The Moult.

Annie starting her moult.

The moult has arrived in the bunny shed, well sort of.  Annie & Thumper are the only two who are really going for it this year.  Annie started a couple of weeks ago but hasn’t really needed combing.  As you can see in the photo, the desk mat does a good job of collecting the loose fur.  Thumper is the only bunny so far who has needed a good comb.

You can see from the photo above how he goes from the dark chocolate brown, from his eye, through to the much paler brown starting on his back with a few ginger bits on his shoulder. Every year is different & this year is no exception, this time he’s gone for the Panda eye look! Continue reading Panda Eyes!
