Though in some groups/pairs this is how it works out to be, I've found that grooming hierarchy is generally a different and more complicated process than just who's in charge getting the most grooming and giving out the least.Rabbits do not lick for salt. Communal grooming is essential to rabbit society. Rabbits groom others in accordance to their social standing in the group. The alpha grooms no one, as my one lower is expected to groom others in order to be groomed by others. When you pet the rabbit they see that as grooming.
