Too Late for Mother’s Bunday?

Reader Brandi M. sent this in yesterday: “My girlfriend’s family has raised show bunnies for over 25 years. I started helping out when we began dating. The big bunny below is 8-month-old Picotee. She was my favorite bunny from the first litter I helped raise. With her is one of her three beautiful one-month-old babies. She and the baby below are broken Siamese Mini Satins. I thought it made for a cute Mother’s Day picture, so I did a little photo shoot of them yesterday. Her babies are so special to me — I think of them as my grandbunnies.”

    Beautiful buns! That baby’s outlined ears are so lovely!

      Thanks! The mom had the same ears when she was a baby, so that is how she got the name Picotee. The baby’s markings will end up looking a lot like her mom’s when she grows up. I tried to attach a picture of her mom when she was a baby to this comment, but it said the file was too big.

          I just e-mailed you the pictures. Sorry, I didn’t see this comment until now! One of the pictures shows you just how early bunnies learn the important skill of the look of disapproval! πŸ™‚

      Yes, the outlined ears caught my attention right away! That and velvety brown nose!

    Why are they called “broken” Siamese Mini Satins, they look pretty functional to me πŸ˜€

      If they’re broken, I’ll take them! Do I get a discount?

      I was going to ask the same thing! Good thing I refreshed the page before commenting. πŸ˜‰

      The google tells us “Broken – a white rabbit with patches of color. A broken black has black patches, a broken tort has tort patches, etc.” and satins are breeds with “translucent shiny fur.” I’m guessing Siamese refers to the facial markings being similar to a Siamese cat?

        I don’t care what u call them. They look SOFT! Very soft.

      • Brandi Morgan May 9, 2016 / 2:21 pm

        Yes, Mini Satins and Satins are the shiniest of buns. They are very soft. Siamese Mini Satins look like the bunny version of Siamese cats. These are broken (with white patches), but if you see a solid Siamese, their markings really look like the cats!

            Siamese bunny looks VERY disapproving.

            • Faye May 9, 2016 / 6:40 pm

              Cat + Rabbit = Crabbit. That explains it. I didn’t know you could cross breed these!!

              Seriously, both stunning.

            I love the Siamese coloring, but it’s rare in rescues, so I’ve never had one. This bun does look a little disgruntled. πŸ˜ƒ
            (Anyone else think of The Lady and the Tramp’s evil kitties every time they hear “Siamese”? 🎢”We are Siamese if you please, we are Siamese if you DON’T please…”🎢)

    I don’t know why but the brown noses make them especially adorable

    Beautiful bunnehs, broken, unbroken, shiny, or unshiny. Love the siamese coloring. Hope the bebehs go to loving homes.

      They are show bunnies (yes, they have bunny shows — I had no idea until I met my girlfriend!), so they will live with us so my girlfriend and family can show them. I love them all very much and they will get many cuddles, kisses, and dandelion greens :).

    They are lovely – it’s always a good time for bunnies!
