  Our calendar each year is an amazing selection of  pictures Loretta Hayward takes of Garden Gate’s sweet rabbits!
The unique poses of bunnies in the garden, posing at a party, or celebrating the seasons and holidays make this treasured collectible a wonderful gift!

Like a visit to our rabbit park!

In many ways this is a picture portfolio that is a brief glimpse of what a visit to our rabbit park is like!

      Garden Gate’s calendar always has surprises in store! There is much more in the pictures if you are observant. The cute rabbit expressions and various poses let you know how curious the rabbit is, whether he may have been eating a blossom, or is ready to leap into another part of the setting! The various locations of the rabbit park set the stage for a series of events or pictures that may be part of a slide show shared at an event, the next illustrated story shared with visitors to our park or  a rabbit adventure story to be included in the next book of the “On the Banks of Durbin Creek” series!!
Be sure to purchase your own Garden Gate Rabbit Park Calendar to show your love for their work with rabbits and to support the educational rabbit park! All printing is done in the USA with South Carolina printers and makes possible the next calendar to be printed! The best help we get from our family of friends & fans is not only volunteer help but also promoting our books, cards & calendars that we may print more inspiring books each year!

          It is amazing how much happens in a year or even a few months! I want to share a few pictures that were taken when Fox 21 reporter Joe Gagnon andSummer  (the camera lady) met  us for  “live”  broadcasting  and  8 interviews!    My son Ronald and I enjoyed meeting with  Joe and his wife Summer and introducing them to some of our rabbits that we raise here at Garden Gate Rabbit Park.            Yes, we were excited!

Set Up Time!

         The Fox21 van was parked and the satellite equipment mounted on top was extended during the setup.

 I set up my camera off to the side on a tripod to get some photos made between each broadcasting. My photos show details not included in the filming made by the TV camera that Summer  was using.  Our rabbits were very entertaining  and  Mindy one of our English Lop rabbits is posing in front of Joe.  He really enjoyed  the rabbits whether we were “on the air” or off!

     Summer and Joe liked feeding the rabbits as you can see and met  six of our rabbits that were different breeds.    They saw firsthand how much our bunnies liked all the special attention as well as the fresh violets that the rabbits enjoyed nibbling every opportunity that they could get!

     Ronald told about our Flemish Giants and Spike is posing in the picture waiting for his turn to talk “on the air”  as Joe holds the mic.  Spike would have been much more interested if the mic was edible!

     We enjoy sharing with people news, various humorous experiences we have had raising rabbits,  our extraordinary work raising different rabbit breeds and dressing the bunnies for picture taking time.  The various events we attend give people time to meet  a lot of rabbits.  A variety of information is shared through our educational programs, various slideshows and presentations!  These unforgettable  experiences  make lifelong impressions!
