Jezuit's Rabbitry Located in Holt, Michigan
We are a small rabbitry of about 45 holes located in mid Michigan. We concentrate mainly on Mini Rex as they are our true passion. We raised the colors of Chocolates, Blacks, Brokens and Otters. Occasionally we will have that odd color pop out. Chocolates are what we strive to be compeitive in. Sierra and Tyler have finished within the top 5 in the Nation for the 4 years of raising them.
The other breeds that we do are: American Sables, Mini Lop and Tans. We have also dabbled in Jersey Wooly, Creme D Argent, Holland Lops and Silver Fox.
Sierra was very compeitive in American Sables placing #1 in the Nation for 2009, 2010 and 2011. She also placed #1 Fur at the 2010 ARBA Convention. She has decided now to focus on Mini Lops so most of the American Sables are moving out of our barn. We enjoy helping new breeders get started and will find a nice selection to get someone started. Update: 2016 will bring American Sables back to the barn!!!
Penny is ARBA Judge #946 achieving this goal in 2014. This has been a major goal for her. She decided to learn the wool breeds, hense the jersey's in 2011. Once she was confident in that she has moved to the running breed of Tans. Mostly focusing on Chocolate and blacks. But who knows... we will see if anything else pops out! She is also a leader in her county for a 4-H club, Rabbit Superintedent, 4-H Council President (for 3 years), teaches workshops throughout the state and is a 4-H Rabbit judge. Traveling the U S and meeting new people is an awesome experience for all of us!
We do travel to shows throughout the country and have shown as far as San Diego, CA at the 2009 ARBA Convention. We have attended the last 7 National convention and have placed very well. Look for us at a show and we will be happy to share with you what we can!
We are also a partnership with Mckenna Lynch (hense the Jezuit/Lynch prefix on our animals). Bringing both of our herds together has been a huge positive point for us. This is for the Open animals we show. Sierra is still a youth in 2016 and will be for another 2 years so she will still be showing some in youth also.
