Then shouldn't she have a "mane" face and flopped over ears? Though I gotta say, I prefer rabbits that have up ears, flopped just doesn't look right kinda like goats without ears.

It might take a couple generations to get the ears to flop. Its a 50/50 mutt, so what the baby gets genetic-wise is a gamble. Some don't have any mane or very few wispy hairs.

The Lionhead standards have gone to heck. They're basically double maned now, or just a long haired fiber rabbit instead of a rabbit that looks like, you guessed it, a maned lion!

One of her siblings has flopped ears :)
She has pretty long fur, not as long as a purebred Lionhead. Her dam is double-maned and skirted...lots of fur!
This is her littermate
