    Do Mini Lops carry the Dwarfing Gene??

    The reason I ask is today my Mini Lop doe had a litter (her first and we lost all 7 because she had them on the wire instead of the nest) out of 7 there were 3 that absolutely fit the "peanut" description. It would have been 99.99% improbable that she could have had "peanuts" because the father...

    Foster mom stopped feeding, now what?

    Help! My foster doe has decided to only feed the 4 day old kits and not the 10 day old kits. She had been feeding both until the day before yesterday.

    Guess the breed!

    They are all the same breed, the same litter even. Momma is out of frame so she can not give you a hint. It is one of the breeds I raise. They are 4 weeks old in these pictures.

    Mini Lop show entry question

    My friend is entering a Pointed White (Himilayan Marked) Mini Lop into a show tomorrow morning and we are not sure if it falls under a solid or broken for entry. Can anyone give us a heads up so we don't have to ask a judge or the show secretary while he is busy.

    Show or no?

    Sorry for the large pics, photobucket is being a pain tonight. I got this guy as a rescue, I think he is very nice. I believe he is a Fawn and he has a massive head and great crown and ears. I am debating as to whether he is good enough to show. I don't immediately see any DQ's.
