GC Lake Country's Atlas
Welcome to the site for Lake Country Mini Rex and Mini Satins. I am located in central Minnesota. I currently raise Mini Rex in broken, red, chocolate, and white. Also Mini Satins are now here in the white variety. Please check out my other pages to view my stock. I raise rabbits for the purpose of showing, but can sometimes have pet rabbits available to approved homes. Consider a Lake Country rabbit if you are searching for that next 4-H project, breeding animal, or show animal. Lake Country rabbits have been Nationally competitive with top ten placements and a 1st place. I am a licensed registrar (contact me for your registration needs) , member of the American Rabbit Breeders Association, the National Mini Rex Rabbit Club, and the American Satin Rabbit Breeders Associaton. I also do judging for 4-H and FFA. Lake Country Mini Rex is registered rabbitry #A290. Please email me with any questions or comments!
