Cooling off!

Summer heat is very hard on rabbits!
Rabbits can easily die from several different types of heat related deaths, so for small rabbitry's like ours its very important to help them beat the heat.
We make sure they have shade, water and a few things to help cool them off.

I took several washed out glass bottles, added water (little over half way) 
kept the lid off (so it doesn't explode when the ice expands)
and then placed the bottles in the freezer.

Once frozen I waited a few days for it to heat up and then took these out and added them into the cages during the hottest part of the day.

Summer is just starting here and we are still in the low 90's.
As it get hotter and stay's hotter longer, I'll be taking bottles out twice a day.
Once in mid-morning, once in the afternoon.

Blackthorn, really seems to love her little cooler.
