    What is the difference between a mini lop and a dwarf lop? I checked some web sites and now I'm confused. I thought a dwarf was smaller than an mini but they seemed to indicate the reverse. Also, I have a kind of large harlequin lop. She is really sweet. Are the smaller lops as sweet or do they have a Netherland dwarf (a little more high strung) personality? I had a Netherland dwarf that snorted at me from the day I got her and lived for 11+ years, snorting at me.

    I understood a mini to be the smallest size.

    Mini lop is a ARBA recignised breed. There is no such dawarf lop. There is the neathy, but no dwarf lops.

    RooMaN,
    What is a neathy? I never heard of it.

    And thanks for the replys. I either want to get a buck to breed with my lop doe or another pair of lops. Lops seem to sell well in my area. Just trying to find out more info before I do. Thanks again.
