Caution! Precious Photo! Thu, 05/25/06 1:24 PM (permalink)


I had to post this!
It is Ashe II's first photo shoot. Registered Dwarf Holland Lop.
Only the second Lavender/gray I have been able to get.

Is this not the personification of innocense & helplessness?

Big Streeeeeeeetcch here.







I love them!

    Not being a very good animal person, I have to ask? Is it a rabbit? If so, what do you do with them?

      Copper:

      Have you heard of this place: http://rabbitrescue.com/ ? I saw a piece about them on local TV so I'm pretty sure they are legit. And they had so many very cute bunnies. Personally, I wish they had a few more (the ones who made it impossible for me to grow nasturtiums in AZ), but that's another issue.

          Treat them just like chicken. Although the traditional French cut is only six pieces. Fried in a little olive oil w/ garlic onion,and bay leaf, add a bit of white wine to deglaze, then a bit of tomato paste w/ another dash of white wine and game stock. Simmer until tender and serve w/ egg noodles. Can also be done w/ a brown stock for a brown gravy but still serve w/ the noodles.

          The French serve the heads split so you can munch on the brains. Plenty of bread is needed for the gravy.

            So will that thing make a tasty treat at some point in the future?
            I've got a well house full of two week old chicks, some of which we'll be freezing sometime in the next couple months.
            Next week, maybe the week after I open the door and let them chase bugs and eat grass.

              OK
              I admit it
              I am a computer moron. How do I see the picture? I've clicked on everything I can find, and still no bunny.

                Yes, it is a two week old baby bunnie. GOOD CALL! I have 7 originals I purchased from a young lady VERY involved with Rabbit Shows (YES they exist, go ahead and google it). She also lived with an AH who abused her......I met her on a rabbit forum and learned she VOWED NOT to leave her abuser until she found homes for her Bunnies. She was only 55 miles away, so I drove there, paid her ( NOT FOR THE BUNNIES, BUT FOR GETAWAY MONEY IN MY EYES) and brought them all home (sucker for a wet nose of any kind). Then I had to build cages...my hands were cut to pieces but I promised her they would be safe. I have not heard from her since and pray she got out of her situation and is doing well.

                Hell, she could be in the Bahamas for all I know, but its the thought/intention that counts in my book.

                My originals have 2 and 3 paws. (You receive a paw for every championship you win.........or something like that), I do not show mine, but they have been shown by previous owner.

                I basically love mine, SD, thats what I do with them......and local kids and grandkids work on my farm (Camp Hell) in exchange for a cage we build together and a bunnie. Great first pet for a child, plus I getta lot of elbow grease outta them munchkins! Sometimes I sell them outright, although I dont advertise. Folks come to me.

                Yes they are all registered. Surprising isn't it? Some could sell for hundreds as Breeding Does or Bucks, I never knew this until I researched it.

                BT
                I am TOO involved with animal rescue...... and the plight of suffering animals troubles me deeply. More than I care to admit, hell....shouldn't I be worried about something MORE important in another's eyes? No time for rationale here. I figger chop off the head and get it over with, nothing deserves to suffer. And I admit I have done so. But thats my callous self.

                I have not dealt directly with that particular org. you mentioned (they stay local from my understanding) but, there is a big Bunnie outfit in nearby Fla.

                Its jess word of mouth around these parts that animals come here. I take in baby squirrels, bunnies, dogs, birds.....I have one bird who was put in a basement for 15 years and only saw humans when he/she was fed. And they wonder why he/she is an asshole and has plucked itself bald (NO CURE, for that BTW) That bird is NON-APPROACHABLE. I call it Iron-Maiden. She/he Bites, hollers and is generally a pain, but I figgered it the least I could do, considering. 15 years is not that long for a small conure (only 'bout half their life), but it was long enough for Iron Maiden to give up on humans.

                Sorto like a pet snake, iffen you only visit it to feed it......Wassit gonna do when you put yer hand in there? It gonna bite you! DUH!


                I have shaved dogs that had maggots coming out of their epidermis and other orifices from matted infected hotspots, actually saving their lives (the maggots) by removing the dead flesh. I'm pretty tuff, but those cases are hard, and no I'm no damn Vet. Just heartbroken when I see this kind of neglect, cos thass whut it is. (Don't worry Felix, NO PICS!

                Bout the size of a Cornish hen, ya little Stinkweed?????
                Hardy Har!

                While I understand that meat rabbits are the highest form of protein return for the space and food they require, I'm too attached to mine.
                However, in the event of a catastrophe, their ability to reproduce a lotta dang meat inna short amount of time means my loved ones would eat iffen the need be.

                BTW I don't sell babies to snake folkes, thats a need to be filled by ratz! [:P] In case someone is wondering.

                PS Does it taste like chicken? I have killed, skinned, cooked and partaken of squirrel, but I was pretty dang hungry. Thass been awhile back. It tasted like squirrel. FRIED squirrel with gravy.

                I got three pullets I let out today for the first time. The rooster has done nothing but run them off.......so they have sought sanctuary under the pic-a-nic table. Gee, you males can be soooooooooo picky, considering Rudy (Rooster) has only three at hens at present. You would think the "B" was grateful. Hoo-boy !

                angeltx
                Yes they are........DHL are my favorite breed of Wabbit, I have beautiful mini-rex also!

                  Good God, Copper, when you said the bunnies had two or three paws, I thought THEY were the ones who had been abused. Whew!

                  You do good work. You will be kindly looked upon in the great by and by....

