Catch up

Well there is a lot going on in the rabbiters life at the moment including lots of rabbits to be dealt to around Otago. In fact it seems to be the same story in many parts of New Zealand! Rabbits everywhere I go (And a few Wallabies around the place as well) plus all the rabbits in other areas people are telling me about.

Got the new longnet going the other day, so nice having a good setup again. It just makes life easy.

Wolf had pups, the father is Arthur who is now with another rabbiter. She had 3 but one was born dead which was a shame, two wee girls survived. I’m keeping one and the last I heard the other is going to a neighbour which is cool. They got a couple of spare ferrets off us not long ago so this pup will round out their rabbiting team nicely. Their kids are young and all over this rabbiting gig.

The one we are keeping has been named Dingo.

Got the rabbit netting manufacturers down next week so the yarn up with them will be interesting, hopefully we can get some major improvements happening which is sounding really good. Fencing being the very first step in a good control plan it will be nice to get a better product to put up.

Just got the knew trailer painted last weekend, purpose built as it was taking me two trips to get to jobs, and of course two more to get home. You get over that real fast!

And here’s a few random pics just because…..

    Hi Stephen

    We are finding lots of dead teenage sized rabbits around our place- virus perhaps? Is that happening anywhere else in Central?

    Cheers Kate

      Hi Kate
      Maybe, the only way to find out is to get them tested.
      The original virus only effected large rabbits but who knows how it has morfed.
