Just like dogs, when a breeder goes into a particular breed, he or she would want to own sound specimens from sound lineage. The lineage determines the quality of rabbits as well. Since embarking on this wonderful hobby, I have always seen amazing Holland Lops online. Some specimens are just so remarkable. I have came across many good and bad rabbitries producing both good and bad show specimens.
A few captured my heart and with due respect, some still have a long way to go. I for one must also admit that there are so much to improve on even with my current herd. Many breeders in the US are not willing to ship this way and that itself is a limiting factor for me and those interested in developing Holland Lops or any other breeds further.
The lines that I would love to own are as follows (in no particular order):
1) The Nature Trail’s
4) THF Saynora’s
5) Three Little Ladies’
7) Pint Sized Pals
8) Chris Zemny’s
These in my own humble opinion are my favorite Holland Lop lines but I must say that some rabbitries do produce amazing kits that I would die for. I am always looking out for BIG HEADS, BROAD SHOULDERS, SHORT EARS and BODY.
I must also admit that these are just some names that I am exposed to via the internet and there might be unchartered waters as far as good lineage is concern. There may be some great rabbitries that does not have a website but are producing great specimens. I have to give credit to those rabbitries as well and hope they do setup websites so that I could appreciate their hard work.
