Angora rabbits, like all rabbits, enjoy being outside. When it is dry weather, try to let your Angoras out in a run on grass so they can exercise, obtain fresh air and eat grass. They are fun to watch as they tend to do flying kicks, leap in the air and get up to all sorts. Be careful not to leave them out too long or unattended as they enjoy digging and prove good escape artists.

The National Angora Club was founded in 1963 and was created from the amalgamation of the United Angora Rabbit Club (UARC) and the British Angora Rabbit Society (BARS).  From its inception the president of the club was Mrs Barbara Pratley (Willowbank).  She is one of the breed’s most influential figures both from a exhibition and products point of view.  Her impressive mark will be forever left on the breed and the club.

Angora rabbit drinking from a water bottle

Angora rabbits need water as part of their daily routine. Wild rabbits tend to get sufficient water from eating grass and greens whilst domesticated rabbits have a largely dry diet and need to have additional water supplied in their cages. This can be through a bottle attached to the cage door held in place by a wire or a cup that hooks onto the wire door or a ceramic bowl within the cage. It is especially important to ensure they have adequate water supplies in hot weather, and that their bowls or bottles do not freeze in winter. Nursing does have a high demand for water due to milk production, and their water supply should be checked frequently.

Everyone will have their own way of doing things when it comes to keeping their own Angora rabbits. This is the routine of an experienced breeder. Rabbits can be fed once or twice a day and appreciate being fed at the same time or times every day.
