1st one - castor doe
2nd one - black otter buck
3rd one - castor buck? (hard to see gender on this one)
4th one - black otter doe? (hard to see gender here)

They're all overposed, but if looking at quality - the castors look like their guard hairs are a bit too long, hard to see much else with overposed pictures

The judges in Michigan tend to over pose rex as well.
I think some of the breeders "train" their rex with the overpose, so that when I judge does set them up properly, they don't push back and ruin the form.

Some of the judges at the end of 2016 seemed to be trying for a better commercial pose for the rex; but there was a lot of inconsistency on the tables.

Just keep at it.... all your bunnies look showable type.... I'm not so good with colour.

I really hope this is the case. I hate seeing the rex poised up like a ball or a mini rex.

Just googling standard rex, this is probably the best posed one I could find: http://www.raising-rabbits.com/images/au3d120130914.jpg
You want the front of its rear toes to line up with the front of its hips

This is the best help I could find. Make sure the rabbits elbows are on the table and its front toes are under its eye.

Though this is the way they are supposed to be shown it seems we are getting into a much more scrunched up pose where the back toes nearly touch or do touch the elbows. I think its wrong but it makes the rabbits look like they have more depth than they really do.

There are some more relaxed pictures of them just laying there and better pics for gender choseing too,
