Posing Semi-Arch Breeds

About Semi-Arch Type

   Semi-arched type rabbits are longer in the body with a definite arch beginning to rise at the rear of the shoulders continuing to round over the back and hips flowing down to the base of the tail. 

   

   The high point should occur above the center of the hips. A profile view shows a taper from the hindquarters to the shoulders resembling the arched shape of half a mandolin. The semi-arch type is sometimes referred to as mandolin type.


   Semi-arched rabbits are posed with the front feet positioned directly under the eyes and the toes of the rear feet should be directly under the hips.
