I haven't posted much lately as I have been busy responding to bunny inquiries and building a rapport with several nice families who are interested in some of the Hot Cross Buns. Caramel went home with Ruth M. today. What a joy it was to see them together! We look forward to hearing how Caramel settles in. Pancake went home yesterday with Markie W. It was wonderful to finally meet her and place sweet Pancake in her arms. Best wishes to both ladies and their new little does!
Last week I had to have the other broken chocolate baby put down. There were some physical problems that were just beyond human intervention, and the difficult decision had to be made. We will miss that little guy.
I have been asked by a few people why we don't take outdoor photographs of our bunnies to post. The answer is very simple. Because we raise sheep, goats, and chickens, we don't want to risk a young bunny's health by exposing it to parasites that are in our grass and soil compliments of the livestock manure. We have dealt with coccidiosis, lung worms, and have seen some resistance to wormers in our flock. As such, we really do not want any of our buns being exposed to that particular variety of nastiness. In order for us to raise healthy bunnies, we need to keep them indoors.
Amy is the Big Bunny at the Hot Cross Buns Holland Lop Rabbitry. She manages the furry bunnies as well as her own brood of five kits, with the help of her incredibly patient husband of nineteen years. Hot Cross Hoppenings will be a journal of our adventures in Holland Lop life.
