Misty: my 2 year old Buck! he is a Dwarf Lop. His colour is Frosted Pearl. Misty is a lovable attention seeker! he adores his nose rubbed and drooles when he is totally content! he is an overweight 7pounds! needs to shed a little weight, fatty!
Butterfly: my 1 year old doe! she is a Cashmere lop cross. i'm unsure at the moment what Fly's colour is classed as... i think it's broken orange. Fly is turning into that rabbit from monty python and the holy grail! she is quite nasty, she jumps out when i'm trying to feed her, i hope she calms down when she has her first kits like my old rabbit Billie. i'll be breeding in November, i have the nest box built ready :) Fly weighs a good 3pounds :)
Fly has settled down a fair amount, she's still a little hard to handle, and i dont trust her teeth, she's quite jumpy of me, she doesnt like to be in the same place as i am, she waits downstairs while i put her feed in upstairs and waits for me to close the door. Fly has turned out to be a really good mother, she kindled four kits on December the 24th, one sadly died a week later, it had quite a bad leg, i presume the cord had been tied round it. the other three grew into healthy kits, Fly raised two, the other one i gave to Bramble to raise with her one kit, she looked after Flys baby very well :)
Bramble: my 10 month old Dwarf Lop. she is jet black, apart from her paws which are a dusty grey colour, i think its just because of the fur, i dont think it changes her colour classification. *shrugs* mail me if you know differently :) i dont know a lot about Bramble yet, she seems to be like misty, quite calm and likes a cuddle. she hates being picked up and kicks bad, but i'll give her a few weeks to get settled in at her new home :) weighs a good 4 pound.
SCARE! Bramble was been seriously ill, she was suffering a gastro broblem that happens at weaning their bodies struggle to cope with the change from milk to solid food and the problem can kill them, she was put onto two types of medicine that i had to give her twice a day by syringe, i also had to pump this mush like food into her by syringe becasue she had stopped eating. after a week she came round and is now healthy and eating well. she doesnt need medicine anymore either! and she is still sweet natured. :)
Bramble has turned out to be a lovely bunny, she is really sweet and doesnt kick anymore! Brable Kindled for her first time to one kit on December the 24th the same time as Fly... a week or so afterwords, i gave Bram on of Fly's kits to raise, she took the kit in very well, and raised a very fat and healthy pair of kits. due to pure luck, Bram's kit and the kit she cared for both stayed togeather when they reached 8 weeks, a male and a female, they went to a little girl called Abigail and her brother Matthew. the male that Fly raised is now living next door being loved by two girls called Hannah and Chloe, and the final female? well, that one got called Annie, and is now part of the herd, she belongs to my little niece Abigail, who was given her adopted bunny paper on her first birthday in February.
Annie: This little bunny is lovely, and she was an absolute star when she met my niece, who thought that it was wonderful! Annie is more of an orange butterfly, she has more colour on her than Fly, who is more white with blobs of orange. i'm rather useless with all this colour classification lark so when i get some pics put up, you can decide for yourself :)
i bred Fly and Misty and Fly produced ONE kit on the 10th of October '03! he is very fat and healthy, he will go to a friend of mine and his name is Gizmo! i will add some photos soon!
Fly and bramble both were bred to Misty a day apart, both kindled on the 24th of December, Bram produced her little male (called Gizmo too) sometime after 8:30am, at 9:30pm Fly began to have her four kits, one of Flys females (the runt, called Snuffy) was given to Bram to raise, Flys other female (Annie) and the male (Fudge) were raised by Fly. Flys fourth kit, sex unknown died a week after being born.
I will be adding photos and descriptions of my pets and their offspring, this will be a lot of hard work for me and will take ages!
please check back to see how i'm doing now and then huh???
cheers for checkin' my page out!
