Alright someone is being really rude to me about posting in two forums. I'm new to this kind of stuff so didn't know the rules or what cross posting was. I'm just trying to get advice ..and don't want to upset anyone. I'm sorry everyone! I really wasn't trying to get quick replies. Also I'd like to thank mamasheepdog for merging my posts. I don't know how to that lol

I saw one person mentioning it on here...probably meant it only in a way to let you know for future reference...but if someone is harassing you about it in private messages or something maybe message a moderator to let them know? If they are being really rude then the mods may step in for you.

It's been settled. We talked it out and she explained herself in a better way.

Hi Alch0my!

RabbitTalk is not as strict as many other forums, and we do not have any rules about "cross posting" at this time. We may need to implement that in the future as the forum grows, but as of now there is no need.

It is my understanding that it is considered poor internet etiquette to cross post, but I have very little experience anywhere but this site, so I am pretty clueless myself when it comes to proper form. :roll:

I don't know about other forums, but here on RT I have observed that usually new posts are responded to very quickly and by multiple users. However, sometimes even though there have been a lot of "views", people may not know the answer or they may not be members of the site, so you may not get as many answers as it seems you should have.

If you have any questions about how to use certain features, please don't hesitate to ask. I know I had a hard time navigating around when I first joined! :roll:

You're welcome! Happy to help. :)

That is not a feature available to you. If you want a topic moved or deleted, the Mods or Admin need to do it for you.

Welcome again to the forum! I hope you find the information here to be helpful.

Ahem!

Now, back to the topic at hand... have you considered Mini Rex instead of Standard? They are very popular as pets and show rabbits, and still have that amazing Rex fur.

I think they would fit your needs much better than the Standard Rex, unless you are also considering a meat rabbit program.

I have decided on mini lops and holland lops. I just love their little spunky attitudes lol. I purchased some quality mini lops and a couple nice holland lops from 2 really good breeders. I have to drive 4 1/2 hours to get my mini lops but they're going to be worth the drive. The female holland lop isn't as far and she's awsome. She's a real pretty blue otter. The mini lops I'm getting are a orange buck, frosty doe and a broken tort buck. They are all so adorable. Later on I'd like to get into raising mini rex or standard rex, but I think I should stick with lops for now. I do love Rex's though! I am getting a beautiful english angora soon. I got first pick of the litter ..so happy and excited. These are very nice english angoras with excellent pedigree. The angora is going to be one spoiled bunny lol.

I didn't know that ...I love otter colored mini/holland lop. I need to read up on what colors are showable. Do you know where I can find that information?

I believe that HL otters are showable but the martens are not. - http://www.rebeccasrabbitry.com/holland ... guide.html

But in Mini lops no colours in the tan group are recognized

I dont know about standard rex, but i raise mini rex and mini lops. Both breeds are very nice breeds, but if you want more docile, i'd go with them mini lops... the mini rex are fairly docile, but they are very curious... the mini lops can be fairly curious, but they love a good lap :)

Yay! Glad you went with the lops. ;)

Otters are showable in Hollands.
