Just How Far Have We Come?

Lately, the oldest rabbit here Carmel has been getting quite a few admirer. At 6 years of age, she still looks like she is in her prime. The most elegant part is her “skirting”. Whenever I look at her, I am always reminded of how far my rabbits have come and the number of generations that has been produced in the last 5 years. I am really happy and grateful for the many people that has helped me along the way. Every kind word said about my rabbits is a form of encouragement and I am really thankful.

I am really glad that I am able to have this enjoyable hobby while living a demanding lifestyle. The most important part is that it has never strayed too far from being just a hobby. I am happy that it did not get commercialized but stayed as a very manageable past time. It is never my intention to keep hundreds of Holland Lops to speed up the improvement process. With the extremely low number of breeding and litters, I am so happy to be able to produce some nice babies. I really have to thank all those who have sent me the best genetics to help me start off this wonderful herd.

I just want to take some time to walk through the generation and the rabbits that has been produced starting from Carmel.

A recent picture of Carmel.

Clark is Carmel’s son and he is sorely missed. Wish I have access to Genesis Ultra Premium Rabbit Food back then and it could have saved Clark from leaving us too soon. He died due to feed problem.

Tru-Luv’s Balian was produced by Clark and have a lot of resemblance of his father. He is really massive. Balian is the first generation produced here in Malaysia.

Miracle is Balian’s son. Second generation produced here.

Then Miracle produced two handsome sons.

Clarkie was named after Clark because I miss my baby Clark a lot. Clarkie reminds me very much of Clark.

Murdoch is another special one. He won 1st BJB in one of the recent shows and I hope he continues to produce beautiful babies for me. Third generation produced here.
