New rabbits again


 This time I picked New Zealand rabbits. They aren't too common at the Amish auction so I had to wait a couple of hours for them to come up for bidding....with a baby goat on my lap. Luckily there was a nice lady sitting nearby to run for napkins at the concession stand! Wonder how many washings it takes to get baby goat poop out of blue jeans? Ha! I love it!
 The new rabbitt setup is coming along. We put it inside the dog kennel with the goat and I think its about as predator proof as possible. We still need to find a way to weather-proof it but for now it works with a strip of plastic sheeting over top as a rain guard.
 Since we have such a coyote problem, later today, DH is going to teach me how to shoot a shot gun. I've never held any kind of weapon before so this could be interesting.

  1. Good luck with your first shooting lesson, and remember, safety first! It's a good thing to learn, especially in the country

  3. Nice cage setup and rabbits. I'm still debating on what kind of rabbit to get when I finally get my rabbitry set up and running.
