Please meet mother hare Ermine.
A textile ornament of a real-size mother hare to display fondly in your home.
When Ermine was born she had the blackest of tails and whitest body fur her mama had ever seen, so she named her Ermine after the stoat’s winter coat. By spring her tail had turned whiter than the snow itself!
Ermine may look like a slim, small hare but her size belies her strength. She is known throughout the meadows and woodland as a strong and fierce fighter mother, the best of the best. She got this reputation when she had her first baby. Stoat in his winter coat had chanced upon the youngster and was about to take him away, but Ermine heard his tiny squeals and ran to the nest, she attacked Stoat and fearlessly chased after him, trampling him to the ground and biting his black tail. To this day Stoat never comes near any hare babies now.
Some of the other mothers have asked Ermine if she may give them a few tips on fending off intruders but Ermine can’t really explain how she does it. It just comes naturally to her and she is spurred on by a wave of energy. The other mothers understand this, as all the mothers of the world do, and they have made sure that their babies’ nests are as close to Ermine’s babies as possible. Ermine knows and is glad she can help for she loves all the babies.
She has been taking yoga lessons to help her relax and become centered so that she may be able to write a book about her fighting techniques. It’s been working, she has one chapter finished already – Detection of Threat Offensive and Initial Ready Response Reaction to Stoat et al.
Ermine is looking forward to making herself comfy on your arm chair with a view to the garden and all the nests out there. She still has her yoga appointments and is hoping to have her book finished soon. Would you like to attend the yoga too?
