Sure! The Palomino rabbit breed is a relatively new breed that originated in Washington state, United States, in the 1940s. It was created by Mark Young by crossing a female Standard Chinchilla rabbit with a male Californian rabbit.
Palomino rabbits are medium to large in size, weighing between 8 to 11 pounds (3.6 to 5 kg). They have a commercial body type with a broad head, strong shoulders, and muscular hindquarters. The fur is short and dense, with a soft texture and a glossy sheen. The coat color is a rich golden tan, with a deeper tone on the back and lighter tones on the belly and legs. The eyes are large and dark brown.
Palomino rabbits are known for their docile and friendly personalities, making them great pets. They are also valued for their meat and fur, as well as for showing in rabbit competitions.
In the 1950s, the Palomino rabbit breed was recognized by the American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA) and has since gained popularity worldwide. Today, the breed is considered endangered due to low numbers, and efforts are being made to increase its population size.
