Is it Bunny Tails or a Hare Moment?

Is it Bunny Tails or a Hare Moment?

Very mist morning here today but sun is now breaking through caught this photo of a visitor to the garden question is a rabbit or a hare. Larger than the bunnies here but what made it so odd was it's two tone colour nearly impossible to see it's tail. Have put up an album of it as it high tailed off round the pond. Water level on the pond down by about 6 inches even though it rained again last night, no garden time at the moment as we're doing a major spring clean at the stables and indoor including powerwashing walls etc. amazing how much better it looks hope it'll be finished today. On the seed front some of the Munstead lavender sowed on the 2nd now just starting to show, unbelieveably  the Marigold Crackerjack and Red Sun sunflowers sowed on Monday are up so have taken the lid off the propagator. In the tunnel plants are flying along so with luck the weather will stay dry and mild so as I can garden at the weekend.

His a big old hair.  Your having a great start with your seeds.  I've done Munstead myself so hope they will do well as well.

it could be a hare, it is hard to see for sure because it is the same colour as our rabbit chancer. tomorrow i will do some seeds, havent got around to filling the trays, that is tomorrow mornings work, then i can sow away to my hearts content in the comfort of the kitchen table.

The body, back legs and ears would be longer if it was a hare, I would go with a Rabbit.

Looks like he is keeping a low profile too

My inital thought was it was a cross bred bunny but thinking about it afterwards it seemed too big and moved faster than a bunny it didn't hop. Wonder will it appear again to get another look at it.

some bunnies hop and some crawl just like our bunny chancer
