We started our rabbitry in 2012.
We were inspired by the fact that we could not buy a high-quality Holland lop so Lulu could show.
Since then we have done everything in a different way from the way we house our bunnies to how we train and socialize them.
When I see people trying to do the same things I do, I feel proud because we might just have influenced someone's live. It makes me happy when breeders announce that they will sacrifice their time and potty train their bunnies. I feel happy when I see people looking into becoming USDA approved and licensed because it means that they will have to actually clean and care 24/7 for their animals, they will also have to pay taxes and establish a business instead of cheating our government of their taxes.
What makes us unique is the fact that we started to make changes on how people keep rabbits and with that, I hope rabbits will be better cared for and find homes forever!!!
We were created with many talents, some of us are great leaders others are great followers. No matter where you fall on these two categories, you should always be original.
What works for me may not work for you and that's ok!
Find your own niche and be special your own way.
Celebrate being different and unique🐰❤🐰
Tomorrow will be a busy day at Gio's Holland lop of Utah!
We will receive our facility check up with our vet. During his visits we get to talk about rabbit's diet and housing habits.
We take the care of our animals very seriously.
I was told that classified ads are full of "potty training " bunnies.....lol
Most people selling on classifieds are desperate mothers trying to make ends meet. How do they find time to potty train baby bunnies?
The only reason I'm so fortunate with my process is because I'm very lucky to stay home with my twin daughters who are more than helpers to me. They take a great pride of spending time with our bunnies each day, monitoring their progress.
The most important part of potty training a bunny is where they come from.
When a baby sees his mom using their wire floor as a toilet, that is what they will do as well.
Our mothers are all well-trained does, and they give our babies the best start possible.
Are you still considering purchasing an inexpensive bunny on the classified ads?
Do yourself a favor and visit the barn these rabbits live in. It will not take long for you to see the quality of life, dirtiness and lack of interaction such animals receive.
If it sounds too good to be true, it is!!!!
As a Holland lop breeder, my focus is to improve my herd which will, in turn, improve the breed as well. It is a hard task as we love them all the same. Being able to see what faults they have and deciding how you can get rid of such faults isn't easy. Especially when you have a small rabbitry like myself, it can be hard to keep all that you should. I've been following some tips found on the Holland lop Guide book about moving your herd forward and have seen great results.
Winning a ribbon doesn't satisfy me. I want to Love what I see in my rabbitry and be proud of my improvement.
I think we are heading in the right direction and thriving. My juniors are better than their parents and I know what they need to become even better!
Can't wait to see them mature.
Ali is the result of a breeding that I made in hopes of improving crown position and definition. I'm very happy with the result of this breeding.
He is 16 weeks now!
This is Lulu she is out of Katsu and Momentai . My goal here was to produce a doe with nice width and better bone than her mother. I'm very happy with the result.
She is a overall better type than her mother.
Precious is the result of breeding Ace and Vita. I bred them because I wanted a nice type tort that carried sable point in her genes. Mission accomplished!
Princess Jasmine is out of Sarabi and Ace.
She is definetely better then Sarabi because she is a compact doe. She is only 16 weeks and I'm very happy to have her in my herd.
Welcome to my Blog. I hope to inspire you to develop a wonderful relationship with your rabbits. I will share my thoughts and daily updates here. I hope you enjoy!
