Taro Takes a Nibble

At first, Taro had no interest in helping me select a winner of the draw. I picked him up and put him close to the area where the names had been scattered, and he gave me a quick thump and turned his tail to me. But the pretty colours must have caught his eye, because he was back shortly after.

And he didn't hesitate to make a selection. He took a nibble, then grabbed the paper and hopped off with it. But he did pose for a moment so I could get an official shot. I then stole the paper away and replaced it with a piece of apple. He was happy and I was happy.

Actually, it's quite funny. As I type this, he is ripping around the room like a baby goat. He gets these little bursts of energy and he twists and flies across the room, almost as though he has no control of his body for brief flashes of time. It comforts me to see this, because he is almost 12 years old (quite geriatric for a bunny) and doesn't run around as much as he used to. He must sense this happy post in the making.

Congratulations, Elizabeth! I will have a little bit of Kinfolk loveliness in the mail shortly for you. I hope you enjoy it. Many thanks to everyone who took part in my little draw. Taro and I wish you a very happy spring!

  3. Love it . . . our animals get those moments that I refer to as "they've got the wind up their bum". Congrats Elizabeth and way to go Taro.

  4. Awwwwwwwww. Taro. You are such a cutie-pie. Thank you for choosing me! I wish I could kiss you on your cute little nose.

    Thank you, Jaime!

  5. Lucky Elizabeth! Hey, I saw old issues of Kinfolk on Amazon. Just thought you might want to check them out to fill in your collection.

  6. Congrats Elizabeth! I know you will love the Kinfolk. It is sure a beautiful magazine. A 12 year old bunny? That is amazing!

  7. Taro's antics remind me of watching the new fawns that sometimes frequent our back field. It like they don't know what to do with themselves, they so full of life and energy. As always, a lovely post.
