I was so excited this morning to see a jackrabbit on the ranch. I have to admit he/she wasn't as big as the rabbits in this picture but there was no mistaking those tall ears. Our county used to be full of jackrabbits. Over the years something has happened to them. Wild hogs eat them and people like to road hunt. The last time we saw one was a few years ago in another county in a country cemetary. We only saw one but I figure there must have been a Mom and Dad somewhere and so one is a start. We do have some cottontails and I like them too but there is nothing like those big ears hopping up and down to excite a country girl.
