I had just feed this family of Netherland Dwarfs, mummy Phoenix was sitting on her
shelf the other 2 babies were in the nest box-and I do believe the baby in the bowl was saying to his family ” the silly cow (being me) has missed us” ~~nom nom~~.
One way of getting all the good bits.
Sunday’s breakfast – and the family are not being tricked today.
Mum & babies
Matching the right bunnies to the correct home can sometimes be tricky, long haired bunnies require that little bit more from their owners in terms of coat care and grooming.
They need to housed in the right size and style of hutch to help the new owners cope.
Lion Lop pair
It’s not a good idea for long haired rabbits to have Un-limited access to an outside run-these bunnies are best only put out on good dry days or exercised indoors. They are best homed in hutches raised completely off the ground or as house bunnies in indoor cages.
I have at the moment 3 bonded pairs of long haired bunnies waiting for that right home, these pairs the buck has already been neutered & is living happily with his companion.
Dwarf Fox pair
Are you the right home for these stunning bunnies? More info on them here
Great great Grand mother Agouti 10-36 showed her great great Grandson 13-48, just how to impress at the Medway show yesterday.
Winning her class, best of breed, best fancy and 2nd in show. Losing to a Black Mini Rex rabbit.
The young Lionhead buck was close on her heals -winning his class, 2nd under five fancy and third under five month in show. Not bad for his second show out.

Well off we went to the show yesterday-Sunday my only lie in day and we are up at 6pm-GREAT.
Bunnies to feed before we go and 11 rabbits to get ready and box for the show.
5 Lionheads, 2 Lion Lops, 3 Netherland Dwarfs and A Dwarf Fox. Judges were Maureen Embry on Fancy and Roger Lightfoot on the rest-was going to be interesting with the Lops.
So how did we do?
Dwarf Fox-“Rabbit” not placed in the adult pet-you know your on to a loser when the judge says “WHAT IS IT?”.
Lion Lops- Apollo and Savoy , mine were the only two entered. Both got 1st’s and Apollo took the CC.
Netherland Dwarfs: Smokey bandit won the class of 3 then got 3rd Best of Breed, R-kelly,
came 2nd (to the Best of breed winner) out of a class of 4. Harvey at his first show came first
and the cc getting 2nd u/5 Dwarf.
11-9 Cinnamon, 13-46 orange both won their classes and took the cc’s,
13-48 won his class and came 2nd u/5 fancy 3rd under 5 month in show.
11-44 Agouti came 2nd to 10-36-Agouti who won the class, took the cc, best of breed, best fancy and 2nd in Show.
A real family affair. 10-36 is the mother of both 11-9 and 11-44, 11-44 is the Grandmother of 13-48. Making poor old 10-36 a GREAT GREAT GRANDMOTHER.
Owl’s litter is now 12 weeks old. I’m keeping the little Blue eyed Black and White called “Rabbit” I’m really pleased with her- just wish the whole litter were like her in type. The REW buck, “Stig” is lacking in overall type and I still don’t like his type- I hate his narrow head and too longer ears, he does pose and is short in body-so just need to look at those points, till I manage to Bred a Buck I prefer. Honeypot (Agouti/white Fox) and Roo (red Fox) are due babies next week-both mated to little Sebastian Red Agouti Netherland Dwarf, breed out of Fox.
Rabbit has her first show tomorrow-at Medway towns-only going in the pet class but will get the breed seen. Wish her luck………………………………………….
Rupert our yard bunny-thinks he so helpful-I think he is just a pest.
Not only does he help himself to everything in sight- he then leaves hundreds of little presents on the back doorstep.
It can be like dicing with death when you come out of the house- avoiding the cannon ball sized poo’s and not treading or falling over him.-As he just won’t move. At least he has stopped chasing the dogs- poor Zeeba who is smaller than him is only just recovering.
