Disaster adverted!!

I woke up yesterday in a total anxiety panic that the rabbits weren’t getting any water. Scott hooked up this gravity fed water bucket that connects to all of their cages that they drink out of. We’re going on about day 10 of our freeze and each morning the lines are frozen but they thaw out by 8 or 9. But yesterday morning I woke up in a total panic that they wouldn’t keep going back to check when the lines thaw so I was afraid I was going to come out and find dead rabbits.

Thankfully they were all fine! The lines were frozen but would soon thaw out.

At the end of the day I still had a bit of an uneasy feeling so I went out to check if the water was flowing to all of the cages. Thank goodness I usually follow my gut feelings on things because only 1 of the 6 rabbits were getting water! Scott worked on trying to figure out why it wasn’t working but couldn’t figure it out. So we gave everyone water bottles on their cages and will have to take a look at it in the daylight and try to solve this mystery.

Spring has sprung!!

Ok I know it’s 105 degrees outside so it’s definitely not spring but I am happy to introduce our newest rabbit Spring.

She’s all clipped down to make summer more bearable for her. She is the product of Coal and Mrs E from the litter that was born on the first day of Spring.

The rabbits are also getting their very own barn!

It’s really starting to come along and hopefully will be finished soon!

Spring is here!

With the arrival of Spring on Wednesday we also received 8 precious baby bunnies!     Thank you Mrs. E for these little bundles of joy! 😀

One or two of our ducks started laying eggs a couple of weeks ago and we have finally collected our first dozen (it was difficult to reach because we kept eating them!) We’re back down to six after this mornings breakfast heheheh

A couple weeks ago we began the trenching in the field and now we finally have irrigation!  It’s so nice to be able to turn on a hose and be able to reach every flower bed instead of lugging pails of water across the field! Thanks dad for all of your help!!!

Scott filled in all of those trenches and you would hardly even know they were there.         (Even though he was home sick and should have been resting in bed!)

  We also got some great new additions to the farm!

Thanks Christina for the rabbit hutch and the wagon top!

The flowers are growing strong and beautiful!
