At 9 weeks, she is already in the process of getting her junior coat. I hate to be a wet blanket, but if she were my doe, I wouldn't try to show her. The breed standard requires at least 10% of a broken's coat to be colored (not more than 50%), I don't think she has enough color. That's one-tenth of the total body area, belly included; unless your doe has something going on on the side we can't see, it doesn't look like she'd meet that requirement. If you just want to practice on her, of course, go right ahead, but I really think she'd be disqualified if she were entered in a class at an ARBA sanctioned show.

It's true, for a rabbit with so little body color, she does have quite a bit around her eyes and nose. I could see white on her ears (a fault, not a DQ) and I wasn't sure how much it covered. But if the judges went 3 for 3, it won't be an issue (at least, not on their tables.)

I think she has nice body type from what i can see. i have to agree with bunny lady about her color. i wouldnt take the risk. have you done the pencil test on her? that will show any faults in her pose. also if her head was down all the way it would show how good her ears are.
