Welcome to my Stud

Hi, my name is Gary Lees and I have been breeding English rabbits as a hobby since 2006 having previously kept them at various times over the years since 1968 when I was only ten years old. In the early nineties I showed as Kitwood Stud in partnership with my father Ken Lees. I left rabbits in 1994 due to working abroad and time being spent with my other hobby - racing pigeons. Dad continued to show as Kitwood Stud on his own winning many best in shows with torts and greys. He was runner up to the gold cup and the gold shield at the National English Rabbit Club young stock and adult stock shows in 2007 and deservedly achieved Best in Show at the 2008 adult stock show and Best in Show at the 2009 adult stock show winning the Gold Shield.  On starting in the hobby again I decided to show my favourite colour, chocolates, under the Firshill stud prefix.
Above is the best chocolate that I have bred, he won the Gold Cup at the National English Rabbit Club young stock show in 2009, only the fourth chocolate ever to do so. He won enough awards in his first year for me to register him as a champion:
