The correct shade of blue for Beveren is the one in the middle! This was a big discussion at the Stockton fair last weekend. The one on the left, too dark and is American Blue, the one on the right is lilac like the Lilac breed. Since “light lavender blue” has been interpreted differently by… Continue reading Correct shade of Beveren Blue
Combining two really great rabbits into one!! This little guy is the first generation of this cross. Working on an unrelated litter, so that I will hopefully get doublemanes in the next generation.
Here’s an update on my French Blanc de Hotots, that I received from Nova Scotia, first generation descended from La Maison de Laperriere’s French imports. They are larger than American Hotots, are more energetic, and have a longer, leaner build.

We used to let him roam our whole 2-acre property, he considered it his job to run up to greet visitors. After he caught a respiratory illness from the wild… Continue reading Belgian Hare – Jack the Rabbit
Here’s my handsome boy, Sultan, has German lines. Lovely rabbit and lovely personality.
Here’s another look at the Harlequin colony cage. Pip and her litter are on one half of the 10 ft cage. As the litter grows I will section the boys off, keeping them together in a family unit, while also introducing the young Hotot doe to see if they’ll get along. She’s currently on the… Continue reading Colony Cage
