Bunny Breed Guide: Mini Lop/ Holland Lop Rabbits

Updated on October 8, 2007

If you've ever been to a pet store, then you are probably already familiar with the mini lop (also known as the Holland Lop). These little floppy eared bunnies have found great favor in the pet trade, in spite of the fact that oftentimes their natures are more skittish and less friendly than those of their larger, less compact counterparts. Fact of the matter is, Mini Lops are ridiculously cute, especially as kits, and it is hard to resist their little faces and big floppy ears.

Mini Lops can be good pets, but think of them a little like terriers. A terrier may be a small dog, but it needs a great deal of space to run in. Even though your mini lop may be small, he or she will probably need more space and exercise than a larger rabbit. Mini lops are also known for being more temperamental in general, so be prepared to spend some time with your mini lop before he or she becomes the cuddly little critter you had hoped for. (Disclaimer: This is one of those times where people disagree. Some people find Mini Lops to be the most charming creatures on planet earth and claim that they love to be handled and to love and snuggle on you. My personal experience is that they will leave scars if you annoy them too much, but as always, there are exceptions to every breed standard, and to every supposition.)

What I can tell you for sure is that Mini lops should be around 1.5 kgs or 3.3 pounds when fully grown.

If you intend to show your Mini Lop, you should be looking for the following characteristics:

Head: Bright eyes and nice floppy ears are the most noticeable features of the Mini Lop head. The eyes should not be too close together, and should be nice and large. The ears should hang nicely, and the inner part of the ear should not be visible when the rabbit is at rest.

Body: The body should be round and compact. These are strong little rabbits, and should look it. Their coat should be dense and not too long or too short.

Faults: The Mini Lop should be well furred, bare pads of the feet are considered a fault. Ears that are carried poorly or lopsidedly (ironically enough) are also considered a fault. A rabbit that does not have a nicely shaped head and 'crown' (the area between the bunny's ears) is also considered to be faulty.

Additional note: Many people cross breed mini lops to create various versions of the mini lop. For example, a Cashmere Lop can be crossed with a Mini Lop to create a Cashmere Mini Lop. The mini lop have proved to be a wildly popular choice for both breeders and pet keepers alike.

      Mini Lops and Holland Lops ARE NOT one in the same , they are two separate breeds.....check the American Rabbits Breeders ASssociation ,Inc. "official guide Book"......or web site...www.arba.net ......orNew York's...www.nyrcba.com....we raise Holland Lops and the much bigger French Lops....www. eurekas rabbits.piczo .com(need to work on our picture taking ,,.Most don't do justice to the rabbit....oh,....)

      In the UK, a Holland Lop is known as a Mini Lop. This article is about Mini Lops, however I have entitled the article Holland Lop as well for the benefit of American readers. Or perhasps for their confusion. Thanks for the links anyway, very useful for other readers :)

      These rabbits are so cute and so cuddly. Two sisters are my class pets. I bunnysitted them for the summer. One's white and gray; the other is white and caramel. My class loves them. We take them out during quiet reading time. If you want to get a bunny, get a mini lop ear! They're very friendly and great for kids. It's hard not to pay attention to them. Their names are Eyeshadow and Fluffy.(Astrid, second grade)

      PS You have to get a pet bunny. And also, get a mini lop ear!

      I have the most handsome Cashmere Lop. I got him through a friend from a breeder who abandoned him as he wasn't like any of his brothers and sisters who were all white shorthaired minilops. My boy came to me matted and unkept and a very sad boy. A lot of painstaking combing and clipping and he emerged the most beautiful Cashmere Lop who we all love to bits.

      Dear "Scooter" is even loved by my two dogs, three cats and a mini guinea pig.

      I adore the mini lop and would like to have one but I would like to know a few things first.

      Pricing. It is extremely important I am able to, first, afford one and, secondly, afford to give him/her what he/she needs: good food/treats/bedding/vet cost/grooming cost/etc.

      Also, do they get along with other pets in the house such as a yorkie and cat? I'm not very worried about Timber, our yorkie who has been with us for nine years. It's the cat that concerns me. He is sweet as can be but very playful.

      Thank you for any and all information.

