Meet Petal.

She is an 8-week-old English Lop, but already as big as our 1-year-old Holland Lop.

We have learned so much about rabbits since we got Huckleberry last summer and one of the things that surprised us the most is how socially complex they are. Huckleberry has bonded with us very closely but during the school year I worry that he doesn't get enough interaction with us. So I decided that it'd be worth it to get a friend for him. 

Bonding them is a touchy process that is best to start after she is fixed, so they will have to stay separated for a while. But eventually, I hope they will become best of friends.

And, oh, just look at those ears!!! They hang like luxurious drapes, yet are as soft and delicate as flower petals.

She is so graceful and feminine with her long, slender body and soft coloring.

And so very, very sweet!
