Grand Champion Ruskin's Remington
The first steel bred here by using 'Sup.Ch. Edam' and another import 'Steel'here'
He wasnt able to be shown as an under 5 month rabbit as he was already weighing 3lb1oz at 16 weeks old, but by the time his adult show carrer was ready to start, he has only gained 1 ounce and just before he died he was still only weighing 3lb7oz
(he is pictured here winning Best Lop and Best In Show at the 4* Lincolnshire Championship Show)
Spartacus had won 2 BIS and Best Lops before he came out of u/5mths classes
He was bred out of a REW buck and one of the original Steel Import Does - Steel'etto
he was given to Steph Chambers (Megan Stud) to help her with her Steels and from him Steph bred the Bradford Championship Show 2016

Uptons Pablo at Ruskin
This buck is everything, and then some, of what I have been looking for to try and give Ruskin a little of the 'something' that it has been lacking in the last year or so.
I remember seeing him as a baby and liking him. Then to my surprise, Jane took him to a show to sell to someone. She got him out the box, I sat him on the table and I said, "You're selling this over my dead body". He was back in the box quicker than you could have said his name.
From then on he has blossomed at Upton into this beautiful animal and now, he is to spend the rest of his days here with me and my rabble.
Jane Bramley has very sadly, given up rabbit breeding and showing after over 30 years in the fancy, and he was her parting gift to me.
THE MOST WONDEFUL GIFT I'VE EVER HAD
