Frost had her babies! This is Lemons one and only litter so these babies are very special 🥹🥰❤️ Lemon was one of the rabbits put down after the dog attack. I'm so happy to have some of his babies to carry on his name ❤️

Frost gave me 5 beautiful little babies but unfortunately one is a peanut. Poor little guy will not survive and may be put down at some point so he doesn't suffer. But the other four are perfect and I love them all so much 🥰🥹❤️

And to honor my boy Lemon, all 4 of the surviving babies will have Lemon names 🥰❤️

HMR's Frosted Lemonade
HMR's Lemon Shark
HMR's Sour Lemons
HMR's Lemon Twist

The peanut will just be called peanut until he passes ❤️❤️🥺

Well mother nature sent me quite the birthday gift today... a lovely snow storm... glad I was able to move bunnies around yesterday to make sure everyone was ready and warm. But now I have to go out there and feed 😭 maybe I'll make my boyfriend do it instead while I stay warm and toasty.

Happy 27th birthday to me! 🤣👍😭

Well, Baby's babies are doing very well! We did lose one of the fosters from Flo's litter but it was the tiniest of the litter and I didn't have high hopes for the little guy. But the other 2 fosters are thriving with their three older foster siblings and Baby is making very sure everyone is full fed. We still have very big milk bellies on everyone and I think Fresh (the broken dilute) is finally starting to share the milk bar 🤣🤣👍 I can't wait for these cuties to start opening their eyes but I also promised they would move back outside once eyes are open so I'm hoping they take their time too 🥺🥹 I just love stealing one for a quick snuggle throughout the day 😩❤️ they sure are a jumpy bunch 🤣🤣 Puppy Chow is the most active and jumpy of the bunch. He/she is gonna be quite the handful 🤣🤣❤️ watch til the end to see Puppy Chow attempt to live up to their name lol

Uhhhhhh soooo, I didn't really think about it at first but with all the new babies, I just counted how many rabbits I currently have... 😶😐

I have 63 bunnies... 😅 and more on the way... oops 😂😅 so if anyone needs to know what to buy me for my birthday next Saturday, cages would be excellent 🤣🤣

01/06/2024

Names for Flo and Judge's litter! Obviously there is a possibility that not all 10 will survive but I have the names ready anyway :) The names won't be assigned to a specific baby til they are 2 weeks and I can start telling gender

The brokens:
HMR's Strawberry Fields
HMR's Syrup and Waffles
HMR's Mix My Medicine
HMR's Little Talks
HMR's Tasteful Vision

The Solids:
HMR's Foolish Pleasure
HMR's Sweet Delight
HMR's Perfect Alibi
HMR's Rest My Case
HMR's Legal Esteem

On a lighter note, I checked on Baby's litter and boy is momma taking her job very seriously 🤣🤣 these babies will definitely not be going hungry any time soon lol she also have several bald spots because despite being in the house, she needed to make absolutely sure her babies were thoroughly covered with fur to stay nice and toasty 🤣🤣🤣

01/04/2024

Well, unfortunately I lost Smokes entire litter. She didn't pull enough fur and the 4 babies froze 😞 I'm heartbroken as this was my most looked forward to litter. I'll be giving her a week or so and then rebreeding. I'll rebreed another doe as well so I have a foster if needed. I think I will start moving mommas into the garage a few days before they're due so it's not as cold. Then move them back out once babies are at least a week old. Gotta also find my bag of Olives hair (my dog, a Great Pyrenees who's life mission is to shed all of her fur all the time). I can give the does some of Olives hair to keep babies warm as needed

01/04/2024

Well unfortunately new mom Smoke felt 5 babies was too many. Found one half eaten this evening a couple hours ago. Hoping it was a one off thing. If she does it again I will be moving the rest in with Baby her her kits because she's the best momma and I know she'll take good care of them. This is Smokes first litter so hoping she figures it out ❤️❤️

01/03/2024

So I did double check Ruby's litter and unfortunately 4 of the 7 are peanuts and will not live past 1-2 weeks. I will let Ruby do her job and take care of the precious little beans until they die naturally. The other 3 are healthy and thriving so far! All three are brokens. The peanut gang are 3 solids and one broken

Guysssss!!!! A very special morning! Ruby and Smoke blessed me with some beautiful little babies!

Trianna's Chillin Like A Villain x Doyle's Ruby Tuesday gave me a litter of 7. Unfortunately there are a few that look like they may be peanuts so I will monitor them closely. Peanuts are babies that recieve 2 copies of the dwarf gene and they never survive past a week or 2.

Family Pride's Cranberry Bourbon x FM's Smoke N Mirrors gave me 5 perfect little blue babies 🥰❤️ this is the litter I was most looking forward to. Smoke is my best mini rex doe and Cranberry is my best buck. Smoke took 1st place Blue Senior Doe at national convention and had taken 1st/BOV in several shows. She also has a Best Opposite of Group. Cranberry took 2nd place lilac senior buck at national convention as well as at least one other 2nd place with me. He is a registeredgrand championwith his previous owner/breeder. He he will hit the show table again come March!

I will get pictures of the babies later this weekend when it's a wee bit warmer! Now I'm just waiting for Flo to pop out her babies! She has a HUGE belly but she's holding out on me til the last second lol

12/31/2023

Who wants to take a guess on who's gonna kindle first; Baby or Flo? 😂 both does have big bellies but they're holding out as long as they can. Baby was with a buck until the 9th so she could have a while and Flo was with a buck the 3rd-9th so it's a race to see who pops first lol if you feel like having fun you can also take a guess on total born and how many brokens vs solids in each litter 😂😂 both does are solids bred to different broken bucks

Flo is a Sable Chinchilla bred to a Broken Gold Tipped Steel, Judge

Baby is a Gold Tipped Steel bred to a Broken Opal, Banana Boat

Excited to see what colors we get!

