    I don't anyone who does 4H, so I can't be sure, but I can't see why there would be a problem. I know that in ARBA sanctioned shows, it is the rabbit, not its family history, that is being evaluated on the table. If every rabbit that had an unshowable color or other DQ in its ancestry couldn't be shown, the classes would be a great deal smaller!

    Depends on what level they intend to show it at. Many 4-H'ers use pet store bunnies in smaller shows. At these, the competition is based more on the kid's performance in showmanship and their rabbit knowledge in general than on the rabbit itself. The rabbits certainly aren't winning many awards, but the people entering them are usually first starting out and in it for the experience and will get better quality rabbits later on if they enjoy it.
