So many Rabbits!

We're awash in rabbits at the moment. Here they all are getting some fresh air and sunshine while we cleaned out their house ( the horse trailer) last weekend. They've all been seperated into age groups for growing out and ( since they're all weaned now) their moms are in their own cages hanging under the roof of the new rabbit barn we're building on the back of the horse shelter.

Yes, the one at the top was an escapee. He was easy to catch though and now he's back with his little group.

I love baby bunnies. I also love the rabbit pies cooked in the oven of the wood cookstove! No chemicals, preservatives or artificial colorings.

Actually they're all named Stew!

Indian Artifacts

Just look at these!

Brandy, our little Jack Russell, dug a hole in the yard just outside the back door. It was only a little hole big enough to get her nose in. Joshua for some reason bent down to look inside it and couldn't believe his eyes. There was this beautiful black flint Indian blade! It's about 2 1/4 inches long.

The other is made from white quartz. I found that one not long after we moved in here. It was just laying on top of the dirt by the stream.

It gives me goose bumps to think that Indians once hunted in my backyard!
