    So my rabbit broke 2 of his toenails and I am going to be showing him on 5/18/19 and I was wondering because of that will he be disqualified?

    . Thanks!

    The toenails need to long enough to determine color for it to not be a DQ. The judges will probably be more picky about it if its a variety that's prone to nail issues (anything dilute, anything sable based, etc)

    Black tortoise holland lops don't usually have nail issues. Blue tortoise and sable point hollands do sometimes. Broken holland lops are allowed mismatched nails, but usually just have white nails, so with the broken it doesn't need to be long enough to tell color, just long enough that he know hes not missing a nail entirely. How badly did he break his toenails? Even if theres just a couple millimeters of nail left it's usually enough to tell color. (If you have any other questions on rabbit showing as well, feel free to ask me, I'm an ARBA judge and I've been showing for years. I used to breed holland lops but only show Himalayans now.)

    Also he isn't missing his whole nail but he broke mostly all of his quick of So would that be fine to still show him?
