The one buck I sold was a sable point I got a free breeding to him or a baby that is his color. I can breed him to my orange doe that be nice.

I am not sure if anyone read Domestic Rabbits yet as I just had it show up in the mailbox this week, but there is an article about Elops this time around and it does specifically state that they are not accepted in Pointed White or Tan colors. Also, the change in the SOP weights is going to DQ my buck with 2 legs. Argh. :(

When you refer to a pointed white.. is this the same as a Sable point (like "rd's Enigma"- who, to me, is a shaded white of sorts)?
Also, what is the new weight standard for the ELop? Pie is at around 10lbs... is that considered too small to qualify now?

I know it can be confusing for sure, but pointed white would be a white rabbit with colored points and red eyes (aa B_ ch_ D_ E for a black pointed white for example). A sable point usually has a cream kind of color on the body, brown eyes, sepia points, and shading like a tort (genetically aa B_ cchl_ D_ ee for example). The English Lop breed recognizes sable points like Enigma as a showable color, but pointed whites are unfortunately not.

As far as the standard, I haven't purchased the new book yet, but I was told they raised the minimum weight for seniors to 9.5 lbs for bucks and 10.5 lbs for does. If Pie is 10lbs then he is fine but his sire will no longer be showable as he was 9lbs when we had him registered. :(

I hope this helps,

Lauren

A sable point is the chinchilla version of a tort.

Does this mean that a bun will always to be referred to their weight when he/she is initially registered? Are they not weighed at show time? Im just asking because what if the buns weight has increased (or lowered) since registration... is this not taken into consideration at show?

Oh, and BTW, Enigma is one of the most amazingly beautiful rabbits I have ever seen (with the exception of Pie, of course- LOL)!

Sorry, that probably sounded confusing- I use their registration weight as a good reference point when I look at their records, but judges can and will weigh a rabbit on the tables to make sure they make the cut (and will disqualify them if they don't). My boy always hovers around 9lbs no matter what I do, so that change in the SOP really put a monkey wrench in potential shows.

Thanks for the kind words about Enigma! :)
