A lot of 4-Hers raise and show calves, swine, sheep - those sorts of animals. And then there are those who like to raise and show animals of a different breed for the fair.
For Alexa Springer, one of those animals would be a New Zealand mix rabbit.
She got the rabbit from her 4-H leader and has been in love with it ever since.

"I really wanted a rabbit because my first rabbit passes away," said Alexa.
Her rabbit likes freeze-dried corn and vegetables and fresh one too.
Alexa has been in 4-H for two years and she says the rabbit is a year and half old.
Alexa also had a photography exhibit, tie blanket and horse coasters that are an alternate for state fair.
