Elyse Ferchaud, far right, and her mother, Lorena Ferchaud, center, of Rough and Ready, recently won “Best of Breed” for their American rabbit at the 92nd Annual American Rabbit Breeders Association’s National Convention in Portland Oregon. The American rabbit is one of the 15 endangered heritage breeds of rabbits, currently the fourth rarest breed in the United States with a breeding population of no more than 400 animals. The National Convention hosted over 15,000 rabbits from all around the country and abroad.

The Ferchaud mother-daughter duo also won “Best of Breed,” for their American rabbits last year in Fort Worth, Texas, and have won “Best of Breed” seven times in the past 11 years for their Rhinelander rabbits.
