About Us
  We are a small family rabbitry located in Draper, Utah. Owned and operated by Daniel Hatch and daughter Samantha. We have been raising Mini Rex since 2008 & Rex since 2012. And still have much to learn. We did step out of the picture in July 2010, but returned in January 2011. We have tried to purchase the best quality of stock and strive to improve on that. Samantha's main Focus is on (Mini Rex) in Blacks, Broken Blacks, Black Otter's & REW's she is also working on (Rex) in Black & White. I can't tell you how much it means for the both of us to do this together I think that Samantha is just in it for the road Trips. LOL...
 Our rabbit raising days started with a Black Standard Rex Doe, that Samantha received from a cousin of mine. Samantha wanted it to have babies, so I looked on KSL, a local classified ad site, and found a lady name Cindy Bennett and made arrangements to come and look at her rabbits. When Sam and I went over to look at a White Standard Rex Buck, Cindy told us about rabbit shows. (I had no idea). We went to our first show in the spring of 2007 and Samantha was hooked. Shortly after we started, her Standard Rex Buck DRAKE, that we purchased from Cindy, died. So we sat back and decided against getting another Standard Rex, since Samantha was only 5 years old and couldn't hardly pick them up, but loved the fur, we decided to purchase a couple Mini Rex. We had no idea what we were doing. We bought a Black Doe, a Red Doe, a Harlequin Buck and just made a mess of things. I'm glad that didn't last too long. I soon found out, you get what you pay for. And contacted Random Rex in Northern California. They sold us some fine animals, Randoms Chaos and Randoms Death Sentence. Both Black Otters. Well that is the beginning and we are nowhere near the end!
