Exhibition and Pet Rabbits: by Meg Brown (Author)

As a domesticated animal, rabbits have been reared and managed for at least 3,000 years. This book is concerned with the management of rabbits purely as a hobby, or for the fascinating extension of shows and exhibitions. For the latter, rabbits are bred to comply with the standards and, of course, must be in good health and condition.
