Sorry for the bunny tangent, but just wanted to pitch in my thoughts on the safe plants lists floating around. I have no idea who compiles those, but in what world is lettuce unsafe for bunnies? And clover?! Oxalis??? Also, my rabbit will practically gnaw through the fence to get at our plum trees. I keep a small pile of leaves and twiggy branches in his outdoor pen for him to play in. He strips the leaves off and bruxes on the wood. Maybe these things are toxic, I don't know, but he's been eating piles of the stuff for years, including all the snail-nibbled lettuce leaves and a lettuce core almost every day. I have a couple kinds of oxalis (my favorite is pink wood sorrel) in a few shady spots in the yard and loooooove it in a salad mix. It gets a bad rap for oxalic acid (like spinach) but I haven't been able to find any citation for the idea that it's unsafe, except in massive amounts.
I hear ya on the pet food bill... happily if you have the storage space and a nearby horse-friendly feed store, a bale of sweet orchard or timothy hay is a tiny fraction of the price of pet bunny food and it takes us most of a year to go through a bale.
“Falconry is not a hobby or an amusement; it is a rage. You eat and drink it, sleep it and think it. You tremble to write of it, even in recollection. It is as King James the First remarked, an extreme stirrer up of passions.” --T.H. White, The Godstone and the Blackymor
