Late Hoglets

Hare Release

11 Oct 2012

Many months ago we took in a beautiful hare, after weeks of bottle feeding, she started to eat solids. Eating on her own was such a relief for us, as she soon started to pile on the weight and it was an end to hours of bottle feeding, not easy when we both work for a living! Rearing baby […]
