Our neighbor Brenda has lots of animals...you've seen them before in this blog. In the past I've bought eggs from her or we've traded for them, but this year Brenda said that if we take care of her animals while she goes on vacation we could just have the eggs all year ... we take about a dozen a week from her! Pretty nice deal and we still like to shower her with gifts in exchange (homemade granola, locally made bulk soap ends, knitted gifts, cross-stitch gifts, etc...). I still think we get the better end of the stick, but you can't argue with Brenda.
First off is the bunny coops. She raises them for eating.
I let Reeve and Kyle do all the work with the bunnies...bunnies are not my thing. Kyle has a gift with the bunnies. He's like the bunny tamer. He can take a squirmy little baby bunny and calm that bunny down until it's in a trance-like state...pretty darned amazing coming from a squirmy little kid like Kyle!
Here's Kyle getting the hay to fill hay slots on the bunny cages.
She loves Stella and follows me around. Stella gets a real kick out of it and squeals with laughter at this huge horse following us around.
