Monday, Monday



Went out to feed and milk this morning and found one of the baby bunnies stuck. Flower had taken them out of the nest during the day because it was so hot. I didn't make my bedtime rounds last night as William made a surprise stop home for the night. We were busy grilling our supper so I was negligent on checking the animals. Flower had put them all back in the nest but this one had gotten its foot hung in the cage wire. When I found it, it was very cold and hardly breathing. I brought it in and ask William to keep it warm while I finished feeding. Afterward I came in and heated up a bottle of formula and once it got something warm in its tummy it was moving around everywhere. I kept it inside wrapped in a blanket till it warmed up outside. Now its back with its siblings and mom and doing well. While William was home we trimmed the goats hooves. Out of the 3 would you believe that Nitro was the easiest to trim! Guess it was his being a show goat and being use to the trimming. We took John Henry out of the chicken pen. He is running around the yard. He has been tearing up the hens with his spurs so am giving them a break. We also tilled up the neighbors garden for her and did a few other chores before William had to leave this afternoon. Still haven't gotten my tomato plants set out yet or the camper cleaned up. My to do list seems to have grown but I know things will get done. I am getting my Easter swap mailed tomorrow along with my give away. I had them both packaged to ship but didn't get a chance today to mail them. Now I am off to list some things on ebay and work on some soap orders. Have a wonderful Monday evening and lets not forget to count our blessings. Each of us have so much to be thankful for.

I am glad you were able to save, "le petit lapin". No matter how much you think things are under control with animals, they can go wrong so easily.

It is good the mother rabbit took it back after you handled it. She must be such a good mother, like yourself.

poor wee bunny! Good thing it had you to know just what to do. I am constantly amazed by the length of your to-do list, the chores to do, the animals to tend, the house you're decorating, soap making and swaps you do. You always seem to have a cheerful disposition about all of it, no complaining...where do you get the energy? I think I could learn a thing or two from you my friend!
XOXO

As a rabbit raiser I just wanted to let you know that rabbit mothers DO NOT move their babies, they crawl out of the nest on their own. Rabbits are not like cats and dogs that move their babies
