Silver's plan could be rather simple ... Rg5 rh5.
How would we prevent the rabbit loss?

1. I think silver's plan is to swarm the f3 trap, not capture the rabbit.
 
2. If silver played that move, it would still take him 5 steps to capture the rabbit.  That's plenty of time to either move our elephant to f5 or seek compensation elsewhere for the rabbit.

Oh you're right.  I didn't see that.  Ok so if sharpvector plays that move we can either keep the frame or the rabbit but not both.  
 
As long as we have no advanced pieces near f6 that rabbit is going to be in an awkward position.  For what it's worth, I think our biggest problem is our limited control of c6, not the h5 rabbit.

Looks like it would save the rabbit.
