I have a garden bunny she just goes in and out of her shed as she pleases and a house bunny who is boss and sleeps on the sofa ! My daughter wants guineas next month but I have never had them always had bunnys
Never had a bun, so cann't compare. Have had piggies for over 6 years now, boars and sows. Guinea pigs are lovely.
Next door had rabbits first. |they zoom around the garden and kick their fence. Gives us quite a jump. Then they took on a 2 very long haired guinea pigs dumped at the vets. My neighbour works at the vets, she is a lovely person .
Rabbits are cute to look at but in my experience a bit psycho!! Now have two gorgeous but nutty guinea pigs, they have more character , speak to you and have a range of expressions when they look at you! Love them to pieces!
Both! Have a house bun who I could not be without. He's our second house bun - he's wonderful and is starting to understand/obey some commands. He loves going to bed with my DD's and has a weird sock obsession (steals any that are left lying around). He does spend a lot of time relaxing, but then so do our pigs. I wouldn't be without them either, even though they are a lot messier than current bun, very noisy and bicker constantly. They are very useful lawnmowers and composters and exceedingly funny to watch.
After our previous rabbit died, we weren't going to get another. We'd promised our DD's they could have pigs when we moved house and initially we did just get the pigs. A month later everyone else came home from school/work to find current bun installed in the kitchen - turns out I couldn't live without a rabbit - none of the family were surprised.
Fernie b Love it we had one bunny were not getting another untill she picked me in an adoption center when we went to look at pigs she is now my house bunny and lovely even though I was told she was to nasty to re home she isn't just needed some love
My DD helped with the school bunnies but said they weren't as nice as the guineas. Only two were suitable for handling by children (they always had an adult to supervise) .They had to 'corall' the rabbits into the run while they cleaned the cage out then coax them back. My DD didn't call them bitey little feckers but I'm sure that's what she meant
I should have learnt from my first two but nooooooo....I thought that the escaping, causing the neighbor to shout at my mum and me because they had eaten his veg garden, the hating being help, refusing to do anything they were asked, and digging out of their run was just them
The next two were worse
I actually very very nearly went for a netherland dwarf before the pigs - thank the lord I didn't fall for the ears!
70 DD1 went through a Watership Down phase. She read the book. We're got the original film on video. The box set series on 14 DVDs!! Slighty different ending. And the ornaments spin off from the tv shoe.
I've been rather out spoken on another thread about designer wallpaper for a 2yo. It reminds DD1 a rabbits spirit cann't remember which one she said following the Black Rabbit of Inrha (sp?). DD2 just doesn't like the colour choices she's not that deep thinking. IME children have nightmares over the strangest things. <gets off soap box>.
Actually really fancy a Watership Down now. We have a free day on friday .
