Our Polish

We have always had a weak spot for

Sarrah bred and showed them for many years
when she was a youth. Their smaller size and stable temperaments made them an excellent youth rabbit.
Even after Sarrah was grown she and her mom, Gail,
continued to show this wonderful breed. The Polish
only left when the cage space was needed
for presentation of the Lionhead breed.
Now that we no longer have that demand on us
we are happily rebuilding a herd of Polish.
We went back to Minnesota and our roots in the breed,
bringing back to Kansas the very bloodlines that
we had left behind.

Abby will now follow in her mothers footsteps and
begin to bred and show these wonderful little
rabbits for herself. We wish her the best of luck!

A touch of magic . . . . . .

The symbol of three hares chasing one another in an everlasting circle has appeared
for over a thousand years of human history. In times before ours the hare had a reputation
as a magical creature but why this exact rendition of three hares - ears touching to
form a triangle space in the center is found world wide no one knows?

We do know that this motif of the three entwined hares is found in MANY different cultures.
The earliest known examples are found in Buddhist cave temples in China, dating from
600 CE. The three dancing hares have also been found on Islamic metalwork, in 13th century
Mongol works, and on Iranian copper coins dated to 1281. It has been used to illustrate
Christian manuscripts and to decorate the the roof bosses (carved wooden fixtures) in the
ceilings in almost 30 medieval churches in England. They have also been found on the
ceilings in a Jewish synagogue as well as other churches throughout France and Germany.

This symbol always features three hares chasing each other in a circle. Each of the ears is shared by
two animals so that only three ears are shown, yet to the human eye each animal has two ears.

The hare or rabbit has a number of magical associations. They were believed to have mystical links to the
feminine because of their fertility. Their elusive behavior and nighttime appearances often seemed governed
by the moon reinforcing their reputation as a magical creature.

and a touch of mystery . . . . . . However, the precise origin and significance of these dancing hares is
uncertain, as are the reasons it has appeared for hundreds of years in diverse locations around the world?
