“The Fort Worth Rabbit Show was my first rabbit show experience and I fell completely in love with the entire process,” said Smith. “This experience was so special to me, not only because my rabbit placed 3rd in his first show, but also because I got the opportunity to show on my 18th birthday. It was a weekend full of joy and celebration, and I am so thankful to have been a part of it.”
