Welcome to our Newest / Latest photos page!



I feel this is what we have done in Re ~ Developing Curly Rex Rabbits, Astrex Rabbits, from near extinction. Sixty years have passed since curly bunnies, basically vanished off the earth !! When I began this project, this dream, 6 years ago, there was no path to follow ~~ and no one could direct me where to even begin to make a "new trail"... so I begin to carve one, and along the way, after 2 or 3 years, met a few dedicated others, such as Sonja, Dr. LukeFahr, Leslie in Hawaii, Kathy in Michigan, Mr. Bob, Larry, etc. that believed I could... that believed curly rex rabbits could thrive and live again !! Plus, Ripples was born on Thanksgiving Day of 2001 ~~ I took him as a Heaven sent gift of encouragement !!

Magic Never Ceases When we Believe !!

Magic truly never ceases when We BELIEVE !! Because these curly wavy bunnies have been RE ~ CREATED on a "wing and a prayer belief that we could" , along with hard work in rabbitry keeping, years of studying ( 1999 through present 2006) scraps of information on all sorts of curly animal genetics, and just simply never doubting that We could do it... no matter the set backs, the losses of certain vital rabbits in our program, or the disbelief of many. Never doubting and believing ~~ we are blessed to do so... So thankfully I write this: yet. with tears, for the losses we've suffered, and moreso, with smiles and joy for the many triumphs we have, in the form of several new Spring 2006 editions to our curly bunny herds. Kindly, and Sincerely, Rett

Blue Tan partially curly wavy Junior doe donated to our Astrex Rabbbit Re ~ Development program by Mr. Stephen Roush, ARBA Judge in Georgia. This cutie came out of his Tan Mini Rex Project. We have high hopes of crossing her with our bucks to produce full body curl. She's a REAL cutie pie.

Meet Story Book, a young sable curly wavy doe. She's a very pretty girl, and we look foward to her first litter soon. She 's called "Story" for her nickname.and she's got personally to boot !! She's a real show off and is sure she's "royality". Not that our rabbits are spoiled rotten or anything....sigh.

" In Loving Memory of Fahr "
This was my beloved Fahr, a curly wavy frosted gray buck, donated by Steven into our program 2 yrs ago. To my deep sadness, he was lost during a dog attack on the rabbitry in early April this year, when a half wild shepard/lab mix that was allowed to "free roam" breeched the 5 ft perimeter fences and tore him out of his cage.
NOTE to Dog Owners:
Dog owners, please know where your dogs "are" and keep them under control, as most states have leash laws, and you, as the owner, can/will be legally liable for damages your unsupervised and uncontrolled dog/s cause. Sadly though, the heartache, caused by unsupervised, allowed to roam dogs, that kill or injure other's animals / livestock/ etc. is unrepairable, and truly uncompensable by Law charges or monitary repayments... as no amount of money can replace a lost beloved pet. Plus, responsible dog owners responsibly keep their dogs secure for their own animal's protection from roaming. Kindly and very Sincerely, Rett



Thank you most kindly for Visiting with us !! Rett
Thank you most kindly to Dr. Steven Lukefahr for all his wonderful help, with the buns, stock, etc. You have been, and are, a wonderful "bunny buddy", and I appreciate your sincere efforts to answer my theories, questions, etc. I also deeply appreciate your kindness. Rett :-)
