About the Giveaway
As a youth, I benefited greatly from the generosity of other breeders. This contest was designed as a way to give to back. While I appreciate the importance of encouraging new people to raise Tans, this specific contest is geared towards current youth Tan breeders who are interested in adding additional animals to their herd. No herd is too small or too large to qualify (see additional requirements below).
About the Rabbits


The giveaway is for a breeding pair of Tans. A pair of blacks will be the default,  but I may be able to substitute one or two blues , lilacs or chocolates upon request. That being said, please enter the contest only if you will be happy with blacks. While the rabbits will be show quality my hope is that the recipient is more interested in breeding the pair to create his/her own winners. For that reason I will attempt to select either older juniors or young seniors so that the winner can get started breeding them right away. The rabbits will be specifically selected to compliment each another for breeding purposes.


Selection Process


I have asked three breeders (who will remain anonymous) to review the entries and make a selection. I will remove all identifying information from the submissions before giving entries to the selection committee. I will not be involved in the selection process.
