seeing as though i'm on a search for a husbun i was wondering if you guys could give me an idea of the longest journeys you've done with a rabbit just so i can kind of widen my search scale but not look to far away etc don't know if i'm bein silly but i thought i'd ask :D

I may be wrong, but i think there was a rabbit on RR that traveled from Scotland to England??

Although a shorter distance would probably be better :lol:

How well does your doe travel? Think that's probably the most important starting point.

We went an hour to Leicester with Hoops to meet Ant but I know people have done much longer journeys.

To be honest as long as she has hay i can pretty much do anything to her lol she's a sap! although i don't think i would take her too far! do you think it is vital to take winnie with me when i go and look at bunny's if i ever find one??? never done the whole bonding thing but so far winnie ha tried to make friends with a rat a cat and a dog so i don think she's gonna be fussy the tramp lol :lol:

When we go on vacation we travel 2 hours with rabbits and dog in the car.
Also Aroma came to me from almost the other side of the country:D

i would start looking at rescues closer to home first. if you have not done any bonding before it would probably be best to have a rescue who could give you some support

i did think that but the girl at the rescue near me said she would help even if i don't get a rabbit from them..... i think she's trying to help because she said in the last 3 months they've rarely had a boy in who's been suitable for re-homing or who isn't already bonded.

I took my 2 six week old wild bunnies from Wellingborough to Anglesey in Wales, they were both fine, and I collected new bunny Squirrel from Wellingborough to Nottingham.