      Rabbits, in general, if not fixed can become territorial and aggressive. My rabbit used to be aggressive and bite until I got her spayed and now she is a love. The cost of a rabbit depends on where you get it from. If you get it from a breeder, price varies, it usually depends on show quality, breed quality, but the cheapest is getting one just as a pet. If you go to a shelter or rescue the cost maybe a little more, but the rabbit will be fixed, which is a huge cost. Because rabbits are exotics, not many vets handle them so you have to find a vet that knows rabbits and generally they cost more. Good food is plain pellets made of Timothy hay so you must look at the ingredients. They should also have access to timothy hay 24/7. They can have romaine lettuce, but not iceburg lettuce. I don't know about grooming because I am able to do all that with my rabbit without having to take her to a groomer/vet. Rabbits live comfortably in 55 degrees farenheit but will be okay in 75, it is best to keep them indoors or give them a place to hide outdoors because they can give themselves heart attacks if a predator tries to get at them, they can also die of heat stroke. No wire bottom cages either, it's the easiest, but it really hurts their feet.

      ok me again thx for the other answers they helped so much ok so here's the plan im getting the holland lop from a breader for $50 im getting him at 3 weeks so im gonna train him to use the litter box what should i put in the box

      # 2 what's the best bedding for holland lops and i mean the best and what should i stay away from i called countless vets but they don't have any good answers and what should i stay away from that i put in there litter box again and what's the best newspapper?

      #3 the thing i heard about fixing them is that if you get them young enough that you can teach them not to be agresive and with the litter box they wont spray as much i don't have another bunny to mate or fight with so should i still get it fixed or should i wait when i get it and see how his behaivor is as he gets older cuz reamber im getting him at 3 weeks well thx byby

      I adopted a one-year-old pedigree, registered Holland Lop doe from a breeder who was giving her away since she refused to breed. My experience based on her is that they are terrors! We have all been bitten and she wants nothing to do with any of us. To attempt to clean her cage is a matter of risking lots of pain and bleeding skin. I also have an altered Holland Dwarf buck who is a really intelligent,lovable charmer, a 4-month old Flemish Giant doe who is a real clown to watch and a timid 2-month old Satin.

      I'll take ten of any of these breeds over another Holland Lop any day of the week! Worst adoption I ever made!!!!

      My daughter is 12 and my son 14 and they have and breed holland lops we have a 1 1/2 yellow lab very calm she likes to lick them and we do not leave them alone. They must be 8 weeks old before taking them home and they should be taken from their mom before taking them home. They should be 9 months before breeding them and they will mate before then if they are not seperated. We have one older buck that the more he is breed the more aggressive he is. We have one young buck that is so gental but he is only 10 months old. I have heard that bucks are more gental then girl. Good luck

      lopsnhops rabbitry 6 years ago

      This is mainly written for pancakes4ever

      to answer your questions...

      1. the rabbit will most likely get along with your dog if the dog gets along with the rabbit. you should take precaution when introducing them in case either is not OK with the other one. your rabbit should generally be fine once it is used to being handled and what not and dogs usually get the idea when an animal is a pet

      2. a rabbit needs to be a minimum of five weeks, but a responsible breeder lets them go at around 6-8 weeks. never buy a rabbit that is less than five weeks.

      3. if you plan to get a girl and boy they will mate. but the female will be territorial and most likely, rip the male apart. it is horrible. breeding is a big responsibility though i have bred my mini lops and plan to have two more litters of kits next summer with both my Holland and mini lops, but back to the question. if you plan to breed, you will need three cages, 1 for the kittens (babies, also called kits), one for the buck (boy), and one for the doe (girl). The rabbits should both be at least six months old and healthy. Take the doe to the buck's cage, never the buck to the doe's because of territorial issues. leave them together for about 15 minutes, but keep an eye on them to unsure mating and no fighting.if they fight, take them away from each other immediately. if the mating is a success, the doe will kindle (give birth) in approximately a month. if you want to know if she is pregnant prior to kindling, ask an experienced breeder, such as the one you bought your rabbits from, to palpate the doe. when the doe is giving birth, do not try to watch, as she may kill or eat the kits. do not handle them unless the doe is in distracted with a treat, etc. remove any dead kittens from the nest and make sure that she is feeding them. if she is, their tummies should be nice and round. also, i forgot, place a wooden nest box in her cage a few days prior to kindling. make sure she has plenty of straw, hay, etc. to line the nest with. when the babies are 6 weeks old or older, they can be sold. never leave the buck in the doe's cage in case he eats the kits. don't ask pet store workers these questions they are not informed with the right information. you should also get your rabbits from a breeder to ensure they are healthy, purebred, etc. you can also get them tattooed for showing by a breeder and you can get their pedigree.

