Rossendale Mini Lops

Rossendales Hob nob Best in Show May 2009

We started to keep Mini Lops here at Tor View in the early years of our Rabbit journey.


Although the French Lop are & always will be our main Breed. We do enjoy having  Minis here & we do like to take them out to show.


We have had several colours over the years the main colours have always been Sooty Fawn, Beige, Agoutis. more recently we have added Steels.


We have always been working with Blue Eyed White Mini Lops, we have a separate page for more about them why not take a look on there.


Blue Eyed White Mini Lops


During 2010 / 2013 we took a step back from the coloured Mini Lops during this time our son Jason & Daughter in Law Lorraine (Bury Bank Lops) had them they did show them & did very well with them. Also 2 of our Grandchildren  showed for a spell has juniors.

When Jason &  Lorraine had to give up Breeding & Showing there Rabbits due to work commitments a few of them came back here. During the years they kept them they had introduced Steels in to there lines ,something we had not had before. So we decided it would be nice to carry on there work with them. Also we brought the Sooty Fawns Home.
