Cashmere Lop

Category: Breed of the Month
Posted by: emma

Originally appearing in litters of Dwarf Lops when its luxuriously soft coat resembled the fur of the Cashmere goat, enthusiasts persevered to standardise the new breed and in the mid 1980's the BRC recognised the Cashmere. A popular exhibition animal produced in many colours (this is the Sealpoint), the Cashmere requires expert housing and daily grooming and handling so seek advice from breeders before considering taking up this breed. Weight 4 - 5.4 lbs (2.15 - 2.381 kgs).
