From what I've seen, the colored lines (blues, chocolates, lilacs, whites) tend to be more high strung than the others. Apparently they were bred into satins to get color, and some kept the satin temperament. The oldest color of silver fox is black, but silver fox isn't that old of a breed; and blues, chocolate and white have all been introduced recently.
I have shown: bruns, hares, petites, dutch, spots, Flemish, harlequin, Havana, Himalayan, Hollands, jersey wooly, mini lop, mini rex, dwarfs, NZW, polish, standard chins, tan, vlops; American & coronet cavies

Beautiful Belgian Hares blackforest_Hares. I have Black and Tan Belgian in the states. Helping to get them recognized as a variety. Hopefully either next year of the year after that they will be.

thanks a lot ♥ :-)

@harelady i think in Staates are several colors are allowed. hmm at least a breeder friend told me so.
There will be the following from the tan-colours; chocolate-tan, lilac-tan and blue-tan. (or am i wrong? :? )
He said that there are almost no breeders of chocolate and lilac.

Only Standard red is recognized for showing (black tan coming soon). But I know of one breeder who has black, blue, black tan, blue tan, chocolate tan, himalayan, and ruby eyed white in her lines.

Only Rufus red is recognized at the moment. We are in the process of recognizing Tan in black, blue, chocolate, and lilac. They will be presented to the standards committee in a couple of weeks. So hopefully they will pass. If all goes well they could be recognized as early as next year. Or the following year depending on the committee decision.

I didn't know you guys were working on all 4 tan colors! I guess black is just the most popular of the 4?

It's the most common variety. I have seen blues and I have heard that someone had a chocolate. But most of the Tans are black. Not so much popularity as in there are just not many that carry blue and chocolate.

Well maybe just one as a pet? Good thing I don't live anywhere near you :lol:

Just out of curiosity, what is the general temerment of Harlequins? Calm, active, territorial, ect.


I love the temperament! But I cull for temperament as well.... I never want to reach into a cage and have to be careful I don't get bitten... I have a few lickers... but no biters.... Kiki is a bit of an attention pig, but I think that is because she has gone to shows since she was 12 weeks old... lol .... (I make the exception of occasional punching when a doe is pregnant or just gave birth) some are shy and some are much more outgoing!! All are characters!
You can also find quite a few breeders in Kentucky and Indiana.... they have some really beautiful rabbits! The best is you can start with brood quality and in the first litter start producing show quality rabbits! Just look for brood with clean crisp lines and deep rich colour!

Hey SarniaTricia, I seem to remember you saying you are interested in BEW Beverens? Do you want to trade? :mrgreen:
