Siamese Sable Martin Sable

History

The Sable / Martin Sable was created in several different countries at roughly the same time. In the UK the breeder D.W. Irving crossed Himalayans with Chinchilla rabbits in the early 20th century. These Sable rabbits had darker fur on their noses paws and tails, but they didn’t have as much of a contrast as the Himalayan. Sable / Martin Sables were shown at a show in 1920. They were not recognised, but has since been recognised as the Siamese or Marten Sable.

In Germany Emil Thomsen from Stellingen produced a similar rabbit by crossing Chinchillas, blue Havanas, Viennas, Belgian Hares, and Thüringers. A french breeder, M. Fraineau, also created a similar rabbit in France crossing Chinchillas and albino rabbits. Fraineau showed his creation at a major show in Paris in 1925. Across the Atlantic Otto Brock, a breeder from California, produced the Sable rabbit by selectively breeding from Chinchilla rabbits. He chose to breed from kits that had the Sable markings.

Sable rabbits weigh between 2.5 and 3.5kg, and have an elongated body. This breed has graduated colouring, with darker fur on its nose, paws and tail. Its dark eyes appear red at certain angles.
