Holland Lop History
The Holland Lop was developed in the Netherlands and gained recognition by the Netherlands’ governing rabbit council in 1964. A dutch breeder by the name Adriann De Cock is creditted with developing the breed from 1949 - 1964 (which is when the breed was recognised). Essentially De Cock selectively crossed and backcrossed Netherland Dwarfs with French Lops until the desirable size and traits were consistent.
The breed’s popularity exploded and demand far exceeded the supply which made it hard to keep the breed standard at the desired 1.5 kg that De Cock aimed for. The breed is still popular today thanks to its small size and quirky temperament.
