Henry looks like a right rat bag...

Post by woodwench on Sat Jul 25, 2015 9:45 pm

This moult is nothing like the one in Feb/Mar. He is really going for it this time and there are patches of fur of all lengths all over him and there's wisps floating off in his slip stream as he charges around. I spend ages brushing/plucking him. He looks a right mess, but he's full of energy and eating like a dozen buns ... the hay is disappearing so fast, which makes me very happy. But I can't remember any of my other rabbits ever moulting like this.

Oh bless him. Holly being a Rex, sheds very little fur but there are the odd strands which are showing up quite regularly.  When I have had longer haired bunnies I found it very therapeutic plucking the lose strands out of their fur, they seemed to like it too.

I've always found the summer coat moult worse than the winter coat moult!!

My two haven't started yet... Junior has bad moults but Molly's aren't too bad.

Junior looks very like a golden-brown Henry. His coat looks of a similar type as well, dense and fine. The ears are quite similar too.
Yes, plucking is theraputic. Henry quite likes it too, until I inadvertently tug at a rooted bit!No
