Farm chores kinda suck during the winter… it’s cold, wet, windy… one would rather be inside in the warmth of a fire than outside doing farm chores. When you have a good weekend with warm weather in February, what is one to do? TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT!!! Double blessing… extra help around the farm!
The girls pictured above (Betty, Boop and Dotty) are happy to be in the outside hutch where they can stretch, run, and find some sun. Took advantage of this weekend and did some movement of the rabbits in all of the hutches. Before long we will have the rabbit colonies and they will have so much more room for activities. 🐰💙
The beautiful rabbit pictured above came to us due to an unfortunate event of her human family. (Photo bombed by Batman’s dog, Zip.) We were not looking to expand our rabbits during the winter, but she is a blessing. She came to us pregnant… so right away I set out to make sure she knew she was safe and we were going to take care of her. June is a sweetheart and has not been cross with me at all. She will be a mommy in the next few days as we are already seeing pulled fur and haystache.
June’s baby daddy is a gorgeous shades of grey rex rabbit. Benny’s coat is amazingly silky. He’s a great little dude and is enjoying his new digs. While they are in separate spaces now, they are right next to eachother. He has his man cave, but she can still nag him through the wire. A blessing to have available locations for these two at the Overman Farm. 🐰❤
A special blessing is having family come to help with the chores while Batman is away. It’s always nice to have help while washing buckets, feeding critters, and taking care of the farm house chores. I think my city mother earned her muck boots. (So out of the ordinary for her.)
Learn to spot the unexpected blessing and count them along the way. 🐰💛
