Norbert the Bunny

Reed finally got his Christmas present!  That's just how we roll, I guess, the delayed presents and all :)  He got a rabbit hutch and a stuffed bunny (to trade in for a real bunny of his choosing) for Christmas.  The hutch was from craigslist and needed a little repair, but it was so large, there was nowhere to work on it before Christmas without Reed seeing it.  Then the weather stayed cold and windy for quite a while so our motivation was delayed.

Finally, the warm Spring weather is creeping into the mountains and projects are starting up again!  B and I (okay, mostly B) fixed it up, added latches, legs, etc.  Reed chose a very nice red to paint it (and did nearly all the painting by himself).

We have been keeping an eye on craigslist for bunnies.  Reed couldn't decide between the very furry Angora breed or a small, dwarf breed.  Then we saw an ad for Jersey Wooly rabbits and knew they were the one!  It is a mix between French Angora and a Netherland Dwarf - perfect!  Unfortunately, this litter hasn't had much human contact, so it will take some patience on Reed's part, but he's a persistent kid, so I'm sure it will work out fine!

Meet Norbert, our new bunny friend:

Of course, even little ZB wants to get in on the bunny lovin', but Norbert's not quite ready for that, yet!
