Ellie's babies are getting so big! 7 weeks old now!! They are so pretty! Not much to tell about them, except they are so precious, so cuddly, so FLUFFY! I have my favorites, can't wait to show them. Each one has their own strengths, I can look in the cage (they're in the house of course, have been since birth) and tell them apart, which I know sounds insane, but I've studied them and watched them so often I know their mannerisms and see how texture varies ever so slightly. They are dolls. Here come the pictures.
So much fluff and density for being only 7 weeks old!!! She is amazing!
A row of noses... so pink!
On to the babies... the nestboxes are pretty adorable too actually. At least to me, I guess I have a fascination with mouse looking, colored, furry animals! lol... But in reality, there are some beautiful colors and bunnies developing. Once again, there are a few that are just gorgeous... so here are some pictures of them!
Are they not cute? Just a little bit? Because I promise you, even at 1 week old they are soooo soft, so cuddly.... I just love baby bunnies. They are just too adorable. I know I've said that. But they just are!
So I occasionally have a Dutch litter that turns out really well, marking and body wise. Sometimes it can be months until I have one of these rare *keeper* litters.... but 3 months ago I had a really pretty litter. Of course, all 6 were bucks. If you know me, I can't hang on to bucks. I'm super picky. I have a standard of pretty much as close to perfection as you can get for my herdsires. Hornblower has been an awesome Dutch buck for me, but he is getting older, and the one thing I really wanted from him was a son to replace him. Elise, one of my older Dutch does, a great mom who has a record for having nice, well marked, healthy litters, has already produced a keeper doe that took a BOV leg at MO state convention. Does are awesome, but I really still wanted a buck. So, I thought I'd try one more time. Well.... I might have a buck. This little man looks almost one for one like his daddy. I really like his head and face. He is a nice buck. I have his full sister, she is 8 months old now, and I rarely keep siblings. I might make an exception. This little guy has a wonderful personality and I just have that feeling, like I had with his sister, that he might be something extra special. So for now, this little guy will be joining the show team, he'll be making his first debut at 4 1/2 months old.
Thanks for stopping by! Another update should be coming soon! Babies will be opening their eyes, Ellie's litter will just keep poofing, and show schedules are being planned. If you have any questions or thoughts, feel free to leave a comment! Blessings to you, hope you stop by again soon! ~Anna
