Days of bunny dreams...

Yesterday (October 30, 2011) was one of those days that bring running, digging and binkys to the dreams of the Heartland rabbits. Clear, dry, crisp air and golden sunshine is almost as good as a carrot cocktail for the furred ones.

Alice surveys her domain.
Barney and Brett discuss dirt.
Barney, Frank and the 2 sassy sisters take in the air.
Pippin inspects the tunnel.
Quinn practices his fierce look.
The 'Gang of 4' contemplate escape and evasion.

One of the great treats of volunteering at Heartland is being able to watch the buns having a good time. Days like these are perfect vehicles for seeing happy rabbits. One of the more fun tasks that have to be done on good outside days is being playground referee and supervisor. For instance, the 'Gang of 4' engineered at least 5 or 6 escape tunnels and each was more carefully planned than the last. Lots of exercise for the buns and rounding up the culprits provided a good workout for the supervisor too.

Fabulous pics. The furry ones look like they are having fun. Alice looks BIG in this picture. (well big in body, she has always been big in spirit)

How absolutel wonderful to see the buns at play...it does the heart good, thanks so so much. Our four buns get outside as much as possible (except one whose healing up sore hocks right now) and there is nothing quite as lovely seeing a bun frolick and play in a wide open space.

Heartland does not advertise for anyone unless they get permission first.

The link for the "great review" is a breeding website. Not now, in the past or ever in the future do we encourage breeding. We are a rescue/sanctuary ONLY. Spay and neuter your companion animals please.....there would be much less need for rescues that way.

What a great outdoor space for the rabbits - It's not only spacious but also a fun and stimulating environment for them to play in!
