    She has a nice body. Next time you breed her, get a nice headed buck, that would make some nice babies!

    Oh I think it's a nice head too. I was just saying it could use a little work. Maybe its just the angle of the pic, but the ears seem to lay or be positioned on the head kind of awkwardly. It could be a little wider. But I think she conforms to the standard really well. @WinterChicks . You should consider showing her, after the babies are weaned off of her of course!

    Oh thanks very much! That was a pic her old owner took and said I could use.

    She stuck her ears up as the camera flashed-then she put them back down LOL!

    I dunno if my parents would let me but I would love to show!

    In my opinion, breeding to get a correct head and/or head placement on the shoulders is the hardest for Holland's. That's just my opinion. I have a buck who has terrible head placement, I bred him to a doe with good placement, but she didn't conceive.

    Kinda cool she has ear control though!!!

    On other notes:
    Fern is most likely pregnant. Successful breeding last night and about an hour ago. Anything else I should do or did I breed her enough?

    If you are for sure they successfully bred then theres nothing else to do!

    He fell of twice with grunting noises! I'm gonna make sure he falls off once more then nothing else until palpate, nest box and birth.

    That sounds like he bred. What I do is put them together for a week. I'll post some pics of my baby rabbits tomorrow!
