My First Bunny!

Mom and I had a wonderful day together. We drove to Snohomish and I picked out a Satin Angora bunny to bring home and begin my angora fiber adventure.
These are the younger bunnies, the one that is hiding it face is mom's favorite one. Whenever we took the camera out it would hide it face, it was very funny. It is a good thing these guys were too small and the chocolate one not for sale, or else my mom would have taken it home too.

Here are more bunnies, they like the camera. They're too cute but only five weeks old.

Now for my bunny, his name is Mr. Bennet from Pride & Prejudice it is a great movie. My Mr. Bennet is ten weeks old. He is super friendly and he loves to be brushed.

Here I am brushing Mr. Bennet, he needs lots of brushing right now because his fur is all matted. When I get this all brushed out, I will have to brush him twice a week. The fur that comes out in the comb gets saved in a bag until I have enough to spin it.

Anna, your bunny is so sweet. The babies are so cute too. I enjoyed hearing about your new venture. I like the name you chose too.

Mr. Bennet is adorable. I was wondering how you would get the fur from him. That's interesting.

Oh he is beautiful! Anna - you make me want to have rabbits and I'm sure my husband would feel I had gone over the edge of making more work for him. They are lovely and the idea of being able to get useful yarn from a bunny is wonderful -something smoochie and useful!

Hi Anna, I came over from your Moms to see your bunny! He is beautiful..as long as you keep brushing him and baby oil his ears ( that is what I learned to do)..and sometimes you have to get the Vet to grind down their teeth..you should do great! Don't feed him any produce that has mold..oh you probably know all this stuff! Oh and watch him for fleas..oops I will shut up now. I loved all my bunnies :)

AC - I've heard a rumor you have puppies in your house - now I know you are terribly busy with the farm - but just a FEW puppy pictures would be sooooo very welcomed by your readership! How is the bunny settling in?
