    A lot depends on the rabbit. After many years, you tend to gather more bits & pieces that come in handy, but it may not be worth getting things in 'just in case' as you may never need them (eg Manuka...

    I wouldn't trust any rabbit with 2' / 60cm. Most rabbits won't bother to clear 3' / 90cm. Some need 4' / 120cm or higher to be certain.
