He does have a nice head! I don't know a TON about bunnies yet but I'm learning! I can't wait to begin breeding and showing myself! And the 7+ months until then give me LOTS of time to research and decide what I want to concentrate on.

One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...

with Hollands, that square head is what you're looking for. Momma has nice confirmation as well, her head is a little too "round" though.

Ours was a blue tort, one of my favorite colors.

Not that I agree with breeding or really showing, but your little gem is gorgeous!
I think it's pretty hard to sex them for a few months, even then it's tricky. It took my cousin and I about an hour to sex Acacia when I got her!! The slit vs. the non-slit is so minute you really need to compare it to the rest of the litter mates.

I would rather you choose to make him/her a 10+ year pet rather than breed for reasons which would spiral off your original topic but...

without breeders, there wouldn't be any pets left. There's nothing wrong with breeding responsibly, and breeding for show is one of the best options out there.

Be picky about rehoming, so any babies aren't as likely to end up as shelter pets.

Oh... Breeding responsibly is fine. It's a small number of caring individuals. THEN you have your hundreds of thousands of people who want a male and female anything to make babies to watch the miracle of birth or some nonsense. It generates into millions of animals put to death each year. No, I would rather engage in an all out ban on breeding (this includes proper breeding) until numbers go down and people start owning up to what we did to nature. Having fancy pants breeds is just a status, I would sacrifice that to put the numbers down.

that's only because people are stupid. banning breeding entirely is just too extreme. A lot of people enjoy breeding for shows, and it helps some kids learn to be responsible.

If you're going to ban breeding animals till the numbers go down, it's like saying people can't breed until all of the orphanages and foster care is empty. That also means no one breeding bettas either.
