Breeding and raising quality rabbits


The Rhinelander was developed by a postmaster in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, around 1900. The breed got its start from a cross between a Harlequin buck and a common gray-checkered doe and from a separate pairing between a Harlequin buck and a Checkered Giant doe. Using a buck from the first cross, who resembled a Rhinelader, and a doe from the second pairing, the breeder began to develop his vision. He bred the best examples from each litter and crossed the best does back to Harlequin bucks. In so doing he succeeded in producing the Rhinelander, and in 1905 the breed was given a standard in Germany. the Rhinelander was first brought to the United States in 1923 and was recognized as a breed in 1924. By 1932, he was no longer found in the United States. Some experts have speculated that the breed died out due to the difficulties in breeding a rabbit who met the breed standard or because people preferred the more popular Checkered Giant. Rhinelanders were again imported into the United States in 1972 and in 1975, the breed was once more accepted into the ARBA Book of standards. The Rhinelander is considered a "watch" breed by the ALBC (American Livestock Breeds Conservancy) because there are fewer than 200 annual registrations in the United States and an extimated global population of fewer than 2,000.  " Good Rabbitkeeping, A comprehensive Guide to all Things Rabbit" by Sue Fox
