Meredith Mack found a cute, completely tame, white and brown female rabbit sitting patiently at the farm entrance gates. She lived in the tack room for a few days and was fun to feed carrots. She now has a good home with Leslie Crews who lives across the street. Carl the Dog was especially interested in the rabbit.
