A few weeks ago, I was heading outside and noticed that the animals were all congregated up by the chicken coop. Now this was a strange sight to see, so naturally I slipped on my boots and headed up there.
I got all the way up there and noticed that Prize the llama was very focused on something. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a flash of white zip by. I went over to where Prize was and didnt see anything out of the ordinary...but she was still totally fixated on something. I followed her gaze and it led me to under the coop.
Of course, I say....of course I have to get down on my hands and knees to see what shes looking at....so I do...
And lo and behold, look what I see!
He makes himself comfortable while he watches me try to figure out how to get him all the way over there under the coop.
Once I got a hold of him and snuggled him and loved on him for a long while...
After a conversation with the neighbors, the bunny was quickly identified. His name is Frank we were told. The rabbits are let out to free range pretty regularly and Frank gets picked on by the other male rabbit over there. The other rabbit is named Walter. This made me sad to hear. Not that his name is Walter, but that hes a rabbit bully. Not nice. We very hesitantly handed over Frank and headed back home.
Well, since then I have seen Frank a few times hopping around over there in the neighbors yard...along with a couple other bunnies whom I have not yet met. Frank is always far away from the other bunnies. Sigh.
A few days ago, K is coming home from the bus and she walks to the door....
So now, we have 4 llamas, 4 goats, 17 chickens, and one lop eared bunny named Frank.
This is what makes a farm go round.
