Hi!  My name is McKenna Mertens (age 9 from Wisconsin) and I've had Flemish Giants for about 4 years as pets.  This is my first year showing for 4-H.  I showed my white rabbit named Dash, at the 4-H Clark County Fair, and got Best in Show. In Showmanship, I got all 100 points in my age category.  Now we are traveling to other breeders to get more Flemish.   We are starting our own breeding program in our area of Wisconsin.

I would like to thank Dallis for all the information, Julia for teaching me Showmanship, Chris for teaching me more about Flemish, Christi for explaining so much to me and Doc Hall for teasing me so much at my first show.  A big thanks to everyone else for being so nice and especially my Mom and Dad for helping me so much.
