Tor View Lops
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.
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.

Keith is proving to be a very useful Buck having fathered some lovely youngsters.
Trent is bred from San & Rifle
He has been a little monkey to get to sit. I think he may have got the feel of it now.
So we will see what he can do at the shows this Summer.
Bury Banks Blossom Bury Banks Chip
We have had a lovely litter from these 2 that produced us 2 rather nice Does. Bonnie & Dawn,that have now gone on to have litters themselves. Producing us a lovely Sooty Fawn Doe Rosie & a handsome young Buck called Hugh.
We have been looking for a Sooty Fawn Butterfly, for a long time to add to our lines. we came across this young man advertised for sale at a show. He is just what we wanted he can't be shown himself due to his putty nose but we love him. Rossendale's Oscar below is his son the 1st of many we hope.

This little man was very successful has an U/5 He managed to go Best Lop at Nidderdale Agricultural Show in September 2015.
