Holland Lop History
The Holland Lop was developed in the Netherlands and gained recognition by the Netherlands’ governing rabbit council in 1964. A dutch breeder by the name Adriann De Cock is creditted with developing the breed from 1949 - 1964 (which is when the breed was recognised). Essentially De Cock selectively crossed and backcrossed Netherland Dwarfs with French Lops until the desirable size and traits were consistent.
The breed’s popularity exploded and demand far exceeded the supply which made it hard to keep the breed standard at the desired 1.5 kg that De Cock aimed for. The breed is still popular today thanks to its small size and quirky temperament.

Sweet Little Bunnies - Jill,
Holland Lops are gentle and lovable. They do crazy jumps at times and love to play. If taken care of, they will live between 2-8 years of age. Do not give them alfalfa hay. Give them Timothy Hay. They get only 1/4 cup of pellets. Make sure they have fresh water. Do not feed them most of the store "treats" as they are not good for them. A 1" piece of banana and they'll love you forever! Blueberries, strawberries or the strawberry tops, lettuce (not iceberg) are also great treats. This is why they aren't garden friendly. Oh, and they love dandelions! They shed and should be combed to keep them from eating too much hair and ending up with gastritis, which can kill them. Lops do like company, but make sure it's 2 females or 2 males or you'll have many, many, many bunnies!
