A Hopping Good Time

   You may have heard of raising heifers, goats and lambs for East Texas State Fair competition.

   But how about rabbits?

   Bunnies from more than 20 different breeds will compete in the Junior Rabbit Breeding contest Wednesday morning. The event takes place at the East Texas State Fair. Kids piled in with their rabbits Tuesday morning to get their champion rabbits ready to face competition.

   If you'd like to check it out, the event starts at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday near the stockyards.

   The rabbits will be judged on the quality of their fur coat, their teeth and their overall good breeding.
