Today Kaydence Schudlich wares a crown thanks to a rabbit named “Mocha.” Rabbit
On June 28, Schudlich was crowned Oakland County Rabbit Princess thanks the 2-year-old English Lop rabbit that tips the scale just under 13 pounds.
“The rabbits that don’t bite and let you hold them do the best,” said Schudlich, a 10 year old, sixth grade student at Murphy Elementary student. “I’ve raised rabbits for five years and this is the first time I made princess.”
On June 6, Schudlich, a Hadley resident and third generation 4H participant will be one of hundreds showing livestock and participating in the annual Oakland County Fair, 12451 Andersonville Road, Davisburg.
Hamilton’s of Ortonville, 465 Mill St, Ortonville, will also be present at the fair.
“We’ve always been involved in the fair from the get go,” said Kris Harris of Hamilton’s. “We’re a proud supporter of the 4H kids. Hamilton’s is going to be at the fair in a tent selling all 4H supplies for the children.”
