In February we bought some rabbits, one doe with two kittens, who met an unfortunate end due to mink attack, and two bucks, one of whom turned out to be a doe. This girl who we have called Snowdrop had six kittens, four which died, possible killed by the other rabbit who was in with her and was in fact her brother.
As soon as we realised that these two rabbits were in fact male and female they were separated, leaving Snowdrop with her two remaining kittens, they have grown well and are now nine weeks old. We also have another doe, Daisy, she has six kittens, now six weeks old. All eight kitten are pure white, just like their mums.

We never used to lock our house when we went out, in fact the last time we felt we needed to do so we were still living in the UK, over twenty five years ago, but that changed when we found that on a couple of occasions visitors had called, found us out but still entered our house, once even leaving a note. To us this is not acceptable behaviour however well you might know people. Since then we have started to lock up. It now seems that we will also have to padlock the gates to stop more unwanted animals being dumped on us, and I'm guessing that we will never know where they came from.
We have now booked our piglets, two Tamworths, or as they should correctly be called, Irish Rooting pigs, we had always thought that this breed originated in the UK but apparently they are an Irish breed. All we need now is the visit from the man from the Dept. and our herd number.
