Cottontail in the Chicken Yard

This rabbit thinks he is one of our pets.  I've never tried to really pet him, but he has no fear of us and will hop, eat and sniff around even just three feet away from us.  The birds pay him no mind, and I even had to shoo him out of the goat barn once.   Maybe he is just one of a whole warren of cinnamon cottontails living here and planning an invasion but he is so friendly, I doubt it.

Today I noticed he had an abscess on his neck.  I hope it heals and he doesn't disappear.  He might also be a "she" which might be a problem.
