Area youth do well with rabbits at State Fair

Tuesday, August 28, 2007

INDIANAPOLIS -- Several Clay County youngsters competed in the 2007 Indiana State Fair this year.

Technical errors prevented The Brazil Times from accurately reporting the 2007 State Fair rabbit results.

However, several 4-H youth faired well in the category, with the youngsters tallying nine firsts in rabbits.

Hannah VanHorn managed to pick up four firsts in rabbits this year, including winning Mini Rex (Mini Rex Blue) Best of Variety, Mini Rex (Ruby-Eyed White) Best of Variety, Mini Rex (Ruby-Eyed White) Senior Buck, and Mini Rex (Mini Rex Blue) Senior Buck.

Jordan VanHorn brought home one of the biggest awards in rabbits this year after winning Reserve Champion in Fryer-Fryer (Single).

In addition, Joey Dierdorf picked up three firsts in rabbits, winning Netherland Dwarf (Netherland Self Group REW-Best Opposite Sex of Variety), Netherland Dwarf-Tan Pattern Otter -- Junior Doe, and Netherland Dwarf-Netherland Self Group REW-Junior Doe.

Carrie Riddell also picked up a first in rabbits, winning Polish-Polish Blue-Junior Doe.
