    Does any one have a lilac rabbit? I have one named "sweet boy" and yes he is a boy. Would like to see other pics. of them and learn more about them.

    Suggest you join the rarebreedsrabbits group over on Yahoogroups; lots of Lilac fans there. :)

    Lilacs aren't rare in NY anymore. Not uncommon to see a showing of 25ish at shows now. Quite impressive. Though, I have to admit I'd rather see Lilacs get rolled into a variety of Havana since they're pretty much the same thing.

    Just found this! I breed Lilacs in PA! LOVE them! They are a very different breed from Havanas though...Havanas max weight is 6 1/2 lbs, Lilacs are 8lbs, diff heads, ears, and coats. I do believe that some Havana breeders are working on a Lilac variety, but they are two separate breeds. Lilacs are in the top 10 rare breeds in the US and are a lovely breed! If you are interested in another place to discuss them there is a FB group for Lilac breeders... http://www.facebook.com/groups/264817816928130/

    Here is my herd buck [​IMG] He just won his first leg and BOSG on his first time out!
