Legs a win with a
minimum 3 breeders and 5 rabbits with on DQ's
GC Grand Champion; three legs with at least one leg won as a SR.
Must be registered. Therefore a Fuzzy lop with a Holland Lop Can never
become a Grand Champion no matter how many legs they win.
Sr. A rabbit that is at least six months old. To
show a SR. they must be 4 pounds or less.
Jr. A Fuzzy lop that is under six months old, over 1.5 pounds and under
HL Holland lop; a Fuzzy lop with Holland lops in it's pedigree can be shown but not registered
or apply for a Grand Champion certificate. Many of the best fuzzy lops have
Holland in their pedigree.
