Well, I won't rehash what others have described and photographed so well. Chris and Leslie did a wonderful job of documenting the meeting, which was fun and rewarding for all involved. Thank you, Elaina, for hosting it and us!
I had to have a bunny put down last night. Somehow, a little 4 week old chocolate otter buck got his foot caught in the floor wire and nearly tore half his hind leg off. I sobbed hysterically as I worked for about 10 minutes before I could get him loose, and it was a hopeless situation. Yes, he could have lived, but he would have have been a "special needs" bunny for the rest of his life, and I don't know that I could have found the right home for him. So I took him to the vet's to be humanely put down, as neither Bob nor I could bring ourselves to do it, and my meat rabbit breeder friend was at work and thus not available.
The other 3 otters appear to be does. If so, I'm back to square one in breeding myself a buck.
I did confirm one thing - one of the surviving otters has 2 recessive wideband genes! That means Vinnie does indeed carry wide band! I had hoped he did, now I know for sure! :) I hope to post pictures this weekend detailing how to determine the likely wideband genes of tan pattern bunnies.
