Babies in several breeds...

We have some sweet babies in several breeds that are going to be ready to leave May 29. Some have deposits on them but we just had several mama's have babies yesterday and today so if you don't get your bunny this time it will be available shortly. We have available french lops, holland lops, english angoras, new zealands in several colors, and californians. We have been very busy taking care of all the new babies. Making sure the mama's feed them.

We have had a lot of happy comments from the babies that have left recently. The families just love them and are surprised at what great family pets they are. Someone wrote thanking us for the english angora - Merlin- they have had for a year already and what a sweetie he is. We do work very hard with the bunnies - more than people would imagine- so we really appreciate the nice comments. We even get up in the middle of the night to check on the mama's and the babies.

The unexpected generousity!!

Today a family came to see their french lop baby bunny that they have a deposit on. They couldn't believe how cute the french lop baby is and how pretty the color is. When they left they gave my daughter, Shauna, a box of cupcakes!! Now these cupcakes are the cupcakes of all cupcakes. Shauna and I were sharing the peanut butter cupcake and the chocolate one. Delicious! The unexpected generousity is greatly appreciated.

The bunnies are doing well. They love this nice weather we have been having. The babies are growing like weeds. 2 days ago we had some more babies born. So we have babies in dwarf hotots, french lop, holland lops, new zealands, californians, and english angoras.

Yesterday we had angora grooming afternoon! It is a festive time around here when we harvest the angora fiber. We had 2 families come over for the afternoon and help pull the angoras. We have some lovely fiber from the angoras. The one family that comes to help each time really helps us out grooming the bunnies so I give her some fiber. They have learned how as a homeschool family to take the raw fiber and spin it into something beautiful. The son and daugter both know how to knit and crochet.
On June 18th come out and support a family whose 2 year old daughter has cancer. They have a lot of medical bills so we are having a benefit for them. It will be lots of fun and you do not have to know the family in order to come. Everyone is invited. More information is on her website above.
