Last Oregon Kits

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.

Newbies

These are some really fresh babies. Hours old at best. They were a little “underbaked” as I thought of it. As in, they did not stay in the womb long enough. Just over a day of life helped them to perk right up and darken in color so you can better tell they are blues.

See? So much better.


So, I Went to a Rabbit Show

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.


Just, Can’t, Quite, Turn Over

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.
