Silly Wabbit, Jokes are for Judges!

Laughter is good for the soul.

Laughter is good for the soul.

When we go to a rabbit show I am always very eager to hear what a judge has to say about our rabbits. I’m interested in all the comments, because if I can start seeing what a judge is seeing when they evaluate, I will only get better at breeding toward the Standard of Perfection at home.


There are many times I begin to feel a little sorry for a judge, however. When faced with a table of multitudes of rabbits that are practically identical, how on Earth do judges come up with something to say about every single rabbit?! Those judges who come up with creative descriptions get my kudos – and a nod toward a legacy with their words being immortalized in the blog-o-sphere!


Here are some of the most memorable judges comments shared by other rabbit breeders:

“This buck poses like a football player because he leans forward and braces like a linebacker.”

“This doe has shoulders like a quarterback.”

“Flat as road kill…”

“The head is just horrible but behind that, it’s Disneyland!”

“This doe just isn’t wearing her party dress today.” (with fur flying from molt)

“(I’d) only like Lionheads if they had a long tail with a broom type fur at the end & fangs!”

“(She’s) so little she still had milk on her breath.”

“Very nice buck, but the color is Yuck!”

“Nice arse.”

{Rabbit molting} “An outstanding individual but just needs a fresh coat of paint.”

“This rabbit would look great, (big pause) in a big pot right next to some potatoes & carrots.”

“This is a movie star rabbit – she’s got the body of Marilyn Monroe and the head of Phyllis Diller.”

English Spot who was congested: “And the hunter didn’t quite get him.. The pellets all hit here.”

“You can bounce a quarter off that rabbits back.”

A judge kissed one of my Florida Whites and asked her, “As cute as you are, I wonder if you would be just as tasty?!”

“This one seems to be a little over conditioned.”

“This doe has a butt ‘SMOOTH AS BUTTER!”

“This guy has such incredible fur, I just want to rub him all over me.”

Years ago someone asked a breeder how she got such nice, big rear ends on her Satins after winning BOB and BOS. Her response: I walk down the barn and tell them “Look at momma!”

“Really nice coat and not a lick of sense.”

“Lacking color…” (on a REW!)

A judge back a {my rabbit} and said “pick another one to love.”

“Looks like moths got to this one.”

“This animal’s coat is so dense that if I stuck my face down next to it, it would literally punch me in the face!”


Thank you, judges, for keeping us entertained – we look forward to the next round of fun descriptions!
