I just finished grooming all the rabbits and let me tell you, it is quite the job! There may only be three of them, but now that their coats are really starting to grow out it has become a thrice weekly task. Thistle’s wool is at about 2 inches long so he definitely requires grooming three times every week. Dandelion is coming in at 1 1/2 inches and Clementine is only at 1 inch. The rabbits’ wool coats should get to be 3-5 inches long before they start to shed or “blow” their coats.
The two girls are naturally cleaner and so, naturally, I enjoy grooming them. Thistle on the other hand is a boy. And like all boys, he is stinky and messy. Ewww. I cleaned him up as much as I could on my own and tomorrow I’ll have Trevor hold him so I can just clip his whole underside. Or as I like to say: his undercarriage. I think trimming him up will help keep his “messes” to a minimum. Hopefully.
