Transcript of Dwarf Hotot

Dwarf Hotot By Rianna Ryan History of the Dwarf Hotot The original home of the dwarf Hotot is Germany. It was developed in the East and West in the late 70s. The western breeder tried to develop the Hotot marked Netherland Dwarf by crossing a REW with a black Netherland Dwarf. This resulted in a Dutch marked rabbit. When bred back to a black Netherland Dwarf it produced a Dwarf Hotot with black ears and spots. More breeding with these off-springs resulted in a true Dwarf Hotot Breeders in the two parts took
different ways to try and develop
a Dwarf Hotot rabbit. The east breeder meanwhile bred a REW Netherland Dwarf doe to a Blanc de Hotot buck This resulted with a Hotot marked kit, which weighed 3.55 lbs, and had ears of 7 cm. at five months of age. The breeder continued with this buck and the original doe and bred to other dwarfs which resulted in bigger sized Dwarf Hotots. Soon both came out as breeders and began to exchange stock, which gave better size and strength to them. The first show they introduced the Dwarf Hotot was at an ARBA convention in Syracuse, New York in 1981. Their second show was at a Seattle convention in 1982. Their third show was held at Colorado springs in 1983. They were accepted by 1984 into the ARBA book of standards. The Dwarf Hotot is also known as “eyes of the fancy”. Fun Facts They require a smaller living area than other breeds. If a Hotot is wounded, the fur might come back black. The maximum weight of a Dwarf Hotot is 3 lbs. The ideal weight is 2.5 lbs. The eyes should be a dark brown The fur should be soft and dense The body should be small and compact, with no visible neck The ears should be well furred, and should also balance with the head and body
The body should be wide from shoulder to hips, with well rounded hindquarters The two colors of the Dwarf Hotot eye bands are black and chocolate Dwarf Hotots are really genetically black rabbits that have a "bleaching" gene that turns most of the fur white except for the eye-band.
