    It will be a ring for showing, all rabbits that are shown have to have one, it's just to identify your rabbit at the show.

    You can take it off if u need infoon how
    to do that pm me x

    Take to the vet and get the ring cut off, dont try yourself as you might clip the leg.
    Dont be shocked if the bun is bald under the ring, they are put on between 4-8 weeks old :D

    I put Vaseline on all of mine and it came straight off, cheaper than the vets.
