Plush Lop!

Post Number:#1  Unread postby Cattle Cait » Wed Feb 09, 2011 12:30 pm


Yes, I get a little breed obsessive. Oh well.

Look at this guy! He's adorable! Are there any breeders (other than the one I found) of Plush Lop breeders in the US? I guess I could make them myself...don't really feel like it though if I can just buy them.

I know!!! He's absolutely one of the cutest things I've ever laid eyes on, and I think I kind of need one or six of them. And...he's in Wisconsin! So when I come relieve YOUR rabbitry of Americans and Beverens next year I can stop by this rabbitry too. I'm going to raid Wisconsin!

Let me know good/bad things, because unless I'm told that they're ravaging people-killers they are going to be a part of my rabbit shopping invasion.

The concept behind the Velveteen was English Lop meets Mini Rex. Mini Rex size and fur, with English Lop body/head/ears.

These Plush Lops are more like Holland Lop meets Mini Rex. They're stockier and MUCH better quality rex fur than Velveteens, because they've been being developed much longer. The originals are in Britain. They also have shorter ears.

I attached a stolen photo of a Velveteen so you can compare. The Plush I posted isn't the greatest example of a Plush, but he's adorable.

Arba won't be issuing a cod on them, they are too close to Velveteen Lops and don't constitute a separate "breed" from the Velveteens. The one in the picture on top (blue) looks like a Velveteen more than what a plush with Holland heritage would look like. In fact he looks like an excellent example of a young Velveteen! :) There are 2 rabbitries that I have found with the 'plush lops" one is in Kentucky and is called Hidden valley or something, they have a gazillion breeds and other weird animals, I think the link may be here somewhere. The other is the Iron Spike rabbitry in Alberta Canada which are the ones that had the herd of white Americans and didn't know it.

I found what looks like a reputable breeder in Wisconsin, I also saw the ones in Kentucky and I don't think that I'll be going to that one...seems a bit sketchy.

I don't think I'd try to introduce them to ARBA, but I think they'd be great to sell as pets! Or for me to keep in my house and love on...

Oh, my, that plush lop at the top... you just have this obsessive urge to rub your hands all over his fur... it just looks sooooo soft! :)
