The Kewaunee County Rabbit Hopping chapter has purchased new mats for its star performers. Kim Gilson says that the group got its start just six years ago and has been an active participant in competitions, including the State Fair. Already, the organization is beginning to see wear and tear on its equipment. Until COVID-19, meetings were at least once a month, moving closer to every other week during the spring and summer competition season. All that jumping can be tough on the rabbits, says Gilson.
The chapter has been hugely successful with a plethora of awards, and some records, to its name already. Photos are available at DoorCountyDailyNews.com.
