    My son wants to try rabbits next year for 4H, he really likes the looks of the holland lops, they are pretty adorable. Anyone have experience with them? Anything I should look for when making a purchase? Is there one color preferred over another?

    Thanks!

    Look up the standard on Hollands to help you pick nice stock. They are pretty sweet from what I know of them. [​IMG]

    Holland Lops are INCREDIBLY sweet!! We had one, but had to re-home it due to our current living arrangements. We miss her so much.

    Hollands are the sweetest buns. We raised and showed them for yrs.. What I recommend is looking for a show breeder, start asking questions about the breed. Most all breeders of quality buns will sit and talk to you. But they can help with what to look for in a bun. And will have a varity of colors to look at to see what color you like the best.
