I do like that they mentioned how he's exercised and while he is not overweight, his teeth can't be that good if they just stick a carrot in his face instead of letting him forage for hay.
Maybe someone here with Continental Giant breed expertise can come settle this?
Almost no one in the US messes actively with Contis or German Giants.
I have Flemish. I also read that article, and that poor wabbit eats a tremendous amount of crap, personally.
My biggest doe is 21-point-something pounds. She's built like a truck and has a very long frame. My biggest buck is 20 pounds, twelve ounces and patting his flank feels like patting a brick wall. He's a registered Grand Champion three times over. Yeah, I could probably pork them up by handing them all the kale, carrots, raisins and yogurt treats they care for. Oddly, neither of them actually LIKE them. And really, I don't like my Giants flabby.
My non-wabbit friends send me links to these idiotic Conti or German "world's largest" news stories. I am patient, but I explain to them, look, how would it be if those UK papers had articles about "fattest US baby?"
