     Querida eats the diet recommended by the House Rabbit Society. She gets fresh water each morning, and we monitor it to make sure she is getting enough. A rabbit should drink about 10ml to every 100g of body weight every day.

     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.

Querida's Morning Salad

     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.

The Wedding Salad

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.
