Sold Out.

Two months ago I sent this email/announcement out:

Hey everyone,

I’ve got some big news to share from Hoppin’ Herd of Hares, so here goes….

Today, a big decision has been made. It’s taken a lot of thought and I’ve been thinking it through for the past few weeks. But, I have finally decided that I am selling out of my Mini Lops. I know this will take many by surprise and many will be disappointed to hear this. But, life changes and although years ago I never thought I would sell out, the time has come.

Over the past 12 years, I have learned so much, met many friends, and thoroughly enjoyed helping all the youth and new breeders over the years – whether it was online or in person.

When I started working with the Mini Lops, I had to search high and low for chocolates or any colored Mini Lop for that matter. When I finally got the first chocolates, their type left a lot to be desired. It’s been years of hard work, but today, they are able to compete with the “big boys” and win on the show tables. I am very thankful to God that He gave me the skill, knowledge and understanding of how to work with the genetics and improve this breed.

My website will stay active and I will keep the color guides up, as well as the health & mini lop body type pages. 


Now, that day has come. 2 weeks ago, the last of my Mini Lops went to their homes.  Our Mini Lops went to fantastic breeders in Oklahoma, Louisiana, Texas, Iowa, Illinois and Kansas.
