 havent shared any in a while!  I take a lot but they turn out poor quality or take some time to modify before posting so.....

Anyway; a couple of Rumball and Jersey first. They are turning 6 and 5 this year!

I love this one. It shows of his big agouti-bun eyes.

And the Incomparable Jersey

 

Keeping foster bun Ainsley in check

More of Ainsley. He's the last of the 8 I fostered. He's 6 months old now.  He has a potential home soon! A family that had a bunny previously for 10 years. Sounds promising. : )

2 more fosters: Maple and Potamus. They are a joy to have! I took Maple in and a week later she delivered a litter. She is a small rabbit (3.5lbs) and her previous owners deliberately put her with their 2 bucks. One being a flemish giant.... Then they got rid of her. . Their loss. She is a sweetheart! 

I walked in when she was birthing. Potamus was the 1st born and only survivor. The 3 others were larger and stillborn. It was... not nice.

Here is Maple, the mama

Her feet turn inwards. I suppose she was born with this. It doesnt seem to effect her and I think its endearing. Her weight and coat is nice now. Pregnancy was not her friend.

This is POTAMUS.  (HipHop Potamus)  She was called Syrup for about a week but Potamus soon became her regular name. Her growth rate was astonishing! Pretty sure it was the flemish that is her father. She seems to have slowed the rate now but has these little spurts. She's 12weeks old today.  She's a rascal. Typical active young rabbit. Ive taken oodles of pics but wont add them here.  This is a fairly recent one.

This one is purely to demonstrate their size. Baby is catching up to Mama!

 

 

Two bunnies missing from this thread, Timbu and Jelly. I need to get some recent photos of them to share. It's on my To Do list. ; )

I WANNA BUN-NAP ALL OF THEM! They are so cute! Poor mama though. People can be cruel. I find the feet turned-in thing adorable. And her baby has really striking colors that I love. I wish I was in Australia, I would definitely pay you a visit with Bunjamin to pick out a buddy.

Potamus has mama's nose! How big do you think she will get?

I just love Rumball (He's like my Leo). I need a lop-eared!

That first pic of Rumball took me totally off guard! I forgot how cute he is! Love that first pic of Jersey, she's so lady-like and gorgeous. And what cuties all your fosters are! I know that I could never successfully foster any rabbit, let alone super cute ones like that. I wouldn't ever be able to let them go. Potamus is striking, love the colour.

Do you have prospective homes for Mama and Potamus?

Looking forward to pics of your others bunnies!

Maple will be fine once I bun-nap her. (Potamus is adorable, too.)
The first pix of Rumball is excellent. Not easy to get true color with eyes.
Why, oh why are there no pix of Jelly and Timbu? Pahleeeze???

They're all such gorgeous bunnies. I gasped at Rumball's beauty; that first pic is awesome. The ones of Potamus, too.

Squeee! ALL of those buns are SO CUTE! I can't decide who is cuter! I have always liked gray lops though!

I fostered a rabbit for the first time last summer and it was a little hard once he went to the shelter. Is it easier the second time? I may have to rescue another one this summer from the same camp.

Thanks All : )



Sorry for taking so long to answer questions!



@lwayne; i don't know how big Potamus will be. Maybe 9lbs? I wasn't the one who collected her Mum so I don't have the original owners number to enquire about the father.



@LPT; there were some prospective homes initially but no more. A lovely lady I've met who was interested in Maple decided now wasn;t the right time for a 2nd rabbit. She's just adopted a male bun a year since her former rabbit passed. It would have been a great home for Maple and she would probably have bonded with this ladys bun but timing is not good for her.

There was also someone interested in the baby but she's after a flemish (full size) so she lost interest also. They weren't going anywhere for minimus 8 weeks anyway so we hadn't put their availability out there too much.



Im also very attached. Especially with Maple because of the experience. She was VERY vocal and scared in that 1st week. She cowered and squawked. Then went into a nesting frenzy and had the babies 2 days later. I was right there and it was distressing and sad. One of the kits became stuck too so she was really in a situation. The next morning I saw her binky and the change in her was marked. She was so much more comfortable and less fearful. Now she seeks out the pets and seems so happy here. Then there is Potumus who Ive seen grow daily. Plus her being a baby is way easy to love. So I am considering them staying.



@ Mocha; Fostering....mmmm. Does it get easier the 2nd time? I wouldn't say easy but you learn to cope better I suppose. With the 8 lops, I've been able to meet some of the people they were going to. Meeting them and seeing the home certainly helps. But I've had lots of moments worrying over the ones I still had and even the ones adopted. And I've shed a few tears too!

I guess with the lops I knew they would get better attention then I could offer so their going was a tad easier. You can imagine once I had them separated into individual pens, it became a lot of work and time was limited to spend quality time with them.



If you do consider fostering in the future, I wonder if having a bonded pair would be easier? That way, when they go to a new home you know they have each other.



@ Pam, I know I know! I'm slack in not having put up pics of T&J. *ducks* I was wanting to get some out door ones as they photograph better. They actually havent spent much time outdoors since Ive had them. I put Tim in a pen this week and he seemed to enjoy it more. The first time I had him outside when he was younger, he was too scared. Jelly had time with me on the lawn too. He didn't appear scared at all. I sat with him and he just settled down in out winter sunshine.
