Today was huge and the Bunnies now have almost 16 Sq. Ft per pen.

I have some portable chain link panels to wrap around these outside pens giving me a 12 by 12 dog or cat free enclosure and then i’ll be as comfortable As the Bunnies.

Wish i would have drempt up this integral gutter drain before doing the one inside, i like it way better.

So, my rabbits were asking if your resort was year around or was it just a summer resort. Also what recreational activities would be provided, as in do they need to bring their own skis in the winter should they choose to vacay then, or do you you supply that... and the girls want to know if there is a pool, and if so can you send pictures of the cabana boys. Please and thanks.

Yes, I have removed the internet from the bunny barn.

@animalmom 😘, Yes we’re an all season resort and sport amenities like flowing water thru all the cages year round, climate controlled barn interior set right around 55 for the comfort of our patrons. Our cuisine
includes Organic Modesto Milling pellets (imported from California!), un-sprayed locally grown Timothy hay and in season they are allowed they’re choice of Comfrey, 3 kinds of clover, green grass, Dandelion and Plantain on a daily basis; cut fresh by the on site caretaker (me).

we we’re thinking of offering winter time dog sled rides but soon realized how dizzy it would make the bunnies as the dogs would perpetually run in a circle trying to catch them. Then we thought about offering summer 4-wheeler tours but soon realized how many things want to eat your rabbit the closer you get to the north pole! So we settled on just a sedentary lifestyle with lots of human interaction. We do pipe in Pandora radio for them which they enjoy imensly.

My only requirement from them is that they poop a lot! Unfortunately this is a pretty exclusive club and you might say “ they have to be born into it”; all members do have a lifetime membership that is only terminated at their passing. Now of course that could be caused by something as simple as “I aint had me no Rosemary Rabbit for a bit”.

Thanks for the continued interest.😊

I want to be gone a few days this summer and needed a way to automate the rabbit waterer’s. This was the most labor intensive part of the chores. When i set this up it was winter and my system proved it self during that time.
Nothing’s freezing now so a full circulating system is not needed so i bought a good pressure regulator and re-plumbed the entire water system, upgrading some other things as i went.
1. Built a copper manifold and made a wall penetration.
2. Finished the copper work inside and hooked up the regulator.
3. Re-plumbed the line to include the upper tier this time and made a PVC manifold that will tie both the summer and the winter system to the line. The lower line with the plug is where the pump line will tie in later.

After a little messing around, i got the pressure where the bunnies like it and at this point i’m done watering the rabbits till it starts freezing in late October!
