Duncan. Our one and only Livestock

We got a French/English Angora mixed rabbit a few weeks ago. He's our first venture into livestock for the farm. He'll provide us with wool a few times a year that we'll sell on Etsy and possibly locally for a nice bit I hope. It all depends on the market.

Here he is. Duncan McCloud.

Awww, so fluffy and cute! It's hard to tell how big he actually is so here's a photo that shows him compared to a 32oz water bottle.

Yeah, he's huge. But most of it's 3-4" strands of the softest, fluffiest cloudy material I've ever felt. It's going to be funny seeing him shaved come spring. We're looking for a mate for him and will be building him a larger hutch more off the ground this weekend.

And just because he's so cute...

We might have more livestock news coming soon. Cross your fingers!

  1. Wow, he's adorable. And you're right. He will look naked without all that fluff!!!