I really need to make it a priority this coming week to take pictures of all my herd so I can post them and have them for reference lol

8 precious bundles 🥹❤️

These babies are sired by BC's Cuppa Joe and out of BC's Georgia on my Mind ❤️🥹🥰

Miscounted last night, we have 8 new little babies! Georgia is still being her normal grumpy self but I got a couple pictures this morning!

We have 5 otters (I think 1 blue and 4 black but I need them to grow their fur in a bit more lol)
2 whites and 1 self (black I think). I can't wait to watch them grow 🥹 the best part is they were born on what would have been my grandpa's birthday so I'm gonna name one in his honor ❤️❤️❤️

12/28/2023

Finally some good news to share! I have my first litter of (standard) Rex! Georgia and Joe gave me 7 beautiful babies 🥰❤️👏 2 are whites like their daddy and I'll check the color on the rest tomorrow when I have more light and Georgia has had time to settle. Stay tuned for pictures tomorrow too!

Well, Pinky held on as long as she could but she passed sometime in the night as well as her sister, HMR's Cinnamon Spice (Cinnamon). I did a necropsy and discovered severe intestinal blockage in both. Poor girls had to have been in so much pain 😞 I checked the remaining two sisters and unfortunately HMR's Hot N Spicy (Spicy) also has a severe impaction so she will be put out of her pain later this morning. HMR's Mad About Bagels seems to be okay so she will be monitored closely to be sure.

West's Jet Black (Brandi) had her babies sometime this morning but none of them made it. Brandi will also be put down today because her pain is so obviously bad. We have decided to try and rehab KW's Royal Fortune (Baby) because while her injuries were bad they weren't devastating and she's doing a LOT better than Brandi. She also only has 2 effected feet vs Brandi's all 4.

I will be checking the 2 remaining mini rex doelings and the 4 bucklings for impaction but I think they are all okay for now.

If you would like to help donate toward Baby's rehab care, I would really appreciate the help! I may end up having to take her to a vet which is more money than I have right now so any bit helps.

Well this has been just the worst Christmas already. The dog attack and now sick babies are dying and I don't know why or what to do 😞

Yesterday I lost a buckling, HMR'S Burnt Toast. This morning I lost a buckling, HMR's Silent Star (Toasts brother), and a doeling, HMR's Alpine Meadow. I am currently holding one of my mini lop doelings and the odds of her making it through the night are almost 0. HMR's Pink Elephants on Parade. She was gonna be one I grew out. She had a home here but I'm holding her for what will most likely be the last time. My heart is just so broken. I have three other mini lop doelings that are in rough shape that may not make it. My bucklings seem to be doing better than the does and the mini rex seem to be doing better than the mini lops. I just wish I knew what to do. Tuesday I will probably spend the day bleaching everything. Maybe move cages around. I don't know. I hope some babies stay strong enough to pull through ❤️

I hate asking but if anyone feels like contributing towards medicine and care supplies for all the sick and injured, my paypal is [email protected] and my venmo is
I have spent so much money that I don't have on supplies to help these guys. I just can't keep up with it 😞

Unfortunately a very tragic evening here at the farm. I discovered my rabbits had been attacked by the dogs we were watching for some friends and now 3 have to be put down.

PC's Lemon Merengue aka Lemon

West's Jet Black aka Brandi

Klein Widder's Royal Fortune aka Baby

A few others have minor injuries to their feet but the 3 above have had their feet completely broken and/or degloved to varying degrees. Lemon has already been dispatched and instead of going to waste, he will be used for meat and pelt, as was the purpose of the mini rex breed. He was bred to FM's Frosted Glass so heres hoping we have one litter from him in a month. Brandi and Baby have had their effected feet dowsed with Iodine and wrapped and are in a carrier for the night. We are hoping to keep them comfortable until they are able to deliver and nurse their upcoming litters before we mercy cull them. If they are suffering too much we will dispatch and attempt to cut the kits out and save as many as possible. Either way, both does have too severe of injuries to their feet to keep alive for long. They are both due on the 26th so fingers crossed they can safely deliver as pain free as possible. Once delivered and the kits have received colostrum from mom, we will foster the babies to other does between me and a friend and will put these girls out of their misery. Baby will be hard to let go since she was my first kit when I decided to breed again last year. I at least have 2 beautiful daughter from her still (and a friend has another of her daughters) and her dam and sire are still OK and with me. I could use a lot of prayers for peace of mind as I am struggling tonight 😞❤️

Not the best but tried sneaking a couple photos of the babies last night. Cocoa Puff is being the best momma ever and she's finally settling down and allowing me to say hi to her and the littles 🥰❤️ at least one of the solids is a chocolate for sure and I'm willing to bet there's a few broken chocolates in there. I did see one broken black at least too. I can't wait to watch them grow 🥹

12/16/2023

8! Cocoa Puff had 8 precious little babies 🥰 the runt was DOA unfortunately but the other 7 are alive and healthy ❤️ 5 brokens and 2 solids. I'll get pictures when they're a bit closer to a week old. Cocoa Puff is not very fond of my presence near her babies 😅😂 I'm just gonna let her settle in to mom life for a few days and give her space before messing with babies too much.
