Need help with judging Champagne D'Argent type

Post Number:#1  Unread postby Sedona » Sat Feb 20, 2021 6:43 pm


I'm looking at this Champagne D'Argent buck. He is quite pricy for my blood, but it is very difficult to find Champagne's near me, and I'd like to get into the breed. My eye isn't very practiced on judging type. How is he? Do you see any major flaws or reasons for why I should steer clear? Thanks!

He is about 14 weeks old.

He look pretty decent. Could use more depth but look like a show type rabbit. Width is very important in commercial breeds though, which is hard to tell from this picture
