Fuzzy lop VS. Holland lop:

                                      < Back to Newsletter Home            <Back to Head of the Fancy Page1
A Fuzzy Lop has an ideal weight
Bucks 3 1/2 pounds  (3 pound 8 ounce) 
Does  3 3/4 pounds  (3 pounds 12 ounce).
The Holland lop has no ideal weight. 
 
The fuzzy lop standards are very clear that Fuzzy lop ears are supposed to be to 1 inch below the jaw line.

The trend in fuzzy lops are to breed ear length as short as possible, resulting in many fuzzy lops with ears at the jaw line or not even reaching the jaw line. 

The Fuzzy lop standard also says the ears must balance with the head. 
If ears are under the 1/2 below the jaw line is that considered not balancing with the head? 
Holland lops allow a maximum 1 inch below the jaw line.  

It doesn't mention how short an ear is allowed to be.

Slipped crown, and crown related problems (like folded ears) all fall under EARS  for a total of 1-10 points.
Fuzzy lop standards don't have section for Crown. 
The crown is mentioned very little in the fuzzy lop standards.  

A Holland lop EARS are 1-10 points and they have an additional 1-8 points for CROWN.
This totals 18 points awarded for crown and ears.
 
The Fuzzy lop head when viewed from the side is supposed to be round with a flat face and then continue to round.
A Holland lops face should round at the top of the head, flattens at the eyes and muzzle then continues to round (many HL judges call this curvature to the head).

Some Holland lop breeders are concerned that many of the top placing Holland lops are showing flat fuzzy lop type faces and a lack of curvature.

 Head set on a Fuzzy lop is midway. Head set for a Holland lop is to be high and close to the shoulders.
 
   
Standards under Ear: 
The top of a Fuzzy lop's ear is supposed to be slightly flattened.

Under Crown: The Holland lops desire a lot of width in crown in all directions, since the front to back width of a Holland lop's crown determines how open the ear is, the standard calls for the ear to be fully open.
