Saturday Musings

Went over to my mom's to help her with the yard sale. Wow! I am still reeling from the amount of people that showed up. They were coming out of the wood work. And we have tomorrow also. But I will only be there for a little while as me and teenage monster have a memorial to attend.

But I wanted to share some information that I found on line about shearing angora bunnies. Fascinating stuff.

I just need to figure out what type of angora bunny that I want to raise. I am thinking that I can raise them to sell. Just 1 male and 1 female. That should work out well. Then I can sell the babies and get the hair from the two adults. Since I have no way to spin the hair I will just card it and see if I can sell it that way. And if not then I will have to learn how to spin the hair... Sounds like another winter project... LOL! This might be a really good inexpensive way to make some extra money. Anyone out there have bunnies like this want to share your expertise. It would be greatly appreciated. As you know I am a suburban dweller and most folks around here already look at me funny when I ask questions... LOL!

I know I am putting the cart before the horse... Learning about what to do with the finished product instead of learning about the care and feeding of them.... I'll do that next. But until then, here is a video on Drop Spinning!

I've watched other people spin before- they make it look so easy. But I've never had the courage to try it.
I don't know anything about rabbits so I'm no good for advice- but it sounds like a good idea to me.
