As a breeder, I appreciate the second email and am more likely to respond to it than to the first email. In this case, “Andrea”, has put thought into her email. She knows what she wants, and is polite & knowledgeable in her email.

I love it when folks put thought into their email, text, or private message.

Breeders love it when other people are interested in our rabbits, and want to ‘talk rabbit’. And we love it even more when those people are willing to learn 🙂 

So, next time you message a breeder…wow them!

Know someone who would enjoy this? Share the love!
