I'm not great with rabbit breeds, but I love their ears!

You can go to the American Rabbit Breeders Association web site and find a breed chart. See if you can find something that looks like yours. Unless things have changed a lot in the past few years, I have never heard of a broken variety of the New Zealand breed. They are white.. Probably it is a cross of some sort.

The New Zealand is showable in the following colors:

 

New Zealand Red

 

New Zealand Black

 

New Zealand White

Broken Black New Zealand

Broken Red New Zealand

 

(incidentally, the pics of  the Red and the Black that I chose are immature animals, the White is a mature buck, and the Broken Black a mature doe; this accounts for the differences in things like the length of the ears and the shape of the head)

 

There are people working on getting Blue accepted, but that's still a work in progress.

Holy moley! Look at that red! I'd consider getting back into rabbits for that! What a beauty! Thanks for posting these photos. Who'd- a-thunk, colored New Zealand's!

Believe it or not, the first recognized color for New Zealands was Red (in 1912, according to the ARBA). White wasn't recognized until a decade or so later, but it has become so common, most people have no idea that New Zealands come in any other color.

I saw that. . I looked them up. That's what I get for looking only at Rex for years ;-).
