I don’t know why I have chosen this title but Superstar by Luther Vandross seemed to be one of my favorite songs. Anyway, it is very early in the morning right now and the real reason is that I just can’t think straight let alone come up with a good title for this post.

Tried capturing photos of little Knee-Yo this evening. Trust me when I say it was the most excruciating photo session ever! My camera just can’t register the black object in him. Poor me and poor him. But thanks to some pointers from a dear friend, I was able to capture a few decent photos of him. Didn’t I tell you that there is perfection in the midst of imperfection? This is so true when Knee-Yo’s blind white eye was the only contrast my camera could capture. Thus, these photos are much clearer.

Do you believe me now how difficult it is to capture a black bunny?

Could be better...

Heli"chopter" ear...

Love this cutie...

I also capture some photos of Sibylla who needs to get her head puffed up with fur.

Acting cute!

Looking more like daddy...

Could be better with higher head mount

Java a.k.a. Brown Sugar was cam-whoring for me too. I can’t resist so I snapped some of her too…

Give me a little pat on the head will ya?

Tru-Luv Knee-Yo @ Week 3

Little Knee-Yo is 3 weeks old today and such a cutie filled with a zest for life.

The perfect side

Unfortunately, we all know the irony of raising Hollands. If it wasn’t for one problem, it would be another. I noticed that his right eye is a little cloudy the moment it was opened. I have been applying an ointment but to no avail. It is definitely sad because I have so much high hopes for this one.

I am sure there is always perfection among imperfections.

Tru-Luv Knee-Yo Day 15

“Black till it shines”, said my wife.

That’s exactly what this 15 day old is. Among other traits that I notice is the wideness & short ears. I hope they stay that way. At this age, nothing is for certain. Right now anything can look like a miniature Thunder. LOL!

Enjoy these photos…

Love the paws!

Shorty ears!



Lazy little fellow...

Hi, down under!

The Run’s Back!

After almost a month without the run, it is finally back in business. I was having problem with rabbits digging up newspaper that I line underneath the wood shaving beddings. I finally stop procrastinating and bought a piece of huge wire mesh to line the bottom of the play pen so that they will not be able to dig the newspaper up.

Wonder how long the cleanliness will last...

Also, glad to announce that baby Knee-Yo has its eyes opened today. Thanks to the tip given by a dear friend, I gathered my little family around to welcome this little kit into this world when I gave it a help opening its eyes. It is good to help at day 11 if they are still closed to avoid blindness. As I split the eyes open, we whispered “Welcome to the world little one”. Thanks Colleen for this wonderful “tradition” that I will sure to practice for the rest of my rabbit raising days.

Can you see my little bunny teeth?

Another thing that I noticed is how unavoidable it is not to have black colored Hollands in my herd. Honestly, I do not really fancy black Hollands all that much because it is so difficult to capture photos of them. Unfortunately, black is one of the most dominant color if you go through color genetics.

Then again, who cares about color when type is all we need? I hope Knee-Yo will turn out well.

As you can see, it is very difficult to capture photos of a black rabbit
