French Lop Rabbit at the County Fair

It’s the first of the month: Rabbit, rabbit! (as the saying goes to have good luck for the rest of the month)!

At the county fair’s animal exhibits yesterday (June 30), I observed this French Lop rabbit all alone in a huge enclosure with lots of room for it to roam. However, when I took this picture, it didn’t seem to be in the mood to play. It was fixated on the wall!

Large rabbit, but calm and docile in temperament

According to the Lop Rabbit Club of America, the French Lop rabbit breed resulted from a cross between the English Lop and the Butterfly rabbit of France. The French Lop rabbit was first bred around 1850 in France by a Frenchman named Condenier.
