Today is the final day of 2009, it marks the end of a truly wonderful and inspiring year.
So many nice things have happened this year in my life crossing all spectrums, I purchased my first home, I've continued to be fortunate enough to work in a field that I love, I've expanded my menagerie to include chickens, goats and guinea fowl.
While these few things may seem silly or small to others they are a huge part of who I am. With the rabbits some of my favorite accomplishments include granding my first ever rabbit, a homebred Belgian Hare doe Maeve, and probably the best surprise came in my mom's mail yesterday, I am number 3 in open Specialty points in Belgian Hares in the country!! I consider this a huge honor, especially since I've only attended 4 sanctioned Belgian Hare shows this entire year and have only been raising hares for 2 years!
2010 brings many plans, thoughts, ideas and goals to mind. In rabbits I hope to maintain my herd quality even if my numbers are smaller, and while I may not be able to shows as often as I have in the past, I do hope that my rabbits continue to perform well and meet my expectations and interpertations of their standards.
With the rest of the farm, I hope to continue to learn more about the animals I keep and to provide them with good care.
Outside the farm I hope to continue to learn more about veterinary medicine at work and perform well in class at college.
A huge thanks to everyone who made this year so wonderful, especially to my family for being so supportive of me. I hope 2010 brings great things to all, Happy New Year!
