Nostalgic Rabbits

I am so happy to have a rabbit around again.

Rabbits and I go way back.
I had them when I was a kid.
I had them when I was in my 20's.
I had them when I was married.
I had them when I was divorced.
I had them when I lived in the city (Albuquerque)
because the lab where I worked used them for testing
and I asked to take a couple home afterwards.

It just feels like I have always had rabbits.

The girls showed them in 4H for many, many years.
Way back when there were just film cameras.
I found these on my computer
 from the last year we lived in Wyoming
and thought I would share.








 Of course we didn't stop with showing rabbits.







 Ah, the good old days.


Hoppy Friday everyone : 0 )

The bunnies are adorable but not as cute as your girls. This was so sweet.

Your photos take me back to Calf Club Days in the 1940's and '50's. I had a pet rooster who had a harness and towed a very small cart with a doll in it.Love the bunnies, I'm so sure you enjoy them all.Cheers from Jean

Those old pictures are great, I would never have been able to figure out how to get them on the computer.

It is interesting to see that you had larger goats in the past but now have little Nigerians.

Looks like fun.

I love all your pictures, but most especially the last one where the goat has a face plant in the bucket of grain while being milked. Priceless!

Your animals are beautiful, and so are your daughters. Those are wonderful memories.
