I love bunnies but I don't have any. My friend has an adorable bunny with dark points like a Siamese cat. Do you have any pics of your bunnies to post?

We currently have a Lionhead (buck). My mom raises and shows various breeds so when me and the kids end up at a show I have to BUY them a rabbit, they can't go to Grammy's house and GET any rabbit they want, it must cost money! :twisted:

But we have Elmo in the kids room and they all love each other, guess that beats my oldest boy wanting a French as I don't think it would fit in his room. lol

I currently have several mini rexes, a few lionheads and a few holland lops. They are all pedigreed but so far only my rexes have been shown and done very well. I had planned on getting more into showing but now may just breed. There aren't alot of shows close and its too hard to leave the farm for a long time, plus I don't want to. But the bunnies are fun to watch. Here is my lionhead doe when she was younger.

I used to own rabbits. I owned a mini rex named cocoa and she won 3rd in a show after I gave her back to the lady I bought her from. She died shortly after that show from a heat stroke. I owned a few others including a lionhead and a new zealand, hubby had a blue dutch and I had a champion silver martin buck.

Rabbits are great pets, and can be very practical too. When I was a kid we had new zealand whites, and shortly after graduating high school I got a mini rex. The new zealand whites were for meat, and very practical to have around, but my mini rex was a pet and the best pet rabbit I could have asked for. He loved to sit in your lap while you were at the computer or watching tv, and was well behaved when let out of his cage in the house(he'd even go back to his cage if he needed to go to the bathroom).
Having seen how calm and affectionate the mini rex can be, I think if I got rabbits again I would get rex rabbits. I think the full-sized ones would make just as good of pets, with the added option of selling offspring for breeding stock or meat. Flemish giants sound really neat too, but I haven't had the fortune of meeting anyone who owned them so don't know what their temperament is like.

Apparently I just can't catch a break lately! My entire Fuzzy Lop litter died yesterday, and this was a litter I was really looking forward to... I went out to look at my little babies last night to try and cheer myself up about our Charm cat, and what do I find?? A nest of frozen little babies!! Grr
