Off to Jackson...

So I've been doing a lot of scouting for goods we need for our rabbits. Everything from cages to rabbits. So I found this lady on craigslist a few weeks ago and had been in contact with her about the rabbits and the cages she had up for sale. I should kick myself in the rump for not calling a day sooner because we missed out on all the rabbits. However we scored big time on the cages. She was nice enough to hold those cages for us until we could make it over there. On DH's first day off from work I called her and told her we were on our way. It's not like it was 5 minutes down the road. No, I had to find the cages two hours away over in Jackson, Ohio.
This is the water tower in Jackson, Ohio.
Thankfully, it was a beautiful day for a drive. We hopped in the truck and off we went. The scenery was most beautiful. We talked and talked trying to figure out how we was going to get all those cages home. We weren't sure the deminisons of the boxes that were built. As soon as we got in town we scoured to find a UHaul trailer just in case but, we came up empty handed. And to tell you the truth it was a blessing that we did. It just so happened that he built them in an arrangement that fit just perfect in the bed of our truck.

We stood around talking to the farmers like we had known them forever. They taught us a great deal about rabbits, goats, chickens and pot belly pigs while we were there. I hope that I can call her any time in the near future to pick her brain again when ever I need to. She told me to keep in touch and I'm sure that I will do just that. 

So anyhow we ended up getting 13 rabbit cages. Ten are 2x2's and three are 30 in. x 30 in. I can't wait to get them mostly full. I think now we have a total of 15 cages. It's time to get to filling them. So the next day DH tried to get Linny to breed Jinny. He did it two days in a row. I hope we will see some babies next month sometime.

13 cages gently used. Should do the trick for a while.
