You are bidding on a BREEDING at the Perry show on November 16th with:

GC High Rock’s Starry Knight (Rabbit Not For Sale)

If you need to increase your silvering and/or prefer only black offspring, this is the buck that can help you with that. This one is my favorite so when you compare his show record to Astro Man’s (also being offered in the auction for a breeding) keep in mind that in most shows where Astro was in first place, Starry Knight was in second—in fact, they often flip flopped between first and second between judging tables. He was 4th of 13 senior bucks at the 2019 Silver Fox Nationals!
