I know ! She does look a little strange with the different colored ears, doesn't she ? LOL ! She's actually the same color around the eye area as well. I tried looking up what color she might be when one of the forum members wanted to know if there were any sites that had all the breeds of rabbits & there were two sites posted........I couldn't find her color at either site :o( So, who knows ? Maybe she's not a pure English Angora......I mean, we didn't get any papers like we did with Shadow. She claimed Mattie was a full-blooded English Angora, and if she was planning on showing her, she would've had to have papers I would think.........
The whole thing just doesn't make any sense to me and probably never will, so I try not to think about and dwell on the condition she was in when we got her because she is enjoying life now and that's all that matters :o))
I can't wait for her fur to grow back..........it's already starting to come in pretty nice :o)
Well, they do come in "broken" colors as well as solid colors - one of my rescue groups rescued 4 of them and the two females were white with brown spots if I remember correctly and I'm fairly certain they were purebreds. I think the different colored ears and around the eyes are very unique and lovely.
The "brokens" may not be accepted by the standards but they are still angora's.
But your bunny just has points of color like on his ears - don't know if that's acceptable either - not that it matters :~)
Nope, it doesn't matter, Sarita :o) 'cause she's beautiful just the way she is ! Since she was so messed up when we got her, I couldn't tell if she had any other colors in her fur or not.......like you said "spots". I'm kinda thinkin' she doesn't, though, because the fur that's growing in now doesn't have any traces of other colors besides white.
My goodness, 4 of them rescued ! I can't even imagine ! What shape were their coats in, do you remember ? How are they doing now ? I would absolutely LOVE to see pictures because I have really come to fall in love with the Angoras
bless your heart for rescuing those bun buns! they're beautiful
Awwww you guys........I really didn't do anything any of you wouldn't have done since we are all bunny lovers here :o)) Hubby just happened to be in the right place at the right time & it was "meant to be".
I just wish he would've told me sooner to alleviate the extra days the poor things had to spend with that girl, but it all turned out well & we are very happy and feel blessed that these two Angels have graced us with their presence :o)
Our hearts are truly overflowing
