There’s many different ways to pose this breed, all of which can give it different appearances in how it truly looks.
- Overposing, for example, can make the Velveteen look much more rounded and compact than it truly is.
- Underposing, can make it look like a fuzzy hotdog, creating an elongated topline and flat appearance.
- Even a slight underpose can make the rabbit look totally different.
When posing properly, you must align the front toes underneath the eyes, and the toes on the back feet must be aligned with the front part of the hips. However, with mentioning hips, you also want your peak (high point,) directly above the front part of the hips as well. The rise should start at/near the back of the shoulders. You want to strive for that mandolin (semi-arch) look, not squishing them up like a compact breed or laying them flat like a cylindrical breed.
Pictured is a small example I made trying to explain the differences in posing. A pose can easily make or break an animal.
