*Newsflash 9/12/13* I have an extensive ARBA Royalty/Registrar’s practice exam that I will give away free once we reach 100 likes on our new facebook page!  We’re more than halfway there, so like us and share the word and we will share the practice exam in appreciation! http://facebook.com/RabbitSmarties *

Announcement! If you are a youth member studying for the 2013 ARBA Convention, we are having an online group quiz/study night on every Sunday evening leading up to Convention. Dates are Sept 22, Oct 5, and Oct 13. Anyone is welcome. The place is http://rabbitsmarties.com/quizroom.html. Contact me if you have any questions.

Here’s a short quiz on the ARBA Standard of Perfection for those studying for ARBA judge’s tests, rabbit registrar’s licenses, and 4-H showmanship and quiz bowl or youth royalty competitions.   CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE PDF FILE

*Update! *  3/31/13.  If you downloaded an earlier version of this quiz, there is an error in the answer key.  The quiz was written from the 2005-2010 Standard of Perfection, which lists 3″ as the maximum ear length for Britannia Petites.  This is changed to 2 3/4 inches in the 2011 Standard.  The quiz has been updated to reflect the change.
