Rabbit enthusiasts are truly enthusiasts! Each year I marvel at the hundreds of wonderful photos people send in of their rabbits for our photo contest. It’s a joy to see all the cute bunnies, even though it makes it rather difficult to choose winners.
This year, I think we have more honorable mentions than ever before. Aase Bjerner of Denmark sent in one of the winning photos. She has an interesting story about the jump used in the photo. She made it because after attending rabbit-hopping events, she and a group of other attendees usually end up going to McDonald’s to eat. Turn to Page 101 to see her winning photo.
Bjerner also submitted the photo you see here that shows the stages of a rabbit hop exercise. Usually, rabbits are on harness and leash when hopping. Her rabbit, Lamborghini Gallardo, recently won 4th place in a hopping championship that had 20 contestants. Learn more about rabbit hopping on her website at www.kaninhop.dk/uk. And be sure to enter our photo contest for next year!
