Are you interested in the world of rabbit raising, but don’t know where to dig in?  The competitive rabbit hobby is increasing its benefits for young rabbit breeders, and you need a mentor to show you how to quickly make the most of them.  In addition to the age-old rewards of properly caring for animals, today’s programs such as 4-H rabbit clubs, scholarships, and ARBA youth contests give young rabbit project members a chance to sharpen their skills and enjoy some friendly competition.  Contests such as 4-H showmanship and ARBA royalty are growing in popularity.  To excel quickly, you need someone to show you the ropes.   Now Rabbit Smarties Publishers offers you that mentor– paperback style.

Rewritten for 2011, the Youth Rabbit Project Study Guide is your shortcut to success in the rabbit world.  This book introduces you to the different options offered by the competitive rabbit hobby, helping you choose which activities would suit you best.  This book provides a broad coverage of the basics of rabbit care, health, and breeding, then describes the fine points of higher competition.  Study an illustrated 4-H rabbit showmanship guide, learn how to produce a tip-top market pen, and discover ARBA breed ID secrets from a winner of national breed ID competitions!  The Study Guide tops it off with quizzes, tips on fair decor, and plenty of color photos.
