Our Hobs



Sydney

Sydney

*Champagne sable 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. We have high hopes for Sydney, he has a tiny frame and very slender build and seems to reliably pass this down to his offspring.



Henry

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 confident little man, although he is larger than his Dad. Henry was castrated in December as he appeared to have the same seasonality confusion as his Mum and was taking it out on Sydney.



Basil

Basil

*Sable bibbed miniature hob
*Born August 2013
*Entire
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 certainly seems so far to be a gentle lad, with a very nice nature towards people and other ferrets and is in very good health. We hope Basil will pass down his size and temperament!



Barley

Barley

*Champagne sable mitt miniature hob
*Born May 2015
*Vasectomised
Barley came from a small greyhound/micro breeder on the Wirral and he has some good genetics! He is brother to Freddie, Willow and Fern. He is a gentle hob kit with a sharp pointed face. Very beautiful and very sweet. Barley is our v-hob, being such a gentle boy, it is up to his sisters to pass on the line.



Ash

Ash

*Sable miniature hob
*Born 9th August 2015
*Nutmeg x Sydney
*Entire
Ash is the first true 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! Hopefully he will pass this down and help to keep solid and robust minis in future litters!



Eli

Eli

*Dark silver mitt miniature hob
*Born 27th August 2015
*Petal x Sydney
*Entire
Eli is the most exciting kit to be born here at Mischief Maker this year. He is exceptionally small but a verty 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.



Dock

Dock

*Sable miniature hob
*Born 19th May 2016
*Fern x Eli
*Entire
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.



Flint

Flint

*Sable mitt miniature hob
*Born 29th May 2016
*Willow x Basil
*Entire
Flint is the long awaited hob here at Mischief Maker - the first litter by Basil here after many failed matings from him. Flint is not related to Mischief at all, and will keep new blood in the line. It's a bonus that he is so incredibly stunning with it. He is a hugely people-oriented ferret and is very agile and quite naughty! Not happy unless he is on my head or shoulders!



Tarka

Tarka

*Dark sable part miniature hob
*Born 31st May 2016
*Entire
Tarka is Enya's brother and is a beautiful young hob. His adult size is unknown as yet, but he is truly stunning with a temperament to match. I hope that Enya and Tarka will bring dark sables back into our kits in the future.



Thistle

Thistle

*Sable part miniature hob
*Born 16th May 2016
*Entire - implanted
Thistle is a little hob we reserved very early on in the season, being 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, possibly matching Barley in size, but he has that gorgeous teddy bear face like our best hobs and a wonderful soft temperament.



Brin

Brin

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



Stinker

Stinker

*Sable harlequin half miniature hob
*Born May 2016
*Entire
Stinker joined us from another ferretry where he previously fathered some absolutely stunning kits. He is a very balanced hob with a superb temperament and beautiful markings.



Reggie

Reggie

*Silver miniature hob (46.875% polecat, 3.125% angora)
*Born May 2017
*Entire
Reggie has joined us from another breeder 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.
