View Full Version : Rabbit moult or something more?

Joey bun is a dwarf lop with a wispy, fluffy, cuddly coat. Recently long fur has been coming out along his spine and few wee tufts from his chest. The fur on his chest leaves behind fur that looks the same, but along his back the fur underneath is very short and darker in colour. Is this the beginnings of a winter coat coming through?

I have only owned a lionhead prior to him, whose coat stayed quite similar but 'mane' got a bit smaller and he changed colour a bit.

Several of my buns are moutling at the moment. It sounds normal to me :)

I was really worried as he looks terrible! I was just surprised the undercoat is so much shorter than his summer one. He does groom and is eating and drinking fine. Guess I should get him used to getting brushed to tidy him up!

Oliver has been moulting for what seems like forever - I do wonder why he isn't bald yet! My poor vacuum cleaner can't cope - there is fluff EVERYWHERE!

No doubt as soon as he's done, Ebs will probably start moulting!
