it's been ages...

The rabbits are thriving at Blessed Acre! The new barn got its back wall and door out into the pasture today - but these photos are of the front and inside. More photos later!

One of my June 1st pullets started laying (I think...). And we bred 6 of our rabbits today - it's both a full moon and the cross-quarter day - Samhain - between the equinox and the solstice. I'm not sure what, if any, significance that has, but it sounded like it might be important.

We've added a new breed of rabbit here - Thrianta - they're gorgeous Irish Setter colored rabbits. Small - max of 6 pounds - but they're the same color as our Golden Retriever. I couldn't resist!

There are 79 rabbits on site at present, with 13 does bred, due between November 3rd and November 23rd. We've been privileged to set up breeders with some gorgeous American Blues and Cinnamons lately, and Californians over the summer. These are gorgeous rabbits... we're very fortunate. We have high hopes for our three Creme d'Argent does, all bred to our new buck, Custard.
