Here’s our newest farm addition, Jack. I believe she is a Cinnamon. You gotta love the unlikely story of the breed’s origin right here in the Pacific Northwest. Two kids from of Missoula MT bred a Chinchilla doe and a New Zealand buck in 1962. Their father didn’t want to keep any of the crossbred rabbits but they persuaded their father and over the next couple years and a long series of events, the breed was born. You can read more about it here.
We have our own persuading to do.
Do you think it would work if I told Matt I found her?
My sister’s neighbor apparently let his rabbits out in her neighborhood. At least two were hit in the road and this one ended up on a friend’s porch, dehydrated and scared but when the kids approached her she went right to them. That’s when they called me.
Jessie will take it!
I think I’ve turned into my mother. Love ya mom!
The friend who found it, feared her dog would eat this little rabbit for a snack.
Loud Kiddington had her named before she got here. Jack is gender neutral right?
I’ve made an arrangement with my growing up boy -I can’t believe he is almost five- because he wanted to call this pet his own. If he complains about feeding and watering her, he has to skip his goody snack. Of course I’ll feed the kid but no fruit snacks or other yummy treat. We’ll see how this goes. Do you kids have their own pets?
How much you wanna bet she is pregnant?
Oh well, no going back now.
Do you take in strays?
