The link provided above about a diet for Holland Lops does not conform to recommendations by the House Rabbit Society. It seems to be a diet intended for breeding rabbits -- high protein pellet food and less hay.

Hay should be the bulk of any rabbit diet-- the primary food. Pellets should make up a tiny (as in like 3%) of the overall diet.

Here is a forum link on diet:

Diet for rabbit should consist mainly of fresh hay and access to water.

Rabbits also should have greens in their diet, but should be introduced slowly to not upset their tummies. Lots of different kinds of lettuce, mustard greens, kale, parsley, cilantro, basil, are all great!

they should be given fruits and carrots sparingly as treats.

the fun thing about grooming rabbits, is that they will clean themselves! So unless you have a breed with a longer coat, you’ll only need to brush around shedding time. But angora rabbits require daily brushing. You should also never use water to clean your rabbit.
