"King of the Fancy"

The Belgian Hare was once a breed booming in popularity. It is now considered one of the rarer breeds and is listed by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy as "threatened." Belgian Hares come in a standard rufus red color which is ticked in black with a wavy pattern, there are unrecognized varieties of Belgian Hares in existence such as the black and tan variety. Belgian Hares were developed by crossing domestic rabbits with their ancestor the wild European Rabbit. Hares are known for their elegant body shape, curious personalities and slender physiques.

Hares tend to require special housing such as solid flooring over wire and taller hutches in order to develop correctly. Hares can have large litters with 11-13 not being uncommon, average litter size is 6-8. Hares are usually good mothers although extra fur may need to be added to their nests during cold periods.

Belgian Hares are a full arched breed and are posed when shown; their pose is very elegant as they are posed on their tip toes with their heads carried high which exemplifies their extreme length and sweeping arch starting at the base of the neck all the way through the hindquarters.

Max Weight: 9.5 lbs.
