But these were welcome visitors.MARYANNE KIPLING April 10, 2014 3:09am
The weekend of March 22 and 23 saw Seymour invaded by rabbits. Not the vermin kind, but the fancy kind.
The town hosted the first-ever fancy rabbit convention.
Some 430 rabbits comprising about 23 breeds converged on the exhibition shed in Kings Park to be judged by esteemed United Kingdom judge Derek Medlock.
Guests from as far away as Western Australia, Tasmania, NSW and SA arrived bringing their bunnies with them for this prestigious event.
The show was hosted by the Northern Country Rabbit Club which is based in Seymour — in conjunction with their governing body the Australian National Rabbit Council which is based in Western Australia.
The event ran over two days with a dinner dance held at the Seymour club on the Saturday night. A good time was had by all.
The eventual winner was a lovely sooty fawn Mini Lop bred and owned by Allan Harvey (NSW).
Reserve Champion was won by a local exhibitor, Maryanne Kipping with a Satin Ivory.
The local club holds shows in the Les Bell Pavilion in Kings Park every month with the next one being held on May 10.
The NCRC welcomes people interested in fancy rabbits and children with pets are always welcome.
