This little kit is out of the last litter to be born here in Oregon. I don’t even have any does bred right now. I have to wait until closer to the move to breed again now. This little kit is a tort, in case you were wondering.
We fit a lot of rabbits in the van. Only 5 of them were mine.
These were the 3 I took to show. We had a good weekend showing. Javier (the tort) even kept chasing his tail. It made me laugh. A LOT.
My friend Karyn brought her selection of clay “pigs” (aka cavies) and rabbits to the show. We had a lot of fun looking at all of her wares.
I kept playing with Shannon’s fuzzies. It was fun.
However, Dawn’s buck gave me a heart attack because he was sleeping so soundly I thought he was dead. He was NOT dead. I did have to poke him pretty hard to wake him up though. He was less happy about that.
I have some mini satins again. These are the shiny babies. I’ll show you what they look like at 2 weeks very soon. They are shiny and wiggly little things. Hard to hold on to when I’m trying to take a photograph.
Fast too. Did I mention they are fast? They are very fast. They wiggle and jiggle and try to escape me.
“I can see the ground. I think I want out.”
“Yes. Yes, I do want out. It’s a long way down though.”
“I’m going for it!”
This litter cracked me up one morning. They were so full from breakfast that they couldn’t manage to turn over for a few moments. I took the opportunity to snap some quick photos to share with you. In case I haven’t mentioned it before, rabbits nurse upside down, so these babies are full of milk.
I enjoy it so much when the does feed their litters in front of me. Most are too shy, but on occasion, I catch one in the act.
