    Lovely pics Yes please, keep posting pics of them.

    I think you've made the right choice re delaying the bonding for a bit. However, it does look very calm and positive with them together, so I think you have some cause for optimism.

    Exciting news regarding the possibility of a new doe for them Keep up updated

    I will continue to put updates on here if people dont mind of the boys playdates - so lovely to see them snugged up with one another

    Despite the carnage of everything all over the place, this is my boys led out ignoring one another

    These are amazing photos, I love them

    Your 'whispering boys' makes me remember all the times that rabbits run up to each other and gently touch noses. I am convinced that some special exchange of info or energy takes place at such moments

    And good luck with the Doe!

    Aww MightyMax thats lovely to think of special info

    They have been out again this evening whilst we watched TV - they were obviously attended all the time and were not fussed by each other. I am so keeping up with the play dates.

    The doe............. she might be a beautiful pale lop aged 4years ................. fingers, toes and ears crossed

    Today's playdate went really well with Dillon humping (very briefly) Cuthbert, and Cuthbert staying still for a moment or two before bumbling off. The boys are nose bumping, eating together and lying near one another easily. Still not letting them be alone though.

    Friday - stressful day as we had a trip to the vets - both boys went in one carrier with sprigs of rosemary (someone said it helped calm bunnies down). Both checked at the vets then straight home for playdate whilst I cleaned out the litter trays etc. Just a little humping from Dillon on Cuthbert but eating together and both chasing the sweeping brush as I tidied around the runs - do all rabbits hate sweeping brushes?

    The boys are to get a wife in January - she is from northwest rabbit rescue. I was so inspired by your trio and the rescue stories

    I have used a Rescue Remedy - you can put a drop on the back of their neck, or put it into their water or spray it on herbs etc.

    I have used it on myself in the direst of medical emergencies and can vouch for it's effectiveness
