    ...And a HUGE one too!

    I went to a local auction today, not expecting to bring anything home, and ended up bringing a 12 pound rabbit back! She is absolutely adorable, and a real sweetie!

    I wasn't sure of the breed, but after looking through some pictures, it looks like she is a definite french lop. She has long floppy ears and she is a broken brown and white color. HUGE, but mostly fur. At first I though Flemish Giant, but she looks nothing like one after all.

    She fits perfectly into the hutch, as I was worried it would be too small! I have no idea how old she is, but she appears to be very healthy, with nice, bright, clean eyes, a very clean rear end, and nice feet. Looks like she was someone's pet. She even has a tattoo in her ear. I will be showing her in the local 4-H fair, but mostly just for fun. I have a jersey woolie buck and he never wins, but he is a great pet.

    I am very happy with her and happy that she won't end up as someone's dinner! She was just too sweet to pass up, even though I didn't really want another rabbit! Does anyone else have a french lop? I will try to post pics tomorrow.

    That would be awesome!

    We think it says M0004, but I will have to go down and check it once more. I was a little unsure about the last number. We are in NJ.

    I have no idea if she was a show rabbit, or is even show quality, but she will make a great pet! It would be interesting to know more about her though.

    Miss Deb, I forgot to say that even though I am in NJ, she is originally from Connecticut.

    I took a few pictures this morning. I hope you like her! Also, any info as to breed, quality (If purebred), etc would be wonderful! I spent some time with her today and she is so sweet once I catch her. She is very large though, so it can be awkward holding her! Compared to my little jersey wooly, she is a mammoth! I decided to name her Maya.

    I'll see what I can find out. I traced a tat a few years ago on a rescue and came up with the breeder and how old she was. But thats about all she could tell me about her.

    She is a pretty girl though! Nothing like a wonderful big lovable bunny! I like em big [​IMG]
