Querida's morning salads are higher in calories than her evening salads. They also
contain more aromatic herbs such as basil, fennel, dill, sage, oregano, and rosemary out of our organic garden. She is particularly
fond of basil so that is usually the mainstay of her morning salad. We also trim a few leaves off of our prairie grass plants,
Big Bluestem, Little Bluestem, Indian Grass and Switch Grass which she enjoys. She also gets her fruit treats for the day
in this salad. Usually she gets a tiny slice of apple, a blueberry or two, a raspberry or perhaps a tiny bite of melon. She
also gets edible flowers, such as squash blossoms or marigolds.
In the evening, Querida's salad consists of more vegetables and greens than her
morning salad. She usually gets parsley and cilantro (her favorite) as a basis for the salad. Added goodies include broccoli,
mustard greens, endive, romaine, a snow pea (only the flat ones that don't have the peas developed in them), and, usually,
a tiny slice of carrot.
The rest of the Princess' diet consists of both free-choice pellets (because she
is so young) and two different types of hay. She prefers the timothy hay, but does eat prairie hay as well. The prairie hay
is also used to line her "Throne" - which she uses quite faithfully.
As she grows up, her pellets will be restricted, but she will always have unlimited
hay available. Her current pellets are alfalfa-based but that will change as she grows up to grass hay-based pellets as the
alfalfa is too rich for a grown up bunny.
Here is the Grand Wedding Salad, prepared in the Royal Kitchen for the Royal Wedding of Her Royal Highness,
Querida, Princesa de Conejo to His Grace, William von Hopsburg, Duke of Rosenkohl. It includes all their favorite herbs and
fruits, as well as the artichoke, which William really liked.
