Yes, kind of. Those are plush lops, right? I think they use Hollands for those. Not meaty enough for me! LOL! But adorable anyway :)

The swedish name would translate to rex mini lops :) Dvärgvädur rex. But I'm not too familiar with the diffeent breed standards and such.

Rex coated lops are a hype in holland and germany, they are called Rex Widder and are also bred with fuzzy hair called Teddy Widder.

I'm a little odd I guess...I love foxes (fav animal, rabbit being a close second) so I'd want a rabbit with fox coloring...body that orange shade, legs and ears black with the underside of its chin and belly white...and the tip of its tail white with a lil black nose...with all those marking would probably be impossible though since I'd want it the size and temperament of my Flemish maybe if I started with a darker fawn Flemish >.> trick would be getting the black markings of a cali on the fawn body :/

Question about Lionhead manes

Next I am going to breed the fuzziest of these 2 back to their dad, Hairy, to see what holds true.

__________ Mon Mar 04, 2013 3:32 am __________

If they are a new breed, my husband wants to call them Tribbles or Squeeeeees.


Well, as it turns out, the prettiest of the 2 fuzzies is a male. He appears to be double-maned, while his sister is single-maned. I read somewhere that there's a "mane" gene, and if they have 2 copies of it, they get the double. So that would mean my mini-rex mama must have some lionhead in her background as well, to have gotten a double mane from Hairy, who is single-maned? What are the best chances of getting more double-maned babies: rebreeding Hairy/Belle, breeding Belle to her son (now named Valentino, for his eyeliner look), or Hairy to his daughter (now named Priscilla, since she's got the elvis look)?

Those could go either way, DLL.

Do you have any kit pics, 3-7 days?

This may be too young or too badly focused. I think they were only 2 days old, maybe 3 here.

That photo contains Valentino and Priscilla, and I can't even figure for certain which 2 they ARE. I think you probably wanted photos of them about 4 days later, and unfortunately, that was when we started fighting rats again, so photo-taking sort of went out the window :( But thanks for trying to help me decide what to do!

I was thinking about this one day, and I thought to myself. I would want an English Lop body/ears, medium sized rabbit with a rex coat.. and then I stumbled onto a page of Velveteen Lops!
Too bad every breeder I have contacted never replies to me. /: They are my dream.
I would settle for any lop-type with rex fur. The Plush Lops are dolls, can't get a hold of any of those breeders, either though. Foo. :weep:
