Int. Buck- DOB 7/18/17

IMG_1665
Really nice buck out of Blossom and Bug. He’s got massive shoulders and great width to his hindquarters. Excited to get him to some more shows in 2018.
