Wunderschönes Kaninchen :3
Kann ich deine Kaninchenbilder vllt. auf der Plattform für meine Grafiken nutzen!? ^^

Danke für das Lob.
Mich haben schon viele Leute gefragt, ob sie meine Bilder nutzen können und ich bleibe bei "nein". Ich stelle meine Bilder nicht kostenfrei oder zur freien Nuzung zur Verfügung.

Adorable! I used to breed dwarf bunnies too until we had to move. They were white with grey "points" on their paws, nose, and ears then they had golden babies O.o Now I only have 1 bunny a friend gave me, he's black/brown with a little reddish fur too (funny how he changes colours). XD

If it was possible to die from over exposure to cuteness I'd be a zombie right now, where do you take all these pictures? Rabbit shows I'm guessing, so cute, how did you get the camera in with it?
zwergloh Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
I didn't get the camera in. Most time I take the pictures through the wire of the cage. Sometimes I open the cage and take a picture. But most time during holding the cage open, the rabbit come to close to the lense. So most time I take them trough the wire. At my lokal breed club I can get them out before or after the show, to take pictures. Since I also breed and know the breeders I'm allowed to handle them (shows here are 2-3 days, 1st day judging, and the rest open for public).
Not all are taken at shows. Some are my own rabbits =)

:heart: you're kind of lucky that you get to handle so many different rabbits and see them all. What kind of rabbits do you breed? And what's it like breeding them? Do you ever feel bad when you have to sell them?
zwergloh Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Many rabbits are they. Some shows here have over 10.000 rabbits. The German Championship had 25.000 rabbits and was declared to the worlds biggest show.

I breed Netherland dwarfs in black tan and smoke pearl, also Holland Lops in black tan. Most are for show.
I like breeding them, sometimes you have to face unpleasent things like death at birth, etc. But I can't imagine going without my or any rabbits. I like the good moments they give me to much.
Sometimes I feel bad to sell them. I won't give them to just anybody. I like every rabbit of mine and try to give them all a good home. There are some I can't sell. Most I've used for breed I can't sell. So they'll be living with me till nature call them. One of my breeding bucks ist getting 7 this year. I would never sell him. Not for all the money in the world.

It's like rabbit paradise!

I don't really like lop eared rabbits. What started you getting into breeding rabbits? Did you just decide one day that it'd be a great thing to do?
And you must know a lot about rabbit behaviour, can I ask you a question?
I have a neutered Harlequin buck who's not even a year old yet (I think h may be in march), for some reason he's taken a dislike to my mum and lunges and menaces her, sometimes he will also run about my legs and do that rabbit purring noise they make when they like another rabbit. I thought that was something only un-neutered males do, I had chinchilla rabbit before and he was neutered to but he didn't continue to run around and purr

It's a long story about me and breeding. In short I have a lot of allergies. When I was young most meat had antibiotics in it, so I couldn't eat it 'cause of the allergies. My parents thought about rabbits. A few years later we were in a club and breed rabbits for show and meat. After some rabbits got an illness back from a show it took a few days and all rabbits where gone to heaven. After that I started with the tan ND and dwarf rexes. The rexes had I only a few years, cause nearly every youngster had teeth problems. So the hollands came.
neutered males do that too. most time it's importend when they are neutered. When he was neutered very young (12 weeks or younger) most rabbits wont know habbit of adult male. If they are neutered later they can have some experience with being a male and act like that. Most time character of the rabbit is importent too
Sleyf Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Aww that's an interesting story actually, so you just switched from rabbits for food to pet rabbits? I don't think Netherland Dwarfs make for good eating lol
Wow brilliant thanks, yes he was neutered older so that explains it, I always thought it just got rid of that behaviour because I think my other rabbit was the same age (but I'm not sure because he got very large very fast while this one is smaller and was always small) Thanks so much! I was afraid maybe something was wrong lol
zwergloh Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
You don't know if you never try. The ND are small but you can eat them too.
Most sell as pets, but I wont sell them if they have problems with eyes (eg blindness), teeth, etc. That are things which are rare but such rabbits will be raised for meat
