    Just wondering who else has lionhead rabbits. We started out with killer, a torte doe that is still cute and fuzzy. She got her name because when we give her carrots she would rip into them like a killer dog. She had 2 babies last year, one was lucy and the other was baby killer. The father of them had wry teeth or something odd like that, they split and wouldnt stop growing, he was a sable. We ended up getting McDreamy, he was a broken black but he got way too big so we sold him and got McSteamy. McSteamy is a sable and he is small with the double mane, very cute. Anyway we bred both killer and baby killer to him and got 1 baby from killer and 3 from baby killer. All appear to be torte and double maned, they are just getting their fuzz on them.
    What all colors do other people have?
