We are pleased to welcome back at Rossendale Stud. One of the oldest Breeds of Rabbits The Chinchilla. We did have some a few years ago unfortunately things didn't quite go to plan & we had to let them go.

Our love for them was re kindled Summer 2017. At Keighly Show . We saw 2 beautiful young Boys, We sought out the owner Jack Holdsworth. On chatting to him he said he was happy to let us have one of them at the end of the year.

True to his word Young Jack arrived just before Christmas 2017. Another true gent Paul Morris sought out a Doe for us all the way from Cornwall & here we are with our lovely Rita. Her 1st show Best in the Fur section.
