Holland's Rabbit’s Matthew Archer and George Omar
Types of lop rabbit Mini lops Dwarf lops Lionhead lop Mini lionhead lop Netherlands dwarf lop
Mini lops The Mini Lop is the smallest breed of Lop rabbit The adult mini lop weighs in at approx 3 1/2ppounds They are very laid back rabbits and make excellent companions They love attention and love to be picked up, cuddled and handled They are also very easy to house train They have short hair which is very easy to maintain In America the Mini Lop is known as the Holland Lop
Dwarf lops The Dwarf Lop is slightly larger and heavier than a Mini Lop. Nevertheless, they are adorable, loving bunnies, although not ideal for a very young child when it comes to handling purposes. An adult dwarf lop weighs, on average 4 1/2 - 5lbs. The Dwarf Lop is very laid back, and loves cuddles, I love the personality of the dwarf lop. They are happy to be handled and picked up. They are just as easy as a smaller breed to house- train so do make wonderful house rabbits. In America, the Dwarf Lop is called the Mini Lop, which can cause confusion if you purchase an Americanised book about rabbits.
Mini lionhead lops Lionhead are, contrary to belief, small rabbits, I have found that if they are referred to purely as the Lionhead, most people automatically assume that this breed is quite large, as they did once used to be when first introduced into the UK years ago The average adult Mini Lionhead weight is approx They Weigh3 1/4 lbs, which is less than the mini lop which is 3 1/2 lbs so they are an ideal sized rabbit for a child Overall their fur is short so quite easy to maintain and look after (again, contrary to belief) although it is a little thicker than the coat of a lop rabbit The mane around the face is longer obviously, hence the name Lionhead, but again, it is very easy to maintain and does not require daily grooming Although an occasional comb through once a week/fortnight with a metal comb will keep any stray shavings or hay from causing tangles or knots, the rabbit will love this also, grooming is a good way to bond with your rabbit Lionhead ears' stand up rather than lop
