Well, everything’s going pretty well with the house purchase. We hope the sellers will be out of there before the beginning of November but we’ll see. In the meantime I took a trip to Maine, visited a county fair, and eventually ambled into someone’s angora bunny barn on the way home (oops!) I’d hoped to find Max a wife at the fair but it had neither Belgian Hares nor angoras which is why I went freelancing. For now Max remains a hapless bachelor but I did find some angoras!
I ended up with two little English angoras, a lilac girl and a black boy, and an unrelated English/French/German cross doe who is chocolate. Really I was looking for two chocolate girls but there was a lilac hiding in there and the little black male, the runt, had the craziest little sad/contemplative expression. I sort of melted. On the good hand he’s unrelated to the cross doe and who knows, maybe I will make my own herd of yarn balls if I decide this is the right direction for my hobby.
Right now they are settling down in a cage that must seem like a palace. I am debating whether the little black boy is a Valentino or an Elvis. His sister I will probably call Ruby. The cross doe I am thinking Emma. I meant to take a photo of her after I clipped the knots behind her ears but I sort of forgot. Will post her soon though!
