Welcome Ghirardelli!

Meggie (9) has been quite the rabbit-lover for years. This year, a fuzzy bunny was the only thing on her birthday wish list.


So, two weeks ago, Ghirardelli, the chocolate Rex buck, joined our family. He was welcomed with more attention than he has ever desired. He is the softest thing you could imagine. Now Emelie and Teddy enjoy teasing Meg saying they'd like a pair of mittens out of Rex rabbit.


Now Jacob (5) want a female for his birthday so we can have lots of rabbit babies. We'll see about that one...


He's already been shown by his breeder at a national Rex show. Next year Meggie will show him for her rabbit project in 4-H.


  1. what a pretty rabbit! what a great gift! good luck with the bunny farm if that comes to pass - you'll fill that barn before you know it! we'll need to get together soon - the kids would love to play again and we love to visit - let me know how your summer is shaping up!

  2. So cute! Emma is asking for one now. Guess we will just have to come visit. ;)

  3. wow. beautiful rabbit. almost looks fake. how cool is that. I like Jake's thought on this, get a female so you can have lots of baby rabbits... very cute
