Yesterday I mowed the pasture. The animals had been on it for a while and had eaten down a good bit except for the tall seed heads which are too tough to eat. Mowing keeps everything nice and even, and keeps the grasses growing. Plus, it helps control weeds as well.
Oh yeah, and it looks pretty. :-)
I was zooming about on the mower when something caught my eye!
It was this little guy and about 4 of his siblings.
After I mowed carefully, I went back to make sure I didn't accidently get one before I saw them out there. This little one was fine, but he was so still I was able to pick him up. I just love baby bunnies, and in the spring our yard and pasture is like bunny central!
I love their ears...
And how cute are these feet?
The pic below looks like I'm squeezing him, but I swear I'm not.
Then I put him right back where I found him and left so he and his siblings could re-convene in the nest. I'm sure he went back and told them all the story..."You'll never believe what happened to me!"
