Well, I now have a new addition to my little herd! We picked up Mrs. Bella last Monday from Hidden Habit Rabbitry, after what seemed years of waiting! (Just ask my family.... they had to endure my talking about nothing but her for 3 days straight!!!) Bella is a gorgeous doe. She is already bred to Comic's half brother, Air, a really nice buck. I haven't gotten any good pictures of her yet, but I'll post them when I do. Right now I just have her in a box while I wait for Dad to get some more cages built. I'm so excited about Bella! :-)

I do rabbit chores once a day, usually in the morning. They are very quick and easy... as well as fun! Every day they get a good handful of grass hay and some rabbit pellets and fresh water. Then I rotate oats and carrots every other day, so one day they get oats, the next carrots, etc. I also give them an apple branch or two to gnaw on, and they love them! Dolly especially likes them.. she just strips all the bark off them. :) I try to clean out their pens pretty often and I brush them once a week. They are so easy and fun! :) Here are some pictures of me brushing them down.
Comic getting groomed by me! :)
Dolly getting brushed. I use a flea brush first, and then I get my hands moist so that the fur will stick to them and run them up and down their coat. It works really well, and they seem to enjoy it. :)

This is a video I took of Comic grooming himself. Isn't he just adorable?!?!?!
One thing I like about Dwarf Hotots is that they require very minimal grooming. I just brush them once a week so they won't have excess hair and get hair balls when they groom themselves, which can result in more problems. They are so easy to care for!
