Ohio State Representatives

Bryan Clum - clumrabbitry@hotmail.com

Life long resident of Allen County Ohio, married to my wife Barb. we have 4 grown children who all participated in 4-h rabbit showing, being very competitive at our county fair. I have raised rabbits since about the age of 9, being self taught through trial and error and learning things through my kids 4-h meetings.

After my kids were all grown I decided to further my interest in rabbits,joining the ARBA and serving as a board member in the American Chinchilla club. I have a few Californians, and a lot of AMERICAN CHINCHILLAS!

Hi, I am Harry Dorrington and I am honored that Terry Fender would ask me to be a 2016 State Representative. Like many of you involved in our hobby of raising and showing rabbits, my interest began by walking through the rabbit barn at the Geauga County fair and finding a French Lop that was bigger than the cat! Next thing I knew he was coming home with me and the rest is history. Since that time I have raised and shown many breeds from the Brits to Thriantas and have shown in at least 18 different states and at many Conventions.

Over the years I have been involved with rabbits in many ways both at the shows and with 4-H programs. It has been my pleasure to have judged everything from fair projects to pocket pets and other mock judging activities to prepare our youth for the fairs. Generally if you see me at a show you will find my daughter Samantha not too far behind who attended her first Convention at the age of 4.

One of the nice things about our hobby is that we are dependent upon other people doing well too. Over the years I have learned a lot by listening and asking questions of many of the breeders and judges who are no longer with us. I have spoken both at judges conferences as well as back when our state club would hold "Rabbit Schools." To me each time a judge gives a critique of one of my rabbits I am back at rabbit school getting other's opinions on my rabbits program.

I am here to help. I don't have all the answers by any means but maybe I can point you to someone who can help you. Feel free to contact me with your concerns, ideas, and suggestions. Until then, keep your nest boxes full and I will look forward to seeing you at the shows!

Most already know me but for the ones that don’t let me introduce myself.

I have always raised and showed cavies as far back as I can remember. I actually found a membership card from 1985 for The Ohio Cavy Club, at which time I wasn’t even two years old. I have raised and shown all 13 breeds of cavies at one point in time. Currently I am raise and show Peruvians and Peruvian Satins.
I obtained my ARBA Cavy judging license in 2014. My all-time goal in the fancy was to eventually becoming a judge, I never really thought I could or would do it. Looking back now I don’t understand why I took so long in doing it!

I have served as President and Vice President for Ohio Cavy Club over the past 10 years. I am not currently serving on the board of the club because I wanted to concentrate on personal goals and events in my life. I have also served as the secretary for the cavies at OSRBA mini convention for the past 10 years I believe but not sure exactly since it has been so long.

In my personal life I also raise and show poultry. I serve as our Open Poultry Superintendent at Lorain County Fair. That might not seem like much but during fair week I get the honors of caring for 700 plus fowl all week.

Youth Advisory Council - Megan Snyder

Hello, my name is Megan Snyder. I currently raise Netherland Dwarfs. Breeding mainly Lilacs, Himalayans, Siamese Sables and Siamese Smoke Pearls. I also raise Blacks, Blues, and Ruby-Eyed-Whites. I am attempting to breed either Chocolate or Lilac Himalayans, as well as breed Siamese Smoke Pearls with good toenail color. I recently got a Californian for a future meat project. I hope to start training to be a Registrar by July, and I hope to eventually become an ARBA Judge. I am currently the 2015 Ohio State Rabbit Breeders Association Queen. Besides showing and raising rabbits, I love to read, travel to new places, and I love to learn new things.