                      I would have thought Michael Hoffman would have been the first to provide a recipe. I'll probably still choose him in the next "vittles" pool.

                        I'll just say that talking about cooking and eating rabbits in this thread, while probably inevitable given some of the people who post here, is mean and inappropriate. Copper clearly loves his (her?) critters and we should respect that.

                          Is there no room for humor on these boards? Give me a break. Copper is a good sport and she seems a heck of a lot brighter than other people posting here!

                            I'd have posted a few rabbit recipes, but Ol' Copper would probably skin me alive. Actually, I had to lift and carry four little cottontails the other day when I was mowing. I moved them to a depression just past where I mow.

                              I don't think the person who posted those adorable pictures to start the thread really would want to hear talk about butchering them. What's funny to others can be at the expense of some. I stick with what I said but will defer to Copper. If (s)he wants to talk about cooking the critters, far be it from me to object. But until she gives permission to take the thread in that direction, I'd suggest people wishing to do so start a thread of their own.

                                Coop, The only thing roosters are good for is the cooking pot. I love messing with chickens, but roosters are miserable beasts.
                                So really, do you raise those things for cooking? I would assume that is the only really practical application.

                                  What happened, did you run out of pictures of dead snakes?

                                  Just kiddin' Copper. Showed these pix to Mrs. Roadhouse, another bunny lover like yourself. She ooohed and aaawed in all the appropriate places.

                                    Man, I'm sure relieved that I was talked out of eating rabbit at St. John's!

                                    Now, for my sake, just don't post any adorable ox pictures.

                                      Good God, Copper, when you said the bunnies had two or three paws, I thought THEY were the ones who had been abused. Whew!


                                      Bwa-hahahahahhahahahahaha, TELL ME ABOUT IT!
                                      When the previous owner mentioned on the phone they were 2 and 3 paw wabbits, I said to myself, "WTF? Is this lunatic in the keychain Biz?"
                                      "Lucky" for me, it meant they were champions. (giggle)

                                      I would have thought Michael Hoffman would have been the first to provide a recipe. I'll probably still choose him in the next "vittles" pool.

                                      I think the handsome gent should publish a cookbook for the "Stone-Challenged" myself. Lets call it "Roadkill" Got one for over-ripe opposum MH?

                                      I'll just say that talking about cooking and eating rabbits in this thread, while probably inevitable given some of the people who post here, is mean and inappropriate. Copper clearly loves his (her?) critters and we should respect that.

                                      Dang it, BT!

                                      I'd have posted a few rabbit recipes, but Ol' Copper would probably skin me alive.

                                      I would lean towards a hide tanning. (snicker)

                                      Actually, I had to lift and carry four little cottontails the other day when I was mowing. I moved them to a depression just past where I mow.

                                      Coop, The only thing roosters are good for is the cooking pot. I love messing with chickens, but roosters are miserable beasts. While I agree roosters are ornery I doubt my buck rabbits could sire a baby chick. Thus the need.


                                      So really, do you raise those things for cooking? I would assume that is the only really practical application.

                                      Actually I have them for the reason I stated in an earlier post to this thread. Meat rabbits are much larger than mine...... which are more like pets than livestock. I gott'em cos I felt it was the thing to do, and have since fallen in love with their personality. Don't get me wrong, I adore predators (agressives)too, but game critters (timid) have their own unique quiet charm.

                                        Copper, I started selling French Lops at my pet store in Dallas back in the 70s. They sold for $50 and that was allot of money back then. As they became more prevelent the price droped. Quite a few years later I found a source for Holland Lops. They sold for $75 at first but when I sold my store in 1982 the price had droped to $50. I was the only pet store that sold rabbits year round. My customers loved their bunnies!

                                        Are you having to feed her from a bottle or did you get the mom?

                                        I was sure I could discover a cure for feather plucking parrots but.... the only thing I found that worked, but only sometimes, was to put them in a large flight sized cage with other birds and lots of branches to climb on. At least they seamed happier. Parrots are so smart that when abused I think they go insane, so sad! An interisting enviourment along with an anti psycotic drug like citalopram might work? They have come a long way with those kinds of drugs in recent years.

                                            No Papa, she is with her mommy, thank goodness. Feeding baby wildlife/domestics are very demanding as I am sure you know.

                                            the only thing I found that worked, but only sometimes, was to put them in a large flight sized cage with other birds and lots of branches to climb on. At least they seamed happier. Parrots are so smart that when abused I think they go insane, so sad!

                                            Iron Maiden's present "cage" is 7' tall, and 4'X4' in diameter. She has a large treetrunk in there and two internally housed parakeets that she seems to be able to relate to. By this I mean when I feed the Keets she is very possesive of them. So she has companionship.

                                            At times I truly regret her intelligence due to her ability to remember Horrible times in her life. I know it must seem silly that I am so involved with her......Hell, thats just me.

                                            Very sad that they are smart enough to go insane, yes I firmly agree. Six on one hand, half a dozen on the other.

                                            From your post, one would suppose "OX" refers to sex and not species?
                                            Artificial Insemination is an endeavor I vow to pursue when I am a grown-up. I promise.

                                                  I won't feed anything that I can't eat or dosen't work for me. I found rabbits are a bitch to raise. They eat their young come down with a host of diseases get the sniffles and are subject to extreem heat and are very skittish, not to mention the rare but occasional gay Buck. But those New Zelands @ about 4 to 5 lbs. are very tastey. Spark up the grill. Chow Jim
