My husband and I have always enjoyed the country life and have raised many animals throughout the years. When I saw my first Lionhead rabbit I knew that some day I would have to own one. Since then my rabbitry has grown to include Lionheads, Holland Lops, Mini Rex, Netherland Dwarf, and Dutch bunnies. All are small breeds that range from 2-5 pounds. As a member of ARBA, we strive to raise rabbits that conform to their standards.
Rabbits make wonderful pets! They are quiet, easy to care for, and very entertaining!
Lionheads usually mature at 2.5 - 3.5 pounds and are now a recognized breed. I find they make wonderful pets/companions and require brushing twice a week. They do best in a wire floored cage. Current colors approved for showing are Ruby Eyed White, Torts, Seal, Siamese Sable, and Chocolate. Other colors are in the process for approval. Pictured to the left is Bunny Express Crystal. She is a Blue Tort Lionhead.
Holland Lops normally mature between 3 and 4 pounds. They are the smallest breed of lop-eared rabbits. They have a wonderful temperament and are very popular as family pets/companions. Pictured to the right is Woodland Rabbitry Kiwi. Kiwi is a Tort/Black Holland Lop.
Netherland Dwarf bunnies mature at 2 - 2.5 pounds. They are easy to handle and are also known for being great family/house pets. Pictured to the left is Bella Coniglio's Lexi. Lexi is a Ruby Eyed White Netherland Dwarf.
Ideal weight for the Mini Rex is 4 pounds. They are known for their plush-like fur and it's lustrous appearance. Pictured left is Lomar's Blue. A blue Mini Rex buck now owned by Bunny Express Rabbitry:)
Dutch rabbits have always been a popular breed because of their size and friendly personalities. Ideal weight being 4 1/2 pounds. They are very intelligent as well as playful and come in a variety of colors. Pictured to the right is Schwandt's Roam-eo. He is a Chinchilla colored Dutch rabbit.
