NFRS 2018 NOVICE BREEDER OF THE YEAR. AWARDED STUD STATUS AUGUST 2018
We had Silver Fawn here a few years ago with Ouzles Cedric but lost the variety in 2017, after three or four generations.
Thanks to Ann Storey at Rivendell Stud, we now have Silver Fawn back again!
In June 2018 we adopted two bucks from Ann at the Rivendell Stud and Rivendell Red River has now gone on to produce a litter of Agouti and Silver Fawn babies for us.
I have kept all three of the silver fawn girls. Six Silver Fawn boys went out to pet homes.
Watch this space. Silver Fawn will be going strong here again very soon!!

Newsflash 7 Oct 2020
We hit fertility issues with the Silver Fawns.
I kept 3 does and 2 bucks from generation #3.
At 7 months I put the best of the 2 does in with Ouzles Lord Lucan, the designated SF Stud Buck and nothing happened.
After one month I put his brother, Ouzles Lion Face The Barber, in there too. And still nothing happened.
And another month passed. Three months. No pregnancies. Time for plan B.
Plan B was two Black does and to keep the female offspring to mate them back to bucks to get SF back in two generation's time.
Two months have now passed. No pregnancies.
I have no more suitable does to put to them.
The bucks are either gay or blowing blanks.
Such a shame! But it's time to draw a line under it.
Ouzles Stud Rattery is ceasing to breed Silver Fawn.
