I suppose like many rabbit breeders, my rabbitry is full of show babies with no rabbit shows to attend. My breeding plan focused on the West Coast Classic in Reno, and we were very disappointed that we would not be able to participate.
We stocked up on rabbit food just in case the local feed store closed, but thankfully they were declared an essential business and now operate as a drive through. Despite hearing about the pandemic on TV, it didn't really hit home until I went to the feed store for my usual monthly purchases and I was greeted by an employee in mask and gloves. I admit that was an unexpected dose of reality: the pandemic had infected our rural community, not the virus--but the fear of the unknown.
So as life has slowed down, I find myself just sitting in my rabbitry rocking away with a baby, while watching my favorite TV shows. I guess this is a glimpse into life during retirement.
Hope everyone stays safe and we are all able to return to our favorite rabbit shows next year.
