Of my new girl, I'm no good with these thing's, anybody got any idea's or is she just a general crossbreed? She's got very short fur but it doesn't feel velvety to me so I assume not like a rex:?, She's quite small (around 1.5kg) however she has a very long slender body-periscoping she can easily see to the top of a 2ft high run. She's also got a very long thin face. Here's some pic's....

she looks very hare-like, or maybe an English Black Self.

She does look very like a rex except for the fur, I would guess a rex cross, as rex's also don't have long whiskers like that. This is my rex, as you can see the shape of the head and body is very similar although Oidhche is bigger.

yes she does look quite rex like but as you say without the fur (lovely pic's by the way!) I thought she was quite hare like too as she very long and slender, I managed to find a pic of a black self english and it does look similar, I think she's quite a bit smaller though?- I'm assuming she's done most of her growing!

The more i look, the more i can not see rex or mini rex :? whiskers are too long and the fur is not rex fur at all by the looks of things.. :?

Id put my money on hare cross :wave:

When you stroke the fur backwards, is it harsh against your hand and flies back into place, or does it just roll slowly back into place?

If fly back, I'd say the rabbit is probably a self English (basically a pure english, without the spots). If roll back, then she could be a cross of a few different breeds

Looks more like English spot than hare to me, I thought the fur and face looks rexy :love:

There are some pics of Luna at Fife Rabbit Rescue here, she is a permanent resident and is a black self English too :)

Thanks for the suggestions everyone, it's seems the majority think she's an english, I didn't know they came in black :oops: but she does look similar the the beautiful buns in the pic's people have posted, and yes she is very very fast- there's a black blur wizzing round the room as I type!
Anyway I guess I'll never know for sure. At the min she's very sleek and slender and weighs a less than an english should I think? but I suppose she may fill out a bit as she gets older.
