A Bit of Background
How We Got Started
We fell in love with these wonderful animals and started caring for them and breeding with the help of the children.. Originally we did not plan to operate as a professional Rabbit Breeder, we just wanted wonderful pets for ourselves. However, we became hooked and soon we added a second and then a third one and then on an on to our family. A little fact is that rabbits have a wonderful personality closer to that of a dog/ they bond with their owners and even follow you around the house. They do well litter trained and relate well to other animals such as dogs and cats in general. No wonder rabbits are the 3rd most popular pet in USA. We share our home with 3 kids, 4 dogs and our Holland Lops.
After acquiring a lot of information about the breeding process, we decided to do our part in preserving it, which led to the birth of our Hoppity Loppity Rabbitry here in Parkland, Fl . We obtained our stock from some of the top Holland Lop Breeders in the country to make sure we had clean blood lines and produce gorgeous show quality babies. Since then, we’ve known so much love, joy and excitement! Contact us to find out more.
Holland Lop families are growing.
Next planned Holland Lop litter is due to kindle Mid January and maybe another one later on the month God willing. Happy wishes for these seasoned mammas!
