Hi, I thought I would share a nice treat and value added component to having rabbits.

Home made dog treats!

I start with a fresh rabbit hide. Wash it really well and wrap it in a zip lock bag and set it in the fridge for a couple of weeks and then test it. If the fur doesn't slip off easily just put it back in the bag and leave it a few more days. Having only done this once I am not totally sure how long it takes the fur to slip so will be trying a few more and keeping better notes.

But once the fur starts to slip just rub off all that you can. The picture is a hide that most of the fur came off of easily.

Then I cut the hide - no picture as my camera decided to act up that day - into short strips. About 2 inches by 5 inches. I could have just as easily dried the entire hide and given her that but cut in to bits it lasts longer.

Then I put them onto a cookie sheet and popped them into a slow oven.

Five hours later they were nice and crispy. After about an hour I had to unstick them from the pan but that was the only tending they got.

Yes, the treats look frightful, all furry and strange but my dog LOVES them!

Rabbit ears also dry a treat and we never throw them away anymore.

The fur can be used for felt making but I havnt yet gotten that far Laughing

Laugh and the world laughs with you, laugh hysterically, for no apparent reason, and they'll leave you alone!

The Gods answer all our prayers. Unfortunately, sometimes, the answer is no!
