Limerick is energetic, active, funny, and very spirited. She is social and smart so can likely be trained to do just about anything with treats. She is a great girl, but her smarts and her energy will keep her new family on their toes, so previous rabbit experience is a good idea. Limerick has gorgeous, soft, blue/grey fur and always keeps herself clean. She is very particular about where things in her area go & she gets upset when they're moved.
Shamrock is pretty easy to take care of. She's a bit more aloof than her sister but still very interested in what's going on around her.
Neither Shamrock nor Limerick are comfortable being picked up or being held. However, if you sit on the floor with them they'll come check you out to see what you're up to. They have no problem jumping up on the couch to sit next to you & watch TV, but don't expect to cuddle with them by picking them up. Since they'd prefer not to be picked up or held, a family without young kids is probably best for this pair.
The only vice that both of these girls have is nipping at your socks or pant legs if you're taking too long to fill up their food bowl. Due to their fondness for food, their intake may have to be monitored in the future to prevent them from becoming too round. These girls aren't used to living in a cage; they generally have free run of their rabbit-proofed room and they take full advantage of it. Allowing them to continue this lifestyle and get lots of exercise will help keep their waists a little slimmer. They also enjoy spending time outside in a safe, rabbit-proof enclosure. They enjoy digging in the dirt, chewing on branches, and jumping up on boxes. They could happily live as either indoor or outdoor rabbits, provided that their enclosure is warm and safe, and they get daily interaction from their new family.
These girls are both spayed, are 1 year old, and are standard sized rabbits.
