    Yes on purebred. That is, they seem to have English lop only in the last few generations. But not papered, so I don't think they can be called purebred. I've always been confused how that works. I believe one is a broken black tort (second photo), and I think the other is a fawn, but I really don't know. Congrats! I love, love, LOVE this breed. Out of all the breeds I've owned and been around, Elops are by far my favorite. If you make them house bunnies, you'll practically have a dog. One health issue I've noticed in even show lines are eye problems in the breed. Things like entropia seem unusually common.
