"Dov", named by Kathryn Brown, is blue buck, showing rings of color in his baby coat typical of the agouti gene in his background. His sire, Browndorff's Ashen, was chosen for our breeding program due to his charcoal, less dilute black wool at his high percentage. We strive to retain dark color when breeding back up to 100%, and Magnolia carries this trait in her baby coat, and should have darker adult wool than most Germans with her percentage.
All our German angoras for sale, even under 100%, have matt-free coats that do not require daily brushing when sheared every 90 days.
All Browndorff Rabbits are handled daily from a few days after birth. Germans make great pets and are also the top wool producing breed of angora - growing an average of 4-5 lbs of luxury fiber per rabbit every year!
Sire: Browndorff's Ashen, 93.5% German Black.
Dam: Whispering Pine's Jasmine's Willow, 86% Black.
For info on raising German Angoras, visit the IAGARB.com site and read articles written by US German Angora co-op raisers. Articles on other angora breeds do not necessarily contain accurate info on Germans. German Angoras must be sheared every 90 days, and produce up to 1 lb of fiber per shearing.
