Halsey's Gordon X Ferchaud's Bess
2nd place Sr buck, Louisville Convention
Ferchaud's Eclipse X Ferchaud's Wildbird
Mystery has an interesting story, he was mistaken for another rabbit in the barn that I was keeping just to keep an old time bloodline alive. For months I just moved him from cage to cage. 3 weeks before convention, I decided I didn't want to bother keeping those extra rabbits, so I took him out to evaluate, and was I surprised to see what he had blossomed into! The twist come when I looked at his ear number and realized that the rabbit I had been moving around was not the one I thought it had been, I had forgotten all about this one, so at 8 months of age he came out of the barn and went to his very first show ever, the Louisville Convention, where he placed 3rd in Sr bucks right behind Crossfire!

|Once the website is more up to date, you'll see references throughout to Nemo X Lite and Highway X Sparrow babies.These 2 crosses produced what I consider to be the template animals for my line of Rhinelanders. Please read Mike Avesing's article for further explanation of template animals and how linebreeding influences and strengthens a line of rabbits.
I exploded my breeding program first around the Nemo X Lite babies, then 3 years later the Highway X Sparrow cross. By linebreeding and inbreeding these and producing so many excellent animals that the loss of the foundation animals did not impact on my breeding program.
