~My rabbits are very spoiled, every one of them. They're first on my mind when I wake up and, most of the time, when I go to sleep.
~I spend a lot of money on them and often don't spend money of myself to save more in case something comes up with the bunnies.
~They all have sweet, amazing pet temperaments whether they are for a pet, show or brood. Each rabbit makes a wonderful addition to your family. Even if they aren't going to be a pet, they are easy to handle and pose for show and breeding.
~I believe that Holland Lops should not be cheap pets. They can live as long as a small dog or cat (10+ years), and you would never expect to spend less then $200 on a popular dog breed, right? Rabbits need love and care. If you would like to commit to having a rabbit as a part of your family, and can't afford the price of the bunny, how will you be able to afford veterinary care or getting the rabbit spayed/neutered? The start-up cost for the rabbit (with everything except the rabbit), is also much more expensive then the bunny.
~We work with our babies on posing for the show tables as soon as they leave the nestbox.
~I was blessed to start out with amazing stock right away and had the chance to borrow amazing bucks, so the babies are of great show quality and I believe the could do well on the show tables. They are from fantastic lines.
~Hollands a stressful breed, to say the least! They are very delicate and require just the right amount of care. There is always the possibility that a baby won't make it to weaning, or to being sold. Does that you think are pregnant just won't give birth.
~It takes a lot of time, money, stress, and inconveniences (to all my family members), to bring these baby bunnies into the world.
So far, I have not made a profit off of my bunnies. I want my rabbits to basically "pay for themselves", but to do that with so small of a rabbitry, I need to have high prices.
Thanks for understanding!
