well i have a small hobby farm raising rabbits. i’ve seen about a dozen die and their lil lives go to waste. all my rabbits are healthy. after finding out there was no veterinary recourse for me i decided to start harvesting sick and injured rabbits. with winter on it’s way, snowball has already stopped eating and was listless. he wouldn’t make it through winter so we decided to put him on the table rather than see another lil life gone to waste.

is there any special information i should know about lionhead rabbits?

1 Comment »



They're just like normal rabbits but they are half shorthaired and half long haired. They have a mane, which is long hair, and their face is short hair. The rest of their bodies are long haired. You look after them just like any other rabbit but you have to brush their fur once in a while like a week or something.

are lionhead rabbits good for show rabbits?

4 Comments »

i heard on one of my other ? that lionheads are good show rabbits then some one else said there not help!!!!!
some one said you have to own a nother bread to with them is that true

I was the one who answered that they were not good show rabbits, and if you read the rest of the post I also explained why. The lionhead is NOT a breed of rabbit. As of now, people are developing the features and trying to get the ARBA to recognize the lionhead as an official breed of rabbit. I would not get into lionheads unless you know quite a bit about genetics and are willing to go through much trial and error for a breed that you can't even really show with the 4H. If you like lionheads, but are interested in show your rabbits, I would suggest raising Jersey Woolies. They are as close to a lionhead as you can get, and they are a recognized breed that comes in many beautiful colors.

What I said earlier was that, if you choose to raise lionheads, you should also get another breed of rabbit. This is because, with a lionhead, you would have to show them as a mixed breed rabbit through the 4H, which does not make them eligible for any major awards. If you want to breed lionheads, I would suggest getting a breed that is already recognized by the ARBA so that you can actually have some hope of doing well in the breed class.

I have seen from experience. Unless you go out and buy a VERY high quality animal, some run of the mill mixed breed will beat it. This past year, at my 4H fair, I had a Flemish Giant/New Zealand cross that I was showing as a mixed breed. There was also a kid who was showing her lionheads. Long story short, my mixed breed beat all of her lionheads because they are not being judged on an actual breed standard.

Heed my warning or not, what ever breed of rabbit you choose is your decision alone.

Any problems raising a rabbit in an apartment?

7 Comments »

I'm thinking of getting a rabbit for a 4-year old? Any problems with possible allergies, such as skin irritation or asthma? How often would the cage and apartment need to be cleaned? Do rabbits need to be bathed? Do they need to be taken outside like dogs or can they be raised strictly at home (in an apartment)? One last item: if the family goes away for the weekend, can we just leave food out for the rabbit for three days?

When will my lionhead rabbits mane stop growing?

2 Comments »

My little guys about 6 or 7 mounths old. does that mean his mane is done growing or will it grow some more? It’s not too long but when I was looking at it today it looks longer on the top? Is he done growing or will his mane get longer as he gets older??
A lionhead’s mane quits growing when he’s about 8 months old… then, if the mane is pulled out or if he sheds it out, sadly, normal fur will grow in its place… this is the one genetic “Kink” in the makeup of the lionhead… we have not found out a way to get them to keep their manes… if he has hair on his flanks or hips, he will lose it as he gets older… Hope this helps…

Epilepsy in lionhead rabbit?

2 Comments »

This is Sirius, my lionhead rabbit. I read somewhere that lionhead rabbits have epilepsy. Sirius never had a seizure before. However, when he plays, he often does those little jerks when jumping. I wonder if that could be epilepsy.
