Kim's Hopping Lops is an American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA) registered rabbitry located in Fleetwood, Pennsylvania. I have Holland Lops and Velveteen Lops.
For a time period I did also have and show Lionheads. During the time I had Lionheads I was also was a member of the North American Lionhead Rabbit Club (NALRC).
I am a member of the American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA), the Holland Lop Rabbit Specialty Club (HLRSC), and the Velveteen Lop Rabbit Club of America (VLRCA) . Former member and current leader of Berks County 4-H Rabbitry and Cavy Club.
Unfortunately the Velveteen Lop Rabbit Club of American (VLRCA) dissolved as of 8/15/17.
All of our bunnies are handled regularly. They are socialized by both children and adults.
Holland Lops a very popular breed both to have as pets as well as show. Holland Lops make great pets. They are very mellow and they are the smallest breed of lop-eared rabbit. Don't be confused by the name Mini Lops - Mini Lops are actually a larger lop breed than Holland Lops as well as there is more than just size that is different in that breed. Holland Lops don't need a ton of space and they eat less food than bigger rabbits. They were named after Holland and the breed was created in the 1960's. Their ears should hang down an inch below their jawbone and sit next on their cheeks. The head should be high on their shoulders. The ideal weight is 3 pounds, but they should be about 2-4 pounds. The HLRSC also has a great guidebook full of lots of information and pictures (both color and black and white pictures).
THE STORY BOOK RABBIT IS REAL!
Velveteen Lops are a newer breed. The breed began in 1990 in the United States. For a Velveteen Lop to be shown its ears are to be a minimum of 15 inches long (from the tip of one ear to the tip of the other ear). Ear length should be in proportion to the body. Head should be wedge shaped, and body should be mandolin shaped. To be shown, Velveteen Lops under the age of six months of must weight a minimum of three and a half pounds up to the maximum of five pounds; and a minimum of five to maximum of six and half pounds to be shown in the senior class. Velveteen Lops get to be about five to six and a half pounds. Velveteen Lops look similar to English Lops, but they are smaller, and the have fur like a Rex or Mini Rex. Velveteen Lops come in several different broken and solid colors - Velveteen Lops follow the Lop color guide. For more information please feel free to contact me or check out the VLRCA's website - the VLRCA also sends out a guidebook to its members - that guidebook has tons of great information in it. Unfortunately the Velveteen Lop Rabbit Club of American (VLRCA) dissolved as of 8/15/17 - the website is still up for the time being.
