View Full Version : Dented forehead/fur?

Rum & Raisin seem have what looks like dents in their fur on their head.

To begin with I thought they'd just slept funny as that's really what it looks like, but it's been nearly a couple of weeks now and the buns look like they've been branded with a big imprinted W shape on their forehead. Particularly noticeable on Rum who we now refer to as "dent-head".

Is this normal?

(sorry for lack of pics, it doesn't seem to show up very well on camera)

Are they moulting?

*sniggers*

Same question as above. I had a bunny who got a ridge of fur all the way down her spine when moulting, she looked like a dinosaur.

Yeah they are moulting, is that really all it could be?

Probably...unless they're experimenting with backcombing.

Have you been giving them hairstyle tips again?

Could also be grooming related too? Gilbert gets this when Parsley has been too attentive with grooming. So maybe Raisin is being a bit overzealous while they are both moulting so compounding the problem?

Sounds very much like moulting. Alfie got a line across his nose last year, that gradually moved up his face as he moulted. :lol::lol: I'm not sure if you can make it out in my siggy photo, but there's a huge 'V' across his face, going from the tip of his ears and down towards his nose.

Leos currently got a V shape on his nose. I'm guessing it's to do with moulting as well :roll:

I guess grooming is probably the best explanation, they only seem to groom each others head (and get bored a couple of licks in), poor Rum looks so funny and it's really noticeable!

I suspect it just makes them even more adorable. ;)

it's due to them moulting. I think it looks so funny - their faces end up looking grumpy. Moo's is like this at the moment and I keep pulling hers!

Moulting!

Every year Pumpkin (and Parsnip before her who was same colouring) get a small V which turns into a 'star' and before you know where you are they have developed HUGE grey eyebrows!!!!!!

A couple of my wildie crosses have 'V's on their noses. I thought at first an alien had got to them but I think now it's moulting.
