Tru-Luv Moesha looked very promising right from the beginning. She had very nice huge head in just a few weeks old. Looking at her today, I realized that a lot of hard work is needed to achieve what I want in my rabbits. Although I am looking into the possibilities of importing more, it is wise to keep the gene pool small at the moment. I really want to see what wonders line breeding can do for me. Introducing totally unrelated lines and outcrossing my rabbits will only dilute the genes further and it will turn out to be a wild goose chase in the end.
I know what you get from the next generation is what you see in both the buck and doe that you breed but some genes up the lineage may manifest themselves unknowingly. That is the reason why, most breeders keep their gene pool small.
I was hoping that her head would mature. Some rabbits are known to have their head mature after 18 months (1.5 years for the head to pop!).
