SMELLS LIKE APPLE ...

A friend down the road prunes his 6 or 7 apple trees very severely every year. He brings us a lot of the branches and we clip them into 8 inch lengths and store them in a big bucket. Most all the bunns love them and can strip the bark in a few hours! We have seen Savannah take a thin one and eat it like a piece of hay!

Now we have this big bucket of naked sticks, waiting for the burn pile.

Love the blue eyes!
I am going to get some sticks from my bunnysitter's apple trees too - anything to distract Miss Eve from digging and pulling at the carpet..

Wow I want some apple sticks!

By the way, RG, we don't live with any cats, just the bunnies and the bunny slaves at our place!

Can we help de-bark those sticks?? Apple trees don't grow here :(

We're thinking of planting an apple tree in our yard just for the buns but figure it'd be many years before we get any branches. Lucky buns to have a nice ready supply!
