[align=center]By Qadoshyah Fish,Hoppin’Herd of Hares[/align]
[align=center]What is a Mini Lop??? The Mini Lop is agreat breed . . . . With their cute, chubby n’ wide faces, big olelopped ears, a cobby and compact body and superior personality, theyare the all around perfect breed. What an easy breed to raise also . .. They have hardly any birthing problems (no peanuts, or max factorbabies), they also have a variety of litter sizes from 1 to 12 kits.There are so many recognized colors, you hardly ever have any un-showable babies. Another plus is they are very easy to pose, just “squish”them into a “little ball”, making sure their feet are in the rightplaces. There’s a pretty good amount of competition on the show tablestoo, since there are quite a few Mini Lop breeders!! They are a veryeasy breed to raise for the youth. With their calm personalities, itmakes it very easy . . . Our Mini Lops are so calm, for an example, wecan hold them in our arms on their back and they just laythere! So....if you would like a simple, easy and cute breed,you've come to the right breed! Enjoy the Mini Lop![/align]
