KYOF_Rabbit_035Prolific breeders, rabbits are well adapted for surviving without help on a farm. They have evolved to fight off predators: they have long ears to aid hearing and strong hind legs for hopping in a zigzag motion; their eyes have a wide field of vision and they sleep with them open; and they live in burrows.

It’s difficult to ascertain why rabbits are kept on farms, but they are charming and symbolic animals, representing fertility and rebirth at Easter.
