It's with a very heavy heart that we have decided to say goodbye to our caprine friends. Way back in May, our neighbor informed us, rather abruptly, that they no longer appreciated our farming antics. In fact, they said, we were lowering property values in the neighborhood by being "trash farm people."
I took this hard. I know it was a bullying tactic.
The newest French litter born 11/18/14 had 7 healthy kits from first time momma, Pyrah. Pyrah is a broken lilac French angora rabbit and was bred to Pearl S. Buck, a Pearl. These three kits are all girls! The other 3 kits are broken coloring and all boys. Isn't that fascinating? I said 7 kits and that was only 6. Well we lost one at week 2, a tort.
We are hoping to keep these 3 girls as fiber producers, completeing our rabbitry for now. The verdict is still pending though. We need a few more weeks to see how their coats look before we decide.
Happy New Year!
"Hey honey, lets move the rabbits off that north facing wall."
"Okay," he replied
Removed the rabbits, started to move and.............. CRASH it fell apart. Well, thats...well damn!
So the afternoon of picking up, organizing, and setting things right before worse weather comes... ya didn't happen.
Here's some of what did.
