I just lost my dear Zumba, a beautiful holland lop bunny... I put her outside for 1 hour, it wasn't too hot and it was kind of breezy, so when I came back she was gone... I'm so sad but I'm thinking to get another bunny. I'm just wondering why she died?

I have a Holland lop, his stool has been loose off and on for two weeks. His fur is white but his legs and down by his tail is brown. How can I get his fur back white again? I have given him a bath once a week and let him soak but it didn't help.

    Is it diarrhea? If it's diarrhea you will want to clear that up first. Keep the cage very clean and give very few fresh greens until the stools are looking more solid. Continue giving him baths as well. Hope that helps!

I just bought 2 eight week old Holland lop bunnies. Their ears are not floppy. The person I purchased them from informed to start pinching their ears, is that correct? It seems cruel to me. Thank-you

    No, there is no need to pinch their ears if they are true lops! Their ears will flop over all on their own! They may be less floppy when they are younger, but by the time they are full grown, their ears will be exactly as they were meant to be.

    The Creme D'Argent are full-sized rabbits and can be over 10 pounds when full grown. The Netherland Dwarfs are smaller - only reaching around 2 pounds. A mix of these guys could really be any size in between that.

My name is Hope and I have a silver doe and a black and white coloured buck. They make my life great, the doe was named Immaculate and the buck Prudence. They are so big just like a six month old baby.

Marie - 2013-07-30
Hi: My name is Marie we have a beautiful Holland Lop Male Bunny, he is a little over a year old. He has been wonderful to us. He followed us around the house and played tag with us, let us hold him, hug him and kiss him. He was extremely loveable, never went to bite or lunge at us. But we went on vacation and left him with very good family friends who knew how to take care of bunnies since they had them previously. I failed to mention he has the run of our apartment and is extremely spoiled with lots of toys etc. When I left him with friends I made a schedule out of what he does and told them if they were leaving him in the basement to leave a light on and always give him a lot of attention because this is what he is used to. Well he has been home over a week now and will not let us pick him up, play with him, he runs from us as though he has been abused, will not play with us like he normally does. It's as though we have a totally different bunny and it is scaring us. I called the vet he told me to give him 2 weeks and see what happens, that bunnies hold grudges. But something does not seem right, how do we tell if our baby has been abused in ANY WAY????? PLEASE HELP US WE ARE CRYING OUR EYES OUT OVER THIS THIS IS OUR BABY....... THANK YOU.

    I'm so sorry about your bunny. :( Did you find out from the people who watched him if anything happened? One thing that comes to my mind is the possibility of a young child (or anyone really) accidentally dropping the rabbit and tramatizing or hurting him. Is he still eating well and does it appear that he is moving around without problems? If a leg was hurt he would probably be limping. I hope the vet is right and it just takes some time for your little guy to readjust.

I can't find any info as to a Jersey Wooly rabbit's wool can be used for fiber as it is with angora rabbits. If anyone knows please let me know. Also is their a difference between a Jersey Wooly and a Jersey Wooly Dwarf Angora rabbit?

    No the rabbit you got; Jersey Wooly, is a Jersey Wooly they are dwarf, some call them dwarf angoras. Yes the rabbit can be used for fur. You just won't get as much since the rabbit is smaller.

    It can be used as fiber but, like the last poster said, you don't get nearly as much as you need. I have 3 cashmere rabbits who I shear every summer and in order for me to get enough fiber for a decent length of yarn, I do a blend. The same can be done with Woolly fur but, it's a bit trickier than just plain fleece.

Hi guys, just thought I'd let you know that over here in Australia, a Jersey Woolly, is known as Jersey Woolly. Not a Dwarf Angora :) Thanks for the great info by the way. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for letting us know! Maybe it used to be called a Dwarf Angora by some  groups at some point and is no longer used?

Just read Danielles message and my holland-lop Ginger also passed away this summer and miss her so much. She was the guard rabbit of the back yard, kept the cats off her grass or should I say flower beds
Miss her so much have raised a few lops and are all great animals should have large hutches to stretch out in.
To all the Holland Lop lovers the best for your future!
