Our Hobs


HAH Sydney

*Champagne miniature hob
*Born April 2007
*Retired breeding hob
Sydney joined us in July 2014 to take over as our main breeding hob. He came, along with Snowy, Chocolate, and later, Henry and Flower, from a very committed and longstanding miniature ferret breeder in Yorkshire. Sydney is a wonderful boy, gentle and cuddly. He has helped raise litters and is a lovely boy with other ferrets. Sydney has had some wonderful kits here and will now live out his retirement.


HAH Henry

*Albino miniature hob
*Born April 2014
*Snowy x Sydney
*Castrated - not for breeding
Henry was bred by Sydney's breeder and came to us in August 2014 along with his sister, Flower. He is a very sweet little man, although he is larger than his Dad. Henry was castrated when his mother, Snowy, was diagnosed with lymphoma to ensure only healthy lines are continued.


JB Basil

*Sable bibbed miniature hob
*Born August 2013
*Retired breeding hob
Basil came from a micro breeder in Barnsley who was giving up breeding ferrets due to lack of time. I feel very lucky to have brought this little man home as he is only about 11 inches in length and is certainly no bigger than Sydney. Basil is a gentle lad, with a very nice nature towards people and other ferrets. He has had some very impressive kits here and is now retired.


CFW Barley

*Champagne mitt miniature hob
*Born May 2015
Barley came from a small greyhound/micro breeder on the Wirral and he has some good genetics! He is brother to Willow and Fern. He is a gentle hob who is sweet with people and other ferrets. Barley is our v-hob, being such a gentle boy, it is up to his sisters to pass on the line.


Mischief Maker's Ash

*Sable miniature hob
*Born 9th August 2015
*Nutmeg x Sydney
Ash is the first miniature hob bred here at Mischief Maker and is a very special little boy. He has a stunning temperament and is a complete sweetheart. I am really happy to say that he is a chunky miniature. Some miniatures seem to struggle to gain and retain weight but I'm happy to say Ash is a solid little man - everything a hob should be, just a bit smaller! He has had some beautiful litters and may be bred again in the future!


Mischief Maker's Eli

*Dark silver mitt miniature hob
*Born 27th August 2015
*Petal x Sydney
Eli was the most exciting kit to be born at Mischief Maker in 2015. He is very small but a very robust little hob, and has a superb temperament to go with it. He has brought silver back after the passing of his grandfather, Marley. He is a very friendly little hob brilliant with people and other ferrets.


Mischief Maker's Dock

*Sable miniature hob
*Born 19th May 2016
*Fern x Eli
*Entire - implanted
Dock is the perfect combination of his Mum and Dad and has the most gorgeous temperament. He has the same small size as both parents and just the nature we aim for.


GW Tarka

*Blak self part miniature hob
*Born 31st May 2016
Tarka is Enya's brother and is a beautiful hob. He is small standard, but he is truly stunning with a temperament to match. Tarka has had some amazing babies here, and some have gone on to be show winners in their new homes. His comformation is exceptional.


SL Thistle

*Sable part miniature hob
*Born 16th May 2016
Thistle is a little hob completely unrelated to our own and from another mini breeder who started out the same time as we did. Thistle is not the smallest hob here, possibly matching Barley in size, but he has that gorgeous teddy bear face like our best hobs and a wonderful soft temperament.


Mischief Maker's Brin

*Sable half miniature hob
*Born 28th April 2016
*Tweasle x Sydney
*Entire - implanted
Brin is a lovely small standard hob with a chunky build and very loveable temperament. He has a wonderful head shape and carries chocolate which is a huge bonus.


DCG Reggie

*Silver miniature hob (46.875% polecat, 3.125% angora)
*Born May 2017
*Entire - implanted
Reggie has joined us from a good friend we exchange bloodlines with. He has a very unusual lineage for such a small hob. We are as yet unsure when and if we will use Reggie in our lines. He is a nice small, robust hob with a lovely temperament.


PJW Silver

*Silver miniature hob
*Born May 2014
Silver is a beautiful hob gifted to us this year. He has already proven himself in his previous home and has settled right in here. I am looking forward to seeing his babies in 2019!



*Lilac miniature hob
*Born 3rd May 2018
Sisal is an absolutely stunning hob who I feel very lucky to have. He is a very sensible young hob, with a kind nature. He is lovely and compact and I hope he will pass this down to his kits in the future.


MW Peridot

*Dark sable miniature hob
*Born 23rd May 2018
Peridot is a very handsome little hob, and is very cheeky as well. He has lovely dark colouring and I hope he will produce some lovely kits in the future.
