Can I get a Please, please!

I stepped out of the shower blind as a..... Well I don't know what has vision compared to mine but, I couldn't see well enough to know what this was without my glasses. Once I took a closer look I laughed out loud. Javier knows that if he wants something from me he had better write me a note.

I'll have to remind him of his manners so next time I can get a please. :D

We'll give you all we've got.

Our little runt is dying. Glenn has gone to get some kit supplement milk and I'll be bringing the little Little in side to warm him.

It has only been just over an hour and the runt has died. I am a little sad and so is R R I think. She lunged at Glenn and I when we tried to remove the little runt. Now we know to just let R R do her thing because she is a great mother and she is very much aware of what is going on.

The joys of raising meat rabbits

Glenn started raising rabbits a month and a half ago. I was very against the thought of having my sweet husband butcher rabbits in our back yard but, I am very proud of him for being a strong provider. I am a meat eater and everyday that goes by I feel better about being apart of a family producing and tending to our own meat supply instead of paying someone else to do it. :)

Later I hope to blog about our family garden.
We have four does and one buck. Our Ruby Red (R R) had a litter of kits two days ago. Sadly one kit died. We have five kits doing great and one little runt who needs our assistance with feedings. Glenn calmed R R in his arms. I covered the little runt with the hair R R pulled from her body to warm her babies, then I found a nipple and help him/her to momma for his feeding.

Blogging on Blogger

So I have missed numerous chances to continue my first posts on this lovely thing we call Blogger and I am feeling a little lost or overwhelmed because of it. I feel like I don't know where to start and I don't want to forget anything. Blah Blah Blah.... Good ideas! You can start flowing anytime now;)
