|Double Dutch Rabbitry
|Hi, we are Robert & Sarah Petersen (formly Sarah Cleavenger).
Sarah specializes in Black and Blue Dutch
and has been raising rabbits since March 1993. Robert
specializes in Black and Chocolate (with hopes for Blue and
Lilac) English Spots. He's had them before, but just got started
up in them again last year. The English Spots go under the
rabbitry name "Sporting Spots Rabbitry".
We are a 60 hole rabbitry, spread out through three buildings,
located in Seattle, Washington. However, we are currently
averaging around 20 Dutch. The Spots are still a work in
progress, which we only have 7 right now.
Sarah has had many breeds come through her rabbitry, such
as Netherland Dwarfs, Dutch, Harlequins, Tans, Mini Lops,
Rhinelanders, and Silver Martens. She has also had a
Checkered Giant, Britannia Petite, and Belgian Hare for a short
time to learn more about them. The Belgian Hare is still here, as
a pet. Dutch have always been her main focus, and has had
them since July 1994.
The main line she used to create her Dutch line is Lloyd
Gregg's “Trelawn”. She's also crossed in rabbits from Don &
Carol Johnston, Pete Nelsen, Jill Pfaff, and Rick Lehmann over
the years. Most of her rabbits go back to her original stock
which came from Donna Brak and Jan Coffelt’s lines when she
first started in the breed.
For the English Spots, we're working with rabbits from
Stephanie Bartlett and Becky Wick's lines.
Sarah became an ARBA Judge in November 2007. She's
