A word is said to be a snapsism of another word if it fits the following criteria:

1. it contains the same number of letters as the other word;
2. it does not have any of the same letters in the same position as the other word;
3. each letter of the word can be swapped into the other word, one at a time, so that other words are produced.
4. it is not slang, an acronym or an abbreviation.

A snapsism chain is formed when a word is a snapsism of another word which is a snapsism of another word and so on, where each successive snapsism does not have a letter appearing in the same position as any other words.
eg. "son, pat, big" form a snapsism chain (Sat, pOt, paN; Pig, bAg, biT) but "bed, pat, big" is not a snapsism chain as "bed" and "big" have "b" in the same position.

Can you complete the two snapsism chains below?

1. ____, ____, hare
2. ____, ____, hare
