I am Kassi Sieber-Laughlin of Sieber's Mini Lops and I have been raising Mini Lops since 1976. Yes, that was 38 years ago way before they were even a breed recognized by ARBA. My sister Shelley and cousin Lori started showing Mini Lops and I wanted to follow in my big sisters shoes. Little did I know it would end up lasting 38 years. My first ARBA convention was Seattle in 1982 where we won 1st place Broken Sr Buck and 1st place Broken Sr Doe. In 1989 after the ARBA convention my Mom started to show with me up until her passing last August. Over the last 38 years we have won multiple Best of Breeds and Best opp. Breeds at ARBA & National shows as well as winning a Best in Show and Best Group at ARBA conventions. Took the last few years off of breeding and showing rabbits but recently started to get motivated again...largely because of Robert Laughlin of Voodoo Lops. Yes, we are married but no our herds are not combined. We run two herds out of our barns which keeps us competitive with each other as well as on the show table. Looking forward to meeting everyone at future shows.
