Hare Raising Events

I'm feeling punnerific today.

We've lost three of Jasmine's babies. Don't have any idea why they passed away, it's not from lack of care from Jasmine.

Speaking of- the silly girl finally, on Day 4 of their lives, pulled fur. I think she's had such a rough time with her other litter attempts that she didn't want to go through the heartache of pulling fur for a dead litter again. Bunnies are funny sometimes.

She's being a very nice mother at this point- not eating or soiling the hay in the box, all the babies are fat and happy- even her jersey wooly foster baby is a porker! Not sure what I'm going to do as far as that goes- the fostering will work while they are in the box, but I worry about when they get older. Wooly babies are considerably smaller than a young hare. I guess I should just be happy it's getting fed and quit worrying so much!

Oh Keep, I'm so sorry! Loosing kits is never easy, especially when you've waited so long. HUGS to you!
