Clovis 'n Carrots


What bunny does not like carrots?

I used to give Clovis some carrot and carrot greens every day but when he started having poop problems I cut back to just the carrot greens.
 

I try to have carrot greens in the fridge at all times. I usually shop Fred Meyer because they have the best bunny veges and you can get just about anything else you need from lightbulbs to underwear. Freddy's always has fresh organic carrots with the tops on.  A couple of times when I have shopped for carrots I have found the tops that someone has taken off and left. SCORE!

Lately I have been leaving a little of the carrot left on the tops. No surprise that's the first thing off the plate every morning.  One drawback to buying a bunch of carrots every week just for the greens - waaay more carrots than we can eat. 


Clovie, don't poke yourself in the eye...

Clovie you look like you are enjoying those greens. I wish mine liked carrot tops.

Thanks Speedy's Mum. We do like the herbs too. All our troubles went away when we switched to Oxbow pellets.

You know I love Clovie! :)

How about making carrot juice? It's supposed to be very good for you! When I give my bunnies carrots, Mr. Jamal gets carrot juice all in his dewlap and it's orange for days. I took him to see Dr. Whetstone (he has a crush on his vet ... loves, loves, loves her!) with orange on his dewlap once and she told him to clean up his dewlap before his next appointmnet ... he looked so embarrassed! hee hee!
