    Here are some posed and not so posed pictures of my senior mini lops.
    Let me know what you think. I know they are not great, but tell me what strengths you see as well as what their weaknesses are.

    Thanks!

    Does - Not such good pictures, they where about a week from having babies when I took them so I didn't force them to pose right. The back and face pics are good though.

    Thanks! Sorry some of the pictures are sideways, I rotated them but when I uploaded them to photobucket they where back sideways again?

    Hello, I tried to see your pictures and I went to just a general site. I raised Mini Lops,Holland Lops,Netherland Dwarfs - Reds eyes and Blue, New Zealand whites. I had been in the rabbit biuseness since 9th grade. Gee's that's 21 yrs ago! I raised them for pets,show,and meat. Many of my rabbits were Grand Champions with 4 legs. The 4 legs basically to say that for every Grand Chamion you get it eaquals 1 leg.
    Perhaps u could PM with the picutes normally and I can do my best for u.

    Have fun with the bunnies!!!!

    They look good, did I see some white on the agouti? There should be no white on them but the tail. The sign of really good coloring is to look at the rings and how many their are with the spacing evenly. The ears should be naturally hung. Please don't force their ears down. You can break their cartilege by doing so. The broken black looks good too. Make sure they are not over weight. Do they hunch up like that often? If so let them out to run and stretch. It will help their haunches from looking boxy. Just remember that bucks should only weight 5 1/2 lbs and the does 6lbs. Look forward to seeing the does.
