Maybe one day I might pluck up the courage to train it. I have been brave and made it to leicester to pick up some gorgouse mice...........before :D

Yes I've done Leicester on the train a few times, its fine. The problem with getting to show shows is that often they are in villages, so you can get a train to the nearest town but then stuck, and i hate getting buses when you dont knwo where your going, how do you know when to get off??

I think the Enfield show is really easy to get to by train, I think its within walking distance of a station but I havent tried it myself.

Thats the problem, I am trying my best to keep to Rumpwhites, Blues and Blacks although I have to work so hard not to hunt down a hereford! and then after I had a line of herefords where would it lead. And in the end all of my lines would suffer because I wouldnt have enough time to focus on each variety. Its very tempting though!

well I go to most shows and I am happy to pick up mice for any forum member who can get to Leicester and I don't mind hanging on to them for a week or two whilst arrangements are made.I would prefer seller and buyer to sort the money out between themselves though.

Wow beautiful.
Still hoping for red rumpwhites but might be wiating a while.

Not far off having blue rumpwhites though only one slight set back of the does eating all of the bucks form the first litter but they have been generous enough to leave me with some reasonably well marked does carrying blue .

Totally off topic but since you mentioned different coloured rumpwhites I have just put my argente rumpwhite doe in with an argente buck, fingers crossed for some babies with a decent amount of white on. The doe resembles a fawn rumpwhite and is very striking, I don't know why I didn't think of it before :roll:

Argente Rumpwhites had crossed my mind. Im feeling inspried after having my hampange rumpwhites crop up, Im going to use them to increase champagne rumpwhite numbers and hopefully work on some dove rumpwhites and then dove tan rumpwhites (I love dove tans).

My dream of blue rumpwhites has encountered a set back, it seems that the rumpwhite does I used are carrying the respiritory disease which I had a problem with and have passed it to my beautiful blue buck (who luckily produced lots of great blue offspring before he got ill). I think the best thing is to cull the whole affected line back. Luckily I know which mice could be carrying the disease and can cull them out of the mousery, it unfortunatley means putting an end to a line of my rumpwhites which had good size and type for marked mice.
Anyway I have plenty of rumpwhite left to work with, just need to get some size into them! And the most important thing is to have healthy lines!
