    Default Lone doe

    My lovely blue eyed white rabbit, Daisy is now on her own. Her buck and companion for many years, Frosty passed away this afternoon after a short illness.

    Daisy lives outside in a shed/aviary combination. She loves being outdoors.

    I have two indoor m/f pairs. Snowflake (Frosty's brother) and Dusty (from honeybunnies) and a younger pair, Loganberry and his doe, Moondust (also from honeybunnies).

    I am wondering if bonding Daisy to either of the pairs would be a good idea. Daisy is deaf and will be 10 in august. Loganberry wasnt easy to bond due to being quite feisty.

    Oh dear. Bonding is so complex!

    I think I would give it a try with either pair. I think it would be difficult to predict which of the two pairs would be more likely to give a positive result. Snowflake and Dusty bonded easily didn't they? If so, I would give them a try first I think.

    Yes, I agree bonding is complex!

    Well remembered re Snowflake and Dusty's bond! Yes Inam inclined to try them first as Daisy has lived with Snowflake in the past.

    Oh my. How will I manage this??! Maybe I will clean out the shed and put Logan and Moondust out there and bond the others in M and L's half of the pet room. Quite exciting!

    So I am almost ready to start the bonding. Loganberry and Moondust have now been moved out into the smaller shed and their space is free to set up a bonding pen.

    I have to take my dog to the vet on thursday so may wait til friday ...

    Worried that Dusty and Daisy will not get on.

    Wish me luck!
