Pictured above is a child with a blue eyed white Holland Lop baby.
Holland Lops are the smallest lop breed. They get to be about four pounds when full grown. They have short hair. With this type of hair you do not have to worry about frequent grooming to prevent matting etc. It is still nice to groom them on a regular basis to help get out lose dead hairs as well as keep them used to being groomed. It is helpful to brush them when they are molting/shedding a lot. Like other breeds the do need their nails trimmed as needed. Holland Lops have shorter ears that should be around their head.
We handle all bunnies on a regular basis.
It is important to continue handling your bunny (just like with other pets, kittens and puppies for example) - picking up, holding, petting, grooming, etc etc after you get your bunny and throughout its life. Doing this will help your bunny get used to those things if he/she is not already used to and make it easier for you to do those things when you want or need to.
It is also good to do research about rabbits - rabbits in general, the breed, care, training tips, etc. Education yourself and your family about rabbits, their care, etc can be done anytime. There is a lot of information out there. There are books, magazines, dvds, youtube videos, as well as other free information on the internet.
Bunnies can do well living inside and or outside. If you chose for your bunny to live outside all year long we do recommend doing things to help bunny stay cool in the heat and stay warm in the winter. Make sure you figure out where the bunny is used to living and where you will have the bunny live before you get the bunny settled in. A drastic change in temperature can actually be very harmful to a bunny and cause it to go into shock.
When in comes to letting the bunny out to play in the house make sure that everything is picked up off the floor - children's toys, crumbs from foods bunny should not eat, small pieces, wire/cords are not easily accessible, etc - to make sure it is safe for the bunny.
When it comes to leaving the bunny out outside to play and exercise be careful to first examine the area in which the bunny will be in and potentially eat plants from. You will want to make sure there are not any toxins/poisons such as weed killers. You will want to make sure you can identify the plants growing in that area and whether or not they are okay for the bunny to eat.
A rabbits diet. When you do your research you may find mixed information on what a rabbits diet should be, and or when certain foods should be added to their diet.
Like many other animals bunnies do like treats, but do not forget to check what treats are okay for the bunny to eat before giving them to the bunny. Some treats can cause an upset stomach or lead to death so be careful in choosing the bunny's treats.
Its recommended to wait until the rabbit is 6 months old or older to start adding treats to his/her diet (fruits, vegetables, etc treats).
