I've seen a lot of rabbits at the farm lately. the older ones are pretty brave, leaping across the road in front of the dogs, here and there and everywhere. but the little ones aren't as fast, unfortunately.
babette, the small female dog, is an excellent hunter. she's fast and can run over 40 mph under the vineyard watering hoses and trellises. abu, babette's slightly larger half brother, isn't as fast. I found him with this baby rabbit though, at the end of our morning walk. it could be that babette gave her prize to abu, or that she found baby bunny and ran it straight to abu.
every stay at the farm is different and I see changes in the dogs as well as other creatures who live and visit depending on more factors than I would know how to see, determine or reason why. this visit will be remembered by bold hares and dusk skies filled with raptors. everyone is hungry. most especially the mosquitos, who couldn't be happier about my stay.
