Our rabbitry started out as a Lincoln County 4-H/ Winfield FFA project with 4 Californian does and 1 buck. After a lot of success with the Californians at the County Fair, we took on Polish. Once we learned that we can show rabbits outside the fair we joined ARBA and have been exhibiting our rabbits at shows throughout Missouri and surrounding states. We hope to start attending shows farther away and even competing in ARBA Nationals. We are also members of the American Polish Rabbit Club, The Heartland Polish Rabbit Club, and The Californian Rabbit Specialty Club. As of May 2012 Painted Oaks is recognized by ARBA as a registered rabbitry.
