It was a seasonably warm fall day on October 8th, 2015, as I anxiously awaited the arrival of our first two litters of Holland Lop kits. Both nest boxes were chocked full of fluffy hay pillows and carefully lined with soft shredded paper. I provided the moms (one first-timer and a seasoned pro) with cold filtered water, fresh timothy hay, a dish full of pellets sprinkled with a bit of raw oats, and garnished with just-snipped-from-the-garden parsley. Wait a minute, we're talking about rabbits, right? I KNOW, I went a hare overboard, but I was one nervous bunny-breeding-rookie.
Suddenly, just after lunch, my husband casually mentioned, "That white rabbit is sitting in the nest box." WHAT THE WHAT?! First of all, she is a broken chestnut (though now is not the time to split hairs), and secondly, she's in the nest box?! I grabbed my camera and reached Clementine just in time to catch her last kit being born:

Hook's Hollands is a small hobby rabbitry on our Ohio farm and is operated by me (Diane) with the help of my family. All of my bunnies are pampered pets whom I adore.
