Good-bye 2010


A few of the last pictures from 2010; an interesting year, one of varied stripes, a woody nose and somewhat piquant after taste depending on the education of one's palate.

Rabbits are now allowed at certain times into the greater space outside their really quite spacious pens. Sometimes they prefer to stay in their pens, seeing no difference between inside and outside. Tyler has found a favorite spot outside his pen next to the weapons basket.

Tyler demonstrates the correct placement of structure and bunny for a mid-winter DIY warming treatment. The whole body can be beneficially effected by the application of solar radiation to the tail.


Amelia demonstrates the same treatment without a structure.

I know people get upset when they read about bunny fights, but I don't think you'd like it if I was not completely forthcoming. Amelia took some skin off Sydney and we had to go to the vet. You can see where they shaved on her neck in this photo of the patient with her friend.

Harriet looks out into the the cold and damp, dreaming a little dream of spring.

See you in two oh double one.

I won't see a better photo essay about the Year's end. Delicious.

Mickey commends Tyler on his excellent "loaf" position.

Me, I'm all a-*squee* over the sun-kissed bunneh butts. :)

May 2011 bring peace and unity to the Gang of Four and blessings a-thousandfold to you and yours. :)

Great pictures, as always. I love Harriet dreaming. That might make a good print.

What an enjoyable way to see the old year out.

I think the buns here practice the tail-warming exercise, too.

I especially like Harriet's spring dreams photo

Got Dang Fighten Rabbits!

I see the bunny tail is used like the toes of a hummingbird. Somehow I just knew that.

I had no time to look up your San Juan friend who was no doubt deciding how to weather the weather too. Somehow I think the native islanders are better prepared than us interlopers who expected to be properly pampered.

I love the bunny butt warming exercise, and join Mickey on congratulating Tyler on his loaf position.

Happy New Year and may peace prevail between your bunnies in 2011

Bun friendships are as complicated as the rest of life. Animals really understand how to harness natural forces for their own good. Best Wishes for a cosmic 2011.

I'm going to try toasting my rump in the sunshine to see if it will stand in for the spring, which is a long way off here. Happy New Year to you and the buns.

That solar treatment through the tail is quite amazing!
Sydney and Sugie look so much alike. I hope her neck is healing ok. Tyler looks quite handsome near the weapons basket. Weapons???
Happy New Year my friend! Wishing everybun the best of everything and may all your wishes come true!

P-why thank you so much OXOXOXO
J-Tyler appreciates the compliment, especially since it comes from a master of the art.
CB-lucky to have photogenic subjects.
BG-and thanks, and well take it under advisement.
B-Warm the tail and you shall not fail, is an old bun adage.
RG-I'm sure you have observed tail warming in your warren. Sorry about your vacay, it seems to have not been a good time to travel for many....
CGP-well wishes gratefully received. Maybe the four will be more peaceful in the Year of the Rabbit....
FF-Indeed, I think the Tiger energy has been playing with the Four....
G-Human "tail" toasting is highly recommended, actually...
MM-just practice weapons, wooden swords, a couple of staffs (well they are the real thing), an unsharpened Tai Chi sword. I know a few weapons sets, you know, just in case.....Happy New Year to S and H.

Warm the tail, I'll have to try it.

Wishing the 4buns peace and harmony in the year of the rabbit(s).
