    Most of you know my big blue orpington rooster Mosby.

    I have a new addition to my little farm. He is the same color as Mosby and the girls. His name is Peter.

    Peter Rabbit.

    He is a german black giant crossed with an angora.

    This photo doesn't do justice to his color in any way. I will be processing his fiber as it grows. Woot! And he will hopefully sire me a entire herd of fiber rabbits. You do know they are not for meat don't you? [​IMG]

    Oh my! Send that rooster my way please! He's absolutely gorgeous! I bet he's a good roo to his ladies..

    I love the way the bunny's head is completely black.. Makes it look like he's wearing somebody else's clothes..

    Charlie - he is striking. That is what drew me to him.

    Katy - did you harvest the fiber?

    Kitty - he is a snuggle bunny!

    Thank you everyone. He is an amazing rabbit to look at. I am very pleased with him.
