It's been a while since I wrote anything.....Lari has been taking over the writing because Luise and I been really busy with breeding, potty training and exercising our babies. Summer is really hard work for us, we need keep our temperature at the rabbitry low, water bottles always frozen, Water fresh and Of course wake up extra early so the Bunnies can go outside and exercise.
We have three exercise pens for the adult rabbits they get 1-2 hours per day outside each day. That's very important to them and I just imagine what would be like to sit on a wire cage all day long, weeks,months, years..... I just couldn't bear the thought of doing that to any of my rabbits.
They truly have to Thrive not just survive around here!!!! We spoil our bunnies, we have hardwood hutches to each one which really limit my ability of having as many as we would like ,but what we got live really well!!! our hutches are spacious,48 inches long 26.5 inches wide and 28 Tall they can stand up and lay flat,stretch out, even jump. We are always on the look out for some new toys and fun things. During our trip to Washington to Pick up Matilda, Argo, Khleo and Apache we visited a feed store that we loved, Bothell Feed store nothing like here, you could buy just about anything for bunnies at a very reasonable price so of course Luise and I went overboard again and bought all types of toys and things for them, I'm Glad Carrie gaves us 10% discount, she is a loyal customer at the feed store and they give her and her clients 10% Phew!!!! I'm Glad!!!! But we love it, we begin all this because Luise wanted to Show and as it turn out I'm not sure if we ever will anymore, I take pride of my animals I will NEVER leave them in a barn for a week for a $2.00 prize and much less a ribbon, they are worth a lot more to me than that! We Love having them around and of course will continue to provide you with the same pleasure we have tame, clean, SMELL FREE bunnies, potty trained! Our Bunnies do not smell, again our bunnies do not smell ( I guess that's emphasized enough) if you visit our Rabbitry you will see, we slave day in and out to make sure they are always clean, litter boxes fresh and hutches without debris, but if you buy one and don't do the same....they are animals and their litter will stink if you don't clean.
When you come pick up your bunny I will tell you my secret about having a smell free bunny,..ahhhh I just tell you Now.....shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.."Clean Up" yep that's my secret!!!!! I clean up after my bunnies, I don't have trays underneath for a whole week of urine and poo smelling in my rabbitry, with this heat and flies I truly don't understand how anyone could do that! So there you have it, if you want your bunny to be SMELL FREE clean up after them, they will be clean just like mine.
I train my babies to use the litter box, they are born to mothers who use the litter box and the babies don't step in poo or urine, the only place they see waste is in their litter box, and they are smart little fellas, they learn quickly with Luise telling them that:
"if they want to be nice babies they have to use the litter box". On my trip to Washington I bought 4 new rabbits all excellent rabbits from a dear breeder, she does a great job and has a great name, her rabbits are indeed amazing if you are willing to pay up, but they were not potty trained and let me tell you something...Luise and I are working hard to teach them and its hard, again hard because my hutches are wood and it require constant watch and training, but they are doing much better and we will never give up. WE WILL NEVER GIVE UP, we had a lot of great opportunities for that, greedy breeders that discouraged us, sickness and death.....nahhhhh Nothing will take our bunnies from us and from you. We will continue to breed and place our bunnies in loving homes for many many years to come!
