"It is with deep regret that we must inform you of the canceling of the Pasco Fair Rabbit Show. There has been a case of RHDv2 (Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease) found in Lake County, Florida. ARBA has called for the canceling of all shows within a 250-mile radius of the case. Although we are not ARBA sanctioned, we do follow ARBA guidelines. This was a very difficult decision, as I more than anyone, want the kids to be able to show. I also do not want a break out in our barn, causing fatalities. I feel this is in the best interest in the safety of the animals. I appreciate your understanding in this matter. We will be back better than ever next year!"
