She is beautiful- can I ask what technique do you use to get them use to being held? My little boy loves pats and head rubs but there’s no way he will let me hold him to do his nails so I have to take him to the vets each time
She has such a cheeky look on her face in that last picView attachment 51047

I’m already letting Embla get used to be touched. While she eats I will lift her front paws so she put her weight on me and I will also stroke her body. Today she allow me to touch her ears without pulling back and I can stroke her stomach for a few seconds.
So it’s really positive signs when I’m going to train her to be picked up. But that’s after bonding with her, we are still in the area to get to know each other and building up a positive connection between being touched and that she can trust me. I’m not going to force her anything or stress her. We will just do everything within her tempo but she’s a really good bunny. I would literaly put her as a bunny good for new owners. Because she seem to be an easy bunny to build a bond with and train. With how brave and curious she is.
It feels so good when I don’t need to take it super slow and can already pet her and touch her really smooth fur
It’s the doll bed from Ikea, I like that she’s so comfortable being with meOmgoodness! She is adorable...she makes me want that bed!
Thanks Mac, she’s quite a handful compared with my other bunnies but it’s fun. She’s my first bunny that chew things and can easily jump up onto thingsEmbla is so beautiful! Congrats on bringing her home! She really lucked into finding you as a rabbit parent. I missed when you first got her and now get to enjoy all the pictures of your beautiful, well-loved little hare. I'm, so happy for you and her, as well as love seeing all the pictures of your adventures!
