Oooh! This will be fun....ok here's my idea:
Angora/Fuzzy lop/Jersey wooly/Hot tot
So a white rabbit with black circles around the eyes, SUPER fluffy long fur, Up ears, and super soft. If I ever moved back to the U.S.A I would really think of trying that out. Crossing a Jersey Wooly and Angora and then crossing that with a Fuzzy lop cross hot tot.
What would that look like?

I do hope you are planning to take about 10 years developing, and sorting out genetic defects -- before you pass them on to people looking for a "pet rabbit"

It sounds like it would be fun if someone had the time and money to invest in very good breeding stock and only keeping the best of the best and trying to get rid of bad genes and not inbreed. I mean if I had 10k I'd probably do something similar

I have spent a lot of time sorting genetic defects out of established meat / fur breeds-- the idea of creating a miniature Pet breed would totally scare me... done right this would be a major undertaking...

I want some sort of mix between a NZ/ American Chin/ and SF. Which is something I've actually managed to get. I'm curious to see what they'll look like grown. They have an amazing, very sweet personality, easy to handle, and they have grown really big seeing as it's only been the two of them. They are black right now, but, I'm curious to see if they are going to get the silvering (Kind've hoping one does and one don't or both won't, I would love two solid black rabbits)

It would be a deep red like a belg, hare. It would have super short fur like a velvet lop, but with short ears. If it could be super shiny like a satin it would be nice too.

I'd make a 5 lb, cylindrical breed with a long, pointed head, fine bone, and in solid colors only. Basically a solid colored Himalayan, but slightly larger
I have shown: argente brun, Belgian hare, Britannia petite, dutch, English spot, Flemish giant, harlequin, Havana, Himalayan, Holland lop, jersey wooly, mini lop, mini rex, netherland dwarf, new Zealand, polish, standard chinchilla, tan, velveteen lop; American & coronet cavies; muffed ice pigeons, parlour tumblers, frillbacks; brahma, dutch chickens; cortunix quail
CZECH FROSTIES ARE NOT CYLINDRICAL THEY ARE JUST COMPACTS WITH A FLAT TOPLINE

I just got a new idea!!!! It was a rabbit in one of my dreams... :lol:
It would never happen LFB said, but still it would be a really cool breed/color!!
A Pointed Harlequin. A white rabbit with Harlequin points at the nose, paws, ears, tail ( lol :lol: ), ect.
Wouldn't that be super cool!!!??!

I think I'd want a breed of rabbits who are:

- Exceptionally cold hardy (So probably shorter ears, thick foot furpads, maybe slightly larger size overall, due to surface area considerations.)
- With slightly thicker/longer than average fur
- Who can raise litters in the cold, and have excellent maternal charicteristics.
- With the body type and size of my NZW buck
- But who come primarily in ermine/frosty coat patterns.

They'd have to have a suitably arctic/frosty/ermine-y name, to boot. :D

(My selection critera may be fairly biased by recent conditions, though).
