I wanted to take a moment to send a big THANK YOU to the owners and operators of Hook's Holland Lops and Hickory Ridge Hollands . Diane and Wendy have been our mentors over the past year, but more importantly, they have become dear friends. I trust them whole-heartedly for advice and information and would like to take this opportunity to fully endorse them as providers of excellent bunny care information.
I haven't been as good about adding information to our website as originally intended, but you can always hop over to their websites to discover a plethora of useful bunny help, in written or video format.
Diane can be found at www.ohiohollandlops.com and she is the Bunny Video Queen. She sold us two of our lovely ladies, Plum Bun and Mango, and is wonderfully creative in producing her unique videos. If she doesn't have a YouTube video about it, it's probably not something you need to know. We have been asked why we don't make our own YouTube channel with our own informational videos. The answer is twofold. 1). Lack of time. 2.) Why reinvent the wheel when Diane has already covered it? We follow her site regularly and always share her site with our customers who may not know of her work. Thank you for all of your help and encouragement, Diane!
Wendy's website is now up and running again after her family's huge cross-country move to Arizona. www.hickoryridgehollands.com is the place to go for well-organized blog posts about all manner of bunny-care topics. While she isn't currently breeding hollands, she wanted her website to be a place full of rabbit care information that was easy to access for new bunny owners and experienced bunny owners alike. She is definitely achieving her goal. We also include Wendy's daughter L. in our thanks. L. has quite a mind for figuring out bunny genetics, and even volunteered to figure out the genotypes of all of the Hot Cross Buns so it would be easy to tell what colors each breeding pair could produce at a glance. She has a unique talent. Wendy and L. make a fabulous team and we are secretly hoping that they begin a breeding program again someday in the not too distant future. :)
Thank you so much, ladies!
Amy is the Big Bunny at the Hot Cross Buns Holland Lop Rabbitry. She manages the furry bunnies as well as her own brood of five kits, with the help of her incredibly patient husband of nineteen years. Hot Cross Hoppenings will be a journal of our adventures in Holland Lop life.
