New rabbit, what color am I?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby JessicaR » Fri Sep 16, 2016 1:09 pm


So I was bad :lol: I went to Rural King to buy dog food and came home with a bunny too!

She is a very pretty mini lop my daughter is going to be so surprised she has been missing her bunnies since she decided to sell her dutch rabbits last winter. I really suck at colors for rabbits, and its probably not a recognized color, but she was so pretty! There was 3 other minis with her, 1 was blue and white, 1 was I believe a silver tipped blue steel (could be wrong) and the other was kind of colored like her but darker, but not quite dark enough to call a chinchilla. I wish I would of took pics of them all, oh well. Here is her pictures, she looks darker in the pictures than she does in real life. I think I will try and get some of her outside later and see if that changes the way she looks.

Unsure of color but she really is beautiful! I have a Chin doe that has an albino mom and she's starting to look more like this.. Maybe that's what your bunny is? I would take a pic of her but I doubt I could capture her pattern good.

Sable frost...sable ermine...believe also called frosted sable pearl too (more ML if I remember correctly, I have HL and they're just sable frosty/sable ermines) but not 100% on that one...lots of names for same color lol.

If didn't have the brown tinge and darker ears would say just frosty (ermine) but since it seems she's shaded, sable frosty.

I was looking up mini lop colors, and I "think" she is a frosted pearl? She looks lighter though than the rabbits in the pictures I saw, but that could be because she is young (8-10 weeks old)

here is an updated picture of Frost at about 5months old. She has gotten a lot darker than what she was. Do you still think she is a frosted pearl?

Like I said in my first comment she looks like my chin doe lol. Although my doe is a New Zealand/Chinchilla cross they are the same color and look to have stayed almost the same color throughout growing up.

Yes, it is very rare for a chinchilla to be that light but not impossible

A would say really light chin, but...
A chinchilla would normally have SOME color on the feet. Those pure white feet are kinda throwing me off.

Is it a possible booted broken?

Zass, it is possible that she is booted. There was a booted broken rabbit in the cage with her, I am assuming it was a sibling. There was also one that at the time I thought was too light to be a chinchilla but seeing how much she darkened now I am wondering if it was. These guys were probably either from a pet breeder that just sold them to Rural King or more likely cull ones from a show breeder. She is only going to be shown in the pet class for 4H so her color quality doesn't matter, we just need to know what color to call her. :lol: Here is another picture of her taken without the flash.

I thought all chins had white feet?!?!? Harlem is probably my favorite little NZ/Chin cross and she has half white feet, and a solid white belly, her sister from another mister but same mom also has the white feet.
