New Bunnies

Meet Anatolia. She was my birthday present. She is a broken sable French angora from Bama Angoras.  She's my fiesty one.

Here's a picture of Ana before I clipped her in case you missed it.

This is Ayasofya, a black English/French from Booger Holler Hairballs.

Aya is only a couple months old and very sweet.

And I picked this big guy up in Lexington.  He's probably a French/English cross, and his name is Apricot.  He's a very friendly, sweet bunny.  I love the fawn color.

He's feeling quite frisky since his haircut.  He had some big mats that probably didn't feel so nice.  He looks pretty silly though.

  1. I can't believe how long the hair on Alif is, well, was! That's amazing. They are really pretty bunnies, can't wait to see what you do with all that fluff!

  2. The idea of having a "small" fiber animal is so alluring. But my only experience with rabbits wasn't a good one (not a fiber animal, just a pet-store rabbit from my youth). The rabbit would bite people, and wanted to bolt if it was outside of an enclosure. Are angoras just more docile? Are they long-eared cats? I ask, because I have beaucoup experience with felines.

    I always see people posting pictures of their angoras just hanging out outside - are they like chickens in that they stay close to home in general?

  3. eidolons, All the angoras I've had have been nice, but some are nicer than others. None of them have been biters. I suggest getting a rabbit that has been handled a lot or a baby. I wouldn't really compare them to cats though. If you want to keep angoras to use their wool, they need to be kept in a wire cage or someplace where they will not get junk in the wool. I had one angora that I aloud to "free range" in our fenced yard. Her wool got too much dirt and twigs in it to be any good. Also, one of the kids accidentally left the gate open one day and the neighbors dog got in and that was the end of my rabbit.
    My rabbits are currently in large pens with concrete floors until my husband gets some hutches built. We have some wire fencing in a circle that can be moved around the yard so they spend most of the day out in the grass and clover.
