If you notice the Tricolor, my guess is that you breed for color.
If you notice the muzzle, my guess is you are big on breeding for type.
You see, for Velveteens, color is only worth 4 points in our current standard. Yes, some coloring is STUNNING, however, how good will that coloring look on a rabbit with poor type? If you’re a pet breeder, then more power to you, but if you are bettering the breed, please don’t impulse buy a rabbit to breed for color. Breed for good shoulders, heads, HQ, and so on. Yes, color is worth small points but perfect the bigger points first before worrying about colors. Think about it this way: how beautiful will your barn be if it’s foundation is crumbled? Paint can’t fix foundation.
It breaks my heart when I see “breeders” advertising their rabbits for large amounts of money when the rabbit has horrible type. “Cool markings, blue eyes, etc - $150.” For people looking to breed that haven’t done much research, unfortunately that type of ad is very eye-catching because they truly believe they are buying something unique to breed. (Keep in mind, proper rabbit breeding never brings in profit, welcome to bunny-debt! 😉)
In every breed, there are hundreds of breed-specific people that are experienced and willing to help someone new. Find your breed, research it, find a mentor, figure out a breeding plan, THEN begin to purchase your stock. But above all, PLEASE, build your barn before you paint it.
