It is quite obvious by now that love we Holland Lops as if they were our own children. Most people gravitate to them naturally because of their floppy ears, petite stature and (If you grew up in the 1990's) you get a bit of nostalgia reminiscent of Thumper from the Disney movie "Bambi". However, that alone does not always mean that makes one breed the best choice versus another, and when it comes to the pet market as a whole you never simply want to judge a book by its cover. So, lets take a deeper dive into Holland Lops origins and map out why they shine brighter than the rest.
The Holland Lop originated in the early 1950's and were a combination between two breeds that were over sized on one end and too small on other. Overtime they became a picture of perfection, and naturally the most popular pet breed throughout the United States. Ranging in size from 2-4 pounds, easy enough to comfortably hold for all ages, while large enough to live a long sustained life of 10-12 years, they fit the mold that other breeds could only hope to achieve.
Perhaps most amazing however, is Holland and Mini Lops were created with the mindset that these wonderful animals would be loved by their human counterparts. In turn, their temperament and yearning for human interaction is second to none!
Next, is the deal breaker of all else. The rabbits HEALTH (which is in all caps for that reason). As an owner you want to feel confident that your bunny will live a long happy life. Being overall easy to care for, with the proper cage set up and grooming, the bunnies will consistently hit the 10 year mark and beyond, which is what we found in our experience as well! Lops carry no hereditary diseases such as blindness, which is found in animals like Golden Retrievers and can be extremely hard to differentiate if the gene pattern affects the particular animal. It is always a sigh of relief to not have that issue in the back of your mind.
With calm, loving personalities and their natural yearning for human companionship Lops check all the boxes when it comes to confidently taking the leap to make one your own. Thus making it fairly obvious why the pet owner world gravitates to them so much aside from their overall appearance.