      4. you should be careful neutering a rabbit because if they are in a bad mood at the time they could stay like this permanently.

      joining a 4H club is a good thing to do to learn more about rabbits. I am twelve and i live in pennsylvania. i am in the Montgomery County 4H Furry Friends Rabbit and Cavy (guinea pig) Club. it has been a wonderful experience and i now know more about rabbits than most would imagine of a twelve year old. every year the 4H has a fair which is definetley (sorry i spelled that wrong) the highlight of the year. we have a three day two night sleep over where all the clubs come together and show their animals, etc. we have a show with ribbons and all that stuff and it is awesome i have won some pretty nice prizes with my mini lops. we meet once a month (our first meeting of the year is tomorrow). you will learn A TON of rabbit showing stuff and other rabbit info. Please join it is a wonderful opportunity and experience.

      Hope that helps!

      Theirs no point in disputing the temprement of different breeds iv had several breeds of bunny over a period of 15 yrs and found them all a pleasure apart from one dutch doe i think temperement is very dependent on the commitment you have to your rabbits they bite if they are scared so building up a trusting bond with your rabbit before expecting it to be perfect!

      Holland lops usually stop breeding around the age of 3 years.but if your rabbit doesn't have papers don't breed it if you breed it there could be a number of problems with the babies.

      Hey everybody! I own Mini Lops and breed them true that they are super cute, but they can be a little mean. I also show. A good show Mini Lop should have ROUND BODY, AN OVER-BITE, UNDER-EYE SHADOWS, FOUR TOE-NAILS/TOES. These are just the basics- the regulations go much further. What I meant by mean was that they can scratch- so before thinking that they are all nice and sweet I personally think that they scratch the most and will def. leave scars. Considering that I have a meat rabbit that wouldn't even think of scratching me. But the cuteness pretty much covers it up. Mini Lops should weigh between 3-6.5 LBS. If you can't handle them- don't buy them. As for people who say wire bottom cages hurt their feet- don't say anything about something you don't know. Rabbit breeders raise them on wire cages. Thanks!!! Love,

      The Rabbits

      I don't know how it is in the UK, but in America the mini lop and holland lop are two completely different breeds of rabbit. Like a yorkshire terrior and a tea-cup yorkshire terrior. They're based off the same thing, but they are not the same. A mini lop is nearly twice the size as a holland. A hollands max weight is around 4 lbs but usually in the 3 lb range and a mini is normally about 6 lbs. This is very noticeable once you've owned both. And in my experience of 3 hollands and 1 mini lop, they have all been incredibly sweet. The girls are just more skittish. But if treated good holland males are incredible pets who LOVE to be pet and given lots of attention to.

      Does this make sense?

      I don't mean to be rude, but a holland lop and a mini lop are two different breeds. Mini lops get to be around 6 pounds and hollands get to be around 3 or 4 pounds. The mini is about twice the size of the holland

      To all fellow Americans, please note that since moving from the USA to australia the holland lop is not "our" mini lop!!! The uk and Australia call holland lops mini lips - they are the same thing in those two countries! Yes, our holland lop and our mini lops are different, but once again, in Australia and uk what we call holland lops are in fact the Australian and uk "mini lop" please don't abuse them and perhaps do a little research first!!! I know this as I raised holland lops back in the USA and now had to get use to calling these little holland lops mini lops!!!

      Hollands and mini pops are not the same. Hollands are smaller and more temperamental. I would recommend a mini lop any day to a beginner, but Hollands are pretty good too. Mini lops are about 5 to 6 pounds while Hollands are 3 to 4. This is correct in America, but I am not sure about the UK. If you want to buy a Holland or a Mini, I would look at ARBA's standards to make sure, as the two are occasionally mixed up. Personally, the Hollands are slightly cuter, but the mini's outstanding personality makes up for that.

      Actually,

      Mini lops and Holland lops are different breeds! Ironically Mini lops are big and Holland lops and super tiny. Just wanted to point that out.

      Mini lops are not also known as holland lops...mini lops are at least 2 pounds larger! Holland lops are the smallest of the lops, and are "dwarfed". Mini lops actually tend to be more lazy than most breeds!

