Greeting bunnies

The other day, I needed to brush my bunnies again.  When the adult coat grows into the bunny coat it is easy for the fiber to matt up so it is important that I keep brushing them.  Once the adult comes in completely, the coat maintenance gets a lot easier.  I believe it is easier with Satin Angoras than with other Angora breeds.  Anyway, if the weather cooperates I like to do it outside as the fibers do not get into my nose and eyes as much.  So here’s my first (now old skinny) sheep coming over and saying “Hi!” and getting a chin scritch.  First she greeted me, and then she greeted the bunny.

I thought it was an interesting contrast at the time- the old and the young.  So after the grooming the bunnies were placed in neutral territory to get acquainted.

And then the lambs decided to say “Hi!” too.

And this is some of the pretty fiber I got to admire.

A nice peaceful farm day.

    I love the nice peaceful days. If only they came a bit more frequently. The bunny has beautiful fur, and I can almost feel how soft it is.

    I have a small amount of satin angora in a beautiful fawn and I am saving it for something really special. I luv angora but those bunnies are a lot of work.

    • I have lots of Angora in various colors. I blend it with my Shetland wool and then spin it. Our Satin Angora bunnies aren’t much work once they get their adult coat in. I shear or pluck when they need it, probably every 3-4 months or so. And trim their nails then.
