Sunday Chillax!

I made some observation on all the bunnies’ behavior while using the run. Most of them like to dig at the 4 corners and causes all the wood shavings to go flying out the play pen. I have since placed a corner litter tray at one of the corners. I then place tiles on the other 3 corners. The tiles worked out very well. I put cardboard boxes on top of 2 of the tiles and guess what?

They love chilling out on top of the cooling tiles!

Carmel never fails to touch my heart

This is one amazing doe. I love all my Hollands but Carmel is one of those that is truly engaging and as they say, possesses charisma and the X-factor.

Just look at her!

Sunday 3-in-1

I hope everyone’s having a great Sunday. I was contemplating whether to write 3 post and schedule them to appear for the next 3 days. But I am just too lazy to do that and therefore, write about 3 very random topics in just 1 post.

First of all, a little update on Carmel. The more I admire Carmel, the most stunning I find her to be. She is ever ready to strike a perfect show pose whenever she is being placed on the grooming table. Really love this doe tons and million. I am still very grateful for Kay’s generosity.

I absolutely love her when she does this!

There is nothing else I could ask for when I this beautiful girl and there are definitely reasons for her to be among the top lops!

……………………………………………………..

Haley is a very interesting character. I adore her loads! Sometimes I she will just sit at the cage door moving her head from side to side in deep thoughts while looking straight at me. She is such a doll to have and her actions are more of a puppy than a bunny.

Is this a puppy or a bunny?

Is this a puppy or a bunny?

This is the reason why I love Holland Lops sooOOooo much! They are just like puppies that do not bark!

Please don’t mind the messy cage floor. I placed a cardboard at the bottom for her to destroy. Try tearing up a cardboard while stepping on it. Kinda fun don’t you think?

……………………………………………………..

TLR started raising Holland Lops in 2006. Have I produce any Show Quality bunnies thus far? Out of all the breedings so far, I dare say that there are 2 bunnies that in my opinion deserve to be on the show tables. The first would be Eclipse from BlueBerry & Skor cross and Truffles from Holly Hope & Skor cross. To be very honest and judgmental, more work has got to be done to improve from here. I am strictly refering to rabbits of my own breeding. I do not believe in importing Grand Champs and put them on the tables.

Speaking of Truffles, he needs a more prominent crown and bigger head. On the experience point of view, he proved to me that long ears are purely GENETICS. His ears seemed to be long because he has got a slipped crown. Looking at him, I refuse to believe in “Summer Ears”. Where we are, it is over 80 degrees fahrenheit constantly. For now, I strongly believe that genetics play a great role in the appearances of rabbits. The only effect the weather have on rabbits here in Malaysia is their coat. I find them molting constantly. I am not considering airconditioning plainly because, we must breed rabbits that are highly adaptable in our climate. I must ensure that my rabbits do not drop dead the moment there is no airconditioning so therefore, it is wise to keep them healthy under the natural condition.

Carmel’s Buntocks

One of the first thing I noticed about Carmel is her buttocks! I am not a bunny pervert but her bum have quite a nice pattern to it. Her condition is superb and the white patterns on her body is immaculately white. She really looks like a bunny angel to me.

I just realized how much I miss posting photos of my bunnies. And I am sure everyone misses photos too. I am slowly coming out the of woods of being traumatized by the psychotic and hopefully my fellow bunny friends can help shield me from trouble.

Here’s Carmel:

Natural Beauties!

Thunder says: Hear Ye! Hear Ye! We would like to thank thy SB, P & D for dropping by to baby us all today! Special thanks & gratitude goes to SB for holding on so tightly to the heavy piece of black thing that has a fat telescope protruding out from the front, while following our every move tirelessly and clicking away (what a mouthful-that’s what the cheeks are for)!

Please note that Master Tim did not make us pose in these photos since we are given full authority over our publicity budget & planning. These are our own very creative poses. Not everyday is show day here in Malaysia!

The Stage Is Set: Photo Session Test Drive

We’ll be having the official photo session for the new quad (and hopefully we’ll have time for the current residents of TLR) tomorrow morning.

I have prepared a spot where the photos are to be taken. It is at the brightest spot of the house. Fingers crossed that it will be a success! Stay tuned for loads of photos tomorrow!

Here are 2 unofficial test runs using my non-DLSR camera. LOL!

Miller’s Carmel (MM2) My Mysterious Little Doe

One look at this doe you would know that there is something very special about her. I am writing this as a tribute to her. So far, what I can say about her is that, this doe can really really pose. She is ever ready to pose for you and I hope that passes down to her offspring. Carmel has been listed as Top Lop #7 for 2007 (Fall 2008 issue of Hollander).

I believe Carmel was the BJD (Broken Junior Doe) in this 2007 HLRSC Nationals Results page.
