Before the championships, we saw some "athletes." When a trainer showed audience a bunny, the bunny got nervous. To calm down the boy rabbit, a trainer or his "mummy" tickled his tummy. I love to see the bunny having its tummy tickled. So adorable.
The competition set a course that included obstacles and a pond. The staff told me that already some rabbits took years to learn to jump (*Obstacles for "senior athletes" were difficult, high and a long distance). Good on you, bunnies! All of them were brave! It was very interesting to observe how a rabbit jumps.
One of trainers, a lady's bunny rabbit (*I sketched it named "Go go") has started to learn it for only 8 months (= "Junior athletes" did easy obstacles). The staff try not to give bunnies too much stress etc. This "Gogo" is one of the smallest breeds. Gogo looks like a wild rabbit. Mmm, so chaaarrrming! The lady has a school visit with Gogo. I'm sure students will love it.
The Rabbit Hopping Society, their welcome of us, their enthusiasm and genuine love for rabbits are touching. I've learned a lot about rabbits and could get anatomical information of bunnies. Thank you very much for the Rabbit Hopping Society! See you next time.
Now, we're in an Easter Holiday. Have a wonderful and safe long weekend.
Friends, Happy Painting!
