    After years of no rabbits 3 years ago we had quite a little colony going, I ate a couple but was concious that I wanted them to breed like rabbits so practically left them alone for two years to build up a good population.

    They were going great guns, and at times there were dozens in the yard and droppings everywhere. Just as thinking about putting a couple in the pot I noticed one with some Mixamatosis, within a month they were all gone. I thought the disease was long gone, but its certainly here in Wales. What a shame, Sian does a wonderful Rabbit and prune stew :Smile:

    HI

    I will see if the butcher has some and bring it to Peterborough. Thanks for letting me know Jim :BigGrin::BigGrin:

    On another note we once had someone at the golf club complain his competitor was practising his swing. The chap he was complaining about claimed he was putting the poor rabbit out of its misery. Mixy is a horrible disease for them

    stew

    Thanks for that post John, it must be 26 years since I saw Jasper Carrot live in Sheffield, the link brought back all the memories of a great night.

    Ladies in the Regency period used to think a mole added attraction to the face and parts of the body that were deliberately exposed, so used to apply false ones; of course they called them 'beauty spots' but I reckon they were still moles. So where's yours? :Rofl1:
    Or is it in the garden?:Eeek:

    :Rofl1:
