Charms of an animal farm in a little town in NorthEastern Ontario

I spent few days of the 2009 Christmas holidays at my father-in-law’s place, at his charming house near Timmins, a town about 800km north of Toronto. He keeps reindeer and rabbits (among other animals) and it was fun to spend time watching them.

That’s what the house is called

Bunnies of all colours… always on the look for food

Reindeer

The herd.. Just chillin’ (literally!)

The rabbits love stealing reindeer feed and are skilled at escaping their horns. The reindeer are fed twice a day and they will quickly gather around the dinner table as soon as a bell is rung.

More wild rabbits basking in the sun at -15ΒΊC. They run around outside the house all day long unless a predator is lurking in the bushes.

The deer seem to love sleeping out in the open

Yo

Everytime I see animals I feel weird. Animals just exist – grazing and mating. Why don’t they want to read books or eat Thai food?
