Why so blue baby?

Blue is one of my favorite colors in fuzzy lops. When I was able to buy my first couple I was beyond ecstatic! Leslie Hobbs (Hobbs Habbitry) was the first to let me get ahold of the color and I couldn't wait to get my very own! I don't necessarily "specialize" in the color, but I'm working on them a lot. I don't usually see very many on the show tables anymore, but I'm trying to change that. They can be a challenging variety with possible scattered white hairs and white toenails. You have to pay close attention to the dilution of the blue color as you don't want it to be too light either. I like a nice very deep blue color. Above are some photos of some current blues I have... shown as head shots so you can see the thick fuzzy faces!

Viper & Tulsa

The Summer is feeling practically over. I can say that I am very happy for the bunnies as I know they will appreciate the milder temperatures... but I have hardly got a chance to enjoy the hot weather myself. I think I've only been swimming twice! Ah well, I love the Fall.

The Violet baby I mentioned in my previous post is around 8 weeks old now. He is named Starlite's Viper. See pic above! He has been growing beautifully. I bet he is going to have a very nice dense coat like Violet does. His sire, Hobbs Oh Da Man, is going through his first major moult right now but is looking like he is going to come nicely out of it and look like a whole new bunny!
Lil'Bit Farm's Tulsa was feeling photogenic today so I have lots of photos to share of him:
