We decided it was time to add a space specifically for the rabbits as we were outgrowing the present room they are housed it. We were fortunate to find a reliable builder in Pro Com Builders of Dayton, Ohio and the work is now underway. This room will be attached to the dog grooming room in our kennel office. Call me a spoiled brat but I don't think I have what it takes to maintain a proper barn atmosphere (read: I HATE the cold, no running water, sweltering heat, flies, frozen crocks, etc. etc.) and in lieu of all those vacations that I never took over the years I get a room with all the amenities a rabbit lady could ask for. It will be an inconvenience for a few short weeks which may include a stoppage in dog grooming (oh darn) but it will be worth it in the end.
My new bathroom! Just kidding, I knew it was going to happen when they dropped this off for the workers. Never been so happy to see a Port-o-potty.
Day one included a jack hammer and a bobcat. Remember Timmy the toad who hangs out in the drainage ditch? Well, he disappeared several weeks ago but was found living in the plastic tube that was dug out (in the middle of the picture.) Sorry Timmy, we have eminent domain:(

Ever heard of one of those? Me either but we are pretty sure that this is a nest of them. The lawn care kid was trimming the bushes and accidentally chopped off the branch these guys were resting on. He gingerly put it back in the bush and all was well.
Here is a picture of one of them leaving the nest. John went out to check on them and got an earful from the parents. How very interesting to get a different type of bird!
