I have 3 new French angora bunnies. This is my first with with rabbits of any kind but I have spun the fibre and adore it.
I got 2 does and a buck and if I am comfortable with them and their care, than at the beginning of the year I will try my hand at breeding them.
Eve is a Blue French angora doe.
She is least nervous of all the rabbits around me, and she is absolutely huge. A very big girl.
I have to pluck her here in a few days as she is starting to blow her coat. I did some of it a few days ago to hold her till this weekend, but now have to finish her coat.
I also got Bridgett who is a Lilac French doe. She is a little nervous around me, but is starting to settle.
She also is starting to blow her coat and I will have to pluck her this weekend as well. Doing that should help her settle a bit more with me as it takes some time to do.
This is Fairbanks, the white French Buck. He has been used to breed a few times already to some other coloured does and he throws wild and wondrous colours. He has colour on both sides.
I have to do a bit of grooming on him as I see some tangels wanting to start and hopefully with that he will settle as he is the most scared of me of all 3 rabbits. He is the youngest as well at only 9 months old.
I can’t wait to start spinning their fibre and making lovely yarns. These are my new bunnies, what do you think of them?