      My mini lop coco luvs to be around our bunny george who is a total different breed than her. He is of the silver rabbit breed. They get along perfectly. However, coco does not like to be pet that's much and does not like to be played with. Its almost like she is scared but we don't know why. We show them lots of attention and she only likes to around George. They are the perfect match. What should I do about coco? We have never caused these bunnies any harm. George luvs to be pet 24/7. He luvs being around people. Whenever coco sees anyone that is within 10 feet, she will run and hide and go to where we cannot see or get to her. What is this a sign of?

      My 7 week old mini lop is trying to mate my 5 month old female. Please tell me he is not capable of producing sperm being so young. Planned on breeding them but not yet. 31 days puts ne in the middle of a 7 day hospital stay. I am stressing.

      Actually @Michelle check, it is possible. My bunny George is one month older than CoCo and at four months old, he was able to get coco pregnant and she was only three months old. Unfortunately though, the baby was too small to survive because the bunnies were so young. The baby did not have enough time to develope. When we took them to the vet, they said the bunny wasn't able to form fully and was too tiny because if the young age of our rabbits. I would say to separate them until u are able to get them spade and neutered.

      When reading about the many varieties of domestic rabbits, I have always seen information about Holland Lops appear under the heading "Holland Lop." I refer to the overviews of the 'Most Popular House Rabbit Breeds,' typically found as a section, or a chapter (titled along the lines of, "Which Rabbit Breed is Right for you?"), in modern books about caring for house rabbits.

      On the other hand, I have always found information about Mini Lops under the heading, "Mini Lop" (or, less commonly, "Miniature Lop," or, "Mini Lop-Ear"), and categorized as a separate, different breed, than Holland Lops.

      I've not seen the two names, "Holland Lop," and, "Mini Lop," used interchangeably (excluding this). It seems quite odd to me that anyone would use "Holland Lop," & "Mini Lop," interchangeably, given that it is widely known, among people with house rabbits, that the "Mini Lop," is of German origin, not of Nederland.

      If it is of any help to know, I live in the States-

      however-

      please note, that due to the general absence of very many up-to-date, accurate, comprehensive, books on house rabbit care, written and published in the US, at this time (March 2017), about half of the literature on rabbits that I've read was written and published in the UK (or, on occasion, Ireland).

      I'm given to understand (as I was not alive at the time), that the keeping of house rabbits as pets only really just got started in the late 1970s. This was followed by a rather slow, but steady, increase in the popularity of keeping pet house rabbits in the US, through the 1980s and most of the 1990s. The keeping of rabbits as pets remained quite rare throughout this time. Only in the early 2000s did keeping rabbits as companion animals come to be considered merely uncommon, as opposed to very rare, in the United States.

      The late 2000s, and up to the present, has seen massive exponential growth in the popularity of pet house rabbits in the States- even so, rabbits are still considered somewhat unusual pets. For example, as specified by state laws in the US, domestic pet house rabbit companion animals are classified as an, "Exotic Species," type of household companion animal.

      This simply means that modern, complete, educational literature for taking care of house rabbits is sparse in the US (unfortunately, so are MANY rabbit care & housing supplies). Therefore, I found it important to supplement my reference materials, with books ordered as [Expensive-to-Ship!!!] imports from the UK. Obviously, keeping house rabbits is much more common in the UK than the States, and has been done for a much longer time. Naturally, the result is that the UK has more modern, informative, care guide books about pet rabbits.

      It may be worth mentioning: quite recently, based on long term studies at American universities [such as at my own MIZZOU. or University of Missouri, before I transfered to Chicago], it has been proposed & well-received, that people with pet rabbits may submit for case-by-case consideration, that their pet rabbits gain the rights of Service Animals.

      Based on the unexpected, but very clear, results analyses from the universities' research studies, the serious consideration of granting Service Animal rights to house rabbits, is specifically intended to provide the opportunity for girls & women with anxiety-causing mental health issues, who are also bunny caretakers. Long-term study results, from numerous accredited, diverse sources, unanimously revealed an extremely strong correlation between improved mental health among girls & women with anxiety disorders, and frequent social interaction with house rabbits.

      Caretaking, & general, calm, playful, and restful, social activity of house rabbits, by girls & women, have revealed unprecedented positive influence on the mental health of girls & women- to the extent that girls & women with anxiety disorders may submit Service Animal Status applications for their pet rabbits. If approved, rabbits with Service Animal Status would be granted broader rights protections, & would nullify mandated separation of women & girls, from their rabbits, during emergencies/evacuation, and certain other situations which might cause undue anxiety & stress for girls & women in the States.
