Holland lop or Mini?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby WyoBunnies » Mon Oct 01, 2018 11:54 am


I recently adopted a rabbit. Estimated to be just over a year old. I was told she's a Holland lop, but I think she may be a mini. She seems on the large side for a Holland, (or she could just be over weight, she does have a pretty hefty neck bloop). But she has a different head shape than my other 2 Mini's. Can anybody tell me what they think?

The color is tortoise. That's common in hollands. There nothing really here says she wouldn't be holland, to me, albeit a large one.

You have to do the most good for the most. You most remember that a few will won't make it. Don't be ashamed to shed a tear for the ones lost along the way, we will not hold it against you. Just remember "the herd goes on".
