This article was written by my son “The Rabbit Shepherd” of whom I am so proud!
My bank account was empty, I needed cash. I thought of starting up my own business of breeding and selling show rabbits. They sell for $100. Of course I thought I would be rich, but no, its not that simple. Holland Lops are THE HARDEST rabbit to breed. Something as simple as Summer can cause them to not breed well. I have learned a lot about caring for rabbits. I will be talking more about this subject later. Let me introduce you to my herd.
This is Burton Guster he is my favorite rabbit. I got him from another rabbitry. He is a very good fit for my does and very curious. He, as well as all of my rabbits love to get out and play in the yard. This is Mopsy, one of the rabbits I started my rabbitry with. I originally had four I now have two. She is one of my main does and very friendly she is also very phat. This is Cottontail, another one I started with. Her broken fur coat is very beautiful for breeding and I have gotten some of my best babies from her. She also got fourth place at a show. This is Patches, one of my babies that Cotton Tail had. I have not bred her yet because it’s Summer but I will breed her soon and get some beautiful babies, I hope. This is Jeth, Burton Guster’s baby, I am sure you can see the resemblance. He would be a great show rabbit but his ear got bit so he can not show. He is a wonderful breeding buck.
This is Valentine Hope she is the nicest rabbit out of all of the rabbits. I know her babies will make great show rabbits and wonderful pets. This is Beso which is Spanish for kiss, because she was born on Valentines Day. She has big and beautiful litters. This is marshmallow she is my up and coming doe. I am hoping to get s’more of her, ha ha.
