:lol::lol: twelve of mine have been with Janice in Twickenham for bonding and they are coming home this evening!!! Hopefully they will stay happily in their new foursomes after they get home!! In the time she has managed to bond three foursomes we have almost bonded a pair at home ourselves:lol::lol::oops:

If all goes well we will now have
3x foursomes
5x pairs

Instead of 10 pairs and two singles - which was getting to be really tricky juggling with all the time needed for cleaning and lawn sharing etc.

many thanks to the wonderful Janice - who has saved me a fortune in new rabbit runs:lol::lol:

Who's with who?


Pumpkin, Comfrey, Nutmeg, Milk Thistle (the medium sized browns and harlequins)

Medlar, Willow, Bean Flower, Robinia (three agoutis and an odd one out who is now head bun!!)

Bluebell, Mulberry,Carnation Lily, Dandelion (the biggies - all very very laid back!)

Pansy and Blackthorn (the little madam refused to play ball so they are still in a pair: Typical BARC bunny:lol::lol:)

Viola Rose and Mistletoe Snowgoose (probably outside spring, summer and autumn only as VR has on-going ear problems after her myxi 18months ago)

Blackberry and Thistle (outside summer only): Blackberry has brain damage and other buns have problems accepting him - may try him and Parsley at some time as Parsley very very laid back usually!! but Thistle is a little madam.

Parsley and Peaches, (Patio share: did try a foursome with Peapod and Gooseberry but there was a bit of an incident with some head humping :oops::oops: and as Parsley still has his plums we did not want to risk an accidental neuter:shock::shock:)

Peapod and Gooseberry (Patio share) (see above - but this is a new pairing that is going very well - two unneuetered males both of whom have rejected females bonds)

Bet you wish you hadn't asked:lol::lol::lol:

I'm trying to remember who is who from when I was there :? :lol:

But ,from your description of characters, they sound like they're all well matched with each other ,I hope they all stay happy once they are home.

The does are always the hardest. If it wasn't for Dexter i'd have bonded my two pairs in to a four by now. She is the smallest of the lot and by quite a bit but I know 100% she will tear the other two to shreds given the chance :roll: Jasper does not wear the fluffy pants in their relationship at all.

Well done on your happy quads :D

Ooooh suddenly all of Janice's facebook statuses make sense, I wondered whose bunnies she was bonding :lol::lol:

So glad to hear that all has gone well, fingers crossed they continue to behave when they're back home on familiar turf!

Whilst I will give most bondings within reason a go, there is a limit to what I am up for :shock:

They have been on the road for about an hour now, so hopefully well on the way home now.

Wow!!
This is amazing Parsnipbun - and will be so much less trouble for you.

Janice was very kindly going to bond our lot for us, but after the 10hr move on Saturday, they are only now starting to perk-up.
So for the moment they are side-by-side, and hopefully we will bond some time in the future.

well so far so good - only one bond has had a rocky road (the four multi-coloured ones one of whom has a bit of a food territorial thing). We have put them back in a small confined space to get them re-bonding! The others all seem fine!!
