We have raised New Zealands for five years. Our children show them at the county fair each year. Last summer we lost the first two we started with. Our doe, Fluffy was nearly 40 pounds when she died. She got longer and bigger with each pregnancy. She was not over weight, just big. She was our best doe and we really miss her. We also lost our favorite buck at that time, Taz. He was a great buck. Both of them were very sweet, loving bunnies. Though they are gone, we have some of their offspring as well as some newly acquired bunnies that we just love. Hairy is one of our favorites. He is a big, cuddly buck. I also have a black New Zealand that we acquired in a strange way. Last year at the county fair, they had some little bunnies in the children's petting zoo. They sold them once the fair was over. We were told that he was a dwarf rabbit of some kind, but no one new exactly what. Well let me tell, he got bigger, and bigger, and bigger. This year at the fair we asked the "rabbit experts" (the judge and 4H rabbit leader) what he might be and they said he was a black new zealand. We just love him. His name is Mocha. Have fun with your bunnies.

Hi there. I have 2 white female new zealand rabiits. Babs and Fluffy =) They have great personalities and are just the sweetest animals. I also had a grey Netherland dwarf called Bunny that somehow managed to breed with one of my girls. Lets just say that the babies were incredibly adorable! I'm glad the babies survived cos my drawf rabbit just recently passed away. I was really happy to have a baby bunny that pretty much looked like my dwarf... only bigger =D

This site is great, tons of great info.

Hi there! I own 5 buns at present; all lovely in their own way but none as docile and sweet as Button. Button is a New Zealand bun with lop ears and I found him at Pets at Home, where he had been living for around 6months. I would see him every time I went to buy rabbit food and felt so sorry for this sweet, tiny (as he WAS!!) bunny. He played on my conscience so much, that one day I decided to buy him. I searched the petshop, but to no avail. When I spoke to the manager, he pointed out that the rabbit had "health problems" and was residing "in the back". I demanded to see him. I was presented, from the cold store-room, a pitiful, thin bun with angry abcesses on his ears (inflicted by a guinea pig). They were reluctant to sell him to me as it was "against policy" to sell sick animals. I warned them that I would report them to the RSPCA.. Cutting a long story short; I am the proud owner of THE cuddliest bunny in the world. Button has full access to the garden, where he leaps and twists in the air in sheer happiness. He also has a girlfriend, Sophie; a Netherland Dwarf! I love this bun to pieces!

i had a new zealand rabbit for 5 years. she didnt get very big but she never bit anyone. if you want a place for her to run around you should think about getting a child playpen, its big enough. you can set it in the back yard and watch her play for hours at a time. i go swimming while she sits in the shade and eats grass, she loves it. her name was ceres, she died a while ago and now i am getting another bunny. this time i think i will get either a havana or a
silver marten rabbit, check out that page to! i miss her
