The rabbits are coming!! After six months of anticipation, it is finally time to go and pick up my Silver Fox rabbits. I'm getting two young bucks and two young does. I may even be lucky enough to come home with a blue one!

Perhaps now is a good time to talk a little about Silver Fox rabbits and why I chose them. They are a fairly rare, but recovering, heritage dual purpose breed. They are a large meaty rabbit, but also have beautiful fur reminiscent of the silver fox. They are born black (or blue) and their coat gradually gets silver hairs as they get older. They are supposed to have a calm temperament, but any who has ever been around animals knows there is a lot of variation within any particular breed. I think they are very beautiful and worth preserving. Having animals requires a lot of work and time. I make it a point to keep animals I enjoy.

Tomorrow, I'll be ready!
