...when it's time to show. After paying entry fees....LATE ($$) entry fees I might add since I spaced it off....for the State Fair, we went out to the bunny barn to find this:
This is Izzy, T's Castor Mini Rex. She's the queen around here. She USUALLY has wonderfully perfect soft fur that is the color of a beer bottle. This moment she resembles a dog with mange. She's molting or as we call it in the bunny world, "blowing her coat". Rabbit do this usually once a year and its totally normal. They will end up with a nice new coat afterward. However, I think ours are doing it on purpose. A bunny protest against showing.
One of J's Californians is doing the same thing. We are hoping with a bit of brushing we can get most of it out, but that doesn't meant the new coat will be "in" and finished by fair time.Oh well.
