Horace the Hare.

Published in LIFE Magazine in March 1956, photojournalist Carl Mydans's profile of Irish zookeeper Cecil S. Webb and his pet hare, Horace, is sweet, strange, and completely captivating. 


"Horace loves to eat from his master's mouth, kick and drum against him in mock battle, bound about the house from chair to bed to bureau," reads the accompanying article. "And hare, a favorite food all over Europe, has no place on the Webbs' dining table."


See more on the LIFE website here, and have a wonderful spring weekend! (I'll be spending mine at McCarren Park.) See you Monday.

  3. I have two words: jealous and want.

    I was always so jealous of Dr. Dolittle. I love animals and my dream is to be surrounded by them. But I also secretly want to raise a lion....I should've been a vet!

  8. What a little charmer! I've had domesticated house rabbits most of my life & I find it very funny that Horace seems to exhibit many of the same silly behaviors.
    (... and that little butt... Squee! So cute!)
