Run Rabbit Run Run Run


I was hopping up and down complaining about the rabbits that were eating my garden at group one night when my Reki Master said "Ask them to leave. Simply send reiki and ask the rabbits to leave".


I have been asking the rabbits to leave, even the family had commented that they haven't seen any rabbits.
(These photos on camera are back in early October) 
It's working - and yes I doubted myself.


Our neighbour rang this week to advise they were going to do a poison drop as they are now over run by rabbits. Just sitting on their deck 4 or 5 rabbits would pop up and lop around on their lawn. 
Rabbit holes are everywhere in the paddocks - this is very dangerous to the stock.

I felt guilty - have our rabbits gone to their place?. &  GASP what about the residential hawks.
 They will be killed too from eating poisoned rabbits. We like the hawks and often leave something out for them in the winter when food is in short supply.

Brent phoned our neighbours and they said they hadn't thought about the hawks and they didn't want to hurt them - Last night the hunting season started. Using manual methods to keep the rabbit population down prevents the poison drop from happening.
The boys skinned and dressed the rabbits - looks like rabbit stew is on the menu tonight.

  1. Rabbit stew is delicious, my Mum made so many, in the old fashioned dish with a steam funnel!!! There were so many on our farm, here we have one small one, that lives between us and Fiona's place. Maybe he likes her alpacas more than our grass. Funny, not one has ever gone to the vege garden.. Good shooting, guys, far better than poison, Cheers, Jean

  4. I believe that if you ask for them to go they do. I use to put the white light around my house when we lived in the country as the previous people that lived there said they had rats in the roof and inside (there was evidence of this) and when I started doing the prayer with the white light they disappeared and we had no problems with them for the 5 years that we lived there.

    1. I've been doing what I was told and AMAZED (mindew I wouldn't be surprized if I'm getting a little help from my Reiki Master on this too SMILE) I must ask her

  5. If you ask them to go they just bother someone else!
    James and Brent had the sensible solution. ( I thought it was your gun? ) Quick, painless and definite. If you leave the carcasses out for the hawks you have just done them a random act of kindness.
    I don't believe in killing just for sport ,but if some species has got out of control and is a pest action is needed.( be it rabbits, possums, slugs, snails, caterpillars or rosella. )
    Dug down in the vegie garden they make good fertilizer.

    1. Rabbit casserole & home made bread - yum
      Food always tastes better when you catch it yourself & prepare it with love.
      The bunny left overs have been buried and a new Kowhai tree planted over them - Natures circle of life continues.

  6. We are over run here with rabbits too Leanne. They do so much damage to the grass & the garden ... people say to me "Oh look at the lovely bunnies " & I think to myself I wish I could shoot. My Mr shoots them when he is here too & I sometimes bury them in the garden as a lady told me they make great fertiliser for the soil.

    1. The other paddocks around us are covered in bunny holes the boys couldn't believe how we have no rabbits at our place when they saw how riddled the neighbours places are over run with rabbits. Love Leanne

  9. Greqt work boys, I've been considering breeding those large rabbits for meat. I worry about our wild rabbits as the government have released two viruses out to try and control the population. We can inoculate pet rabbits against them making them safer to eat.

    1. Bunnies bite - I'm not a fan of pet bunnies even for the pot. Flemish giants would be the breed you want? Love Leanne

  10. Good on the guys, a much better solution and the rabbit stew will keep the grocery bill down...plus there will still be bits to feed the hawks. Sounds like fair play all round to me.

  11. http://www.adventures-in-cooking.com/2013/04/rabbit-stew.html#_a5y_p=973324 I based the stew on this recipe - turned out well. Abbey ate vegetarian. The bits n bobs the boys buried under a new Kowhai tree. James has plans for the skin. So every little last bit is used. Love Leanne
