Emma Hartshorne and Wayne Kenworth from Stratford-upon-Avon, UK, transformed their country estate into the ultimate haven for their 30 pet rabbits. Thousands of dollars spent, long hours of hard labor, a number of experts involved, unconventional solutions in landscape design, and an Alice In Wonderland bunny-themed paradise was created. The result is definitely worth the effort!
Almost all elements of the rabbit garden are built by hand from recycled materials. The exception is the maze and the metal fence, which guards the rabbits from wild foxes. The animals move freely around the garden. Emma designed it so that no one gets in anyone's way or competes for the best corner.
According to Emma, her pet rabbits are more like humans than dogs or cats. They soon get bored with doing the same things and like to have fun. On the property, each animal has a personal log cabin and plenty of space to play in.
However, the only thing the bunnies don't have access to is the TV in the living room. And that is only because two people and three bunnies can sit on the coach at the same time, and the rest will be offended.
Emma and Wayne do not breed rabbits, as other farmers, so the bunnies are allowed to play around the house.
The pets love to chase their owner, begging for a piece of toast in the morning. In fact, huge amounts of space aren't necessary for pet rabbits. Like humans, rabbits enjoy staying outdoors and having fresh air, but most of the time they spend in comfort of their home.

Emma says it takes between 15 and 30 minutes a day to take care of her rabbits. "Once a week I jet wash the garden to make sure they have clean grass to eat which probably takes three hours," the woman says.
That's it, the rest is playtime. The couple regularly takes in the rabbits abandoned by negligent owners. And, as a rule, even the grumpiest bunny begins to trust humans after a several days of affection and care.
