[ Izzy and Hunter and their rabbits they won with on May 1st , 2011]
Welcome to Willner's Wabbitry. We are a small rabbitry in central Minnesota, raising Mini Lops, Dwarf Hotots, and Netherland Dwarfs. We have been raising Mini Lops since 2009, Dwarf Hotots since 2011, and Netherlands since Spring of 2012. So come along and join us on our adventure in rabbits, we're glad you came to visit.
We started with 2 Mini Lop X does that came from the internet. Then we started attending shows and bought purebred, pedigreed rabbits. We now have 12 Mini Lop does, 3 Mini Lop bucks, and lots of babies. Our Dwarf Hotots started off with one bred doe from Mindt's Busy Bunnies. We kept the two does out of her first litter. Then we started looking for a few more rabbits and were grateful to come across a great deal from Thunder Hill's Rabbitry in Iowa and were able to add 20 more Dwarf Hotots to our rabbitry. I was looking for a breed that could be the kid's only and we came across the Netherland Dwarfs. We got lucky and got two very friendly brood does and a spunky show buck. The kids are having fun with their new friends.
Our rabbits are loved by our 14 year old, 8 year old, 6 year old, and myself. They are handled daily and are a part of our family. We hope that your new addition will become part of your family as well.
