The key to judging is finding that Holland Lop that has the fewest numbers of faults. The faults on each of the remaining rabbits are then compared and the Holland Lop that comes closest to perfect, in the judge's opinion, is then awarded first place. Condition can play a big factor at this point in the game. All other things being equal, will award a higher placing to a good rabbit in poor condition over a lesser quality Holland Lop that has superb condition. There are two reasons for this. First, there are very few points on condition in the Holland Lop standard. Second, condition will come and go, but type is always there. The good rabbit that is out of condition is almost always more valuable in a breeding program.
