Most moult. It's the worst season of the year for bun owners, lol. Taking them outside to get fur off is a good way, just start pulling it off in the wind.;)

You'll see lighter hair colors sticking out from the back, these can be pulled. It's just a process, takes a month or so, depending on where u live and the weather.:)

unfortunately this is the nature of the beast,,rabbits are consumate chewers and groomers-definitely increase grasses and water consumption during molting periods.//.brushing or using damp hands wil help,,so as the rabbit will not ingest as much fur--sincerely james waller,,fruit tree branches/twigs (from the safe list http://www.medirabbit.com )-will alsocontrol teeth-,and aid digestion...:wink

we feel your pain--all of ours look out of focus right now. The funny thing is that they don't all shed the same--Peter has patches, Char goes from bottom to top ending with a Mohawk look, Serena has an all-over out of focus look, etc. Hair everywhere and you can't brush enough.

Yeah the more often you groom and help them get rid of the old coat that is loosening off, the faster and easier it will go. Outdoors if you can, to prevent loose fur from running all over the home! I didn't realize summer was the worst season of molting until all 3 of mine synch'ed their molt clock up in June. Eep!

Hearing you. Guy's coat looks a little scruffy because of moulting and there is white "Guy Fur" all over his level of the hutch every day.
