To most serious breeders, this probably seems like not very many shows at all. I've realized that most breeders go to about a show every single weekend. To be competitive enough nationwide, and to grand all your stock (most breeders have over 20 Hollands), you need to attend that many shows to achieve your goals. I understand that.
Since I'm still a new breeder, I'm gradually getting into the swing of things still. I love rabbit shows, I can sense a serious addiction about to brew (I'll need to control that!). My parents would never give up every weekend to take me to a show, and I don't expect them to at all. I don't want this hobby of mine to become a burden on anybody.
I'll be driving soon and even then I probably still won't go to a show every weekend. My rabbits are my hobby, my passion. I don't want all the traveling to become a bore.
There isn't even a show in WA every week. They have about 2 a month. Traveling outside the state just isn't practical for me or my family, at this point in our lives. Maybe once I move out...I want to attend a Convention and Holland Lop Nationals, but I have years to keep learning and trying to produce something worth showing at such a big show like that!
