The Hop Hops

Every morning and evening we have rabbits or as Tyler refers to them "Hop Hops." When we get out of bed and are trying to get a little bit more awake we go check for them. Sometimes it is still to early, so we watch for them during breakfast. I can ask Tyler to go check for them and he will run to the window and squeal with delight at the sight of them.

This morning we had 3 hop hops. They were really active too cleaning themselves and stretching out while eating clover. The third hop hop is down the bank. We have a fourth hop hop that sometimes comes around but he didn't join the party. As you can see they would love to enter our fenced in garden. We have beautiful lettuce, broccoli, tomatoes (3 varieties), cucumber, and peppers (3 varieties).

We put up a temporary fence to keep our little friends out so they don't nibble our growing garden. They are not shy at all. We walked one evening within 5 feet of one of the hop hops before he finally hopped off. Tyler probably thinks of them as pets at this point and regularly visits the window to tap and talk to them. They never budge and continue to eat the clover and play.

I don't have a problem with them at this point. Just as long as they stay out of my garden.
I will keep you posted.
