    Hello! I have two litters of mini lop kits right now. Both with the same sire, different dams. I have some pictures of the older ones (almost 10 weeks old) stacked, if you would let me know what you think of them.
    Also some pictures of the younger ones (almost 2 weeks old) not really sure on their colors. I don't know a ton about the sire just have him and his parents information. He has a fawn and a agouti in his background. The doe I have a full pedigree on she is Black and has blacks both solid and broken, agouti and blue both solid and broken as well as one lynx in her pedigree. There are seven of these kits, four are black, one is black chestnut agouti (I think) it seems darker then our other agouti's where as kits though, and two are a blue shade. I have had blue kits before (blue americans,and blue mini rex) and these don't look the same, they seem to have another shade to them, not sure, sometimes it looks white sometimes tan. Any ideas on them would be awesome, otherwise I will get some new pictures next week when they are a bit bigger.
    Thanks
    Melissa

    1st litter of Mini lops- Dad- Alex - Agouti ; Mom- Ninja - Broken agouti
    Born on August 5th - There where eight. Two pointed white, four agouti, and two broken agouti. I sold four and have these four left.
    Pointed White Buck - I think its blue pointed - points are a bit light I know, but does he have good body shape?

    2nd litter of Mini lops- Dad- Alex- Agouti ; Mom - Eva - Black
    Born on September 23rd - There are Seven. Four are black, not sure on the colors of the others. It was hard to get a good picture of the color of them. I may need to wait till next week and try again!

    Also I got this guy at a local swap. He is 4 months old and has a pedigree, he was also really cheap. I know hes not the best buck ever, but what is good and what is bad about him. His name is Wall-E by the way.

    wow, thirty people have viewed but no one has any opinions? I wish there was a forum like this one only for rabbits. I have tried with backyard herds before but get less replies then here, sometimes none.
    Anyway I know eventually someone will come along who can tell me what they think about my young bunnies!
    Thanks for looking guys!

    I'm no help on if they have show potential, but they are pretty! Use to have Mini Lops a couple years ago but sold them since we really didn't have any use for them.

    I'm working on my judging license but I'm no where near close so don't take my opioning with a grain of salt.

    1. Yes he is a blue point.
    Head good
    Ears good but folded spilt them now
    Crown good but looks a touch far back
    Bone good.
    Color Nice
    Shoulders good
    Midsection good
    Hind Quarters chopppy
    Note
    Check his hind legs he looks to be sitting cow hocked

    2. Yes you are right on color. She looks good from the top but i want to see more of her.


    3.
    Head good
    Ears good
    Crown fair it's far back
    Bone good
    Color VG
    Shoulders can't tell
    Midsection can't tell
    Hind Quarters better fair but not great.
    4.
    Head good
    Ears very good
    Crown Very good
    Bone good
    Color good
    Shoulders can't tell
    Midsection can't tell
    Hind Quarters nice

    5. Broken black

    Head good
    Ears nice
    Crown good could be farther up
    Bone good
    Color nice

    the #4 doe is the best IMHO.

    Quote:I will get some more pictures of them from top and sides. #1 doesn't really sit like that, I am just learning how to stack them and was having issues with their back feet, When I would get the front right they would slide their back legs out to the side. I will try to get some more pictures.

    Any ideas on the color of the blueish ones in the youngest litter

    Hey gaited horse, how does one go about getting licensed for judging rabbit breeds? Sounds neat. [​IMG]


    I have no idea on the show/breeding quality of the rabbits...just that they are awfully cute.

    I hope you don't mind my picking them apart like that.

    I'm glad you don't mind. Just a trick I learned from a friend that shows Holland Lops is push the hair around the crown up it makes the crown look bigger and farther up. ARBA breeders do it just before taking an animal up to the judging table.
