Rabbit handlers find bunnies easier to raise than steers, pigs
Logan Hancock’s Flemish giants earned success at the fair, but don’t expect them to jump up and down to celebrate.
“They are la-a-a-azy,” said Logan, 17, nodding his head to emphasize the word.
They’re also big. As the largest domesticated rabbit breed, Flemish giants live up to their name.
Logan won breed champion at the Panhandle-South Plains Fair’s rabbit show. To prepare the bunnies for judging, the Frenship senior and Hockley County 4-H member uses a horse brush to remove their loose fur, then perfects it with a fine-tooth saw blade.
