Our buns

I firmly believe things happen for a reason. So, when, shortly after the bunny population grew dramatically at our house, my father-in-law said he wanted them and I thought that'd be great. We couldn't keep 6 bunnies, but they were all so happy together, the thought of seperating them was very sad. His plan seemed perfect, so I only rehomed the baby boy bunny (and I hear he loves his family and they love him!), and kept the 3 baby girls, mom and dad so they could go live with him in New Mexico.

About 2 weeks ago I discovered that maybe my father-in-law's offer had been made too quickly, and that he was still going to take the bunnies, but he didn't really want to. I had asked that he still take them and keep them until we'd been to visit at least once, and that was fine. Until we went to Green Meadows Petting Farm. Our guide was Farmer Mavis, the owner. You can tell how much she loves all the animals there, just listening to her talk about them. As we entered her Small Animal House, I suddenly had a thought. So, I talked with Mavis, and we decided that our bunny family might really enjoy living at Green Meadows. We took them yesterday, and they seem to love it there! We miss them, but they get to live together as a family, and will get loads of attention and love.

So, all that to say, I am so glad my father-in-law said he'd home the buns - they got to stay together until we happened upon the perfect home for them! :-) And, for any Wisconsinites - when you make a trip to Green Meadows, give Honey, Binky, Lilly, Lucy and Opal some love from us!


  1. Hello! I was excited to find your blog! I will keep you in my prayers as you leave Wisconsin and as you head to Texas. The "family" is doing great!!! Today we all had fun asking our groups who they thought was the baby. They all laughed to think Binky is the dad!!! We will keep in contact!! God bless your fmily!!! Mavis

  2. Hi! I hope you are doing well! Check my blog--I have your bunnies on there again! Mavis

  3. Hi again! I just wanted to tell you that there is a very short but nicely written explanation about the donkey's cross at under mini donkeys. I wish that I could always share that story! Mavis


Thanks for letting me know you were here! :-)
